I'm not sure I remember the band Fanny.


For me, it was Fanny's Pantry that was so good in the mid-1970's.

You never forget your first conquest in the Valley.


Two years ago, I was wandering around the Church Bowl, after an absence of decades, and was pleased to see people still enjoying the Pantry.


Yosemite's magic covers a tremendously wide bandwidth.

It's a crime I never heard of them. What song, Best Drummer, they deserve their own thread. These days, many with much less talent, are far richer. Doesn't surprise me Wobbler isn't quite there yet.

Wobbler man. It isn't always a contest, no? Considering the company you keep, I'm sure you aren't a bad guy. I just think you're a bit off about some things.

Likewise, I appreciate the folks on the taco. First hand accounts of a unique time are pretty rare. Just that some of your posts give me insight about the "boys club" Lynn Hill sometimes wrote about.

I'll bet you know her, shared a rope, pushed standards.

Hopefully,, think of this as a friendly, what's Up? Then again, maybe I just don't get it.

Let's talk story. No thread drift here. Hula is only bare breasted women in grass skirts? Some Polynesian cultures were matriarchies. Got uncles and aunties? Finally, if you go to the islands try remember where your'e from. You hold your head too high and you might not see what's under you feet.

Don't you surf too?, oh man. aloha. Really aloha.

Here's an interesting set of solos:


But I have to agree that classic rock was dominated by men - it was a product of its time.

...real musicianship hasnít been cool since Punk

Wobbler for the preemptive "swing and a miss"!

Yep, and from the roots of rock and roll, punk was born. Lest we forget the late great David Bowie, an artisan who reached out to generations to come. Bowie's band mates, Earl Slick and Mike Garson, also opened windows for the next generation to express themselves outside the same ol' classic rock template. Peter Murphy of Bauhaus fame respected Bowie, as did Daniel Ash with Earl Slick.
