It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

One of your best Whoa. I had never heard of this band, so today's write-up was particularly informative for me.  Love the fact that you didnt go for the low-hanging fruit today! (not that you ever take the easy route)

Thanks guys. I love the obscure, great stories, as you can tell. Bonzo would have been easy, true. Just did Zep on Friday, though, and frankly there are some things about him I just can't celebrate, you know?

Anyway, what did everyone think of the band?

Sounds kinda like a British version of Molly Hatchet or Black Oak Arkansas, IMO.

I knew two things about Keith Relf prior to reading - he was in the Yardbirds, and died tragically (electrocuted while playing guitar iirc).

Now I know three, well done.

I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...

Martin Pugh is a pretty great guitarist, too. He played in the band on Rod Stewart's first solo album, along with Ronnie Wood, Keith Emerson, Ian McLagen and others. Nice backing!

A little late today but well done WN. Like some others have mentioned and to the surprise of no one I had never heard of them before. Definitely a very interesting story. I am thinking I will have to queue this one up on google music and give it a listen.

Never heard of Armegeddon or this guy, or that he was electrocuted. Great job, Whoa!

Pebbles snatched by everyone.
