Introducing you to 1972

and some of the bands that influenced me

This is Trapeze

The bassist and lead singer ( Glen Hughes ) went on to play with Deep Purple

in the 1980's he moved to my home town " Hermosa beach Calif.

Ronny Montrose back in the day

Sammy Hager on Vocals I believe

I drove a 1958 Dodge Panel truck
with a linear amp in it , pushing home stereo speakers
with this pounding out

i think i caused some pot holes in those roads with that

beercheer.gif yay.gif Great older stuff, I saw Saw Sammy Hagar live (one of the first concerts I ever went too) He did a bunch of material from the Montrose days...

This one made me a fan... and one of the first songs our band played together.



Al was great till he hooked up with Van Halen... That just didn't work for me.

Humble Pie was among the first stuff my cousins turned me on to, along with LED Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Bad Co. and doobie.gif at the tender age of 12. lmao.gif
I loved their vibe, Peter Frampton came out of that band.

There may be a Beer and Boobie in the crowd scenes

ya gotta watch the Vids Yankees chuckle.gif

Right JR

Sammy was not exactly a favorite of mine

Frampton did something I'd not do

which was bail on the Band for a Corporate offer

1970 through 1973 were awesome performances

then Corporations took over from the small promoters

and prices on tickets began to climb as the venues became larger
and the amount of bands playing each gig ,,, narrowed down to a single act
per show .

i went to shows that had sometimes 5 bands playing .

and tickets were under $5

I recall the first time I paid more than $5 for a concert

I had to collect gas money from my riders .

I went to many a Grateful Dead show for $2 and $2.50

and there would always be 2 or 3 other bands playing .

at one ,,, Janis Joplin told the audience as she pointed at me just below her ,,,

" That's what I want for Christmas ,, a cute little toy like him "

did I blush ?

yep

from both ends too chuckle.gif

So you are already aware of Montrose

cool school

But Trapeze ?

They were not commercialy well known

but those of us who saw them live ,, DANCED madly and remember them well .

excellent song " Make it last "

lead in lyrics

" I remember when I was just seventeen ,,

My Father told me ,,, son pick your dream ,,

cause life ain't so easy ,,, as it seems "


hell yes
I picked my dream and rode that cloud all my days .

Still sitting astride it right at this moment

who the hell gets to spend life as a consummate Traveler

worry and carefree

I'm a huge Uriah Heep fan! Loved the Roger Dean artwork on their albums.

Most people don't know he was also an architect, and his architecture looked like his art!
