Joey Molland   Badfinger

Badfinger autographs, circa late 1980's.

Click here for Joey's myspace page.

Great link for BBC site for Badfinger.

At left is the autograph of one of our absolute favorite artists, guitarist Joey Molland, who played in one of our most favorite bands, "Badfinger."  Badfinger was a pop/rock band from England who, in 1968, was signed to the Apple Records label, a record company owned by The Beatles.  This autograph was obtained from Joey when Badfinger played at Mancini's Lounge in McKees Rocks, Pa., in the late 1980's.  I wouldn't have this if it wasn't for my sister-in-law, Nancy T., who had the guts to ask the guys for their autographs.  I have this half, and Nancy has the other half, of a catering menu we used for them to sign.  You can see the other Badfinger members, Mark Healey, Randy A., and a signature I can't quite make out, each also signed their autographs.  Badfinger was great that night.  Thanks for the autograph -and especially all the great tunes Joey.  Rock on, Lou.

The Bayou, once located at 3135 K Street, NW, at the foot of Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown, beneath the Whitehurst Freeway, was a great rocknroll venue located in Washington D.C.  I used to go there regularly in the late 1970's and early 1980's.  Many a bad-to-the-bone bands rocked their stage.  The matchbook in the photo is an original pack from around 1979.  George L., the bartender at the upstairs bar back then, will forever be responsible for me not remembering some of the concerts there, by great bands like "The Nighthawks" and many others, 'cos his drinks were killers!  Thanks George.
Click on the Wikipedia link below to read about the Bayou.  Anyone have photo's of bands who played there and stories to share about the famous Bayou?  If so, send them in.

This is the top of the Capitol Records headquarters building near the corner of Hollywood and Vine in Los Angeles, California.  This photo was taken around 1986 or so.  When I saw that building and thought about just how many H.U.G.E. artists recorded for that label, well...I almost, uh...never mind.  Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Judy Garland, (she was friggin' Dorothy for cripe sakes) The Beatles, Badfinger, Ringo Starr, Grand Funk Railroad, Steve Miller, Sammy Hagar, Bob Seger, Wings, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Cold Play, Garth Brooks,  jeez, the list goes on and on.  This place is cool to just look at.  Picture submitted by Lou.

Click on the building to check out Capitol Records official web site.  Have fun.

Listen to The Rockets by clicking here,

Hey Lou,
Check out this Detroit band "The Rockets".  Not sure if you ever heard of
them - my uncle turned me on to this band and they really did rock back in
the early 80's.  The webpage is The Rockets - Lets Rock.  It took a while to
locate this webpage, but the lead singer links back to Ted Nugent and The
Amboy Dukes (1971, ask your friend if he remembers this band), Bob Seger and
Alice Cooper.  We went to see this band every time they played Pine Knob -of
course I saved one ticket stub.

Lovin the website keep goin..Michele

Ted Nugent

Capital Centre - click the ticket stub to enlarge
Ted Nugent concert ticket stub, 1979

A ticket from the Ted Nugent Concert at the Capital Centre in 1979. I recall this being the Wango Tango tour. Note the ticket price, including tax, was $8.80!!!  The tax and service fees alone on today's tickets are more than that. The Capital Centre was blown up (by developers) almost 5 years ago to this day (December 15, 2002) to make way for a shopping mall.  Many acts played here; at least one DVD from KISS has footage from the CC.  A documentary, "Heavy Metal Parking Lot (?)" was filmed in the mid 80"s about fans waiting in the CC parking lot for a Judas Priest concert.  The Capital Centre is gone; Eight dollar tickets are gone..but the "Nuge" rocks on!!!! baby!!!!!!!!  AB

Here's a cool WKNR - "Keener 13" music guide from the week of February 27, 1964.  WKNR was an AM radio station in Detroit, Michigan, back in the day.  Note that The Beatles held three of the Top 10 spots: # 1. She Loves You, # 2. I Want To Hold Your Hand, and # 3. Please Please Me.  Keep in mind that this music guide is dated only 18 days after The Beatles played live on The Ed Sullivan Show which aired on February 9, 1964, on CBS television.

"Save the Grande"

Tom Gaff of Russ Gibb Productions is currently in negotiations with bands  who played Detroit's legendary Grande Ballroom in the 1960's and 70's, hoping to sign them to play at any of a series of benefit concerts to "Save the Grande" Ballroom.  Under the watchful eye of "Uncle Russ" Gibb, founder and creator of the famous Grande, Tom and former Grande MC Dave Miller are masterfully assembling local and national rockers from back in the day...and some from Detroit's current music scene, to play in concert at The Royal Oak Music Theatre.  Money raised by the concerts will be donated to the Chapel Hill Church, who recently bought the building which housed the former rocknroll venue, for its renovation.  Check back for dates and times of the "Save the Grande" concert series.
(Psst...just so you know...Tom is talking to Joe Walsh who said he's in, but only after The Eagles finish their current concert schedule!!!  Cool.)

You can e-mail Tom at to get info, to donate time or money, or if you know a band, or former band member, from "back in the day" who may like to volunteer their time for this rocknroll benefit.
