Trying to remember local bands of the era. Of course Ed Wool and Kiss were the hot rockers. Country bands were Fred Angel The Mustangs and George Walters. Old timers help me out here.

I remember fresh from the 70s, Jim hood was phenomenal, rick lagray on base, larry goodwin on lead, and tim fauville on drums, these guys could rock and had incredible talent. i was a rodie with them for a couple of years and their talent was remarkable. Jim is very much missed.

Yes, they were the best rockin' band around. I saw them several times in the Massena area. So much wonderful talent! Was so sad to hear of Jim Hoods passing. Larry was one great guitarist. He has a band in Watertown now FFOG........They are terrific!

The Crossroads in Turin, N.Y. had some of the best local musicians around. If you
didn't grow up in the 60's, you surely missed a lot! Great times, exceptional tunes!
