Ye Olde Metal: Blackfoot's Strikes
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The 2013 Martin Popoff short ebook about the making of the Blackfoot album, Strikes.
Southern rock’s hardest riff rockers Blackfoot floundered on CBS with two solid but dated records before adjusting their pants, moving over to Atco and rocketing their third record, 1979’s Strikes all the way to Platinum status in the US, for sales over a million copies. Here’s the detailed story of that record, featuring never-before-seen interview footage from bassist Greg T. Walker, band leader Rickey Medlocke, and the beloved and now deceased Jakson Spires, drummer for this legendary live act that few dared follow. Reading this will have you blasting “Train, Train” and “Highway Song” again like 30+ years have never drained away.
