Pink Floyd 1970 – Rare Live Footage – KnuckleBonz

Not far from our San Francisco (East Bay) Studios, Pink Floyd performed a live set that was shot at PBS Station KQED. This was done just ahead of their performance at the Fillmore West the following eve in 1970. The KQED taping was eventually released as an “Official/Bootleg” DVD, but they station unearthed about 30 minutes of unseen footage some years ago that Floydian may not have seen, Astronomy Domine.  It’s interesting to note that at this point, the band has what will become the classic lineup in place with Davis Glimour now taking over for Syd Barret. However, they are still struggling to break thru with record sales in the USA. That begins to happen in 1971/1972 when touring in support of Meddle. On those dates, the band used the first set to debut a set of thematic songs know as “Eclipse.”  That of course was the incubation period for what would become Dark Side of the Moon that would be released in early 1973.

Check out this rare Pink Floyd Footage Live at KQED 9San Francisco) here.

Pink Floyd Division Bell – New Music for the Last Time – March 28th, 1994

On this day on 1994, Pink Floyd released Division Bell. This was the 14th Studio Album for the band and the 1st to be recorded without a shroud of legal issues stemming from the exit of Roger Waters.  The album was co-produced by David Gilmour and Bob Ezrin. There we reportedly (65) pieces of music the band had improvised that were whittled down to become the 58:47 minute LP running time. Rick Wright would receive song credits for the first time since Wish You Were Here in 1975.

The world tour for Division Bell was the most elaborate in the storied history of Pink Floyd. It would see “Mr. Screen” tower behind and over the band during the show like an alien space craft. An articulated Mirror Ball hovered over stadiums around the world and would morph into a flower as the band closed the show with Shine On You Crazy Diamond. An amazing site we were fortunate to see at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. You can experience this tour in the amazing “Pulse” video. That’s worth a re-visit for any true Floydian.

Maybe we should have, but little did we know, this would be the last world tour for Pink Floyd…the Ringing of the Division Bell had begun.

KnuckleBonz is celebrating the Division Bell with our Limited Edition Statue for our On Tour Series. This hand-cast and detailed statue is officially licensed with Pink Floyd and ships with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity on the statue base. Order Your Here…

Pantera Far Beyond Driven Peaked at #1 – What a Subject for KnuckleBonz 3D Vinyl

Far Beyond Driven #1 Album Debut – What a Subject for KnuckleBonz 3D Vinyl…

On this day 1994 Pantera released the album Far Beyond Driven and it soared to number # on the Billboard Top 200. Quite a accomplishment for any band, but this was industry shaking for the metal music genre and fandom. Phillip Anselmo, Dimebag Darrell , Vinnie Paul Abbott and Rex Brown were on the top of their game and credited for saving the metal scene. Now to be honest, we all know metal does not need saving actually and will NEVER die, but I think we all felt some pride surrounding this record.

We are well into shipping our KnuckleBonz Limited Edition statue for Pantera Far Beyond Driven. This addition to our 3D Vinyl Series saw the 1st production lot Sell Out almost immediately and we just landed some more inventory. Like all KnuckleBonz Collectibles, this is a limited edition. Not more than 1994 will be cast for Pantera Superfans and collectors worldwide. Order your here.

March 17th 1982 – A Bitter Sweet Day for KnuckleBonz…Randy Rhoads and Diary of a Madman Tour

March 17th is always a bitter sweet day on the KnuckleBonz calendar. It’s the day we saw the great Randy Rhoads at the height of his guitar hero powers on the Diary of a Madman Tour in Atlanta. The Omni was SOLD OUT and the 2nd Ozzy Osbourne solo record was charting hard. The band was now a firm Arena headliner.

Can remember watching Randy Rhoads that night in front of the towering Diary of a Madman stage set and being struck by the fierceness of his playing. However,  is was in contrast to his posture on stage. What we were hearing did not seem to match what Randy was doing with his hands. It seemed so effortless for him. It was unlike anything we had every seen. All in our crew at the show were music Superfans, but none was a guitar player. We simply did  not have the ability to understand what we just saw. I told Delores Rhoads about this when we met about the 1st KnuckleBonz statue in 2003 for Randy and she knew exactly what I was talking about. She said, “Yes, Randy was always in good position, his left elbow at his side with good posture. Good posture is the foundation for any instrument.” He was so schooled, now it all made sense.

While the excitement and appreciation of that eve  will never diminish, it is always accompanied with the memory of the utter shock of only 2 days later when we loose Randy Rhoads in the plane crash on March 19th, 1982. Can’t believe it has been 40 years…no words. RIP RR…

We are currently In-Stock for the latest Randy Rhoads KnuckleBonz Rock Iconz Collectible statue as well as 3D Vinyl for the Diary of a Madman Tour.

Order Here: Randy Rhoads

Order Here: Ozzy Diary of a Madman 3D Vinyl

Pink Floyd – Live Performance as an Art Form

As Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon creeps up on the 50th Anniversary next year, it’s important to remember the impact the album had musically. However, for us here, it’s even more vital to remember the impact Pink Floyd would have on live concert performance that can be traced back to this era. Evolving from the liquid light shows in the Syd Barret era, The Floyd introduce Mr. Screen in France 1973 along with  the short films of Ian Emes. These short films loosely tell the story of the individual tracks of the 42:49 minute Dark Side of the Moon. A touchstone moment. Pink Floyd also performed Dark Side live with the Roland Petit Ballet, an unbelievable mash-up for 1973. The success of Dark Side of the Moon allowed the band to expand on these live performance ideas that would grow into the gold standard for what a stadium rock concert experience would become. Pink Floyd was the 1st  to take their own custom sound and light equipment  out on the road. The original lighting stage dress featured cherry pickers with stage lights that moved during the show…an cool concept that was born out of necessity because of the issues surrounding a traditional light truss. There is little pro-shot film for video from this era…the stills we have must tell the story. What an amazing time for music…

We hope to create some of the moments for the KnuckleBonz Collectors and Pink Floyd fans around the world later this year.

Coachella and Stagecoast Fesivals Drop all Covid Protocals

Trending in the right direction?

Earlier today the Coachella and Stagecoach Festivals Drop all Covid Protocals. Hopefully, Bottle Rock and other festivals can move to this.

Bottle Rock is the lineup that KnuckleBonz is lost looking fwd to with Metallica, Pink, Greta Van Vleet, Grandmaster Flash The Black Crowes all scheduled to perform. That’s by far the most diverse lineup of the early/spring festivals.

Hope to see you out there…

Rock Hard!   It can so easily be taken away…
