  1. Mine too! Foghat/J. Geils/Head East, Winterland, San Fran, 1975.
  2. I saw this a few weeks ago on IDHDTV and was blown away. It was the most incredible footage of the band I have ever seen, and I've seen it all. The sound was crystal-clear. And John's skeleton suit was the best stage-wear ever. I will be getting my copy very soon.
  3. let's see...trying to get into the mind of edna is not easy what would she post? :: It's not The Stones, Beatles, or Starship. Not Bob Seeger, Velvet Underground, or Mott. Not Cohen, Blondie, or the Talking Heads. hmmmmmm.......... I give up Edna, we need a hint.
  4. I remember...great show. Chuck the dummy.
  5. If you define "hit" as reaching the US Billboard top 40 then: Born to Be Wild #2 1968 Magic Carpet Ride #3 1968 Rock Me #10 1969 Straight Shootin' Woman #29 1974 Move Over #31 1969 Hey Lawdy Mama #35 1970 All these and some mentioned above, except "Straight Shootin' Woman", can be found on the 'Steppenwolf 16 Greatest Hits" recording first released in 1973. :guitar: :guitar: ps - I like "Monster" "Snowblind Friend" reached #60 in 1971
  6. Anybody remember that episode of Barney Miller where the squad ate some funny brownies by mistake? Wojo and Yamana were soooo stoned, they were hilarious.
  7. songs refering to the time: 25 or 6 to 4 - Chicago one after 909 - Beatles 9 to 5 - Parton
  8. Yes ChrisRoger you are correct ELO
  9. No on both, but good try Edna Let's see.....unconventional intruments for a rock band, album title is Spanish-sounding.
  10. Sure thing - British band, this LP was released in 1974, I think. It was their 3rd or 4th release and contained one of their early big hits. The band kept going until well into the 1980's. :guitar: I can't think of anything else at the moment. ::
  11. my answer was red hammer. I KNEW I was normal, I gotta go tell my Mom.
  12. Edna's is "Dragon Fly" by Jefferson Starship next:
  13. I have not read mention of Tommy Bolin here in the Songfacts boards, if there was I'm sorry I missed it. This man is one of the most under appreciated gutarists of the 70's. He only released two solo albums (Teaser, Private Eyes) but can be heard on Deep Purple and James Gang recordings. I suggest listening to "Teaser" first and my two favorite tracks "Wild Dogs" and the title track. "Private Eyes" is a more shallow effort but has two supreme guitar tracks, "Post Tostee" and "Shake The Devil." From allmusic.com : "It's hard to listen to the music of Tommy Bolin and not wonder what could've been if the exceptionally talented (and versatile) guitarist hadn't succumbed to a senseless drug overdose at the age of 25 — just as his career appeared to be taking off. In a recording career that lasted only several years, Bolin not only touched upon several styles (blues-rock, ballads, fusion, funk, reggae, and heavy metal), but showed that he could master each one — as evidenced by his two solo albums and various recordings with the likes of Zephyr, Billy Cobham, Alphonse Mouzon, the James Gang, Deep Purple, and Moxy."
  14. This is the way I remember hearing about it back in the early-mid eighties: Dusty was known to keep a small firearm hidden in his boots. Well, the last remaining article of clothing on him while in bed with the women were his Texas snakeskin Tony Lamas. Either he or one of the hookers tried to remove the footware and the gun went off, the bullet striking Dusty in the foot and causing the cancellation of a few shows. Can I get a "YEEE HAW Boy Howdy!!!!"
  15. ZZ Top bassist Dusty Hill reportedly shot himself in the foot accidentally while in bed with several hookers.
  16. I did just about the same thing as you Jr. I did not see any of the concerts "live" last week, just hilights two days ago. I would change channels whenever somebody "suckie" came on; Black Eyed Peas, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Density's Chile, etc. Some bands I don't normally listen to but enjoyed watching (Audioslave, Green Day, Coldplay, I liked that guest singer from the Verve). Some I watched but didn't like (Good Charlotte, Bjork). I thought Pete Townshend played pretty well considering he's 60 something. Pink Floyd was okay, Roger seemed to enjoy himself even though his voice was shot. The one I don't "get" is Robbie Williams. The crowd sure loved him and he has loads of energy, but I just didn't see a lot of talent. McCartney was okay, but I had recently seen a broadacst of his Red Square concert so it was a bit repetitive. I wish I had seen Neil Young.
  17. I need to pitch it all into the wind - KANSAS
  18. College World Series, Rice vs. Tulane
