  • Gentle Giant Performance - A's Jersey mid-70s

    I am posting this more for historical interest than for the music (not a comment on the music).

    The percussionist is wearing a custom A's jersey and A's cap.
    Seeing how this is performance of a British prog-rock band in the mid-70s, he just sticks out like sore thumb.

    LOL!!! I'm just watching the clip roll along getting into the feel of it. Everyone else is dressed like Elizabethan disco pirates and suddenly it looks like some grizzly mountain man had rolled Gene Tenace on the way to the Coliseum.

      Thanks, that was a hoot. I'm more of a Jethro Tull man myself. British prog-rock doesn't get any better than this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PcX_D5Z_CA

      Warning: this has absolutely nothing to do with baseball, but after watching that Gentle Giant clip, I needed a taste of the real thing.
      They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

        Bill Bruford (the drummer for Yes and King Crimson) used to wear a Boston Bruins jersey around the same time.

          Don't want to get too far away from baseball, but the Tull clip was great- brings back memories. In April 1969 I was home from the Army on medical leave and saw Jethro Tull with a friend at a small theater in Pittsburgh during their first US tour. They hadn't yet gotten close to the Thick as a Brick era, but they were really cool- the first- of many many- progressive bands I was to see over the years and decades to follow.
