    Didn't want to "currently" offend anyone with the title of song.

    Agree old ZZ & Rush are preferred listening vs. newer stuff.
    Always liked this never played on the radio early song by "off thread" mention of a Canadian band from roughly same time frame as above ZZ song.

    This was a pretty good show, first time seeing AC/DC with the "new" singer.

    There was a Kustom re-release or whatever a while back but I don't think they stuck around long. But yeah there were quite a few out there once upon a time.

    I'm too young to have been at most of the cool shows.... I would have loved to see Humble Pie, and AC/DC of that period. Sammy and ZZ certainly would have rocked too, I just don't know much besides their couple of hits.

    Me too! After posting that I got to thinking, didn't remember them being there! Sure enough, after looking around a bit they didn't show up. AC/DC was unimpressive, to me anyway. When I first saw them a couple of years earlier every song was played about 1/2 way through, then Angus Young would do a five minute solo,then they'd finish the song, same with that show. If it wasn't for "Cheap Sunglasses" being a hit for ZZ Top at the time I doubt they would have headlined. Sammy Hagar rocked, probably half his show was stuff he did with Montrose, he was later sued and had to drop that from his act.

    Not ALL conspiracy theories are false. If it's on the radio, TV AND the internet (with pictures) then it's true. If it shows up in print, it always will be. www.birdsarentreal.com

    In the mid '70's a friend tried to get me to go to a Humble Pie show. "There'll be tons of girls there to see the lead guitarist." I opted out.

    I saw Sammy in Ft Worth TX shortly after Montrose broke up, he was the warmup act for Boston. I bought too many tickets for that one, there was one left over. I gave the extra ticket to a girl trying to buy one from a scalper. Those were the days. They threw out dozens of beach balls into the audience while we were waiting. Some AZZhole got a 6 volt lantern battery and that flew across the audience a few times, it always landed with a scream. We were on high alert watching for it. Finally someone who wasn't an idiot got a hold of it and the screams stopped. Big old Mallory copper top square battery, some people. The beach ball thing was cool.
