"Drop Your Guns" was a great tune. Not that I want to date you (or myself for that matter) but I had "On Record" on 8 track back in the day, great album. I have good memories of cruising Grand Bend and Sauble Beach in my old TR6 with that album blasting away. :food-smiley-004:

Humble Pie was one of my favourite bands! I loved the albums "Smokin'" and "Rockin' the Fillmore". I was lucky to have saw them in Detroit back in the early 80's.

Saw Humble Pie at our local arena just after Frampton was replaced by Clem Clemson. They essentially recreated the Fillmore album and I was right at the stage. Probably my most memorable concert.

Remember April Wine at my highschool a time or two as well. Were you still with them in 73' Dave?

"Rockin' The Fillmore" was released the year I was born but Humble Pie is one of my favourite bands of all time. Steve Marriott had one of the greatest voices in rock - period, and I love his guitar playing, too. Nasty P90 chunk with groove up the wazoo. Between Steve's grooves and that killer Greg Ridley/Jerry Shirley rhythm section and Peter's jazzy lines they were really unique.

Oh for a time machine - I'd be gone in a flash! :smile:

And David, "Drop Your Guns" is one of my alltime favourite April Wine tracks, especially that funky-ass bass line section with your solo. Was that an SG Special on that one? "Shine On" Makes perfect sense as an inspiration now that you mention it. :smile: It's really cool to have you posting here!

Great stuff!

Led Zeppelin was the band that made me want to play guitar in the first place and I thought everything they did was genius. When I heard the Small Faces' "You Need Love" I came to the realization that "Whole Lotta Love" was genius belonging to Steve Marriott - well vocally and lyrically at least. :smile:

Rumour has it that Stevie very nearly ended up fronting Zep instead of Plant.

I believe you're right, Dave. I think at one time Terry Reid, Steve Marriott and Steve Winwood were all candidates.

Steve certainly liked his P90 guitars, didn't he.
