    Opened this thread whilst I was listening to “Bodhisattiva”! Weird!

    Awesome! TIL

    I can't tell who's on keys but Simon Phillips is on drums. This video looks to early 90's

    I have the DVD and CD from the show - probably gray market stuff but excellent quality both released in 2011. I had a boot video around 1991 taped off Japanese TV.

    Nice...

    Also I see that the singer is unlisted (un-super?)

    A guy named Rick Livingstone - no idea where he came from. Passable singer. Three brothers named Richardson provided backing vocals.

    It's like Ringo's All-Starr Band, but without Ringo... o_O

    Was this really a creative entity, or just another flavor of Ringo's AllStars?

    Is it just me or does Joe Walsh, even by rock star standards, have a bizarre and slightly disastrous taste in stagewear?!?!?

    No, not 1970's.

    I saw 'em in Honolulu 1990.
    A year after I'd seen Entwistle and Simon Phillips on the '89 Who tour.




    found my ticket :

    Poor choice of a band name. Very generic.
    Easily overlooked and confused as an adjective.

    Wow. I feel ashamed as an Entwistle and Emerson fan that I don't know about this group. Plus Baxter and Walsh? Sheesh, what a dream team!

    here's another one for you all:

    also in 1990:

    joe walsh was in a band from new zealand called 'herbs".....played on one album (the whole album) called 'homegrown'.

    info here:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbs_(band)

    and there are a couple of video's on you tube, but the album is nowhere to be found (at least by me)
