Coast to Coast tonight has discussions with four of the heavyweights of rock.
First hour, interview with Paul Rogers, of the band Free and Bad Company.
This hour, the second hour, Leslie West of Mountain.
Next hour, and something I am especially looking forward to, is Jack Casady, famous bassist from Jefferson Airplane.
Final hour, Sir Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull fame.
Think I got my first copy of that album like summer, 1970
I still think their best was Lark’s Tongue in Aspic
Personalities in that band changed so often that it’s hard to compare.
I’m wondering if this Nifter has ever heard of Procol Harum & Robin Trower?
hmmm...think I need to listen to Bridge of Sighs
Screaming Lord Sutch’s Jack The Ripper worked its way stateside at some point as well:
The One Way Streets (Zainsville Ohio 1960s):
The single today (by the One Way Streets) goes for upwards of $800 if you can even find a copy.
It was good to hear someone in one of the bands say it. I wasn't around at the time but I'd heard the same thing from other sources over the years.
Some pinko would get up there and hijack the stage.
Free music and an opportunity to groove with some chicks in the park. And then some blowhard has to get up there and rant awhile.
Luckily, Pete Townsend refused to play that game when Abbie Hoffman tried to interrupt the Who's set at Woodstock.
Lark’s Tongue in Aspic is one of my all-time top 10 favorite albums.
King Crimson’s “Red” is a classic of the “play it really, really, really, loud” genre.
I tuned in late. I recall hearing a brief discussion about the Airplane’s hits White Rabbit and Someone To Love but did they bother to mention that both were originally composed by The Great Society?
Casady mentioned how sometimes the false history get pushed and you have to get out and do your own research. Just wondering if that bit of history was exposed.
And add the big bopper, the coasters, little richard, ricky nelson, the moody blues...I could go on and on
my point remains...METAL is not the same thing as rock and roll....Jefferson Airplane hardly qualifies as heavy metal...they were more drug rock
