Watched them win the last 'Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour'. They sure beat the hell out of the Acrobatic Dog actWith the amusingly awkward Mike Douglas intro as a bonus ! Bill Lordan went on to play with Robin Trower in the late 70's.
This is story telling of the highest order. Steve Fromholz, 1945-2014.
Good but not very funky, kinda hard to dance to....I guess it's what you call "Texas Funk"...
I'll allow it in my thread... In the spirit of diversity and inclusion.Oh, hell...I thought it was about clearing my head. Nevermind.
Aw man! The 100 proof uncut after hours FUNK. "Make my funk the P-Funk..." Strong stuff for this white boy! :grin:You ain't even close to FUNK...till ya get down with the "GRAND FUNK MASTER" George Clinton & the Funkedelics!
I wasn't watch'n from the outside.....I was in it to win it. 'Tear the roof off'..... "Flashlight" or pick any of their hits.
Here's the real history of FUNK if interested in going down the road....
I have seen it, and it is amazing what they accomplished. Great band. I am a bassist, and it makes me want to get some flat wounds, a p bass, and bust out some Motown.Great documentary:
Standing in the Shadows of Motown
By the end of their phenomenal run, this unheralded group of musicians plays on more Number One hits that the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley and The Beetles combined, making them the hit machine in the history of popular music. They call themselves The Funk Brothers. But no one knows their names... this is their story.
Part of that documentary:
Eh, not so much. Dude had issues.This one's a scream
As a fan of Ray Wylie Hubbard, you should check out "Screw You. We're from Texas".I'll allow it in my thread... In the spirit of diversity and inclusion.
I was always kinda partial to these ol' boys:
Seems like I've heard that one before. :wink: Ray Wiley today looks like he's been rode hard and put away wet. [video=youtube;hqBAyWkrH5U]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqBAyWkrH5U[/video]As a fan of Ray Wylie Hubbard, you should check out "Screw You. We're from Texas".
