Jake's off topic music thread...


Recommended Posts

 

Jake, have to admit that's my favorite Herman's Hermits song. They were the smilingest bunch I ever saw, and their smiles were infectious. I'm smiling now just watching them. No pretentions, just good fun.

 

 

On a sadder note...

 

 

I woke up this morning and discovered Alvin Lee had passed away.

 

 

TYA's performance at Woodstock is still the highlight for me - the movie that is, apparently I'm one of the few people who didn't go to the Woodstock festival.

Good morning Metairie Road,

 

Love to be in old Metairie right now. Truly a beautiful and historic

city. Once lived very near to you and have been on its streets

many times in the past. Familar with the Parish, Jefferson Parish.

 

I am a graduate of UNO.

 

Can't tell you I'm the biggest fan of Alvin Lee but I do remember his

music and still hear it from time to time on classic FM stations.

 

He was known as a great guitarist and I do remember his time

at Woodstock.

 

I will always remember Herman's Hermits. They made some of the

best upbeat rock and roll ever made. They had a couple of years

when they sold more records than the Beatles or Stones.

 

The Dave Clark Five deserved to be inducted into the R&R Hall of

Fame and so do Herman's Hermits.

 

Take care,

 

Jake
