105.7 The Hawk's Wingstock 2007:

The Marshall Tucker Band
Foghat
Little Feat
Paul Rodgers

Little Feat was the absolute highlight of the show. It was incredible. During their set I snuck in to the VIP seating, to where i was right up to the stage, it was awesome. As if that wasn't cool enough, during one of the songs, the female singer was walking around the stage, shaking hands, and I was able to get a handshake. I am one lucky bastard.


Lowell George is dead. There is no Little Feat.

OOOH! That one hurt.


They were still incredible, I don't care what anyone says! :wink: No Roy Estrada either.

Poor R 'n' R year.

When I saw Gong (the reunion) in San Francisco they played the "Jazz From Hell" album while the crew set things up after the opening act.

When was this? Was Hillage, P Morelen & D Allen all involved? (hard to believe if so)

I've seen (Planet?) Gong (D Allen) once - 1977/8/9? or thereabouts - in Baltimore - they did some Planet Gong, some G Smith/Mother Gong and quite a bit of the trilogy...awesome show - a large group of us had perhaps the entire 3rd row - with a very nice Marantz pro deck in the middle and mikes at each end of the row! (not an atypical posture for our group...)

Jeez, I don't really remember the date. 1995ish? It was their first US tour as far as reunions go. I think it was Allen, Smyth, Malherbe, Howlett, Pyle and a newbie. It's a shame that Gong Est Mort has never made it to cd. A great live one. BTW, just heard that Allen's GOOD MORNING album has just been released on CD after being out of print for 15 years. GREAT album

so then.

UGLY BOKKY BUGGERS 37 - SPICKS 13

so we now have an interesting situation as the Poms must play the Kaffirs in the RWC 2007 FINAL having had their peachy creamy bums whipped 36 - 0 in the group stages by said neandertal degenerates and our dear, dear european partners (please dont make me puke) the french must play the Argies for third place having lost first match to der Pumas.

Hard to call these games particularily third place play off as tiss our 25th ainversary with said Argie menace this year. That said was the frigging frogs who sold em those exocet missiles to a frigging mutter millitary dictatorship athat used em to kill our boys so i personally have to side with the Argies for 3rd place. most of em wernt born then - besides, one cockrell on its own aint much of a meal for a Puma.

that said, least the french where gracious in defeat and had a scrum - unlike the Aussie Crims or the irrelevant irish - O Driccoll is a fucking wanker and a discrace.

so - like the frogs now - good rugby team - good people - scummy government.

cut to the chase - POMS 21 - BOKS 18 .

another fluke result to get the aussies all hot and botherd and you know where the 3 point diff comes from.

aye - janni de bere pay back time.

Mungo

I would love it if I was in a band with "Hocus Pocus" as our most famous song. Something tells me I'd never ever get tired of playing that one. And I'd bet that they've played that song at almost every show they've performed since they wrote it.
