Biography

San Jose, United States (1964 – 1970)

There are two groups with this name 1) A ’60s psychedelic band from San Jose, California. 2) An English folk-rock band of the 1970’s.

1) Band Members:


Roger Hedge - Rythm guitar, vocals, songwriter
Jim McPherson - Bass guitar, keyboard, vocals, songwriter
Robert Rominger (Bob) - Lead Guitar, songwriter, vocals
Tom Bryant - Lead guitar
Dennis Carrasco - Drums, vocals

More of a folk-rock band than a psychedelic band, Stained Glass started out in 1964 playing Beatles covers. They performed in and around their native San Jose until an A & R man from RCA signed them to the label later that year. Of the multiple singles they recorded, the first two were a mixture of folk and Merseybeat, and met with some local success. The best was “We Got A Long Way To Go”, a driving rock song with immediate appeal, which was a big hit in San Jose during April of 1967. They also had moderate success with a cover of a Beatle tune, “If I Needed Someone” which justified a short tour on the east coast.

They moved to Capitol in the Spring of 1968, issuing three singles and two albums. Of the six 45 sides on Capitol only Lady In Lace, written by McPherson, is non-LP. The tune was backed by “Soap and Turkey” written by Rominger.

    "Gettin' On's Gettin' Rough" has something that makes me smile every time I hear it. Aurora is actually a masterpiece.

    Tad underrated were Stained Glass. The first album's good but Aurora is better. The Kibitzer surfaced on the Copperhead album, too. Though that band tend to be remembered more for their million dollar advance, which was an outrageous amount of cash back in '72/'73, if not now too.
