Untitled[edit]

I'm skeptical of July 27, 1974 being the last date Tommy Bolin played with The James Gang, as they played a show in my hometown of Flint, MI on 8/15/1974. I remember that because I was really geeked to see them, but I was scheduled to be on my honeymoon that week with my first wife. As it turns out, I should have gone to the show instead. I know the show actually happened because at the time I knew people who attended.198.2.5.101 (talk) 19:56, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

did the james gang play is a session with jeff beck

Not that I know of but a pre Led Zeppelin track which was a Jimmy Page arrangement of Ravel's Bolero which included guitarist Jeff Beck was included in an original version of the James Gang album The James Gang Rides Again in a song called The Bomber. To my knowledge Beck and Walsh never played together at least in the studio.

should something be added about the fame that came out of Fat Boy Slims's number one hit right here right now, the song was heavily sampled from one of their songs, thats how i heard about them! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.187.113.66 (talk) 15:39, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

The first rock concert I ever attended was at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit, where the James Gang opened for the Youngbloods. Since there were just three musicians, I wonder if the info on the May 1968 show is correct, i.e. maybe it wasn't the Cream they opened for, but the Youngbloods. I would love to know the date of this excellent James Gang + Youngbloods show. Does anyone know? 216.228.176.203 (talk) 11:57, 11 September 2010 (UTC)Eddie Kinnamon

I am looking for authentication and cannot find it elsewhere. Indeed other internet sites repeat that the James Gang's opening for The Who was on a European tour. I remember clearly, however, and can produce witnesses, watching both bands in one night on the stage of Cincinnati's Music Hall in 1970. Rockyjocket (talk) 18:10, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

Spelling, punctuation, grammar and structure cleaned up. Some facts checked. Greenglen 19:33, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

The "Funk #49" link is not working properly.

(above unsigned comment apparently added on 1 August 2007‎)

OK, I edited the lead paragraph to provide a working link (using "Funk Number 49", as "#" can't be used in article title URLs). -- HLachman (talk) 08:27, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

The James Gang Was[edit]

It should be the James Gang were. I've seen this on many other pages. Someone is obviously confused since Americans say "Cream is" whereas the British say "Cream are". They need to learn that we say "Cream is" and "The Doobie Brothers are".

"Gang" is a singular noun. So let's stick with "was." -- HLachman (talk) 08:27, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

who the hell is Joe Zaucha?[edit]

Somebody added "Joe Zaucha" to this article on 1 September 2014‎, and I removed it. The same mysterious name had been added to the Glenn Schwartz article on 4 January 2012‎ (and removed 2 years later, on 4 January 2014‎). These two suspicious edits originated from IP addresses that are related. So it appears to be a case of vandalism. -- HLachman (talk) 08:27, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

Music gaming[edit]

I propose to remove the "music gaming" section and consolidate it with similar information already appearing in the James Gang Rides Again article, because that's the page with more specific info about Funk #49. -- HLachman (talk) 08:27, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
