Listened to this top to bottom last night. It’s a goddamn beautiful record. This band had such a groove, and Bon Scott had such a great voice.
Got us a damn fine band together to do a proper Tom Petty tribute show Feb. 9 @johnnybrendas. Members of Son Little, Dr. Dog, Purples, American Babies, CYHSY and me on drums! 3 sets at 9, 10 and 11. Hits, deep cuts and plenty off Echo. Tix here:
It just dawned on me that I’ve probably “borrowed” Ringo’s snare fill from the top of “I Am the Walrus” at least once in every band I’ve ever played with.
