Well, I saw Mark Farner when he played a church in Covington, Kentucky, and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen! He absolutely *rocked* the place, and then took time to visit first with any of the youth who needed assistance in the area of drug abuse, alcoholism, etc. He said that when he was done with that he would come out and sign autographs. A real first class guy, who turned his life around.

He put out three Christian cd's: the first and third were great, the middle one was awful. Maybe you saw him when he was rehearsing *that* material! :)

The reason we thought it was funny was because of the particular lyric in the part they were rehearsing over and over, and what they meant by it vs the double entendre "Beavis and Butthead" interpretation of it.  It was bad because they rehearsed part of the song for almost an hour, I don't know if they played the whole thing through.  They were probably writing it, trying to work out some different parts.

Remember The Sweet?



How about Sparks?



Raymond has always kinda reminded me of Ron Mael (keyboard player).  ;D

OMG! Your not kidding! That's Raymond to a T! That's gotta be his dad or a very close cousin! ROTFLMAO!

BTW, the Sparks are horrendous! That guy in the short shorts is .. well ..  never mind. What were these guys all about anyways? It's awful.

Sparks never had a huge following, and today most of their fans are in the UK, but Sparks has been a continuously operating band, recording and releasing new music, since 1970.  Here's their discography:

1971 Sparks/Halfnelson Bearsville - -
1972 A Woofer in Tweeter's Clothing Warner Bros. - -
1974 Kimono My House Island
1974 Propaganda Island
1975 Indiscreet Island 
1976 Big Beat Island - -
1977 Introducing Sparks Columbia - -
1979 No. 1 In Heaven Virgin 
1980 Terminal Jive Virgin - -
1981 Whomp That Sucker Why-Fi -
1982 Angst in My Pants Atlantic Records -
1983 In Outer Space Atlantic Records -
1984 Pulling Rabbits Out of a Hat Atlantic Records - -
1986 Music That You Can Dance To Curb - -
1988 Interior Design Underdog - -
1994 Gratuitous Sax & Senseless Violins Logic - -
1998 Plagiarism Roadrunner - -
2000 Balls Recognition - -
2002 Lil' Beethoven Artful - -
2006 Hello Young Lovers Gut Records

This is from their 2006 release:



Admittedly, they are an acquired taste, but I've been a fan since the early 70's. 

Also, while they haven't ever had a huge fan following, they are often cited as influences by other musicians.  I know Queen started at about the same time, but their sound changed quite a bit after hearing Sparks, and without Sparks, there might have never been Queen, quite as they turned out at least.

Hey Bob, Its Martini time  ;D I love almost all rock. Hard Rock, Thrash, Soft Rock, Heavy Metal, Hair rock. Punk Rock 50's 60's Rock and of course Rockabilly. Terry and I have talked about our Rock days. There wasn't a band from 1977 to 1990 I hadn't seen. Well there were two. Paul Marctney and this one Kills Me, Queen. I have no idea how I missed them. The last time I saw Kiss was on there first Farewell tour ::)
With Uncle  Ted. Stanley voice was still great and Ace's guitar playing was on as usual. The last show I saw was The Who. It was a great show. The one before that was Wolfmother and they were Amazing. The next show in line is Dick Dale. My Favorite Band of all time is Cheap Trick. To many shows of their's to talk about. I also met them. My claim to fame was Meeting and sitting next too Jimmy Page on a plane. Yes I snuck into first class when his wife went to the bathroom. I told him he was the greatest Guitarist and he was very nice. He signed a paper I gave him. I then went back to my seat. I was getting off the plane, when I felt a tug on my shirt. He said, thanks for your support Mate. What nice guy. Ahh to be in my youte again.  ;D The rocking HHW

OK then -- I'll give this a try.  Through the '70s I was listening to the punk and "new wave" bands (Elvis Costello, Squeeze, Nick Lowe, Ramones, Talking Heads) -- but these days would more likely be listening to the aforementioned Rev. Horton Heat -- though I do love Dick Dale as well!  Still -- HERE is my favorite current band -- for your edification, amusement and inspiration -- Heaven and Hell all wrapped up in one Southern Gothic, psychobilly punk package -- Col' J.D. Wilkes' Th' Legendary Shack Shakers:


Don't be scared -- give 'em a try.  Then be scared.

I'd have paid to see John Saxon singing rock songs! (Some years ago, someone did a Freddy Krueger album. John Saxon could have sung songs from that!)

Well, the big Zeppelin reunion concert was today. Wonder how it went? I wonder if segments will show up on YouTube soon? I also wonder if Robert Plant can still hit any of the high notes? One thing is for certain, they gave no quarter.

Say, speaking of 70s, what about ELO? 

or Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen?

I saw Commander Cody at a club in Seattle in the mid-90's.  His Rhodes piano was messed up and they wheeled a baby grand in from the back.  He said he hadn't played one of those in a while, but was warmed up on it by the 4th or 5th song and then started really getting into the show.  They flat tore it up for almost 3 hours and rocked down the house.  That club, by the way, had been going under different managements since the 60's, and before he went to San Francisco and broke out, Jimi Hendrix played there some.
