Didn't realise this band was still around. Judging by this clip, would love to see them at Bluesfest.

Hold up, what's going on here.
Didn't this band start in the early seventies.
Man they look so young, and their rockin' out to boot.

Perfect fit for Bluesfest.

I reckon Steppenwolf had three of the best songs of all time - Magic Carpet Ride, Born to be Wild and The Pusher. But after that it's pretty slim pickings. However, they are three really great songs!

I liked Sookie Sookie as a youngster. I think it was the flip side to Magic Carpet Ride?

Back in the 80's they came to australia - and played the Hells Angels festival at Broadford in Victoria - where famously a person from the Hells Angels came on stage half way through their set - to tell
them how poorly they were playing. I believe his name may have been Bearing.

This is a pretty famous story in music circles - lesson - if you go and play for the hells Angels - you better not have forgotten how to rock out - or you will be called out

I read up on them this morning. The clips were from 2008. The only original member is the lead singer. Obviously they're playing the music under his direction. I had had a few rums last night so when I looked at the other guitarist I just thought "he's certainly aged well !!! Anyway, they're still good. I also agree with Repete. Some brilliant songs and some very ordinary ones. My kids gave me a Steppenwolf record for Christmas last year or the year before and it did give me a good blast from the past.

A mate of mine who rode a bike (he was also an engineeer) was killed doing what he loved most (not engineering) some 18 years ago. The song at his funeral was Born to be Wlld Applause

Saw them in San Francisco in the seventies and singer was only
member left. Probably a Steppenwolf tribute band might be better
value.
How about someone starts a festival with the best of the tribute
bands? Then those nostalgia people can get their fix.
The good tribute bands are usually better than the half baked
dragged out originals.

one of their best....now just a memory of my youth.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes
I get a good time feeling every time I hear those blues.

Great Tune.
And Easy Rider contains Dylan's lyrical masterpiece.
