Was Peter Fredette in that band as well?
I'm not sure who the other members were at that time.
I saw The Pat Travers Band in 1979 at Spartan Stadium in San Jose. They were on a bill with Cheap Trick and Blue Oyster Cult. Good times
Saw Pat years ago at this little bar in Portland OR.
I was with my brother and another friend.
He played so well, and so much killer material. A bunch of Hendrix songs.
After words, I got to have a beer and speak with him a bit. Great guy. We were friends for a little while. Good times.
Only time I ever saw Pat live was in 1994, at the Gibson 100th Anniversary concert during NAMM in Nashville. Kiss, Fleetwood Mac, Brother Cane, and Mother Station were also on the bill. PTB was smack in the middle. Great show by all bands though.
Wish I could have seen the Travers/Thrall/Cowling/Aldridge lineup!
Here is a shocker-
In 1980 I saw him at the Coliseum in my town which seats 8K and it was full.
Last year he returned and played a tiny venue that is so small my nephews band turned down a gig there, probably seats 75 people max.
I had the Pat Travers album with Boom Boom on it.. really liked it... now it sounds like he is using more gain and Im not digging it as much... I'll have to go back and listen to the original at some point... who knows?
It has been 40 years since he had a popular record.
For a similar "fall in popularity" story -
In 1986, some friends saw Kim Mitchell headline at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto....
Less than 10 years later Kim Mitchell was playing the same CLUBS as his own tribute band in the Toronto area. He's gained a bit more popularity since then, now playing casinos and such.
I don’t like him particularly, but I loved his band.
I saw the Black Pearl show in NYC at the Ritz. Was so disappointed that Pat Thrall wasn’t there.
Big Travers fan here. He was gigging to pay the bills from '85-'90. Then he released School of Hard Knocks in '90 and it was great. Then he did a Gary Moore and was rockin' blues for many years. "Halfway to Somewhere" is my favorite cd but I have everything he ever released. Saw him about 5 times.
Yes. Probably the biggest inspiration for me to sing lead and be the singing/guitar playing frontman.
Pat Travers/Pat Thrall......one of the best guitar duos ever!
