A Hard Rock Band, born in Ballwin, in St. Louis
County, Missouri, in 1973. This Anti-Establishment
Hard Rock Band was contrived amongst the 70's Bubble
Gum Generation (Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, I've got Love in
my Tummy) (EW!) after the demise of The Beatles. Their sound
was very clean, i.e.,
Bachman-Turner Overdrive, but their style
was more "Bluesy" and Cream-Like (
Sunshine of Your Love).
The original members of Tandem, as far as we can tell, were,
Joe Lamastus-Composer-Lead Guitar, Vince Veninga-Rhythm Guitar,
Clayton Veninga-Lead Singer, Neil Ulrich-Bass Guitar, Tom Murphy
-Drums. In the twilight of the group, Bob Glenn, took over duties as
drummer. Tandem disappeared on February 14, 1976, and to date, no
further information has been available. No pictures of Tandem survive
and all that could be found, were, the lyrics of a few songs. Two ledger
books, hidden behind a wall, were found at the family home of Joe H.
Lamastus, in Ballwin, in 2004. One book, with some 18 pages of lyrics, was
composed by someone, named Paul McClaine. McClaine is believed to be one
of the many aliases of Joe Lamastus. The other book contained, a brief history
of Tandem, its members and the lyrics of the 18 songs, below. It is rumored that
some members of Tandem have been spotted in Missouri, now and then, but
we can neither confirm or deny, these allegations. Some of the Tandem's Music
survives to this day and is still played, in a few select night clubs in St. Louis
County, in The Great State of Missouri. In the mean time, we will endeavor to
unravel the mystery, that is,TANDEM!  If you have any information on TANDEM
or its members, please, contact us at:
