    How about this fine artist that was mostly unknown in the majority of the world apart from south Africa!
    Enter:
    Rodriguez!
    Absolutely fantastic poetic music from Detroit!

    My first rock concert was an Edgar Winter Group (with Rick Derringer!) show. I was 15. We had just moved to New Orleans for a year and I knew no one. My dad drove me to the show. A bunch of older longhairs shared with me. Although I had been sharing joints with kids at school in Denver for the previous 3 years, I had never really been that high. This time I thought I could feel the blood coursing through my veins, heart a-pounding away. The music was so loud, kids getting high in front of cops who ignored them. It felt like anarchy!

    Afterwards I bought some candy for the weed smell. My dad picked me up and upon smelling the candy said something about good I was able to get something to drink. In my paranoid state I thought he meant alcohol and denied drinking a little too emphatically. My dad just looked at me, shook his head, and we drove home in silence.

    Well MC-5 sure brings back a lot of memories for me. I had just returned from Vietnam in the summer of 1969 and just been "Honorably Discharged" from the USMC. Note: Smoked my first joint in Vietnam and it was just killer, nothing even came close till I moved to California(From Northern Illinos) and started getting great strains of "Sensamia". Oh yeah, we never got high while out in the "Boonies"(Jungle/Mts.) on an operation or patrol, only in safe rear areas where we were allowed to drink beer or whiskey, but these were rare times.

    Anyway back to the MC-5. I was waiting for my discharge at the Naval Hospital in Millington, Tennessee and heard these guys play on the radio. When I got to my parents house in June of 1969 I bought their album with the live picture shot. When the album was first released it had the "Kick out the jams motherfuckers" on it. After a few months moms and pops protested and so the record company re-released the album and now it was "Kick out the jams brothers and sisters". It was several years and maybe more before the song was released with the original words back in. I was so happy, think I got my CD back in the early 80s at "Tower Records" in Mountain View, California.

    I was 13 yrs old when the Beatles stormed America, loved them and the Rolling Stones. Five years later I was with the USMC and a "Grunt" in a "Foxhole" south of DaNang at a place we called "Arizona Territory". Never heard much music over their but on that day I heard a song coming from another foxhole a few yards away, I knew straight away it was the Beatles, but I never heard the song before, the song was "Hey Jude".

    Well I just want to mention one of my most favorite groups of the 60s and 70s, the group "HAWKWIND" from England. They invented "Space-Rock" and you only heard them on FM or some college radio station. They have tons of albums out there but their best ones are "Space Ritual" Live, "Hall Of The Mountain Grill", and "Warrior At The Edge Of Time". Synths and great guitars to the max. So for all you youngin's out there who have not heard them and you wanna have a nice "Vaping Space Trip" give 'me a listen. Sayonara.

    but if I hear Pat Benetar shrieking over the gym speakers for me to hit her again I might......

    When I was a young rocker I loved this aggressive little Foghat ditty . Love Lonesome Dave singing along with his solo at the end.

    This song reminds me of nights listening to the Dr. Demento show.
    I would loook forward to listening to The ballad of Irving, Fish Heads, Dead Puppies, Junk food Junkie and whatever Weird Al Yankovich's latest hit was.

    I loved Dr. Demento in my earlier years; The 1970's were very good to me. One of my favorites was "Existential Blues" by Tom T-bone Stankus.

    "I don't even have a dog named Toto..."

    Good times. Thanks for the flashback.

    i'm working my way through this thread from the beginning and haven't finished so these may be repeats. i look at the videos and am struck by how young they all look. but then i remember that i was in high school and college when i saw most of them. they totally changed music. sometimes someone posts a thread asking whether we like the beatles or stones etc or one of the newer muscians. i'm not sure those who grew up when these were classics instead of new realize that the newer musician would not exist if not for these older ones. anyway, already posted one of my favorite albums- derek and the dominoes.

    Another favorite; I saw him perform live. It was mostly trashed when it came out but that was probably because he crossed genres like Dylan did when he brought his electric guitar out at newport.

    Doors had some serious musical (and lyrical) depth. Everything they did felt a little more sophisticated but also raw in that under-produced psychedelic rock mood. Lots of complexity and styles under the hood.
