Trivial Q: Who was the harmonica player, with what band, covering what band's song128

The harmonica player (call him #1) and his band (where he is the vocalist) had four top ten songs in 1984. Big breakout record for this aging rocker.

The band he played with (call them #2) (a lot actually, not just this one song) on this song is on what is considered one of the all-time best live rock and roll records of all time.

The band whose song is covered (#3) on the live album did it themselves on their 1972 record. This band went on to huge international fame and fortune and even commercials. The covered song and the song the harmonica player is on are different songs on the same live record refered to above.

Story is, the #2 band who made the live album was at a show of #3, and wanted to hear a certain song, when #3 didn't play it, #2 decided to make it their own and recorded it looong before #3 was super famous.

Is that garbled enough??

who is #1,#2, and #3.

and Johnny Cash Live at Folsom prison. Good stuff on that.

Good answer btw. Jay has an electric dog polisher for you and a copy of the home game.

I just got a hankerin' for Boys are Back in Town one day so I bought the record, then another (Live and Dangerous). And I've been on a steady diet of these blokes for about amonth now. Never really lisstend to them in the 70's but sht that band had a lot to offer, was more influential that i'd known, and has some great music; brawling Irish angst and breezy California melodic guitars....yum.

I heard an interview once with a convict who was on a forest fire crew. He said sometimes while working the fire line, they used to sing some modified Johnny Cash.

I hear that train a-rolling, it's rolling round the bend. I hope it's carrying women, cause I'm tired of (shagging) men...Yeah, I'm stuck in Folsom Prison...

I can't hear that song anymore without hearing their modified lyrics!
Ouch. Sorry to hear that. As for #3128
