:?: :roll:

Trapeze gets my vote. They were famous around my area in Southeast Texas but it's rare to find people who still remember them.

Their members went on to be in bands like Judas Priest, Whitesnake, and Deep Purple.

I am surprised that amount of people that HAVE NOT heard about them !!

My rock band in the 80s did a label showcase only once. We had done a great set and I was feeling good about our chances...then Kings X played. They got the deal.

Today, their producer (Sam Taylor) is a neighbor of mine. Cool guy...also produced Galactic Cowboys and a CD by Third Day.

This post is pretty long. Has anyone mentioned "The Michael Stanley Band"? I know Michael does some stuff on his own these days.

My brother introduced me to Poi Dog in '90, about the time he was getting into the Grateful Dead, but I was still all classic rock and metal. I really don't remember much about them. I'll add them to my list of bands to check out on youboob.

My obscure bands (at least the 2 I'm thinking about at the moment);

Expanding Man - released one album, '96. I saw them open for Stone Temple Pilots that year.
I just got back into their album, Head To The Ground. The music is post-grunge MOR /AOR, but the vocals are amazing. This guy had the best pipes of any band of that era. They just didn't catch on.

Mona Lisa Overdrive - a duo of studio musicians (one worked for Frank Zappa for years) make Ministry / Nine Inch Nails type music, but on their only album (self titled, 7 songs, 32 minutes), they go through several genres of music, even in the same song. I saw them live at a radio station festival.

Ironically, both of these defunct bands have had their names hijacked by younger acts that I've seen on YouTube. :roll:
