    Thank you and kudos for that... Alvin Lee, and his band were underrated very
    much. So was Mott. I saw them both live in their prime, 1973, and both
    shows were unforgettable. TYA rocked a full house of 10K down to their
    sneakers, and Mott the Hoople headlined a show opened by Aerosmith
    and the New York Dolls. Ian and the gang rocked that town, hot'lanta.
    It was Hallows Eve wknd and we raided the costume closet at the theatre
    department at school on Hallows Eve weekend and headed to the show.
    Ian was playing a clear see-through guitar shaped like an H and the boys
    were in all their high-heeled finery. It was splendid, fun times indeed.

    Wait a minute... I've tried covering this thread back a cupla years, mebe I missed it.
    But what about Be Bop Deluxe w/ incendiary guitar ace Bill Nelson? Axe Victim,
    Sunburst Finish and Modern Music were classics. Drastic Plastic was a master too.
    Listened to a lot of that stuff in the late 70's...

    Has anyone ever heard of Stray? Great band from the 70's that I have only recently discovered.

    Genesis. I don't mean the pasty washed-out crap of the eighties. I mean the Gabriel/Hackett days when they had some meat on the bone.
