it's Saturday Night Live (tonight with Chris Walken). Btw, thanks for your support mom. At least one person here gets my horrible humor. Maybe it just needed a bit more cowbell???

I love that cow bell!!
I agree 100%! Funk has gotten a bad "Rap" (pun intended).
Oh, and I found this picture of what I believe was Mr. Pid (before hair plugs, apparently), waiting to get into Studio 64, which was almost as popular as that other place, and hosted much better musical talent. Proof positive that he was indeed a "BlockHead".

iin have had my dose of this places too,but must say that in that time there was a little difference.You had disco and you had funk,and i have to admit that the funky side of this movement was not that bad.earth,wind,fire/johnny guitar watson/brothers johnson,chaka THE khan,quincy jones oh i could fill a page with bands that were pretty hot.the problem was some pubs were not.good grief,studio 54? the place on earth where evreybody who believed he was cool and important enough wanted to be.andy hang out there every night....no there was DISCO and funky music,it was just ones choice in which joint he stepped in:-)(-:
That was funny as shit! I laughed so hard this morning I almost blew a gasket. Thanks for brightening up an otherwise crappy day. I missed 54 but attended a couple of its many clones that sprouted up in the big apple around the same time, same annoying shit, different place. Railroad spikes to the temples, how fitting!
Terrapin disco, hell no! That was Shakedown, baby. Well, well, well, you can never tell.
I wouldn't have minded taking a tour of 54. Just after hearing how quickly some rise & fall. I understand people saying ShakeDown was a bit disco, but Terrapin? Okay, Dancin is NOT one of my favorites, but Prophet & Terrapin, no way! Of course, since Disco was indeed dead by my time, I guess I'm just rambling... PEACE
I congratulate myself on my fortunate escape from ever setting foot in the place!
