August 9th 1980
Dave Hawkins - Vocals / Dave Carey - Guitar / Dave Simms - Bass / David Cristofaro - Drums
I remember this party. We set up in an alley in a small garage. Just when it was getting dark the band ripped through a bunch of songs quite fast. A cop car drove round and we packed up the gear fast and split.

Mark Stone Boot Camp Graduation
Black Sunrise broke up after Mark Stone joined the Navy. In December 1980 Dave & Dave picked me up in San Juan Capistrano where I recently moved and went down to San Diego to watch Mark graduate from boot camp. I mainly remember about the graduation a bunch of guys who all looked alike and
marching about then lots of standing at attention and a guy here and there would faint and fall on the ground.
Later on got a room and hung out with Mark. It was a blast hanging out. Then Dave, Dave and me checked out San Diego for awhile. I remember it being quite fun and smoking alot of dirt weed.
Dave Carey and Dave Simms saved us from getting bored with Tom Foolery and Anxietea.

Gib Arciniega - Guitar / Danny Risberg - Vocals / Brett Scott - Bass / Drake Thompson - Drums
These are photos that were taken by my brother Jim Halbrook. I think from 1977 or early 1978. I remember asking my brother about Danny's absence and he said at this point Danny was in and out of the band. These are photos I am quite happy to have them in my collection. My brother is the opposite of me. He would have lost these years ago whereas my photos are neatly in slip sheets in binders, organized in chronological order.
"Day Of The Eagle"
1979 or early to Mid 1980
Gene Wylee - Vocals / Mark Stone - Guitar / David Carey - Guitar / Kim Calvert - Bass / Tim Gilbert - Drums
Here is Black Sunrise doing a cover of Robin Trower's "Day Of The Eagle"at a party. Sadly I'm not sure of the when or where this was recorded. A real bummer for a fanatic like me who wants to archive every detail for posterity.
This is just exactly how I remember the Black Sunrise parties except alot louder and better sound. I thought Mark & Dave were a tight playing twosome. "Our" very own Keith Richards / Ronnie Wood.
