Has anybody ever heard of a group called WORLD WAR III? I saw these guys at a bar in West Yellowstone Montana about 1968 They sounded so much like Blue Cheer It was unreal They were a Trio and played LOUD AS HELL They were great It would be fun to find out what happened to these guys. After the gig in West my ears rang for 3 days it was great.
Kevin played drums on Red Weather and although drums was not his primary instrument he was right up there with the best. Kevin was a hot tempered Irishman and as such pushed many opportunities away as not suited to his taste in music ---Leigh and Kevin got on well as both had extremely eclectic personalities and tastes ----Micky Waller also played on Red Weather , Drums. Micky and Kevin were similar in styles and had Kevin had better luck with fame he would have been better known----. Kevin went hot and cold as far as a friendship with me however over the years it was apparent that he was a musicians musician. Kevin's wife Helen told me recently that a good friend of his named George Gromalski--long time engineer at Olympic studios in London has all of the available master tapes of Kevin's and the plan is to arrange them in order and clean them up and make them available to the public. I had never the chance to hear Kevin's album "When Stars Fade In Hotel Rooms" until I picked up a copy on e-bay after I heard that he died . The album did fairly well in England and at the time sold about 60,000 which is good for England. I was surprised at his maturing as a musician and how he evolved into an unexpected format of rather classical show "like " songs . He loved Guinness and Scotch and his wife Helen. They were married when Kevin was at the end of his musical life when he was about 50.

Hey, yeah! But that`s a darn shame. Surprised though that he was just sixty years old. That`s young nowadays. I gotta say though that whoever wrote the original article that Gypsy Ball copied, could`t spell or punctuate worth a shit! I guess that one just slipped past the proof reader, whatcha say?

For GOD`S SAKE will you fucking LISTEN!!!!!

This is a BLUE CHEER Message Board. GET IT???!!!
There`s been enough SHIT in the past about others spamming for other bands on OTHER BAND`S sites, and who the fuck wants to know what others think is the Loudest Band in the World, when all we are interested in here is BLUE FUCKING CHEER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, Gypsy Ball, do yourself a FAVOUR and stick to the subject in hand, otherwise FUCK OFF to somebody else`s Message Board and give all of us here a FUCKING REST!!!!!!!

A band from 1968 called, World War III? Sounds very interesting did these guys ever make a record? You'd be surprised how many good bands were around back then that probably just stayed on a local level but nevertheless kicked ass,....It's funny but the title of the band sounds much more fitting for what's going on in these here times today Like the title for a stoner rock band

I think it's cool that GypsyBall posted this awesome Floyd show. There is a connection being that BC did open for Floyd once or twice and being that an amazing musician had died today, I see nothing wrong with sending him some respect on this forum.
Just to clarify, it is ok to bring up other bands here that are related, however vaguely to BC. The line gets crossed when someone continuously starts multiple threads about another band, especially when it's a really LAME band like say...Fevertree (yes, I went & listened to their first album, the one usually cited as their best, and this band has no right to be mentioned in the same company as BC. Just because you use a fuzzbox in one tune.....).
