• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

I attended the 2nd Annual British Rock Meeting on Insul Grün in Germersheim, Germany in May, 1972. A lot of name brands - especially if you were into UK and European groups as well as American acts. The Kinks, Pink Floyd, Rory Gallagher, Quiver, Wishbone Ash, Amon Düül II, Nazareth, Osibisa, and... Humble Pie.

By the time Steve Marriott and company hit the stage, I was headed off the island. It didn't make a difference, as Humble Pie was so loud you could hear them clear across the water. Wow.

In the early 70's I had this crappy Lear jet 8 track player Steve & Peter rocked me to sleep many a night .

Still today I feel fortunate to have this and many other British bands in my life , The Brits have such a sound its theirs they own it .

Was lucky enough to catch them twice at the Eastown Theater in Detroit with the original lineup. They put on probably the most intense display of sheer rock power that I've ever experienced! Loved their version of "I'm Ready" where everyone takes a turn singing. Fantastic!! And Frampton's sound and lines were just incredible to me. Probably the first guy I can recall doing real diatonic modal stuff. Of course I didn't think of it that way back then, I just thought he really knew the neck well and played notes that none of the blues guys like Clapton or Page or West or Gibbons, etc.... played back then. What a great band. While they never really had and huge hits, it was all about album sales back then...
