Jack was the keyboard player in a band called Tonsingo with Myron Pollack shortly after Bob
and Myron were in Superband.
was killer on guitar Saturday evening, August 23rd (2008) at Jerry D's.
A great time was had by all!
The next day he
and a friend checked out the Erica Brown Band at the Little Bear in Evergreen, CO.
sat in for a set.
Below are a couple of nice shots of Bob
working up a sweat during that set.
Above is a shot of Bob
and Harold Lee taken at Jerry D's on August 11, 2007.
It was fun being able to check out Bob
playing with The Erica Brown Band again.
They put on an excellent show on a hot afternoon at the Taste of Fort Collins event on Sunday, June 10. (06/12/07)
It includes a track written by Bob
and recorded by The Livin' Ends.
The Livin' Ends performed several shows with The Beast
in the late sixties.
Their version of Bob's song "Jolyn," appears on CD for the first time on this release.
They are also featured on the front cover.
This version of "Jolyn" includes an extended intro, part of which was edited out of the 45 release.
has never recorded the song himself so this is a real treat!
Just added is a page relating to Bob MacVittie's
Art of Rock exhibit now taking place in Springdale, Arkansas.
I was there at the beginning for the opening night and it was a great time.

Recently added to the site is a Sugarloaf poster from August 15, 1971 where they performed with War at the Salem Armory.
Ironically they had performed with War exactly one year prior to this date also.
It is a great item, and the story that Bob MacVittie
told me that goes along with the poster is an interesting one.
This is an extremely rare item that comes from the personal collection of Bob MacVittie
The last issue of the quarterly Vintage Drummer from 2004 includes an interview with Sugarloaf drummer Bob MacVittie that pertains to the recording of "Green Eyed Lady".
Awhile back I found out that Scott at www.thepsychedelicguitar.com was wanting to do an interview with Bob
This interview is now posted on Scott's site.
It's an interesting one and is funny also.
Included is a rare photo of Bob from when he was with the Beast.
From left to right is Jerry Krenzer, John Grove, Freddi, Bob
, and Peter Johnson.
Afterwards I conducted a short interview with Bob
on video for an upcoming DVD (that is yet to be released as of 1/3/06).
More on this as it develops. (02/08/04)
On the night of August 23, Bob
and I met at Estes Park, CO to check out a Three Dog Night concert where they headlined at a festival that day that also featured Eric Burdon and the New Animals, John Kay and Steppenwolf, and B.T.O.
Before Three Dog Night, Bob
and Jimmy had played together in Superband and the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band.
I'm pleased to say that Bob Yeazel
and Bob MacVittie
got together for the first time in many years at a small gathering on the evening of April 8, 2003.
On September 15, 2002, I spoke with former Sugarloaf and Brother Son drummer, Bob MacVittie
We had an excellent conversation and he
will be contributing comments and stories to the site, as well as sharing some photos with us in the future.
Bob MacVittie joined Sugarloaf just before the first LP was completed, playing the drums on the last track to make it on the album, the classic "Green Eyed Lady".
He was also the drummer on the Spaceship Earth LP.
After Sugarloaf, he became a founding member of Brother Son and when they disbanded, he became the road manager for War during their heydey.
Prior to Sugarloaf he had been a member of The Moonrakers.
On August 17, 2002, I got a chance to check out The Freddi-Henchi Band, a group that Bob
played in for over eight years.
and Jerry played together in Brother Son
and when that came to an end, they both went on to The Freddi-Henchi Band.
