    Saw them at the Los Angeles Forum, while in high school when they were big. Some unheard of band called Black Sabbath opened for them. Sabbath stole the show.

    I saw them a couple of times. The first 3 lp's were the best, although they were very similar. I think they were under pressure to put out product really quickly as everything sounded kind of similar. I liked Sin's a Good Man's Brother.

    When I think of "Garage Rock" I always think of early trio Grand Funk Railroad. Those first 4 albums were just so basic, and for me, fun. First album my brother bought was the Red album. I still remember every note.

    I loved em' in junior high!
    I loved em' so much, I traded my All Things Must Pass box set for the Closer To Home album.
    Doh!
    Anyways, Mark was a good singer, and they made a good noise.

    I was just playing the red album the other day.
    And I mean the album, the old original vinyl.

    So many great guitar riffs and guitar tones from a completely crap guitar!

    Those three guys captured lightning in a bottle for just a few years.
    And their manager kept them in the poor house while lining his own pockets with gold.

    Now he's dead, and Mark, Don, and Mel are still alive.

    I wish they could bury the hatchet, and get together again.
    Good playing, good singing.

    :(
