Submitted by Straycats from Michigan who received a Strong Warning. An easy triple digit MPH Band!
StrayCats says; Blasting north of Higgins Lake on I-75 back in 1986. "Montrose" in the cassette, and the 3 songs most apt to cause pedal depression started: Rock The Nation/Bad Motor Scooter/Space Station #5. State Officer caught me running near the ton (100mph), but when he came up to the car, heard the tune, he said "I love Montrose! Great band!". There was NO traffic, so I was only endangering myself, but he let me off with a SERIOUS verbal warning. Asked me if hitting a black bear or elk at 100 would be a thrill. I replied that it would not,and he let me roll. I did keep the speed down, changed tapes and moved on. Oh; the tape that went in? "Rare Earth Live" which is just as bad for inducing speed. Oh well... " Hey If you can't crank it in the Motor City State, where else?

Blues From the Sky. The band Indigenous displays a striking command of modern blues rock. Although they started as a family band on the Nakota reservation in South Dakota, Indigenous has over the last few years become the province of the sole original remaining member, Mato Nanji. The blues community has always known about Nanji's stellar blues guitar playing, which some have compared to Stevie Ray Vaughn's or Jimi Hendrix. Many of the songs were co -written with his wife and concern strife, both emotional and political. Leah also contributes gospel-inflected backing vocals giving that extra punch to each track. The band originally consisted of two brothers, Mato Nanji on vocals and guitar, Pte on bass guitar, along with their sister, Wanbdi on drums, vocals, and their cousin, Horse on (percussion). The Nakota Nation members grew up on South Dakota's Yankton Indian Reservation, where their father, Greg Zephier, a musician in his own right during the 60s and '70s, became a spokesperson for Native American rights.

Deep Purple. Highway Star from the re-mastered Machine Head was a definite heavy classic, it was here that the band's amped-up blues, progressive instrumentals, screaming guitars, and thunderous rhythms crystallized for the ages, laying the foundation for hard rock and heavy metal throughout the '70s, '80s, and '90s. The adrenaline rush of Highway Star was born on a tour bus going to Portsmouth in 1971 when a reporter asked the band how they wrote songs. To demonstrate, guitarist Ritchie Blackmore grabbed an acoustic and began playing a riff consisting of a single "G" repeated over and over, while vocalist Ian Gillan improvised lyrics over the top. The song was refined and was performed that same night. Current Players are Ian Gillan–Steve Morse–Roger Glover–Don Airey–Ian Paice, former players included; Ritchie Blackmore–Jon Lord–Rod Evans–Nick Simper–David Coverdale–Glenn Hughes–Tommy Bolin–Joe Lynn Turner–Joe Satriani. *Buy the CD *'Artist Discography'
