Who among us used to be one of those long-haired flea-infested dope-smoking denizens of the rock concert world?
Guilty. And recovered.
Post up some old tunes for a Saturday night.
Listen to this 2007 NPR story about Fats’ reappearance after Katrina.
Rock ‘n’ roll legend Fats Domino was on stage last Saturday for the first time since Hurricane Katrina hit his hometown of New Orleans. The 79-year-old sat at a piano to play a medley of his hits at Tipitina’s nightclub.
New Orleans Times-Picayune music writer Keith Spera talks with John Ysdstie about the performer’s stage fright, and his successful Tipitina’s show.
Old hippies: you know we were 'there' because we can't remember...
(Gary Wright was in Spooky Tooth on this album people bought for the cover, played a few tracks and then put on an Allman Brothers album- or maybe some King Crimson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-PfnJb24tw)

King Crimson - Red
Van Morrison, Dr John, Santana & Etta James Moondance
Me, me, me!
Used to WALK from the Fillmore West to Union Square in the middle of the night in SF....totally stupid but what a gas!
Wasn’t one of P, P and M a convicted child molester?
Saw the Dead 30 plus time have a few hundred concerts, always a joy to hear. a couple of others:
Mike Bloomfield & Al Kooper:
Alvin Lee just passed away a couple of weeks ago after a surgical procedure:
Stevie Winwood & Clapton 2007 (wonderful) rendition of Blind Faith song from 69:
And Bo Diddly as done by Quicksilver Messenger Service:
Meh, the drummer just phoning it in...
Try Keith Moon of The Who....
Got this on my iPod...
I play it whenever Obozo’s on the tube....
About the same time. A bit of jazziness mixed with classic Ozzy and Iommi's guitar innovation.
AWEsome tune. Lark’s Tongues in Aspic is STILL ahead of its time.
