THE NEW GENERATION

Tommy Caldwell, Danny Powell, Bart Foster, Ross Hanna, Doug Gray  - 1966-67

The Toy Factory was formed after Toy returned from VN, 1968

Toy and Tommy Caldwell, Jerry Eubanks, Paul Riddle, George McCorkle opened for the Allman Brothers Band Oct 1970, after Tommy’s early discharge.

During the early years, there were several jam sessions, and several musicians. But at no time was Toy NOT going to play in a band with Tommy. The brief time there was a different bass player was after Tommy enlisted in the Marines in 1970, but with his early discharge, it was a very brief time.
