If you mean Matthew Sweet then I heard that he is doing a record produced by Brendon O'Brien with Shawn Mullens and some other guy I've never heard of. A friend of mine (one of my band mates)who knows Brendon told me that Sweet and Mullins have been doing some writing together. I used to play with Shawn some myself. (played on his first album). I always thought Sweet was talented at writing a good pop song.

Cool name dropping...but your showing your age (or lack thereof)...unless I'm a complete ass, he means "Sweet" the band...as in "Ball Room Blitz" "Love id Like Oxygen" , ect. VERY big british band of the '70's.

Their are a lot of "sweets" to go around! :c:

Alecio, Bachman Turner did some gigs later, they basically are trying to reform, but then, that is that.

Bread. Been a long time since I talked to Mike Botts, drummer. David gates did some fine solo work later...no hide nor hair from my perspective of these fine cats.

Gap...Don't know. I did meet their Bone player once...but that was way back, we traded licks, just a jam actually.

I know Luther and remember the cat in the 70's walking down Bourbon Street with holes in his shoes, broke, singing on the corner for quarters...but then...boom, big time. He lost a ton of weight in the early 90's and with the pounds, the voice got weak...gain some back, I am sure is is "on" somewhere.


Naz. Saw them last in 84.

LE, don't know.

Rest of them, have not got a clue dude..

I think Nazerath still tour occasionally. They come from a town a few miles from where I work.

I heard David Gates of Bread is appearing at an event (can't remember which!).

Gentle Giant have never reformed though Kerry Minnear has played in bands and the drummer played with Man, who seem to have reformed again. http://www.blazemonger.com/GG/

Check out http://www.janakkerman.com to hear some great stuff!

Slade still strut their stuff - still popular with university students.

Alecio, Did these bands get a lot of airplay in Brazil? The one's I recognize were big in the mid 70's. I didn't think you were that old.

10)Focus
I don't know where they are, but the song "Hocus Pocus" rocks!

11) Ten Years after
I saw Alvin Lee touring 2 years ago with Bill Wyman (of the Rolling Stones) and the Rhythm Kings. What a good show!

18) Toto (coming back, right?)
One of them is in jail I believe
(but not Steve Luthaker)

19) GTR
GTR was Steve Hackett of Genesis and Steve Howe from Yes - Steve Howe has been touring with Yes recently. GTR got the shortest review I ever saw in a paper.
The review read: GTR - SUX

I toured with Nazerth as a back up act all last summer here in Canada.With a Canadian artist named MICHAEL BEHM ,they had the bass players son playing drums and some other guitar player not th e original from Scotland in the band ,I must say Dan McCafferty blew me away night after night !!Never meet a singer that could drink in the day and sing that material consistant every night after night after night !!!And just for the record I was born in 1962 and used to play Sweet cover songs [remember little willy}

hey, what a pity. The guy really rocked!
Why do most great artist have to be involved with alcohol, drugs and maybe promiscuity? It is something that always blowed my mind..
Is it the lost of privacy? refugee from reality?
Imagine, being famous, recognized, having dreams come true..
I dunno
maybe a bad family?not grown properly? :(
