A Band Is Born

The S.O.S. Band started out under the name Santa Monica in 1977, when keyboardist/vocalist Jason Bryant, saxophonists Billy Ellis and Willie "Sonny" Killebrew, guitarist Bruno Speight, bassist John Alexander Simpson, drummer James Earl Jones III, and lead vocalist Mary Davis formed a group called Santa Monica that frequently played at Atlanta nightclub the Regal Room.   (Photo: Raymond Boyd/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)
