This song always reminded me of a US version of whishbone ash.
These guys came out recently.
Needless to say that was a huge and sad story here in the ATL where he was a local legend.
As an Atlanta kid I knew about Bruce but had just gotten into his music when the first HORDE jam band tour came along. It was going to be my first time seeing Bruce live (with the Aquarium Rescue Unit). We showed up early and could hear them playing as we pulled into the parking lot, and ending their set as we walked to the gate. I could tell just from those couple of minutes that they totally killed, but we didn't get to see it.
I'll never forgive HORDE for putting Bruce, the man who most of the modern jam acts are on record calling the father of the jam band genre, on stage in his home town at noon, before total nobodies like Big Head Todd and the Monsters (who were not even really a jam band). He should have been, if not headlining, then at least 4th or 5th out of the six or seven bands.
Luckily I did get to see him in clubs a little after that and it was always an incredible experience.
May I present, Raleigh NC's own The Backsliders? The often leaned a bit more country, but they sure could rock:
Whoo Hoo -- great thread!
Lots of bands I wasn't aware of!!
Keep the links coming, please!!!
Beat me to it.
"Point Blank" from Texas was a "Southern rock" band initially(74-79) but they slid into more mainstream "Rock". They released about 5 or 6 albums so they had some recognition but I believe the only real success was in the 80's in a more commercial rock vein.
There was a band called the Starving Braineaters in the ‘70s in Atlanta, featuring Harold Kelling from Hampton Grease Band. It was on the jazz rock, Dixie Dregs side of things. Their music seems to have been removed from YouTube, but it’s really cool stuff if you can find it.
I only knew about them because I took drum lessons from their fantastic drummer, Tom Rafferty, in the ‘90s.
Saw this Band open for The Kentucky Headhunters in NYC,
I bought the Disc,
Older. And not too far off path
They have NO right to use that name! Copperhead was the late great John Cippolina's band after he left Quicksilver.
Just because they're from the south doesn't make a band southern rock, IMO. A lot of these bands are just plain hard rock. I consider southern rock to be a style like the ABB, Marshall Tucker, Little Feat, and the Radiators, among others. A lot of songs from CCR, the Doobies, and CSNY, in all their different incarnations (especially Stills, like with Manassas) are more southern rock than some of the bands here. Even Skynrd is right on the fence between southern and hard rock on some of their songs.
YES!!! At the Point, seemed like he played there a lot.
By the time I saw them they were too big for the Point and usually played at the Variety Playhouse. They used to have Derek Trucks and Medeski, Martin and Wood open for them.
Blackfoot was pretty big, but pretty much eclipsed by .38 Special, Skynyrd, and the rest.
The "Barefoot Servants" were a cool blues rock/ southern rock sounding band from the late 90s. It was a Jon Butcher collaboration band. It's still one of my favorite hard rock CDs.
