Default This was from 31 YEARS ago...

I found this entire concert on YouTube the other day and remembered loving these guys - because it had Terry Bozzio. I think the music is still good (early Missing Persons, anyway) but that look is very dated. Sniff ;)

Great stuff. I had a cassette of the EP with the different track (Mental Hopscotch?) than the LP.
Still have those Missing Persons records. Bozzio is awesome with UK too.

I can't relate to the good music part, but I agree about boobs.

I liked him best with Jeff Beck on the Guitar Shop album.

And some of the Zappa stuff, but I find much of that a little hard to take. He must have been in his teens playing with Zappa (?) and Missing Persons in his early 20's....

That was both of their songs that I liked! Dale's foil bra was fantastic, but her pants were terrible. She sounded good. I was reminded, though, that I really don't enjoy watching Bozzio play. Looks painful.

Thanks for sharing, Bo. I miss those days! lol

Yes...best with Beck; for my tastes at least. Who doesn't shine when in the light provided by Jeff Beck? His command of the electric guitar is stoopid.

Actually, Terry is now in his 60s. The first time I heard him was on the Brecker Brothers album, Heavy Metal Be-Bop, and that was recorded in the mid-70s, I believe.

A few of us got to see him sound checking pretty close up a few months ago, & he looked pretty damn good for a guy in his 60's :)

Boobs are out of fashion? I must have missed that memo.

And I had no idea Lady Gaga was that old!

Ha! No, I just meant the 80s big hair, thin ties, make-up....I have to admit Missing Persons must've started most of those fashion trends back then. Boobs are good.


Larry oughta' know, right?

I was going to say, if you're going to post from this US Festival footage, you have to include the performance of "US Drag" where Terry just goes off at the end.

But now I can't find that video.

Funny, in the early 80's, I thought they were just another weird new wave band, and it seemed to be all about Terry's outfits (or lack of). It was odd many years later when I discovered Bozzio is a drum god, and then going back and really giving Missing Person's a serious listen, and realizing all the cool stuff he was doing with in a very pop context.
Most definitely an influence.

I also love Boozio on Jeff Beck's "Guitar Shop" and Vai's "Sex and Religion" album.

Bought Spring Session M when it came out. Was about the only New Wave-ish music I ever liked.

It's the Bozzio Breakbeats kit ;)

And yes, Larry looks nothing like her. Somebody should tell him his picture is here.

Haha! Sometimes I wonder if they divorced because he couldn't handle having a wife prettier than him ;)
