* This band got their first club gig when a bunch of their friends came by to cheer them on at an audition at a club called, London Fog in Los Angeles. The manager figured they were popular and gave them the gig, but very few people actually attended. They were the house band for the LA club, Whiskey-A-Go-Go in 1966. They were fired after a 'too explict' performance. Name the band...
*This artist was born in Berkeley, CA and grew up in nearby, El Cerrito, which he considers his hometown. He cites Stephen Foster, (who wrote Oh! Susanna and My Old Kentucky Home amidst all of his classics), as his biggest musical influence. He served in the Army reserves in '66-'67. He formed a group you wouldn't normally associate with the Bay area and has had a distinguished solo career after the stormy breakup with his band...Name the artist...
*This artist is probably best known as co-founder of a great 60's band...but he had a pretty cool solo career as well...one in which he surrounded his virtuoso talent of a 12-string guitar with familiar and quite exceptional artists. The album we'll dip into includes contributions from friends David Crosby, Chris Hillman and Tom Petty...Name the artist and band he founded in the 60's....
*Bernie Taupin wrote countless songs for Elton John and some of his early work captured his fascination with America and Old West. An early album contained a song that really didn't have deep meaning but shares some of the joys of presumably in the late 1800's-early 1900's.
Name the album and the song in question...one that was eventually covered by Elton's buddy, Rod Stewart...
