Rogues, The

The Rogues was a band that Bruce played with, as a guitarist and occasional vocalist, sometime between Christmas 1964 and Springsteen's audition for Tex Vinyard. This band consisted of Jay Gibson on lead guitar, Craig Caprioni on vocals bass, Donnie Powell on drums and occasional vocals, and Jimmy McGuire, initially on bass. McGuire's bass was not plugged in but he was in the band due to the fact he owned an amp. The band practiced in the basement of 68 Barkalow Avenue, Craig Caprioni's house. They played mostly instrumentals, but Bruce did take lead vocals for "Twist And Shout".
