    Mars Cowling!!!

    One badass bassist....one badass band! There was some guy who posted some stuff recently about Mars, who's been pretty incommunicado since PT. Chopper, do a search on "Mars Cowling" and see if you can find the thread...evidently the guy is acquainted with Mr. Cowling.

    Gettin' Betta, Betta All The Time....

    Boom Boom and Snortin Whiskey were the "Hits" but my favorite was a song called "Rock & Roll Susie"


    Classic Blues Rock.
    Mars was also listed as aranger on some of the disks.

    Perhaps my favorite "play along" album is "Live: Go For What YOu Know". Incredible bass lines. I still can't nail all of Mars' riffs but it's a blast trying to keep up with him.

    Funny, I was just looking at Pat's website last night. www.pattravers.com

    to be honest, the only reason i got into any of his stuff was because Nicko McBrain of Iron Maiden played on 2 PT LPs in the 70s, Putting It Straight and Makin' Magic. Great albums. His debut self-titled LP is great as well. I never bothered to check out anything after the Nicko stuff.

    Tommy Aldridge took over on drums after that. Pretty killer player, too. The whole band on "Go For What You Know" was smoking.

    My brother is a big Pat Travers fan, so I listened to all his albums when I was younger. The only PT record I had(and still do) is "Heat in the Street".
