MapleLeaf NY Nite Club
One night at the New York Night Club, Jim Collins had put too much Murine eye wash in his eyes and the excess had streamed down his cheeks. When the Tempests went back on stage under the ultraviolet lights, Jims face turned green where ever the Murine had stayed. The following weekend The Tempests became Casper and The Ghosts. The Ghosts were: Dave Casperson Lead, Rhythm and Vocals Lee Tatlock Lead, Rhythm and Vocals Jim Collins Drums Barry Clemens Bass and Vocals Bill Foster Bass and Vocals Each night the band would paint their faces, arms and hands with the Murine. Dave had control of the lights from a set of foot switches in front of him. Therefore he could turn the band into Green Ghosts by shutting off the house lights and activating the ultraviolets. In other words the Ghosts were "Kiss" long before they were ever thought of. People stood in line at the Club to get in to see the band that turned GREEN !
