    Re: Pat Travers Band

    I saw him at a show they recorded for DVD at House of Blues with Carmine Appice.


    I love the intro from Go For What You Know:

    'Ello music lovers. From the streets of Toronto to the streets of London. Now here to KICK YOUR ASS - THE PAT TRAVERS BAND!!!
    Then they break into Hooked On Music. Pat Thrall is a monster lead player throughout that album.

    'Mars' Cowling was a mainstay with Pat Travers for a long time, and I was very glad to have seen the two together on the 'Radioactive' tour. :grinthumb
    I definitely agree with what you said, LG! Although some people might not be aware of the large amount of fantastic bass guitar playing of 'Mars' Cowling, as well as other PT material from both 'Crash And Burn' and his other albums, with 'Snortin' Whiskey' receiving almost all of the airplay. There are other terrific songs on each PT album, imo. 'Material Eyes' was one of my favorite tracks that I've enjoyed when I first heard it, and continue to, too! :cheers2

    March 2010 release. This album has the 'vintage' 70's Travers blues sound.


    Here is some live snippets from the album, great stuff!

    Found this SICK video of Boom Boom Out Go The Lights from back in 1993...this was close to the time that my band had opened for him...except our gig was at a place called Interactions and not in NC.

    This is a cool ass video!!

    I would consider myself a casual Pat Travers listener, which you could translate into OK. I do like the "Crash and Burn" album.....his best, IMHO.

    Big PT fan here also. Bumping this to mention a couple of albums he did With Carmine Appice. Both were really solid IMO. This is a track from the Bazooka album that I love... a re-working of the Cactus cover of Howlin' Wolf's "Evil", penned by Willie Dixon.
