A lot of the better-known other bands have topics of their own. If you don't see your particular favorite with its own topic, feel free to talk about it here. And hey, if it takes on a life of its own we'll give it a topic!
Do you guys remember Klaatu? and their album 3:47 EST?
I forgot all about the fiasco until this made the rounds on Facebook - https://ledgernote.com/blog/interesting/klaatu-the-secret-band-as-good-a... It's a pretty good roundup of how it all went down.
It was the mid-70's and Klaatu released their first album without any mention of who the band members were. It was pretty good, and somehow the rumor started spreading that it was The Beatles under a new name. The record company started encouraging the rumors and it was a huge ordeal. They made a ton of money on that record.
The thing was, they didn't sound anything like The Beatles. They were certainly good, as good as any other prog rock band is good. But the allegations were silly. All of that is besides the point though. The 3:47 EST album is really good. They had some singles after that but I haven't really dug into their discography beyond this album.
10 city run doing "Christmas Caravan" album (awesome)
if you go you wont be sorry!
set you freeeeeeeee!!!!
coming to a concert hall near you, might want to catch this one if you can, he's 69 this year, but still can shred like it was 1971.
Do you plan to check out Elijah Ford on his upcoming east coast tour this July??? It'd be a whole lot cooler if you did! Haha. You won't be sorry folks, seriously. Enjoy!
Elijah Ford began his solo career after breaking from touring with Oscar & Grammy winner Ryan Bingham. Ford is the son of former Black Crowes' guitar heavyweight Marc Ford, and toured as part of Ford Sr's Fuzz Machine at the age of 17 before getting the gig with Bingham, where he stayed until 2012. Ford put out his first solo record Upon Waking in 2011 and his new EP Ashes in October of 2012. Elijah and his band The Bloom are currently preparing their new full length, recorded at Austin's own Arlyn Studios, for release in 2015.
