Just went to Youtube for a link to an old Steppenwolf song and spent some time on memory lane. It occurred to me that I got a high percentage of my bass licks off their bass player and don't even know his name. 'Desperation' was a school for me at age 13. All people think of is 'Born to be Wild' and 'the Pusher' but I liked the 'b' side and AOR stuff like 'Renegade', 'Monster', 'Rock Me', and 'Snowblind Friend'. Not known for their virtuosity but were a very musical band just the same.
