How did these guys ever make any money ? There are 85 of them in the band.

They didn’t. In the mid-seventies, touring bands were pawning their gear to buy the gas to get to the next town. That’s how I got my acoustic 361. It came from K. C..and the gang or Kool and the something, I forget who.

I barely remember any of the stuff any of you are mentioning.
I just remember the slow demise of prog rock caused by the excessive cost (and silliness) of carting around an ice skating rink or a flying saucer.

Best name dropping I can do.

Long live Dino Rock!

Which is probably why, when I peruse this thread, I just hear the ghosts of the Ramones and Sid Vicious shouting, “Didn’t we kill this shit? Why won’t it stay dead?”
