yeah, Jimmy mac was 16 when he played lead on that, then he went to Wings. The drummer aynsly Dunbar went to F Zappa & Mothers. played on "Just another band from LA" saw it live at UCLA in 71' great rebellious, bizarro music. John Kay still tours he sounds OK. guess he never really indulged in what he sang about. ahh! the fringes of rock & roll what danger, excitment, provoking never a dull moment, at least then.
For some reason I thought Speedy Keene was the drummer. Didn't Aynsley dunbar also play with Flo & Eddie? Dug those guys, they also played with Zappa, of course. I think Mr Dunbar also played with Journey. When they were huge and really really awful.

Speaking of Kay, somehow I saw the Wolf twice when I was in high school in Nebraska.

You have great taste in bad music. Except Almost Cut My Hair. That was the only song that was easy enough for me to play along while my son learned to be a guitar god. We'd jam to that sucker for hours at volume set on eleven. Sometimes butchered it in ways that sounded real good.

LOL! This lady had issues. That song blew big time. I like your dog picture in your profile. Cute pup.

Not trying to be funny, but how in the heel, Did you manage to hear songs like, "GawdDm the pusher man" and such, in that time in that place. Or maybe Nebraska isn't at all like we thought.
BTW, that Zappa LP i mentioned has all those guys in the group. including J pons bass player & flo/ eddie all former turtles.

LPA: Radio Free Omaha, their studio was on the top floor of a motel that looked like a spaceship. At least it did to me. They turned me onto Tim Buckley, Spider John Koerner & Willie Murphy, Edgar Broughton Band and a host of others. They saved my teenage soul. In a manner of speaking.

Amen!
All the great Randy Newman songs out there and THAT piece of crap becomes his big hit.
Ever hear Nina Simone sing Baltimore?

I haven't heard Nina Simone do it. I love that song though. As well as everything on Good Old Boys and most of Little Criminals. I've seen Etta James do You Can Keep Your Hat On and Let's Burn Down the Cornfield. Very nice.

I caught a couple minutes of The Family Guy last night and they had a pretty funny parody of Randy.

Would still rather be forced to listen to them continously for hours than have to listen to (c)rap for even 10 minutes.

Maybe it's that line in the joker:"Some people call me the space cowboy./ Yeah! Some call me the gangster of love./ Some people call me Maurice,/ Cause I speak of the Pompatus of love."
"Pompatus" mystified millions. "Space cowboy" and "gangster of love" referred to earlier Miller songs. Maurice was from Miller's 1972 tune "Enter Maurice," which appeared on the album Recall the Beginning ... A Journey From Eden. "Enter Maurice" had this lyric: "My dearest darling, come closer to Maurice so I can whisper sweet words of epismetology in your ear and speak to you of the pompitous of love."
Great, now there were two mystery words. What's more, it appeared even Miller himself was uncertain how pompatus was spelled. It appeared as "pompatus" in at least two books of sheet music but as "pompitous" in the lyrics included with "Recall the Beginning."
Miller has said little about the P-word over the years. In at least one interview, fans say, he claimed "it doesn't mean anything--it's just jive talk."
Not quite.
Some sharp-eared music fan noticed the "Enter Maurice" lyric above bore a marked resemblance to some lines in a rhythm and blues tune called "The Letter" by the Medallions. The song had been a hit in R & B circles in 1954. J.K. found the record. It had the lines, "Oh my darling, let me whisper sweet words of [something like epismetology] and discuss the [something like pompatus] of love." J.K. tried to find the sheet music for the song, but came up only with the Box Tops hit ("My baby, she wrote me a letter").
Steve Miller must have loved R & B. Another line from "The Joker" goes "I really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree./ Lovey dovey, lovey dovey, lovey dovey all the time." A similar line may be found in the Clovers' 1953 hit "Lovey Dovey": "I really love your peaches wanna shake your tree / Lovey dovey, lovey dovey all the time."
When I saw Steve Miller, everyone sang all the lyrics to the song.
Thanks for the trivia. When I was younger I use to looooovvvveeeee "Space Cowboy" and "The Joker". I thought the Steve Miller Band was sooo cool. Loved the Doobie Brothers and AWB also.

What destroyed rap was the ban on sampling.Otr making it so expensive to sample that most rappers went with their own vastly inferior beats and the whole genre went to hell.
I liked much of the old school rap because it used many of the old R and B classics and had rhymes put with them that were often very creative.
Now its all this hyphy and crunk nonsense and lyrically its the same old"bitches,blunts and bling"crap.
Too bad such a potentially creative art form went down the drain.
