Description

Color photograph of the band, Infinity's End, performing live in 1968 or 1969. The photograph features the bassist, lead vocalist and drummer. Infinity's End was the first of several bands that Bollea, popularly known as Hulk Hogan, performed with during the late 1960s and early 1970s in Tampa, Florida. Bollea was in ninth grade when he formed the group, and they quickly began performing at weekend parties. Their manager was the father of keyboard player, Gary, and their costume designer was Gary's mother. The band consisted of two guitar players, a drummer, a bassist, and a keyboardist, and performed classic rock hits of the day, such as "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly and various songs by Steppenwolf. After Infinity's End, Bollea performed with the bands Koko and Ruckus, before going on to a career in professional wrestling.
