    Any Nazareth Fans ?
    I loved S'naz back in the 80's.
    I read Manny Carlton left Nazareth in 1990 and now Nazareth is suing him for promoting his band as Nazareth.
    I have seen videos of the new Guitar player and he does not have the low down and dirty attitude of Manny.

    Haha! Hair of the Dog was the first album I ever bought, back in '75. I saw them live one time. The bands on the bill were...

    Wishbone Ash
    Uriah Heep
    Nazareth
    Blue Oyster Cult

    Talk about a 70's flashback. Oh, and this would've been around 1988, maybe?

    Everyone was pretty crummy except for BOC. They were fantastic! Couldn't believe how good they were. It almost looked like a seen from Spinal Tap.

    Uriah Heep was terrible, with the worst choreagraphed stage moves I've ever seen.

    I spent a lot of time with Hair of the Dog when it came out. Still some of my favorite guitar tones.

    I saw them three or four times in the 70s. Great live band and should have been bigger.

    I saw them at Anaheim Stadium in like '77 or so. They were with Nugent and ZZ Top. I left some hearing and some brain cells behind that day.

    Hair of the Dog and Close Enough to Rock N Roll are two favorites. And, this may be just a guilty pleasure but, I always really liked the single "Holiday."

    We were gonna do Somebody To Roll for Manny Charlton's Nazareth tribute record last year,but I had a bunch of pressing domestic issues that prevented that.

    Yeah, I read that also..Manny has some little bar band I think in Texas that he is calling Nazareth. Manny is awesome..but no Dan Mcafferty Vocals, no Naz.

    I saw them back in '77 or '78, I think Whitesnake opened up for them (still had Deep Purple stenciled on the road cases). It was a great show.

    No Mean City, 'Snaz, and Expect No Mercy still get playtime in the rotation at my place now and then.
