    I saw them in 79 or 80.
    I went on a blind double date (sounds ultra corny, no?) to see them at the Frank Irwin Center.
    They were shockingly good!
    I have never been much of an art/prog rock fan, except for Wishbone Ash.

    I was (and still like some) an "art/prog rock" fan(atic).....Genesis, King Crimson, Gentle Giant, McDonald and Giles, ELP, you name it! Gentle Giant and Genesis were at the top of the list.

    John Frusciante. He was so good at filling in that the Chili Peppers asked him back a second time!

    Peart is the first thing that came to my mind. Rutsey was fine, but really didn't add anything to the band and Peart's arrival marked a huge turn in the way they approached the tunes. No Peart = no Rush.

    If you like Gaines, you should check out One in The Sun, if you've not heard any of it before. Was released by his family posthumously and is so freaking good.

    Phil also played on the Counterpoints album for Argent, once they made the turn into prog rock. An overlooked album because Argent was no longer interested in writing singles, but it was real good.

    you've piqued my curiosity. I'll ahve to check that out. Anytime someone isn't interested in singles, cool things can happen.

    It's a very cool album. Russ Ballard had left the band before the previous album (Circus, also an excellent record), and they got a guitarist named John Grimaldi to replace him. And for the recording of Counterpoints, they brought on another guitarist named John Verity.

    Bob Henrit fell ill during sessions for the album, at which point Phil stepped in.

    I went looking on Youtube for the opening track ('On My Feet Again'), and found it! If you go and search for 'Argent Counterpoints,' you'll get a playlist with the full album.

    Nils is once again taking up the reins of second guitar in Crazy Horse. Frank “Poncho” Sampedro is happy being retired from the music business. Neil Young & Crazy Horse are in the studio working on a new album.

    Scot Halpin sat in with the Who

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scot_Halpin

    Moon passed out completely, slumping onto his drums. He was carried off—this time not to return. Guitarist Pete Townshend later said in an interview that Moon had consumed large tranquilizer pills, meant to be consumed by animals, with a large volume of brandy.
    The remaining three band members then played a short jam, before going into "See Me, Feel Me", without drums, with vocalist Roger Daltrey adding a tambourine for percussion. The song received a huge response, and Pete Townshend thanked the crowd for putting up with a three-quarter-strength band, saying "I think it should be us applauding you". Instead of leaving the stage, though, Townshend asked the crowd, "Can anybody play the drums?" He repeated the question, adding forcefully, "I mean somebody good!"



    Keith leaves the stage 1:13:40 ... and then passes out 1:29:48.
    Pete calls some one to play the drums 1:37:44.

    WOW! That's exciting. I've saw Neil with Crazy Horse about 5 or 6 years ago (with Patti Smith opening) and a couple times since with Promise of the Real. I think he's one of the few remaining rock "icons" of his generation that still carries the same passion as he did 50 years ago. Thanks for the tip on the new album. Glad to hear that Nils is involved again. I'll be looking for its release.

    By the way, I like your Steal Your Indian Face avatar

    That's absolutely classic. I saw Robert Randolph pluck a kid out of the audience to play guitar on stage for a few numbers. Buddy Guy too. But the Scot Halpin / Who story is the best.

    As in the previous thread, Queen should have replaced Mr Mercury permanently with George Michael. It would have benefited both and, with GM’s song writing talents, both would, IMHO, moved forward musicaly.

    I thought Ian Gillan did pretty good with Black Sabbath on "Zero the Hero", but that could have just as easily been an Ozzy song, so... yeah.
    I have to mostly agree with you on David Gilmour, though Syd did give us "Astronomy Domine" and "Interstellar Overdrive". Let's not talk about "Effervescing Elephant" though.
    I didn't get too far into Hawkwind, so I can't speak to Lemmy's contributions there, but I'm kinda glad they kicked him out so he could form Motorhead. :cool:

    Has anyone mentioned Rod Stewart and Ron Wood joining The Small Faces? That was a pretty good substitution.

    I imagine Pat Smear has been that guy more times than most.

    I still like Chuck's albums better than Mike's, even though Mike is a heck of a singer. I thought his style worked better in Mr. Bungle.
