A band we will never forget. Many found memories of seeing them between Baraboo and Madison.

Just happened upon a picture of Soup and remembered the name right away. We lived a few houses away from the Yankus's growing up and I remember them practicing in the garage. Hung around with Scott a bit back then.

Yes, thank you, Chris, for putting together this website, which I discovered by chance yesterday, just by googling "Doug Yankus" on a whim. Thank you for the sake of others for whom this might be their only opportunity to hear of the Soup, and for me, mainly because it's the first evidence I've had that I'm not alone in remembering their music as a sublime experience. I heard them several times at a little bar in Madison called Dewie's (and I can't believe I've remembered that name without thinking of it for 40+ years!), probably in 1970-71. It was after Hendrix had left us, because some of my friends thought Doug was Jimi reincarnated. One time, at Dewie's, the Soup was the warmup band for B.B. King. No reflection intended on B.B., also a great musician, but we went mainly to hear the Soup. They were awesome! The mystery of the John Lennon connection is exhilarating. Did they ever record "You've Got to Wave Your Own Flag"?

Doug is still the best guitarist I've ever heard. I tell everyone who will listen how great the band was. I played in a band from Green Bay at the time called Cyrus Witfield. We backed up Soup a handful of times at the Elks Club and various other places in the fox valley. One time our van broke down and we were late, no worries Soup just played first. Talk about a tough act to follow.

Congratulations Chris on putting together this great website commemorating the music of Soup. I purchased their CD a few years back and still listen to it. I saw Soup at least ten times at my father's ballroom Cinderella in the late 60's and early to mid 70's. I was friends with your brother Scott in high school and used to stay over at your house when my parents were out of town. I remember when you were going to St. John's and remember going to the summer home on Green Lake. Hello to all.
