49 years ago today

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

"...heard about a then-little-known Southern rock outfit called The Allman Brothers Band.: :lol:

"Other performers included Big Brother..." Was that the real post-Janice band?

Idk for sure at concerts, but it looks like they were still going by the full Big Brother and the Holding Company in 1970.

I came to know of The Allman Brothers Band, of course, none of the others besides Wet Willie, who I really liked. Amazingly, they're still active, though I don't think I've heard of or thought about them since the 1970s.

Janice wasn't there but I saw BB... with Janice a few weeks before and after.

the Allman Bros played several hours each day. It was years before I could enjoy Whipping Post again.

Much of this weekend remains foggy.
