Mitch Schecter

Back to Photos]

Mitch played drums with Pegasus, Witness, and other Philly-area bands in the 1980s. A multi-instrumentalist, he currently plays guitar in the '60s group, The Rip Chords (remember their hits Hey Little Cobra and 409?). Recently he produced a CD, Things Left Undone, with his wife, Amy a trained vocalist who sings in the Philadelphia Choral Arts Society.
This photo was taken in 1976 at a studio in Upper Darby when I was playing in an original Progressive rock band called "MU" (pronounced "Mue").
The guitarist in that band was a guy named David Ricketts, who went on to huge success in the '80s and into today. He co- wrote and played on Sheryl Crowe's first CD, "Tuesday Night Music Club" and has produced many hit songs since then, as well as a solo album called "David & David" (with a hit song, "Boomtown") on A&M Records.

MU was a great band, in the style of Yes.
