Well as we're going down memory lane with all this 70's/80's era stuff anyone remember Blackfoot?

Basically they sounded like a heavy, rocked up Lynyrd Skynyrd who recorded of the best ever live albums  'Highway Song -Live' at the Hammy O back in 1985.  I was there that night and I swear I thought the roof was gonna get blown away it was that intense.  Fantastic experience and the lead singer/guitarist Ricky Medlocke looked a bit like Jack Nicholson with long hair on speed  :)

I think they were also on the bill with Deep Purple at that rain soaked Knebworth show in '85 as well.

I saw them support the Scorpions at Lancaster Poly. Forgive me but I can`t remember the year, `78,`79??

I remember a song they did called Morning dew, absolutely brilliant.

Were`nt a couple of the band actually Blackfoot Indians?

More the wifes tastes than mine. But then she was also big int MSG, (thats Michael Shenker Groups Stew not fecking Meet & Greet all right!) Scorps, Blackfoot, Y & T, Hughes & Thrall and also Bon Jovi!. But what most peole are ignorant about, is that the very early Bon Jovi was actually HM. They supported AC/DC and apparently blew them away!

I think the drummer, who had the great name of Jackson Spires, and bass player who's name escapes me for the moment were Native Americans -- dunno if they were Blackfoots though.

I also recall that their second guitarist was about 7 foot tall !
