Schiz - Actually, you're right. I always think Pictures of Matchstick Men and Ice in the Sun are similar to See Emily Play et al, but fair enough - Floyd were more Psych than Prog with Syd. Anyway, well done!

We won't quibble! Thanks. I did wait a day to see if Shawn-Of-The-Living would take his turn, but he seems to have vanished! Anyway, I'll set another one and if he comes back he can take his turn.

This American guitarist was born in 1946 in California, and acquired something of a 'child prodigy' reputation in his home town. He went on to become lead guitarist of a local garage rock band which recorded one local only released single on a small label. A (future hugely influential) British DJ at this point heard them playing in a local shopping mall and persuaded them to move to the U.K. which they did in 1966, but despite a huge reputation on the Psychedelic underground scene and a much talked about gig at the UFO club they fell apart after only two magnificent singles. New British members recruited and a name change led to a leading blues-rock group in the early 70's with a future Whitesnaker. Despite a top 20 hit they too faded away and our guitarist went on to play with Joe Cocker and Sammy Hagar among others. He currently resides in New Zealand where he has a bar group and does occasional sessions.

This is a wild guess - Alan Shacklock. I know he played with Bernie Marsden in Babe Ruth. If the future Whitesnake man is Colin Hodgekinson, though, I'm stumped. :)

Not he Leftin.

Come on, Come on!!! With all you 70's music fans on this site, there must be some more ideas! I'll repost:

Sorry guys I've been super busy lately, I think that means I've got 2 to throw back at you which I'll try and do asap.

In reply to an earlier post on 4 Mar 2010 08:22:30 GMT
Yes! Glenn Ross Campbell it is. The two bands being The Misunderstood and Juicy Lucy. Check this out:

OK..Shawn is busy, but think it's worthwhile keping this thread going whilst he's away, so here is one to keep us busy in the meantime:

Born Richmond, Surrey in 1943, this lead singer/harmonica player was an intrensic part of one of the seminal and most influential R 'n'B bands of the '60's. By '68 he and and another member of the band went on to form an acoustic duo, after which he went on to form a long standing band including his sister which experimented in Folk,Rock and Classical music. By 1970, he left and later went on to form one of the most underated and 'Apocalyptic' heavy metal bands of the mid 1970's before his untimely death in a tragic accident in 1976.

Keith Relf!
Soooooo busy!! but I will try and think of 3 for you and post them tomorrow.

Spot on again Shawn. What do you do for a living? Are you a junior doctor in A&E?
Look forward to your ones.

Ah, so Micky Moody was the future Whitesnake man. Glenn Ross Campbell? Not the C & W man, methinks.

In reply to an earlier post on 8 Mar 2010 00:03:21 GMT
Leftin..Glenn 'Ross' Campbell is not Glenn Campbell! Glenn Ross is far the most talented of the two! As I mentioned check out:

Glengarry Glen Ross. Great film!

"Death of a Fvcking Salesman"

(That's what the cast called it apparently because of the profanity levels)

Shawn...I'm afraid you've forfeited your turns as I reckon your not taking this thread seriously enough (although I'm open to Leftin's ruling on this..after all it's his thread!). While we're waiting week after week for you, I'm afraid I'm going to have to step in again and set one to keep this going.
(Only joshing with you Shawn, you jump in whenever you can mate!)
So:

Super 'hot' lead guitarist, part of a band formed from former Iron Butterfly and Jimi Hendrix Experience members. This guitarist was at one time tipped to be better than Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page! Unfortunately only appeared on two albums and then disappeared! Double points to name the band they were in! Treble extra points if you actually have a vinyl copy to sell to me!! (and £50.00!).
Clue is in 'hot'!

Mark - The rule is - there are no rules. :)

Heck, I can't link 'hot' with this guy, but Rhino was the guitarist with Captain Beyond, who made two albums. (In fact, they reformed and made a third one.) Best guess!

Hi Schiz, I think it's April Lawton from Ramatan, but sorry I don't have a copy of the record.

In reply to an earlier post on 13 Mar 2010 12:45:35 GMT
Yep..April Lawton, she was hot and a brilliant guitarist!

And no doubt - you would!

Born in Romford in 1956 (although another source claims he hailed originally from Bideford), this criminally overlooked singer/songwriter's band had their only major hit in 1977. After the band broke up in 1979 following the death of their drummer he went on to form 2 more bands before going solo. He continues to tour and perform to this day and has written two entertaining volumes of autobiography detailing life on the road.

I've added a few more details above in the hope of ringing some bells.

Does anyone want to have a go at this one? the only singer/songwriters I can find from Romford are Imogen Heap and Jamie bleeding Cullum! No idea nocheese.

Is ringing bells a clue?

Somebody Peal or Peel?

Ringing bells was just a metaphor, not a veiled hint.

If it helps, the line-up of his first band (the one's with the major hit in 1977) included a female punk icon.

I'm sorry this one has all but destroyed the thread; I was still smarting from the scorn Shawn poured on my last effort.
