Hendrix's former manager said he quit in part due to all of the "hangers on" as he called the entourage of sponges that followed Hendrix sucking the life force from him.  Looks like they are still hanging on.

Schwartz was an amazing lead guitarist, one of my favorites (along with Jeff Beck).  I had the privilege of seeing him live up close (close enough to talk to him during breaks). I always found the echoplex (effect at 2.01-2.24) to be frustrating because it threw off my timing.  I was afraid to use it live for that reason.  Schwartz on the other hand was not bothered by it.  He could play pretty much anything live as well as he did on these recordings.

I had the opportunity to see these guys in a small venue.  I was probably less than 15 feet from Glenn Schwartz.  That dude was awesome.  He could do anything with those fingers!

I always loved this song.  Steve is one of my favorites.  I also love Nicky Hopkins (RIP) who did the piano work on this song.

Nicky was a lovely man.  I wish he were still here making music.

I saw this band a couple of times, before and after the legendary Glenn Schwartz on lead guitar.  Schwartz inspired me to want to play blues (Jeff Beck inspired me to play guitar).  My favorite solos were on Jelly Jelly and Motor City's Burning (from Get it On).  The second time I saw them, Utterback was on lead.  He was playing a cherry suburst LP with mini-humbuckers.  He was going through all solid state equipment with some effects to further brighten the tone.  I have never heard such ear-piercing treble before or since.  I had a mild case of tinnitus when I left.  Anyway, that concert was in Opelousas, LA and this redneck dude in the front row was trying to get them to cover top 40 music.  This song was the response.  My brother and I inched closer to the exit in case a fight broke out.
