I've read where the original plan was for those three plus Rod Stewart to hook up, with Bogert and Appice suggesting Cactus as a name for the new group---until Stewart went with the (Small) Faces instead (with his old Beck Group bandmate Ron Wood), Beck had his near-fatal road accident, and Bogert and Appice made off restlessly to form a very different Cactus before they reunited with Beck at last.I saw them at the Providence Civic Center in March or April of 1973. Beck even sang a number, "Black Cat Bone" I believe. A good heavy rock band but it was kind of dated sound already at that time and Jeff changed direction soon after that tour. He said he had wanted to work with the Vanilla Fudge rhythm section for a long time since '67 or '68 before finally having the opportunity in '73. I remember them as being bone crunchingly loud. For the true definition of bone crunchingly loud see Bogert and Appice's previous band Cactus!
Cool! Are those Univox amps on the backline?
