MUSIC HISTORY 101 OCTOBER 2, 2012 - British session guitarist BIG JIM SULLIVAN (b. as James George Tomkins in Middlesex, England) died at the age of 71 due to complications from heart disease and diabetes. Best known as a session guitarist in the 1960s and 1970s Sullivan was one of the most in-demand studio musicians in the UK. Sullivan started his career in 1959 as a member of Marty Wilde’s band and when Wilde bought Sullivan a Gibson Les Paul guitar, it was allegedly the first one in Britain. Sullivan taught his neighbor (and future Deep Purple guitarist) Ritchie Blackmore to play guitar, as well as helping Yes and Asia guitarist Steve Howe on his road to success. His playing is featured on 55 hits and around 800 charting singles over the course of his career. He worked with George Harrison, Frank Zappa, Thunderclap Newman, Love Affair, Long John Baldry, Marmalade and The Tremeloes. During Jimmy Page’s session career, he was known as ‘Little Jim’, to differentiate him from Big Jim. Sullivan's m ...

Happy Birthday Spencer Davis. Spencer David Nelson Davis (born 17 July 1939) is a British musician and multi-instrumentalist, and the founder of the 1960s rock band The Spencer Davis Group. Davis dropped the E in Davies and became Davis because in England and in the US his last name was pronounced "Daveys" and not Davis as in the Welsh pronunciation. Davis was born in Swansea, in south Wales. His father served as a paratrooper. Influenced by his Uncle Herman's mandolin playing, Spencer Davis began learning to play harmonica and accordion at the age of six. He then attended Dynevor School, where he passed seven GCE O-level examinations. He moved to London when he was sixteen, and began working in the Civil Service as a clerical officer at the Post Office Savings Bank in Hammersmith and for HM Customs and Excise; but went back to his old school to study for A-levels in languages, becoming Head Boy in 1959. In 1960 he moved to Birmingham, to read German at the University of Birmingham. In music circles, Davi ...

1971, when I moved into John Cipollina's house on King St in Mill Valley, California. Crazy times :-) These shots were taken in John's antique gun room upstairs. John was in the room, but the photos were taken by Mike Moore. We were just larking around as usual :-) This was the beginning of Copperhead...before John came up with the band name. I'd just finished playing "Long John Baldry' Blues Bands" first tour of the USA. If I tried to roll my eyes up in my sockets like that today they'd probably get stuck there.

Excited to announce: The Kyler Schogen Band Live at The Free Press April 11th at 7 Kyler Schogen's stylistic sound, made up of Bluesy Pop/Rock with melodic hooks and jazzy overtones, is all about flowing grooves and soulful deliveries. Starting the Kyler Schogen Band in 1996 and covering ground from Whitehorse to the Mexican border, playing over 1350 shows in the past ten years, he released his fourth CD, “Like Gypsies", in March 2013. He’s opened for Gordie Johnson, Long John Baldry, Northern Pikes, Doug & the Slugs, Warrant, Teenage Head, etc. and has worked with Rami Jaffee from the Wallflowers, Tim Bogert from Vanilla Fudge, Bob Margouleff - producer/engineer for Wilson Pickett, Stevie Wonder & Jeff Beck, etc. Rare opportunity to see a band that can rock a big stage in a small venue with food and drink service at your table. No cover. No Ticketmaster fees. $5 donation to the band is encouraged.
Madman Across the Water- Elton John 1971 Alright, I know, but this isn't Elton working with Kiki Dee and Walt Disney. This is early Elton, coming from working with Long John Baldry and Bluesology. Elton was always top 40 ready, but those first 3 or 4 records had the songs to back it up. I remain a fan of any album with Levon or Tiny Dancer on it and deep down so do many of you. Saw him twice, in Baltimore with Leon 1970 and Richmond 1972, no elaborate costumes just playing and he was good. Later, someone convinced him to go all showtimey. Oh well. Only thing I regret about this album is that Paul Buckmaster? did the strings. Would love to hear it without. I'll give props to the Madman Across the Water. It's Thursday, which means I have 24 hours until Judy's birthday. Maybe I should go shopping today? Relax, spring is coming.

Even though Rod's birthday was yesterday I have something id like to say. I am blessed that we have each other to celebrate his birthday with but I was thinking about Rod fans that are no longer with us but are with us in spirit. They are: Rita Belcher,Colin Jones,Jan Thurnell,and Diane Macnei and in 2005 there was a girl named Maggie who was 5 or 6 who had cancer and as part of the make a wish foundation she and her family got to visit Rod at his home in LA. She passed away in October of 2005. I like to think they were all celebrating Rod's birthday in heaven with his parents,sister Peggy,Long John Baldry,Ronnie Lane,Micky Waller and Dee Harvey. Rod has bought us together with his music but its his kindness that he has for his fans that I truly love and thats what makes him special. =)

Had hits with CCS, including a version of Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love' which was used as the theme for BBC's Top Of The Pops for several years. Became a radio presenter in the 70's.

myRockworld features Long John Baldry - R.I.P. John William "Long John" Baldry (12 January 1941 – 21 July 2005) was an English and Canadian blues singer. Long John Baldry's amazing musical legacy which if properly notated would fill a few pages in any rock encyclopedia. Long John's forty-five year career is a rich tapestry of recording, performing, great bands, discoverer of talent and actor. Long John is particularly known for his associations with former band members Rod Stewart and Elton John. Looking closely at LJB's musical tree you will discover that virtually every musician who came up in England during the 60's have some connection to LJB. Names like Ginger Baker, Jeff Beck, Brian Jones, Beatles, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart and The Rolling Stones are cemented in LJB's musical history. In fact, Eric Clapton has stated many times that he was inspired to pick up a guitar after seeing Long John Baldry perform in the early 1960s. Undeniably, Long John was one of the founding 'Fathers of British Blues . ...

Birth Name Reginald Kenneth Dwight Nickname Sharon (given to him by Rod Stewart) Height 5' 7¾" (1.72 m) Mini Biography Sir Elton John is one of pop music's great survivors. Born 25 March, 1947, as Reginald Kenneth Dwight, he started to play the piano at the early age of four. At the age of 11, he won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music. His first band was called Bluesology. He later auditioned (unsuccessfully) as lead singer for the progressive rock bands King Crimson and Gentle Giant. Dwight teamed up with lyricist Bernie Taupin and changed his name to Elton John (merging the names of saxophonist Elton Dean and Long John Baldry). The duo wrote songs for Lulu and Roger Cook. In the early 1970s, he recorded the concept album "Tumbleweed Connection." He became the most successful pop artist of the 1970s, and he has survived many different pop fads including punk, the New Romantics and Britpop to remain one of Britain's most internationally acclaimed musicians. Elton John announced he was a bisexual ...

Cover version of the day. Three Dog Night part 3. Here is a song that I used exactly two months ago. In that post I used Bettye LaVette's version. However, this qualifies as part of this Three Dog Night study. They did not have a hit with it but they thought enough of it to name their album after it. This is from the April post in case you missed it: You are no doubt familiar with this song, probably David Bowie's version on Ziggy Stardust. However, several versions predate his including Dave Edmunds, and Mitch Ryder. If you just glance at the songwriting credits you might think it was written by Ray Davies but it was actually Ron Davies, an American songwriter who was eventually based in Nashville. I found 13 versions including the most recent one, just this month by Shelby Lynne. What is remarkable about this song is that three of these artists chose to also use the song title for the name of the album as well. Three Dog Night, Long John Baldry, and Chris Smither. I cannot think of another case of that ...
June 7, 1969 was the first public performance of Blind Faith. The show was part of a free concert weekend at Hyde Park, in central London. The bill included Donovan, Richie Havens, Lulu, and Long John Baldry. Blind Faith had come together from remnants of Cream (Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker), Spencer Davis Group and Traffic (Steve Winwood), and Family (bassist Rick Grech.) In the Spring of 67, two months after Cream broke up, Clapton and Winwood began jamming together at Clapton's house in Surrey. They liked the sound and decided to form a new band. Ginger Baker came over and joined in. Winwood convinced Clapton to bring Baker into the band. Rick Grech joined in May. It was less than a month later that the Hyde Park show occurred. It didn't matter. There was so much buzz about the group, that by the time Blind Faith made their appearance, the crowd had grown to an estimated 100,000. Not ideal circumstances for a debut performance by a band together only a few weeks. The Hyde Park set li ...

May 27 65 years old, born 1948 Bassist and Keyboardist. In a career spanning more than four decades he has been a member of many bands and has moved through a variety of musical genres, from early R&B, psychedelic improvisational rock of the 1960s, folk, country music, arena rock in the 1970s, and blues.

It's so nice to come back from my run and see all these messages from everyone. I guess you didn't mind my posting all this stuff about my lovely friend, Long John Baldry. I'm not going to post any more tracks from that album right now, but I thought you might like a little background on that album ... and it might make you smile as well. Wello, around the time I recorded that album, LJB(known to his friends as Aida B. (Rod Stewart was known as Phyllis and Elton was called Sharon), but I digress. Anyway, at that time he was living in Muswell Hill in North London, and Lesley Duncan and I were living just round the corner on Cranley Gardens. And John had somehow acquired this pet goat called Maylie and which is featured on the album cover. And John became well known in the area for his pet goat, because he used to take it out on walks on a leash with him when he would go up to the local shops (convenience stores) to pick up his milk, tea and cigarettes. And of course, it caused no end of funny stories. One ...
I was just writing about an album I produced all the way back in the 1070s with Long John Baldry. It was early in my producing career, but I still think it was one of my best. But it saddens me to know that a lot of the main characters involved in it are no longer with us. Long John Baldry died 2 years ago, Lesley Duncan died last year, the engineer, Mike Claydon is dead, many of the other musicians have also passed. Even the studio, IBC, where I made so many records when I lived in London is no longer there. Growing old is certainly a strange and emotionally challenging process.

Doug Cox and Sam Hurrie are reuniting for one special night at the Cumberland Hotel on Dec 15th. Together, they have been called "Zen masters of Canadian Roots music." They performed together with their band and as a duo for 8 years. They were signed to the Northern Blues label, recorded two award winning CDs together and toured throughout Canada and parts of Europe. Doug & Sam also hosted the blues jam at the dearly departed Edge Pub in Comox for 7 years every Weds night with their musical compadre, Todd Butler. Separately, their musical resumes cover the musical gamut, from Hurrie's early performances with the likes of Jimi Hendrix and later, Honeyboy Edwards, to Cox's musical adventures with musicians like Long John Baldry, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt and even Led Zepp's John Paul Jones! These two West Coast musicians have always had a very copacetic musical relationship and are thrilled to be visiting each others musical chops again after all these years. Don't miss a great reunion of blues and rock and roll w ...

The Beatles are certainly known for their ability to put on a show, but their performances were usually not of the bookish variety. The band made an exception, however, for William Shakespeare's 400th birthday in 1964.

Kathi McDonald passed away yesterday. Another great voice silenced. I can imagine her now in Heaven, belting it out with Long John Baldry again. A fine woman. R.I.P. Kathi McDonald.
For those of you that never met her i'm sure you have heard her voice, this is my aunt Kathi and she joined the happily ever after today with all the greats, much luv happy journey Kathi McDonald When such rock luminaries as The Rolling Stones, Leon Russell, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Long John Baldry, Nils Lofgren and Ike and Tina Turner specifically request her services to record vocals on their albums, then it proves the value and respect they attribute to the passion and prowess of Kathi's voice. Kathi McDonald, a veteran performer, has sung on dozens of gold LPs. Her soulful, passionate vocals combined with her legendary phrasing, impeccable timing and intonation are some of the reasons her vocals are an integral part of so many big hits. Her first solo album, Insane Asylum, was recorded with Neil Schon, John Cippolina, Ronnie Montrose, Aynsley Dunbar, Pete Sears, The Pointer Sisters and the Tower of Power horn section and is now a treasured collectors item. Still today, she is one of the m ...
Just as I'm packing my gear for a "memorial campfire" for Daisy DeBolt, I hear about the passing of another phenomenal vocalist that I had the pleasure of working with. Kathi MacDonald was one of the all-time great female vocalists in rock,blues and R&B. She passed away yesterday, apparently slipped into a coma and never came out. She had an incredible resume, an Ikette at 19, part of Mad Dogs & Englishmen with Joe Cocker, Big Brother (post-Janis), recording with Delaney & Bonnie, Rita Coolidge, Nils Lofgren, Dave Mason, Freddy King, The Rolling Stones and a twenty-year collaboration with Long John Baldry. She spent a little time in Toronto and had a strong Canadian connection via Baldry who toured the world with her. Baldry's band always had a few Canadians, Papa John King, Butch Coulter, Al Webster and others including yours truly when I subbed for Papa John in Brampton (or was it Brantford). Kathi & John made some classic recordings and the bands gave some unforgettable shows. I toured Germany with Ka ...
via John Shirley "fFom Dale Ockerman: We have lost another great vocalist oct 3rd, Kathi McDonald, RIP. She was one of the only white "Ike-ettes" with Ike and Tina Turner, sang on the Stones' "Exile On Main street", with Freddie King, Big Brother, Quicksilver, Leon Russell, a range of artists so vast it boggles the mind, and she always made them sound better for her contributions!". This is very sad.

R.I.P Kathi McDonald. She sang with a band around here when I was growing up called the Unusuals. After that she had a great singing career with many performers including the Stones and Long John Baldry.

Very Sad to hear our Good Friend Kathi Mcdonald passed away, today in Seattle of unknown causes. I can hear Kathi singing Duets with Long John Baldry right now in Music Heaven. I know Long John will be there, waiting at the gates for You!!! RIP Kathi, Much Love to You!!! xo :(
Today is a sad day in my world. My friend , singer Kathi McDonald passed away. Although she sang as an Ikette, for Long John Baldry and Leon Russell and even on the Exile on Main Street Rolling Stones record I'll never forget the night we all sang with her in my backyard at an intimate dinner party. She used to stay with me and help me in the garden. She would walk my dog and love my kids like she was their aunt. She would even make us all the best homemade pesto you ever ate. We spent more time laughing it up with her as her wit was just legendary. Her voice always gave me goosebumps. She was a character for sure and I loved her for that.There will never be another like her. If there is a positive spin on this day it would be that my Bill finally got the singer of his choice. He loved her too. Make some beautiful music up there.

Well it's *** pride parade day again, so I'll have to put up with an hour or so of crappy disco and techno music until they move on. How about some Tom Robinson Band, SNFU, Long John Baldry, Queen, Little Richard or even Judas Priest for a change!
In 1964 this group made its debut by opening for the Stones. It was called the first super-blues group and launched the careers of Brian Auger, Rod Stewart, Julie Driscoll, Vic Briggs and Long John Baldry. Their albums include "Back at the Chicken Shack," "The "In" Crowd" and "Holy Smoke." Who were they?
I'm having so much fun with Pandora Radio, making up my own "stations!" My mix right now includes Nanci Griffith, Queen, Harry Chapin, Karine Polwart (Scottish -- give her a serious listen!), 10cc, Steve Goodman, Sandy Denny, Bad Company, Danny O'Keefe, Long John Baldry, Leo Kotke, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Josh Ritter (and then any artist falling into the same category as those above). I only don't like it when Cat Stevens (whoever he is now) comes on!

Song "Cut Time Boogie" by Mark Unobsky (the tracks rough...but real :-) John Cipollina: Lead guitar Jim McPherson: Piano, Bass & vocals (piano on this track) Pete Sears: Piano, & Bass (bass on this track) David Weber: Drums Gary Philippet: Vocals & Guitar. (I think Jim Murray came up on harp...might have been Gary on harp...I don't remember. We didn't usually have harp so I'm pretty sure it was Jim) I came up to live with John Cipollina after I finished playing the "Long John Baldry" USA tour. I came up to San Francisco from Los Angeles to start the band John and I had talked about forming before I left "Stoneground"; before I left to fly to England to record on Rod Stewart's "Every Picture Tells A Story". When I arrived at John's house he had already chosen most of the musicians, and we began rehearsing at the old white "Quicksilver" house up on the hill in Corte Madera. Ron Polte managed us. Jim McPherson and I would switch back n forth between bass and piano...something I would later do with David Frie ...
