THE ROLLING STONES SELL OUT CANDLESTICK PARK

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES- OCT 18, 2019…THIRTY EIGHT YEARS AGO THE ROLLING STONES SOLD OUT CANDLESTICK PARK FOR BACK TO BACK SHOWS. THE FIRST SHOW WAS HELD OCT 17, 1981, AND TODAY MARKS THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE CONCERT (OCT. 18, 1981). IT WAS ALL PART OF THE STONES “1981 AMERICAN TOUR” IN SUPPORT OF THE ALBUM ‘TATTOO YOU.’ IT WAS THE LARGEST GROSSING TOUR OF 1981 WITH 52 MILLION DOLLARS IN TICKET SALES FOR 50 CONCERTS. BTW, ADJUSTED FOR INFLATION IN 2019 MONEY, THAT’S THE EQUIVALENT OF $ 149,560,000 DOLLARS IN TODAY’S MONEY. ROUGHLY 3 MILLION CONCERT GOERS ATTENDED THE SHOWS, SETTING NUMEROUS SALES ATTENDANCE RECORDS. THE ENTIRE TOUR WAS PROMOTED BY BILL GRAHAM.

THIS VIDEO IS HD QUALITY FROM A PERFORMANCE A COUPLE NIGHTS AFTER THE SAN FRANCISCO SHOWS (UNFORTUNATELY ALL OF THE CANDLESTICK VIDEO IS OF VERY POOR QUALITY).

ALSO ON THE BILL AT CANDLESTICK WAS GEORGE THOROGOOD. HERE’S AN OUTSTANDING VERSION OF ‘ONE BOURBON,ONE SCOTCH, ONE BEER.’ NOTICE THE ‘SAN MATEO’ HAT ON ELVIN BISHOP

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES- OCT 17, 2019…LYNYRD SKYNYRD RELEASED THE ALBUM ‘STREET SURVIVORS’ 42 YEARS AGO.THREE DAYS AFTER THE LAUNCH OF THE RECORD, 3 MEMBERS OF THE BAND DIED IN A PLANE CRASH. THE CRASH KILLED RONNIE VAN ZANT,ALLEN COLLINS,AND STEVIE GAINES. GAINES’ OLDER SISTER, BACKUP SINGER CASSIE GAINES, THE PILOT, CO-PILOT, AND THE GROUP’S ASSISTANT MANAGER ALSO DIED IN THE CRASH. MOST WHO SURVIVED THE CRASH WERE SEVERELY INJURED.THE ORIGINAL COVER FOR THE ALBUM WAS PULLED FROM THE SHELVES.

HERE’S THE ALTERNATE COVER

THIS IS THE ORIGINAL LYNYRD SKYNYRD LINE-UP PERFORMING ‘SATURDAY NIGHT SPECIAL’ IN SAN FRANCISCO AT ‘WINTERLAND’ A YEAR BEFORE RELEASING THE SONG ON ‘STREET SURVIVORS’


MONTROSE

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES- OCT 17, 2019…GROWING UP, THIS WAS MY FAVORITE HARD ROCK ALBUM. IT WAS 1973 AND ON THIS DAY MONTROSE RELEASED THEIR SELF TITLED ALBUM “MONTROSE.” THE GROUP WAS SPECTACULAR. FEATURING THE GUITAR WIZARDRY OF RONNIE MONTROSE, DENNY CARMASSI ON DRUMS, BILL CHURCH ON BASS AND THE RECORDING DEBUT OF A YOUNG SAMMY HAGAR ON VOCALS, THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST UNDERRATED ALBUMS IN THE HISTORY OF ROCK. POWERED BY TRACKS LIKE ‘BAD MOTOR SCOOTER’ ‘MAKE IT LAST’ ‘SPACE STATION #5’ AND ‘ROCK CANDY’ SOME CRITICS HAVE GONE AS FAR AS LABELING THIS ALBUM AS “THE FIRST AMERICAN HEAVY METAL ALBUM.” KERRANG MAGAZINE HAS RANKED THIS RECORD AS THE “4TH BEST METAL ALBUM OF ALL-TIME.” AN INTERESTING NOTE, IN EUROPE IT WAS RELEASED UNDER THE TITLE ‘ROCK THE NATION.’ THE ARTWORK WAS SWITCHED, WITH THE RECORD COMPANY REPLACING THE BAND’S PHOTO WITH THAT OF A LARGE BUSTED BLONDE SPORTING A PINK SEE THROUGH BLOUSE. HERE’S THE EUROPEAN COVER:

THIS IS MONTROSE FROM 1974 PERFORMING ‘BAD MOTOR SCOOTER’


METALLICA COW PALACE MEMORIES

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES- OCT 17, 2019…ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS I LOVE METALLICA ( OTHER THAN THE FACT THEY AN OUTSTANDING BAND), IS THIS GROUP GOES OUT OF THERE WAY TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR FANS AND REALLY INCLUDE THE FANS IN EVERYTHING. ELEVEN YEARS AGO, METALLICA OPENED UP THEIR REHEARSALS TO FANS AND CONTEST WINNERS AT THE COW PALACE. THESE WERE REHEARSALS FOR THE “WORLD MAGNETIC TOUR” WHICH LAUNCHED 4 DAYS LATER IN ARIZONA. I WAS THERE AND THE REHEARSALS WERE SPECTACULAR. HERE’S THE FIRST SONG PLAYED ON OPENING NIGHT OF THE TOUR.

JIMI HENDRIX “ELECTRIC LADYLAND”

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES- OCT 16, 2019…FIFTY ONE YEARS AGO TODAY THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE RELEASED “ELECTRIC LADYLAND.” THIS RECORD IS THE THIRD AND FINAL STUDIO ALBUM FROM THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE, AND IS THE ONLY LP FROM THE GROUP TO BE PRODUCED BY HENDRIX. ‘ ELECTRIC LADYLAND’ WAS THE EXPERIENCE’S ONLY NUMMBER ONE ALBUM. IT WAS DRIVEN BY THEIR COVER OF THE BOB DYLAN TRACK ‘ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER.’ CONSIDERED BY MANY AS HENDRIX’S GREATEST WORK, THIS DOUBLE ALBUM IS RANKED #55 ON ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE’S LIST OF “THE TOP 500 GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL-TIME.”

HERE’S HENDRIX WITH A GREAT SONG FROM THE RECORD.

A LIVE PERFORMANCE OF ‘VOODOO CHILE’

FLEA’S B’DAY

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES- OCT 16, 2019…HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO FLEA, THE FOUNDING MEMBER AND BASSIST FOR THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS. FLEA FORMED THE GROUP IN 1983 WITH HIS HIGH SCHOOL FRIENDS ANTHONY KIEDIS, HILLEL SLOVAK AND JACK IRONS. TODAY FLEA IS 57 YEARS YOUNG. HE WAS BORN ON THIS DATE IN 1962 IN MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA.

HIS LEGAL NAME IS MICHAEL PETER BALZARY ( NO, HIS PARENTS DIDN’T NAME HIM FLEA)! HE WAS GIVEN THE NAME FLEA BY ANTHONY KIEDIS ON A SKIING TRIP, WHEN KIEDIS NOTICED FLEA’S JUMPY STYLE AND MANNERISMS AND THE NICKNAME STUCK WITH HIM EVER SINCE. FLEA HAS APPEARED ON EVERY RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS ALBUM.

ALWAYS KNOWN FOR HIS OUTRAGEOUS BEHAVIOUR AND PUSHING THE LIMITS, HERE’S FLEA LEAVING NOTHING TO THE IMAGINATION.
