Blackfoot

Blackfoot were contemporaries of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and tried for years to make it as a Southern rock band, although they finally succeeded as a hard rock outfit, in the manner of AC/DC and the Scorpions. They racked up a hit album (Strikes) and a pair of successful singles ("Train, Train," "Highway Song") in the late '70s and early '80s, before they became lost in the post-MTV era of visually oriented bands.

The group started out as a quartet comprising singer/guitarist Rickey Medlocke (the grandson of bluegrass musician Shorty Medlocke, who wrote "Train, Train"), drummer/singer Jakson Spires, bassist/singer Greg T. Walker, and lead guitarist Charlie Hargrett. Named Blackfoot as an acknowledgment of Medlocke's heritage, they were signed to Island in 1975, evidently as that label's resident Southern rockers, but moved to Epic the following year. Neither relationship was successful, but in 1979, after moving to Atco, their first album for the new label, Strikes, hit a responsive chord -- the group spent the next few years on that label, racking up impressive sales with the follow-ups Tomcattin' and Marauder.

In the mid-'80s, Blackfoot added ex-Uriah Heep keyboardist Ken Hensley in order to bring a new side to their sound. Their fortunes declined amid the advent of MTV and the growth in importance of rock video promotional clips, as well as the influence of sounds from Europe and Australia, and they never recovered, despite efforts to adapt their sound and image. Hensley was replaced, and a new lineup recorded Rick Medlocke & Blackfoot (1987). Only two albums, Medicine Man (1990) and After the Reign (1994), were released during the first half of the 1990s. Committed to his duties in Lynyrd Skynyrd, Medlocke put Blackfoot on ice in 1997.

The following decade and into the 2010s, the band was active as a performing act featuring original members but not Medlocke. Blackfoot released a handful of live sets, including On the Run (2004) and Fly Away (2011). In 2012, Medlocke -- still part of Lynyrd Skynyrd -- chose four new musicians to represent Blackfoot and acted as the band's producer. ~ Bruce Eder

Don't read this because it actually works. You
will be kissed by the love of your life on the
nearest possible Friday by the love of your life.
Tomorrow will be the best day of your life.
However if you don't post this you will die in 2
days. Now you've started reading so don't stop.
This is so scary put this on 5 songs in 143
minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's
name will come on the screen in big letters.

Ricky medlock was in lynyrd skynyrd as the drummer from 70 until 71 and was with the band when they recorded the muscle shoals album. Which was recorded before pronounced but wasn't released until the 90s

We experienced them here in Reidsvlle, NC as far back as '72 or '73, before they cut their first album, No Reservations . Lenny Stadler played Bass for them then, and we were their little pothead groupies. Great times!

Saw them in 79 or 80 in jax fl with Nugent and then got lucky enough to meet Rickey Medlocke at a mutual friends house Max L. in rolling hills. Needless to say it was a GREAT night. Would be good if skynyrd would let Rickey do a couple every now and then.

This is the harshest bio I have seen of any group in Pandora and it pisses me off....Black f o o t is a southern rock band that stands on it's own.....like Rush, they put themselves out their and always put out to the max.....I have seen them 14 times and I left every show feeling quite satisfied and totally pleased. Blackfoot is a DAM good band.....and long withstanding . . . . . . # @ % $ my a** if you feel differently Pandora
