Okay What Band is This?

A guy brought a poster into my friends music store today and they were trying to figure out who the band was in this poster the guy found in his closet. My buddy texted the picture to me and asked me if I recognized anyone and I do not. So I thought I'd post a link up here with the photo he sent me and see if anyone knows who these guys are. Thanks for looking! [confused]

My guess is Ram Jam of Black Betty fame...

 

It's just a guess, I'm not really a follower but my memory is telling me they look like some of the guys I've seen of them in old vids & pictures...

 

They had alot of different members in their run...

 

I could be completely wrong...

I think Jimi might have got it.

 

While as a youngster we played Black Betty to death,, I never did really know who they were or what they looked like.

 

I found this pic under "One Hit Wonder" in the dictionary.

I can see some resemblance in a couple of these Gomers.

Especially the cool glasses dude.

And maybe the dude he's rubbin his left shoulder on(in both pics).

I have a photographic memory and I went on pure memory with that guess and didn't even google the pic...

 

But I'm gonna say I think my memory served me correct on this one...

 

I'm also gonna say I love that Black Betty tune! And I always liked what I've heard of their stuff...
