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.
there is a big difference between rock and roll and heavy metal....I had to look up several of these so called bands..they most definitely weren’t rock and roll
It was all rock and roll son. Listen to early Jethro Tull doing Cats Cradle, or any o the Airplane and later Hot Tuna. of course, who could forget the mighty Mountain and Leslie West. Heavy Metal—no—High Energy, Yup!
In Houston Coast to Coast now starts at midnight and is preceded for 2 hours by some loony who plays nothing but audio recordings of ghost screams. Annoying as hell.
What’s it like on the planet you’re from?
Dude, when I was about 9 I saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan and GREW UP listening to stuff like this.
I saw Jorma and Jack at Merriwether years ago..
Maybe on your planet they’re not..
Although I would like to hear 2 hours of Screaming Lord Sutch every night.
I would have loved to see that...
No Alice Cooper? Dave Mustaine? Ted Nugent? Bruce Dickinson? Yngwie Malmsteen?
When people say rock...
Didn’t he go by “Lord Sutch and his heavy friends” for awhile? Man, that brings back the cobwebs!!!
I saw them electric, too, playing with a band called Zero, with John Cipolina playing guitar. Thinking about it, that show was at The Bayou in DC, it must have been damn near 30 years ago!
There was at least one followup live album (that isn't as entertaining as the studio album) and the other albums he released are preferable.
The rock and roll hall of fame will never recognize his contributions to music but like Screamin' Jay Hawkins before him and Alice Cooper after him, he helped bring the theatrical monster stage show to the masses. He also is credited with "discovering" well used session musicians like Nicky Hopkins (I don't know his relationship with Jimmy Page, who also did a lot of session work).
He repeatedly ran for Parliament and some of his campaign issues (like 18 year old vote) became law even without winning office.
I had hundreds of albums on vinyl that I left in New York when I moved west.
Then I accumulated hundreds more, which I loaned to a friend to keep in storage for me when I was moving around and ended up losing those too...
Now if I want to go back and listen to something like Bonnie and Delaney I have to get it from Amazon or whatever...
I’m 27 and I know of all of those bands.
oh well good for you...treat your elders with respect....Mountain is unknown to rock and rollers as is free and bad
