I saw Three Dog Night tonight and they were AWESOME. Those old timers can still rock. I just wish they did Eli. They did not.

DAMN IT PEOPLE! We had some damn good music in the 70’s.
We had people who could sing and play their own instruments.
Bands like, CCR, Stepinwolf, Doobie Brothers, Rare Earth, War,Etc...
Today... People with no talent...Freakin’ rappers....

Yep.

And tickets were under 10 bucks,,

But now we can see bands like the Moody Blues at very small venues, : )

3DN was the first concert I ever went to (circa 71 or 72) in Denver.


At Red Rocks.

When I saw them it was in a closed stadium in Denver. Don’t remember the name of the place, but it wasn’t Red Rocks.

Great thread! While I’ve never seen Three Dog Night in concert, many have told me (back in the 70s) they really put on a good show.

Coincidentally, I was just listening to CCR, the Doobie Bros, Rare Earth ...and Three Dog Night in the car this morning on the way home from work.

Was it actually 3 Dog NIght or just one of the band members? Chuck Negron is touring with Blood Sweat and Tears and will appear in Peachtree City, GA this Summer. Are you sure it wasn’t them you saw? Just asking.

Not in anyway similar to Three Dog Night or the others (although I never cared for the Doobie Brothers), RUSH is coming out with a new album this spring, had a very successful tour last summer (no casinos!), and some say they are better than ever. (In some respects that may be true).

The man that wrote Never been to Spain and Joy to the world was a good singer/song writter himself. Hoyt Axton. I liked Della and the dealer and several others he wrote and sang.

Thanks for mentioning Hoyt Axton! He is one of my favorite song writers along with Townes Van Zandt and a bunch of others. Here is Hoyt Axton singing Poncho and Lefty, written by Van Zandt.

I have seen 3 Dog Night in concert 3 times. The first time was in 1970 at the University of Alabama and the last time was about 4 years ago. Yeah, they can still do it. Awesome group.

Believe it or not, that very song is on the mp3 playlist I was listening to earlier this AM. "Sure As I'm Sitting Here" is by Three Dog Night

Here's a screen cap of the list:

I saw them in 1971 on a bill with Rod Stewart and Steppenwolf. As far as high notes go, I recently saw The Zombies...their lead singer came right out and hit the high notes on “I Love You.” It was a beautiful thing!

Today... People with no talent...Freakin’ rappers....

It's not just Rap. Just about all the music of the past 20 or so years is horrible. But, I agree, Rap is by far the worst of it. Even the TV shows and cartoons are awful today.

Was that Colin Blunstone? He did some vocals for the Alan Parsons Project, that are some of my favorite songs by them ("The Eagle Will Rise Again", "Old and Wise")
