"Got nothin' left to make me stay And no place left to go" Seems the older I get, the more truth I am finding in those lyrics. But to quote Robert Plant "It's nobody's fault but mine." *claps hands together* Damn muskytoes...at least THAT one won't bite anyone again. Now where was I? Oh yeah...Steppenwolf. The band broke up in '72 just as I was beginning my love-affair with music, but that didn't stop their influence on what I listened to. And still listen to. "Hear me holler" Steppenwolf - 7
Track 5. 'Foggy Mental Breakdown'. From the album '7' Written by Larry Byrom and John Kay George Biondo - Bass, Vocals (Background) Larry Byrom - Guitar, Voc...

@JolietJake know this as well but when I hear Steppenwolf, 'Born To Be Wild' is the first song that comes to mind.

Good for you! Of course, in Louisiana, mosquitoes are the state bird..... Have you listened to any of John Kay's solo material? How does it stack up compared to the band?

Yeah these guys are good. If I had the time I would take one day just to listen to my favorites for 24 hours straight. What I do do is that I have saved my favorites on YouTube and then when the mood strikes me I put on my playlist 900+ videos and just let them play on my other PC. Usually takes me several weeks to play them all because I take breaks and I have other stuff to do but it is fun.
