McQueen Street. A Guns N’ Roses Skid Rowesque band, only I liked them better. Very good musically. Better than all of the crap hair metal bands of that time who were playing false metal.

My guess, why they never took off the way they should have, is they came on the scene a little bit late. Music had started to go in a different direction by then.

Although I didn’t consider them a hair metal band, that’s probably how they were categorized. Hair metal was no longer the flavor of the day. All of the people who thought it was cool to dress up and pose, had had now jumped on the next bandwagon.

Widowmaker, which consisted of such notables Ariel Bender of Mott the Hoople, and Spookytooth, and Bob Daisley the original bassist of Ozzy and before that Rainbow and Chickenshack.

Bob Daisley left for Rainbow and shortly after that the band disbanded. They actually had some good and interesting material, but never made it past opening act status. Although going from being a prominent member of a band to a side man, Bob saw a better opportunity with Rainbow.

One thing that stuck out about them, is their was one peculiar picture where each member looked the same as the other, and I don't believe they were brothers.

Check it out, some really good stuff.

Sir Lord Baltimore - Ah yes, a person after my own heart. Title song Kingdom Come is very Black Sabbath-ish. Reportedly they were first band called "Heavy Metal" in Creem magazine.
Gamalon is great music, I have 4 of their CDs, I'd like to think they're not that obscure.
Here's some that I have/had the albums from:
Ultimate Spinach, Chocolate Watch Band, Mae Blitz, Tucky Buzzard, Hour Glass (Allman Bros band), Orpheus, Crazy World of Arthur Brown (not really too obscure - Carl Palmer start), Bloodrock, Porcupine Tree, Michael Stanley Band, Poundhound, Spooky Tooth (again not really too obscure).
I got plenty more if anyone wants to really dig into R&R musical history.

Hey Kick Asner -
There was also a band named Widowmaker with Dee Snyder - I know you're spot on with your description (especially calling out Luther Grosvenor - cheers to you for that), but interesting there were two Widowmaker bands.

Lothar was the group's theramin. In the early 70's Kim King came and auditioned for the band I was in in New Jersey. They had relocated from out west somewhere and minor success as an opening act for some groups.

Ever thought of making all four into one big supergroup? Maybe for one big gig? Markapalooza :idea:

Short answer... No.

Longer answer....

But Kenny (gtr) and Mike (drums) play w THE 121's and The Spincasters.

Kenny will be helping PJAZZ out when he sits in on a cpl of dates that Bill (bassman) will be missing. I'll move over to bass and we'll be in trio mode w him playing the heads and doing most of the soloing.. He's a great rock, blues, and ctry gtrst but really is not a jazz cat by any stretch so it'll be interesting.

I've tried to get Sarah (fiddler/gtrst/bassist/vclst in MM's ) out to sit in w THE 121's at the trkstop but so far no dice.
