    This guitarist from Atomic Rooster went on to form a band with ex-Quatermass bassist/vocalist John Gustafson called Hard Stuff. They put out 2 albums, the best being the second, called Bolex Dementia. Both albums are available, remastered:

    Hard Stuff is new to me, even if a friend and I were thinking of starting a new domain,
    for dating, looking for single women, called Hard Already.
    Atomic Rooster was one of those bands that wasn't big on the pop charts,
    but a lot of rock musicians had their albums, very influential.
    Yes, this is free old man talk,
    but having a Strat and using Marshalls was a big part of sounding the best.
    Uriah Heep, the original Fleetwood Mac, Camel, lots of unsung guitar based bands.
    I was thinking of that four piece band that made Peter Frampton,
    but I can't think of their name.
    Here in Ontario, "A Foot in Coldwater" was one of the first Strat and Marshall bands,
    an offshoot of "Nucleus", a house band put together by a Toronto bar owner.
    They have a hot domain. I'll look it up and be back.
    "Make me Do, (Anything You Want)", a slow song, was their biggest hit.

    If you like Strats and Marshalls, get some Groundhogs, and maybe some Wishbone Ash (Pilgrimage).

    Atomic Rooster was on a lower level than Hard Stuff, because John Gustafson was such a good singer, writer, and bassist.
