    I don't think he could have been a roadie for a more diverst group than those 3 for sure. I'm sure he does have some very interesting stories!!!!!

    I had to look it up myself. Jimi spent a lot of time touring Europe was probably the reason he didn't get down south more often than he did. I don't know if anyone has ever heard Jimi do the National Anthem solo but if you can find it someplace on line you need to listen to it. The performance he did of it at Woodstock was and still is the greatest guitar solo of anything I have ever heard. And from what I also read Woodstock was the only concert he ever did in the morning. Woodstock 1969

    I sure hope your a 380 reloader cause burning 500 rounds of 380 can get rather expensive these days!!!

    It was June 9th 1970 at the Mid-South. The only other time he was in Memphis was when he performed at the Ellis Memorial Auditorium April 18th 1969

    You are OLD!!!!! Welcome to the old Folks Music thread!! I am seeing band names I forgot existed back in my younger years and loving every second of it. I don't know why but I was always content with listening to all of the great music but was never much of a concert goer and now I regret that cause I had many offers from friends to ride along and never did. Of course there was Woodstock but then it was many many years before I went to my second concert and it was at Starwood and Second wife and daughter talked me into going and I saw Lynyrd Skynyrd and Marshall Tucker and the crowd chanted" Free Bird" till it was performed. They thought they were going to get out of playing it but didn't work. When they finally did take the stage they did Free Bird for about 10 minutes solid.

    According to the history books on him, Jimi Hendrix did 217 performances and only 8 of them was south of the Mason-Dixon Line three in Georgia and five in Florida. Some in Texas. I got to see him in 1969 at Woodstock and heard him do the greatest version of the National Anthem I have ever heard. Was in the middle of a medly of songs and all at once broke into the Anthem. I learned later that he did the Anthem at almost every show where he performed in the United States. You can learn more about him on google.

    Well I have 2 Bersa Thunders and Bersa Model 85 with 15 round capacity and all of them have Hornady Critical Defense in them and all the back up mags do to. If I can't stop a bad guy with a Thunder w/ 8 rounds he is either wearing body armor or he is superman.and in the case or Body Armor the last 4 rounds will be at his head if at all possible..................JMHO

    There was quite a few performers that went rock with roots in Country and some Country that got their roots from Rock & Roll and some country music stars whos music crossed over and became popular on R&R radio stations. George Jones had a song titled "The Race is On" crossed over from country to Rock and Roll back in the mid to late 60's. I'm sure there were many others but that one stuck with me cause I liked it back then.

    I think you have nailed that one Raoul. The fans had more live access to their favorite bands back then. By live access I mean getting to see them live on stage at concerts. I regret never being much of a concert goer back then but I did get to attend to me the greatest concert ever. About 10 or 12 days before my deployment I got to go to Woodstock and that to me was the concert of all concerts. I don't know how many folks was her fan but I got to see Janice Joplin Perform Bobby Migee live on stage along side Hendrix on the guitar so does it get any better than that? Got to see CCR and The WHO . There was so many great stars there you could not see them all.

    I have a ton of MO Town performers I could list but many of them didn't have permanent bands as best I can tell. I kind of thought that most of them had great studio musicians and I think Smokie Robinson provided them with a lot of their music like The Funk Brothers in Mo town and the Wrecking crew in L.A. was evidently responsible for most of the music.
