    Their initial run from 1986 to 1994 was phenomenal. I definitely would have liked to have seen them get a little more respect here in the U.S., but have to admit that they did get some.

    A good friend of mine and I walked into MAE Music in Ft. Lauderdale about 10-15 years ago. There's this guy trying out a guitar and shredding away. What do you know...it is Keith Partridge!

    You're dead accurate. The man could play.

    Men without Hats----the video of "Safety Dance" always brightens up my day---don't know why, but it's a real mood changer for me.

    Is this band underrated? I don't know because I've always liked them, so I've rated them highly, but--

    Hey a telecaster!

    Keeping it confined to "known" bands, it's no doubt The Troggs.
