Another one of those bands I'm surprised we haven't played.
Searching the basement archives and seeing this song hasn't been played. Correcting that oversight now.
Welcome to davidwatts week. Let's get heavy with Joe Walsh.
Jimi Hendrix allegedly told Chicago sax player Walter Parazaider, “Your guitar player is better than me.” In addition to being one of Jimi’s favorites, Terry Kath could sing a little bit, too. This video appears to be from the band’s performance at Tanglewood ‘70.
Kath is a figure in a bit of local lore: On 10 December 1967, Otis Redding was set to play a show in the People’s Republic, at a downtown venue called The Factory. He never made it. Out on the Far East Side, a band formerly called “The Big Thing” was booked at a nightclub. Concertgoers who had intended to see Otis & the Bar-Kays instead turned up to hear this band, which had recently renamed itself “Chicago Transit Authority.”
I still really like this movie.
h/t to free for this video. Just completely insane face melting awesomeness.
Someone on the webz said imagine having a band with D.L. Roth as the frontman, but the band is still named after the guitar player. That's about right.
Sinbad knows how to put on a good concert.
Enjoy the show, you nerds.
Gary does a little cooking of his own here.
