    Glad you enjoyed the show but I just can't get into the band with Dave Hlubek being the only original member in the band

    I've seen them a bunch of times. First time opening for Triumph in 1985. Then in Germany around 1990. Last time was during Bike Week here in Myrtle Beach a few years ago and they were an hour late going on stage. But that's neither here nor there. They are one of the best Southern rock bands period. I read an interview with Ed King who said southern rock died the day Molly Hatchet came out. What a load of crap. I'll put Molly Hatchet's first two albums agaainst any Skynyrd album. I can't stand Skynyrd these days. And Rick Medlocke should go back to Blackfoot!

    Here's a couple of my faves from the early days:

    ^^Not sure I even know who Ed King is but I agree Molly Hatchet's first few albums were very good. Sox just saw them recently I think, seems like everyone who ever put out a record stops in his neighborhood to play and share a pint.:D

    Ed King is a guitarist and was in Strawberry Alarm Clock and Lynyrd Skynyrd. He joined the band as the bass player when Leon Wilkeson left but switched to guitar when Wilkeson rejoined the band. He co-wrote Sweet Home Alabam,Saturday Night Special,Workin' For MCA,Swamp Music and a few others.He left the band in 1975 and was replaced by Steve Gaines.

    He rejoined the band in 1987 and left again to due congestive heart failure in 1996 .I read that he left with the understanding he could return when he was healthy but that never happened.
