Bozzio! And Bozzio!
Best thing I can say is: that's very 80s.
I think it's great.
Very awesome, and what a band!
I saw them in '84, when they were touring for the "Rhyme and Reason" album - it was one of the most memorable shows of any genre for me. Terry had his electronic set under a huge drop cloth prior to starting, which caused quite a stir. He had a "Raggedy Ann" look - hair died red and in pigtails, rouge, fake freckles, etc. He killed!!
The only low point was Warren - he seemed really down or out of it.
Dale had quite the outfit. Thanks for the mammaries, er, memories.
Incredible talent from the Frank Zappa camp....my drummer shared a rehearsal space with Bozzio at that time....fantastic drummer. Warren Cuccurullo is a great guitarist.
Yeah, I was digging it! Great drummer!!!
I always hear Dale as a big influence on Gwen Stefani's singing.
Missing Persons was interesting... Killer players, but more fashion/fad than music first it seemed. Very much of its time, ya know?
Spring Session M is a great album. One of my favorite from the 80's. I like Warren C.'s guitar playing a lot on those tracks. Patrick O'Hearn is not with the band in the video(?)
I still listen to SSM regularly.
Warren Cuccurullo is awesome.
And her look! I've always thought that too. I LOVE Spring Session M, putting this vid on my to-watch list when I'm not at work.
I loved that band and was bummed when they split after Terry and Dale did.
Another +1 for Spring Session M. I still listen to it, as well.
Fashion shmashion. When the songwriting and playing and band chemistry is there, it is there.
Another band from this era that I still listen to, and think deserves more attention: The Fixx
Watched this the other day. Coincednce?
I dug them and have the "best of" collection. I assisted their road crew which were an incredibly nice bunch of guys. Met Warren after the show--a most gracious and sincere guy. His playing blew me away.
Hey, I'm right there, you can just see me.
It's just always so funny to know they're basically a Zappa spin-off band.
Good stuff though. (the mix does get better as the show goes on)
I bet if you showed this video to people today, 999 out of 1000 would think Dale is actually Lady Gaga. Minus the cotton candy hair, she's like a clone of her look.
I'd love to know what the white gas bottle on the bass synth stand is for...
My old college band is talking 30th reunion this year and I hope to talk them into doing some Missing Persons. We used to do Words, Walking In L.A., and Mental Hopscotch. Trouble is, our rehearsal time is short and those songs are a lot harder to get tight than a lot of our others.
thanks for posting this. Missing Persons was a great band. I still listen to them.
