Atomic Rooster
« on: March 06, 2012, 08:33 PM »
Anyone remember this band?
I had the 1971 album 'In Hearing Off' with Paul Hammond on drums. I listened to it a lot when I was young and really liked the drums, which were really inventive in a prog rock/blues double bass style.. Carl Palmer was the original drummer, but  haven't heard his work with the band. I see on Wikipedia that Ginger Baker also played with them. Think I'll youtube them and see what I find.

Wow I love youtube. Paul Hammond left Atomic Rooster for a band I'd never heard of called Hard Stuff. Nice raw early 70's sound.

Wow, forgot about this band.  I think I still have one Atomic Rooster album, but haven't listened to it in probably 25 - 30 years.
