I have absolutely no idea who 38 Special are! Embarassed

One of those bands whose music just didn't travel I guess.

That's actually very interesting.† You're telling me you've never heard any of the .38 Special tracks posted?

A lot of those songs were huge international hits as far as I know.

Well, they were big hits in the States...but that was also 30 years ago.

Boris - Does southern rock in general have a following in the UK? Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, Allman Brothers, Blackfoot, etc?

Skynyrd and Allman Brothers had some minor hits in the U.K. I was aware of Blackfoot and Molly Hatchet as they were championed in hard rock circles but I don't think that 38 Special had any impact here at all. surprised

edit, I've just played at least a part of all of the songs posted and nope, nothing jogs my memory in the slightest. So my vote goes to Allman Brothers er.. Skynyrd!

I would've never even guessed that. Minor hits, crazy! Makes me wonder how bands like Humble Pie did.

The most famous southern rock song in the UK is Allman Brothers 'Jessica' by a mile because it's been the theme song for BBC's 'Top Gear' since 1977.

I doubt there is an adult in the country who doesn't know that one.

ZZ Top were popular here in the Eliminator era.

But the most successful band in the U.K that can be described as southern rock is Kings of Leon.

I know I was wondering how a native UK southern rock band did compared to US southern rock bands over there. But my guess is that something totally went over my head. surprised

Ah I gotcha now man!

Yeah, what you have to remember is that nowadays the U.K is a lot like the U.S in terms of media coverage, everyone has access to a gazillion different outlets to find music. But in the U.K in the 1970s it was really limited to the BBC and three or four music papers and they became extremely elitist at that time. They had Floyd, Yes, King Crimson, Deep Purple, The Stones, Bowie, Led Zeppelin and countless other U.K based bands to gush over so a lot of U.S groups didn't really get much of a look in. Not that many of the American bands tried too hard, they were too busy making millions in the huge territory that is the U.S market and didn't put a lot of effort into trying to crack a piddling market like Britain. Most people in the U.K know The Grateful Dead more for their stoner fans than for the music they made.

There were some fans of this type of music though and plenty of bands had underground followings. Humble Pie were not as big as they could have been and I suspect that they were a lot bigger in the States. I think plenty of Southern rock's influence can be heard in the pub rock sound that gained some popularity in the '70s.

About the only show that really seemed to dig this music was a TV show called The Old Grey Whistle Test

So it was a media issue. Never knew that; learned something new today. Those Grey Whistle Tests seemed to be a source of good exposure for different bands--apparently it was somewhat helpful to Tom Petty.

They still sound pretty good live, but would love to see Jeff Carlisi return sometime.



And they have a new song on their website, but it sure doesn't sound like Don Barnes to me.

For the second time today, I've had to admit to a band I should know a bit about - and for the record, I'm not talking about Lynyrd Skynyrd. I feel so uneducated!
