Very cool. Note that the upcoming show advertises Buffalo Springfields. Love were introduced at Fillmore West as The Love. I don't care how you say it, would pay anything to have seen these guys, live, in their heydays!

So this is from Michael about the Love/Sons of Adam gig at the Whiskey (above):




...Actually this is my first gig with Love after we had recorded Da Capo. We debuted the album at The Whisky. I joined up in late-August/early-September just in time for the Da Capo sessions after Arthur had seen me play with The Sons of Adam at Bido Lito's the previous late-spring (like around May). The gig with Love at The Whisky was with Craig Tarwater on lead guitar with the Sons and me drumming with Love.

Somewhat complicated I know.

I only wish you could have seen and heard me play live. Unfortunately, I was recorded light, by lightweights like Bruce Botnick so my recorded sound is "light and tasteful". Good engineering is, for the most part, all in how you adjust the potentiometers. I had a much heavier sound. More like a mixture of Mitch Mitchell combined with John Bonham.

When I got off the stage a couple of years ago, after having sat in with Johnny and the Love Revisited group, a guy came up to me and said, "Man, you were ferocious!" That was more my sound, rather that what you hear on Da Capo and Forever Changes, ergo my disappointment.

--Later, Michael

Wonder what's at 8901 West Sunset Blvd now. I am still very happy I had the opportunity to see Arthur and the boys many times when he started touring again.
