I have been going back and listening to alot of old music man great songs The Animals, "Please don't let me be misunderstood" Great song Them for me it was "Gloria" one of the first songs my first garage band ever played and played and played getting the lyrics from a 45rpm lifting the needle a million times just to get the words... Argent " Time of the season" one of the first long songs...The searchers "Needles and pins" that beat hooked me on drumming i played to that song for hours.. Blue Cheer OMG the first time i was blown over by pure Volume... summertime blues cover still rocks..Love a little know band today but what a before their time band " My Flash on You" great rock song and my old band recorded a cover of it in 1966 or 67.. lol anyone remember these bands?

Most definitely remember. Although mainly because of my older brothers had those 45's. Time of the Season was the Zombies. I don't remember the band Love though.

I saw Argent (Rod's solo band) open for Frank Zappa.

Hold Your Head Up

Kathy Dalton was the first act that night.

Zappa was unreal, we had fifth row seats, my buddy & I spent intermissions in the cheap seats smoking, then went to our seats with his dad.

I think his dad was smoking while we were gone.

We would have wipeout riots in grade school. Teacher would leave the room, about 10 of us would beat it on our desk tops at the same time.

on one of the Duane era shows, someone yells Wipeout..Butch or Jaimoe starts playing the infamous Wipeout drum solo.

We knew he did, he was a lawyer and used to let his biker clients pay in currency other than cash.

Brittish Invasion days....mid-late '60's, just after the Beatles hit.

We had a "Wolfman Jack"-type radio station in Birmingham that everybody listened to in the daytime, WVOK. (At night it was WLS out of Chicago.)
Anyway, 3 or 4 times a year, WVOK would do these "Shower of Stars" rock and roll shows. 9-10 groups, playing their top hits, then a long set by the headliner. Had just about everybody except the Beatles. The Animals several times, the Beach Boys several times, the Stones, Herman's Hermits several times, the Who, Mamas and Papas, Sam the Sham several times (great show), the Dave Clark 5 as a headliner--even had the Buckinghams, from Chicago. Crowd wouldn't let them off the stage till they sang the Mr. Norm's commercial. Thousands of kids in Birmingham singing along to a commercial for a Dodge dealership in Chicago. The glory days of AM radio.

Said before, worth repeating.....it was a great time to grow up.

That Shower of Stars show with Dave Clark 5 as the headliner was my first concert - I believe it was 1965. That same year the Rolling Stones played at Legion Field (Paint It Black had just been released) with the Beach Boys as the headliner (Help Me Rhonda was their current hit). This marked the first Beach Boys tour without Brian Wilson (he was replaced with then studio musician Glen Campbell).

I was just a wee bit of a kid in the mid 60's, but I remember all of the music that came out. My parents were pretty young when i was born and listened to alot of music, especially my Mom. In 1965 my kindergarten teacher allowed us to bring in music, all of the kids were bringing in kids music. I remember one kid brought in a Mr. Ed album, because I had the same one at home. I brought in 2 of my favorites from home, Meet the Beatles, and a Hermans Hermits album. Needless to say, I've loved music my whole life.

Yes, and I still have most of these 45 rpms (aka "singles) including Blue Cheer's Summertime Blues, Gloria by the Shadows of Knight, and Wooly Bully by Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs. I wish I still had a turntable (I do have a new one) with that thingy that you put on the "spindle" so you could play a stack of singles at once. I have two of those plastic "circles" that you pop into the middle of the 45's but you have to play them one at a time. It takes a lot of energy to get up and down to play one short song at a time but once in awhile, I do (if only to amuse my stepson who is a sponge when it comes to the music of the 60's).

I count myself very lucky to have been the age I was when I was but, yes, I am old!

Music from 1963 to 1973 was the Golden era of ( rock and soul ) Music . After that it was a roll of the dice.

Here is a bit of trivia for some of you Van Morrison's music career started with the Group "Them" and their big hit was of course "Gloria" Every garage band in the universe played Gloria and "Louie Louie"
