A fabulous band from Los Angeles. A darling of the Underground.
They produced three brilliant albums before heroin rather messed up their lives.
I was fortunate to see the later incarnation live. Arthur Lee had harnessed a young band and they were brilliant – every bit as good as the original. Johnny Echols played with them on one occasion.
Meeting Arthur was like meeting a legend!
Then, just when the band was pulling in huge crowds, he gets ill and dies. Life is so unfair.
But today I will be playing my three favourite Love albums and wallowing in the music!
