Probably the loudest band ever- there was a story from the Late 60's early 70's that when BLUE CHEER played the Kenetic Playground in Chicago (the REAL one @ 4810 N. Clark St) they pulled so much power and created such huge SP levels through the 10 'daisy-chained' Marshall 100 watt amps (were they 200 watters?) that they (allegedly) damaged the wiring and the walls so that after on of the next shows there ( the Dead?) the place burned down. Any Kinetic historians out there?
