Interesting article about a venue in Remsen IA, where it appears Denny & The Triumphs played a gig with Tommy Bolin, and promoted the show with a cartoon style drawing of the band.

My friend and me were just done eating BBQ here tonight and listening to Blues Radio Athens Greece on the internet, I said to him I know this song , I was like that's Tommy sure enough I looked and it was Boom A Boom/ Somebody Listen, Zephyr. It sounded like the remastered. Some people are listening. My friend could not believe it ,when I told him when this was recorded, he said sounds brand new.

I had a fellow named Ray Brown write in with some really interesting on the Tommy Bolin Band show at the Armadillo in Austin, TX on July 20, 1976. This show was not scheduled, it was a last minute fill-in. Ray relates:

“Jeff Beck played at Municipal Auditorium that same night with Jan Hammer Group. The Armadillo was located right across a big intersection from the Auditorium. The original version of Journey had been opening a few shows for Beck, but for the Austin show it was initially decided that Journey would do their own show across the street at the Armadillo. There are unused tickets available online for Journey at the Armadillo on July 20, 1976 but that show never happened. Those could definitely confuse people. Anyway, at the last minute, it was announced on KLBJ-FM that Journey would open for Jeff Beck at the Auditorium and, through a record company promotion, The Tommy Bolin Band would play for free at the Armadillo instead of Journey! That’s why there are no ticket stubs or promo material for Tommy playing there. We only found out about it that day and when Beck was done we literally ran on foot across the street to get in to the Armadillo before the doors were bolted, as word had spread. I just managed to get in and Tommy was in the middle of “Wild Dogs.” I still get the chills from that moment.”

Thanks for the info Ray. I added it to the Tommy Bolin Band history page on our main site. That lineup included Tommy Bolin, Mark Stein, Norma Jean Bell, Reggie McBride and Bobbie Berge.

Does anyone know which pickup/s the volume and tone controls on a 3 pickup Les Paul or SG Custom affect? Jimmy Page and one of Kiss are the most famous players who play them (I'm aware of). Steve Miller, Danny Kirwan and Golden Earring's George Kooymans are others.
