Now that brings back so very old memories. I saw Elvin several times during the 70's and his group were excellent. Betts & Mickey weren't with him--I'm assuming this was a special deal where various artist were there to join in between their own sets. In any event--Betts goes without saying....one of the best guitarists ever. Mickey Thomas may be one of, if not THE more often overlooked and under-appreciated vocalists ever. His voice was unequalled when it came to hitting some notes with no wavering at all. He made Starship what it was much more than Grace Slick IMO--Jefferson Airplane is a different story altogether. She just happened to have longevity--talent too, but she was playing concerts with Adam & Eve in attendance--she had been around that long.

One more here of Elvin that was a signature piece back in the day. Sad that the technology was what it was back then....but, it's all we had.

This band is big in the UK. Coming to Sanford Dec. 14


The opening 3 chords in that sounded sooooo similar to a couple of tunes from the 60's. I mean eerily similar--only problem is I can put my finger on which ones by names.

R.I.P. Fingers Taylor, original Coral Reefer Band. His harp went together with Jimmy Buffett's music like rum goes together with coke.

I learned a thing today. A friend wrote on facebook a story of Gregg Allman. I didn't believe it at first. I met Gregg a few times and have friends who knew him well in Daytona but I never heard this story. It was well before my time. I found a video of it. Its quite the story as he tells it.
