Trivia Question What was the name of John Kays band that had most of the Steppenwolf members before they formed Steppenwolf?
For Steppenwolf fans

When I was 14 and a real PITA at home we were all sitting around the living room after dinner – I was there by paternal executive order. They were watching tv and I was listening to my records with earphones on and speakers off. Steppenwolf, “The Pusher” was playing and without knowing it, I was singing the lyrics aloud. That is, until I saw everyone staring at me…

Hey, I'll have you know that the Allman Bros are still an incredibly kick-ass band. Possibly better than in "the day". Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks are two of the greatest guitar players extant, and they each also have their own band too. As a matter of fact, I'm going to see the Tedeschi/Trucks Band this Saturday. It may be better to burn out than to fade away, but it's even better to keep on trucking.

I was really fortunate back in the day to have a job seating people at concerts in Albuquerque in the late 60's, early 70's. This was when people used to actually sit in their assigned seats. When the concert started, the ushers got to sit in the second row for free. I saw so many great bands that it's hard to choose.

1. Beatles ( never saw them.)
2. The Who ( Wow, they were great!)
3. Cream
4. Jimi Hendrix - so different and amazing
5. Led Zepplin - I saw them as they were first becoming famous - they were opening for the Turtles - and they blew everyone away.

Others I saw who were really great: Janis Joplin, Simon and Garfunkel, Three Dog Night, Chicago (but they were way too loud! my ears hurt for days,) Elton John, Creedance Clearwater, Leon Russell, Cat Stevens, James Taylor, and lots more. It was a pretty amazing time.

Good list. DH and I have been to many concerts including a number of bands mentioned in this thread. The best by far was the Talking Heads back in the Remain in Light days. Amazing concert in every way - musically and visually. The crowd was dancing and partying the whole time.

the talking heads concert film "stop making sense" is available on netflix now.

Netflix - Unlimited TV Shows & Movies Online

I was at show #1 of the filming (i think they shot at 3 shows) at the pantages theatre in L.A. One of my favorite shows ever..

I'm detecting a regional bias here. Except for that last band. New York City!?!?! How did they get in there?

I like almost every band listed so far. The first time i saw The Who was in 1966 or 1967 they were in Fargo and were the opening band for Herman's Hermits, practically everyone left after The Who were done.

Wow!!!! Lucky you! I would have loved to have seen anyone of them.

Did you by chance read the book by Chuck Negron (SP?) of Three Dog Night? It was a pretty incredible story of his drug addiction.

No I haven't read it. I thought they put on a great show and I was surprised when I heard of his problems later. He seemed very alert and on his game in concert.

I was not surprised on the other hand when both Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin died shortly after I saw them. They were both drinking straight out of the bottle on stage and both got progressively more slurred and even drunk by the end of the night. They were so good, but no one else I saw behaved that way on stage. They both seemed almost desperate. A little like some of the footage from of Amy Winehouse's concerts under the influence.
