  1. Didn't know that. I just figured they'd attract the same people who were into P-Funk and Earth Wind & Fire. I was too young to see them live; but I remember hearing Cisco Kid on the radio a lot, also, my older sister had a couple of their albums. I believe they're still around.
  2. ^^Great story though! I know what you mean about Black Dog. Back on topic, I think if Whole Lotta Love hadn't propelled them into megastardom another one of their songs would have. Maybe they would have had to wait until Stairway to Heaven, but it would have happened sooner or later.
  3. So jealous you got to see all those bands back in the day. I did actually catch Santana (Carlos, solo) back in the late 80s in NYC, and like you said, the crowd was multi-cultural. Played his butt off as usual. That was a very good show. I saw the Stones twice in '81, but that was in France, so basically it was just a French crowd (and me!).
  4. I can't answer your question for everybody, just me and my little group of friends. Other than Santana and the Stones (which Strider just mentioned), I really can't think of any other hard rockers that black folks were into. I didn't even know anyone my age (who was black) who was into Hendrix. When I bought 'Are You Experienced' in 9th grade, the only people I could really talk about it with were the 3-4 kids in the small hippie group at my school. :-) As far as white bands in general, folks liked the odd song here and there like 'Another Bites the Dust,' as you mentioned, and also stuff l
  5. Cool question! And I had to register just to answer it. :-) I was in 11th grade in 1982 when I first got into Zep. Growing up in the 70s and listening to FM radio I of course had heard all their hits, but at that time I was more into Peter Frampton, Fleetwood Mac and disco -- you know, the soft stuff. In high school I got very into punk and new wave. The Clash were my main band, saw them play a bunch of times. I had an asymmetrical haircut and wore black all the time. Smoked cigarettes and hated the world. Total misfit. One night I found myself hanging out with a few kids from school
