Blast from the past - moving on

God I had the BIGGEST crush on the one with the mandolin, Eric Faulkner.

What freaks me out is I spent half of last night listening to old BCR songs, and you know what?

Those guys actually were not bad. They wrote most of their own music (Marlena was one of Faulkner's and Stuart Wood, the acoustic guitar player), didn't waste time on flashy dance moves, they just played solid pop that has actually stood the test of time, it's still good, more than thirty years later.

No, they aren't on a par with the Beatles, or Clapton, etc. But they beat the crap out of the Backstreet Boys or N'Sync or any of those manufactured boy bands.

They're still good. Who woulda thunk it? I guess this is why the band went from 1970 into the early 80's, an unheard of long run for pop bands.

Hell, they don't even need any cowbell!
