Chris Norman & Suzi Quatro – “Stumblin’ In” (1979)

August 18, 2008 at 6:27 pm (Music)

Okay, forgive me for this one but it’s one of those guilty pleasures of my childhood. And I’m sure there are others out there that like this song too & just don’t want to admit it. And yes, Suzi Quatro was Leather Tuscadero on Happy Days. Most of her stuff was actually harder edged than this and she was more of a Joan Jett type, this song not withstanding.

Shuggie Otis – “Inspiration Information” (1974)

Original Cover

Written Feb. 12, 2007…

Shuggie Otis was a genius.
If you’ve never heard of his name, then you have no idea how true that statement is. He is the epitome of the UNSUNG artist. Only made a few albums under his own name, including this, his masterpiece, and then disappeared into the annals of musical obscurity forever. What a tragedy! If he had died, it would be understandable for no more music to be released from the man. But how did such a talented guy simply disappear and at such a young age?

Grace Slick & Jefferson Starship from the early 80s performing “White Rabbit” from their Airplane days. Interesting to hear Starship doing this song in their harder rocking style.
