Subject: RE: Chromatic Harp, Pedal Steel, diabolical!
Question that has been bugging me all day. In the 70's, there was a rock band who were unique in featuring a steel guitar player. I don't mean a country-rock band like Poco or Commmander Cody, this was a fully fledged, Spandex clad, "I CAN'T HEAR YOU, I SAID, DO YOU WANNA ROCK? " type of band.

But for the life of me I can't remember their name. I remember the steel player used to play standing up, and would pull the guitar back at an angle as he played. Anyone remember what they were called?
