Ok, trivia time. Strawberry Alarm Clock guitarist on the left in the video (Ed King), wearing the gold suit, playing the red Gibson SG, left the Clock and became the bass player for what band?
Didn't he also have a custom guitar shop? Or am I thinking about someone else?Ok, trivia time. Strawberry Alarm Clock guitarist on the left in the video (Ed King), wearing the gold suit, playing the red Gibson SG, left the Clock and became the bass player for what band?
Lynyrd Skynyrd. Skynyrd's bass player, Leon Wilkenson, quit right after the band got their record deal. The Clock and Skynyrd had toured together and Ed King liked them and told them he would love to play with them. So, when Leon quit Skynryd hired Ed to play bass and he does on the first album. Leon came back to the band, Ed moved back to guitar and that's when Skynryd put up the famous 3 guitar line up. Ed wrote a lot for them and he actually came up with the intro for Sweet Home Alabama.
I always liked the Nashville Teens version. Probably less psychedelic, but now it's Sunday anyway. 😄Ahh, the psychedelic periods; fond memories.....
1966, one of the (if not the first) album titles to reference "psychedelic", The Blues Magoos Psychedelic Lollipop.
Tobacco Road, studio version:
LOL, the "psychedelic period" started when I was around 12 years old. I wasn't that much of a rebel. And I was too broke to rebel very much anyway, with the exception of collecting, with some help from my friends, 749 (yeah, I counted them) Schlitz beer cans and stacking them up against one wall in my apartment. I didn't own a camera then (or much of anything else), so you'll have to take my word for it...... Then they changed the cans from steel to aluminum sometime in the mid 70s and the dimensions changed just enough to make further additions to the wall impossible as the different size cans would no longer stack with each other. Thought about starting another wall, but about that time I switched to whatever was on sale and I couldn't bring myself to try to integrate all that together. But, other than that, I pretty much avoided all the other extracuricular ingestion of recreational foreign substances.@AlanRides , if you have any memories, fond or otherwise from the psychedelic period, I'm pretty sure you did it wrong...
