Rare Earth – Get ready

Really good, good years for music.
And many memories of the contemporaries … I’m in too.

Get ready – a great song!
Strangely, I was listening to that about a week ago.

That is a great cover at Harrison’s hall of fame induction. Here’s a fun article about it. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/28/arts/music/prince-guitar-rock-hall-of...

Concert for George is one of my favorite dvds.
Prince takes it a bit further in this video.

Very surprised.
I know that Prince was a multi-instrumentalist, but this does not imply such proficiency in one instrument.

In his first album (For You he is the orchestra-man. He plays all instruments and vocals.
I remember then that I could not believe that only one performer could play on everything. Smile

And once again a link to the performance of gentlemen enjoying spring in California (44 years and 6 months ago):

If I don’t know/not sure what music I would like to listen ATM, Bachman Turner Overdrive is always around:

Bachman Turner Overdrive – You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet 1974

Bachman Turner Overdrive – Let It Ride. Live

From the YT comments:

Quote:
BTO had the talent and potential to be one of the greatest rock bands of the time!
But fell short and never achieved the brass ring?

For me they achieved the brass ring! Smile

I’ve watched the Price solo many times, before and after his unfortunate and way premature death.It’s still goose bump inducing.

I’m a bass player since 1969. This is the ultimate bass line ever created by John Paul Jones. It’s isolated from the rest of the band (Led Zeppelin)

One of my fave “solid wall of bass” tunes is the live (MTV) version of Massive Attack’s “Safe From Harm”.

Bonham:
I remember in 1974 when BTO released their “Not Fragile” album, around the same time that Bad Company released their first.
Both were big sellers, but Bad Co became much bigger, probably due to the talent of Paul Rogers.

atbglenn: John Paul Jones certainly was one of the great base players.
Another two I would mention from that era would be John Entwhistle, and Chris Squire from Yes.

Lightbringer: On the original Massive Attack album, that drum and base was sampled from Billy Cobham’s song Stratus, featuring Billy on drums and Leland Sklar on base.
IMHO I think Billy Cobham is one of the all time great drummers.
I mentioned meeting him earlier in this thread, and saw him play Stratus live in a small jazz venue.

May John Entwistle and Chris Squire rest in peace. They both were amazing bass players.
Leland Sklar, what a great session bass player. A freind of mine met him years ago. He told me he was super nice. A real down to earth kind of guy.

I saw Mahavishnu Orchestra with Billy Cobham back in the mid 70’s. What a great drummer.

Edit: A side note here. When John Entwistle died of a heart attack in 2002 from cocaine, I stopped doing drugs incuding cocaine cold turkey. I’ve never looked back. Today I’m a healthy 66 year old.

Please kids, don’t do drugs. It will end up bad in your later years.

Robowski, I’m fully agree with you about Paul Rogers. One of the best rock singer ever. Great voice…

atbglenn, I will say again that I envy you very much because of the opportunity to see many of my/our music idols live. And in the appropriate years. Thumbs Up
In the 70s I heard for Mahavishnu Orchestra and John McLaughlin just as one of the best solo guitarists and nothing more.

As I remember then there was a legend that Ginger Baker can keep a penny of the wall, playing over it. I do not even know if this is true … Innocent

John Bonham and Ginger Baker. Both supreme drummers. My band back in the early 70’s used to play Led Zeppelin and Cream songs along with Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead songs in local Bars. We weren’t that bad.

Can you share a video of your group from that time?

No videos, unfortunately. You have to remember, there were no cell phones at the time. There are reel to reel audio tapes out there somewhere. I’ll see if I can locate one or two.

Ooooh, you wanna talk drummers? Jukka Nevalainen. Way way up on my top… 1?

Watch the entire “End Of An Era” concert in one shot, and you’ll be emotionally drained and broken down by the end. It’s that intense.

On the outside you haven’t followed Michael Schenker after UFO (eg, Scorpions, MSG), check out, well, the entire “Adventures of The Imagination” album.

No pesky lyrics or vocals or anything to get in the way. LOL

I could listen to that album all day. Probably have, too.

Thanks again for some more good tunes Guys,

I haven’t heard of Nightwish before .. that is some crazy stuff, like Andrew Lloyd Webber on ice…and I don’t mean the skating rink type!
Still, good to discover.

atbglenn – Never say a photo’s not very good – a slightly grainy black and white memory like that is priceless.
I just wish I had more photos of my youth, but not many of us even had a camera in those days.

The quality of photos is quite good.

You look in very good condition also. Thumbs Up
I guess this is a school party. It’s not a Marshall at back, but I’m sure you remember all the instruments in details. Smile

We also had such a group(s) in the school. Then we listened mostly Deep Purple, Rainbow, Uriah Heep, Grand Funk, Black Sabbath, Sweet, Slade, Styx, Boston, Chicago, Journey, Cream, The Guess Who, Manfred Mann, ELP, Bad Co, Creedence, The Who, Eagles, Toto, ZZ Top and many more… Surely I miss a lot.
That was before the army.

Manfred Mann’s Earth Band – Father Of Day, Father Of Night (Live In Stockholm 1973)

I was, and still am into most of the bands you mention. I miss those days too.
Yes, it was a school dance/teen club kind of thing we played at back in the early to mid 70’s. As far as instruments we played. I remember what I played, and basically what the other guys played. I was playing a Rickenbacker 4001 through an Acoustic 360 Bass amp (not shown. Same amp Jaco Pastorius used) The guitar players had a Fender Strat and a Gibson Les Paul. They both played through Acoustc heads into unknown cabs. The drummer had a Ludwig kit. He’s the only one I keep in contact these days. His son is an amazing drummer. We both haven’t played in bands in many years. I still pick up the bass everyday just to keep my fingers going.

Edit: I found an incomplete demo tape with drums, bass, and some guitar on it. I’m playing a frettless Music Man bass on it. It’s a bit boring, but I like the bass part I played. We did this around 1978.

Good memory!
Although, as I’ve heard, if one remembers the distant past better than yesterday, he uh .. he is was very very slightly above middle age. Wink (must be a joke)
This rule is valid for me. Absolutely…

I’m surprised how up-to-date can be a song after nearly 50 years.

Deep Purple – April (1969, with Rod Evans and Nick Simper)


The album cover art is illustration from Hieronymus Bosch. I checked this just because I saw something familiar but forgotten for the moment.

Excellent! Great tune. RIP Jon Lord. You were a master of the keyboards.

Speaking of memory, I remember just about everything when I was young. Being 66 years old, my current memory isn’t that good anymore. So please, if I repeat myself in a thread, forgive me. I’m sure you older folks understand where I’m coming from.
