Rare Red Devils fliers and backstage pass

Jasper Heikens collected early and rare Red Devils/13 fliers and souvenirs, and shared them on the Lester Butler Tribute Site. Here are some of those images.

Early ’80s Red Devils

The Red Devils began life in the early 1980s as a ferocious California rockabilly band whose classic lineup included Dave Lee and Jonny Ray Bartel, singer Emy Lee and drummer Scott Campbell. These fliers, likely from 1983, are two of the earliest available of the band that would become the Def American blues band The Red Devils.
