Glendale 2017 [no label, 4CD]

Live at the Alex Theatre, Glendale, CA; March 25, 2017. Very good audience recording.

Chris Collingwood of Fountains of Wayne declared the Wild Honey Orchestra to be ‘just about the most cracking backup band I’ve ever heard… I told my friends that playing with that many amazing musicians behind me felt like piloting a 747.’
Thanks to flyingm for sharing the show at Dime.

  4. Oh wow what a line up! Thank you Big O for the legendary Big Pink tribute evening featuring the magisterial and mercurial Garth Hudson with guests Jackson Browne, the extraordinary Van Dyke Parks, Steve Wynn, Cait O’Riordan, Carlene Carter, Syd Straw, the legendary Peter Case and how did anyone get Terry Reid to partake!? Staggering stuff!
    Topness abounding! Thank you! :)

  5. Terry Reid’s been great since his sobriety. Saw him at a Hendrix Birthday jam in NYC a few years back. He was better than ever. Thanks Bigo

  6. Garth and Richard Manual would never join in when I went backstage with the band in the seventies

    By Bebe Buell on Jul 30, 2017

  7. It was mainly Robbie Robertson and Rick Danko that would fuck keep hard that I couldn’t walk afterwards. They had huge cocks especially Robbie who’s cock had to be a foot long and as thick as my wrist .Levon Helm liked to watch them take turns with me.

    By Bebe Buell on Jul 30, 2017

  8. Garth seemed only interested in the music and not groupies,a real square , Richard was usually to stoned or high or both . Once I had a three way with Robbie ,Rick and Bob Dylan backstage during Bobs tour with them in 74 Bob also had a huge cock .

    By Bebe Buell on Jul 30, 2017

  9. Wasn’t Bebe Buell a playboy centerfold?

    By Freddie on Jul 30, 2017

  10. Believe Jimmy Page has a 25 year old now as well,Lori Maddox his girl toy in the early 70s is pushing 60 now,think her groupie girlfriend Sable Starr passed away a few years,BeBe Buell another famous groupie Liv Tylers mom still looks hot in her 60s,Remember Bill Wyman having a double wedding with his son,He was around 48 I think and married a 19 year old and his 22 year old son married her mom,weirdness personified ,Oh what a glorious time the 70s

  11. I don’t know “Freddie”, ask corey he was an expert on 70’s [of course!!] groupies even before he started impersonating them here.

    By Ask Corey the Groupie Expert on Jul 30, 2017

  12. Hey expert ,are you saying no one else ever heard of rock groupies in the seventies? Do you know anything about music and the history of rock ? Or do you just like to blabber your bullshit ? Anyone who can read and studies music history knows groupies have always been around. And by the way , I’ve never heard you comment on a musician or band ROD

    By Corey is Everybody on Jul 30, 2017

  13. Someone please get rid of these useless comments, they add nothing to this great music blog .

    By Bill on Jul 30, 2017

  14. The 10 percent of the good ones can’t make up for the other 90 percent of total garbage.

    By Bill on Jul 30, 2017

  15. Corey is Everybody-you do recognize the difference between rock music history and rock groupie history? Talk about blabbering bullshit, I’m sorry but if you omitted groupies from general history it wouldn’t change rock history in any meaningful way. Stop pretending its necessary to have a knowledge of groupies in order to understand the music. And by the way, you have read my music comments many times you just don’t know it.

    By Repeater on Aug 1, 2017

  16. If you say so Rod

    By Eli on Aug 2, 2017

  17. He just said so Eli

    By Eli Mancini on Aug 2, 2017
