Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

A Little Classical Music There, Kids

Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter, the guitarists, get all the accolades for this one, but a Canadian fellow from Bombay named Prakash John is the bass player. Listen to the bass player.


  1. I’m lucky enough to have met Prakash on a few occasions, classiest man in Rock&Roll. He played with Lou reed, Alice Cooper (in his prime), Parliament…..Gretzky’s wedding, and he is a teetotaler so his stories aren’t so foggy. Cool looking mofo also…

  2. If you were writing a book about a rock band and you gave them all these names . . .

    Lou Reed – vocals
    Pentti “Whitey” Glan – drums
    Steve Hunter – guitar
    Prakash John – bass
    Dick Wagner – guitar
    Ray Colcord – keyboards

    . . . then your editor would say “That’s ridiculous, no one’s gonna buy that . . . . Go try again, with a believable combination of real world names . . . “

    I saw Prakash a few years back at the blues fest on our little isle, and I even drove by gretzkys wedding by accident when he was coming down the steps. Fella from me hometown Regina by the name of jack Semple was the fantastic guitar player in the band (whatever they were called, the Lincolns?) back then for the weddin but sadly not when I saw them recently.
    The whole shows from rock and roll animal have recently come out in the right order if you know where to look.
