And then he walked along the edge of the Circle

This is the place where we will post your stories about the Green's Playhouse, The Glasgow Apollo and Satelitte City (The Wee Apollo). As it develops we will break the stories up into sections such as Myths, Gigs I missed, Meeting the Bands, Where are they now etc. No story too trivial and we will only edit out bad language!

New Forum structure on Apollomemories soon.

Comments on Black Oak Arkansas [reply]
 
Saw BOA in the seventies with Ted Nugent.   they were pretty good and they had a female singer with them that night ( I think her name was Starr) she drank from a wench's jug and I remember standing right under the stage as she sprayed us below with the "liquid" [reply]
 
I saw them support Sabbath in '74. They were dying the death, as most support acts did, when the drummer suddenly started kicking drum kit all over the stage. It was a clever move as it certainly got the punters on there side. The only song I remember them doing was 'Go Jim Dandy'. They were not a bad wee outfit. Sabbath were better though. [reply]
 
dave i bet the 74 tour was a wild & crazy night at the apollo, sabbath w/ ozzy b.o.a. w/ jim dandy mangrum on vocal's. the drummer you speak of for b.o.a. was tommy aldrige he played the apollo with 4 differnt band's. 1st black oak, 2cd pat travers band ,3rd whitesnake 4th ozzy's blizzard of oz band. may be not in that order, scott & andy will know that 0ne. [reply]
 
i was at the 76 show on a recommendation from someone (danny) who was at the first gig. when electricity came to arkansas never sounded so good as it did that night. ted nugent was on good form. [reply]
 
I too was at that show, I actually got a piece of Jim Dandy to the rescues wash board when he smashes it up, I was well chuffed ! Still have it with all my other memorabilia. A Buddie of mine Reg Vernal used to roadie there circa 1976-1980 he has so much memorabilia from hundreds of shows, autographs you would die for drum sticks akimbo.
