It was during this time that Harold taught himself to play the saxophone. 

 

In high school he began playing nightclubs with older musicians and they formed a band called the Apollos.  Later, the younger musicians left the group to form their own band and they called themselves The Planets.  For over seven years as a member of The Planets they toured the country performing with many artist including B.B.
