Named after a famous (?) and notorious wrestler
of the 1960s! Isn't it a perfect name for the band...
I love this record (originally released on Polydor
in 1971 I believe) with its combination of cheesy
Vanilla Fudge-style melodramatics, heavy
Mountain-type guitar thunderers and almost
arrangements with lots of organ. But nobody
seems to know a damn thing about them other
than Leslie West's little brother was in the band
and they were from Long Island NY.
