Max Webster! There's a name I haven't heard since Gerald Ford was President.

I think they played on every 70s arena tour they could latch onto. I know they were fourth on the bill when I saw Rush, but I have the feeling I was in the room with them for half a dozen other shows in those days.

Yeah. I checked my list, but it doesn't have opening bands listed for a lot of the shows. But I'd imagine I saw them at least three times.

No "kind of" seeing someone in those days. I watched every band on the show whether I liked them or not (with a few exceptions). I was just a teenage sponge looking for whatever I could soak up.

Their music wasn't on the radio in the Twin Cities (that I remember), but there were a lot of bands that toured like hell in those days and never got onto the radio.

The vocals are sorta early Bee Gees on Philly's very own Parkway Records from 1966

"I've been listening to a lot of Tom Waits lately," but here's a half-hour of snoozy music from my band...

Just a guess.
