    I wouldn't say nobody has heard of Buck Dharma.. BOC was pretty popular during their day and they toured like mad. I always remember Buck breaking his guitar in the middle of the Heavy Metal Head video (Blotto)..
    Not like they didn't have at least three massive hits that everyone knows as well as being the inspiration for this:

    I got all the PF CDs, well missing some of the newer ones. Pre DSotM is crap. It is a miracle those guys were even allowed to make DSotM. That said Avvie is correct Animals and Wish You Were Here are the best.

    Of those two Dogs and Wish You Were Here - WOW I really can't listen too those albums or those songs too much. WYWH - the song is like 6 mins long and it seems like 30 seconds too me. Dogs is like 15 mins, I don't think the lyrics start till like 6 mins into it, and it seems like 30 seconds too me as well. Heck I even love the live versions that go on for twice the time of the studio cuts.

    DSotM is PF for Dummies - lol

    Obviously you, being a musician, have heard of him. Your musician friends as well. When my non-musician friends talk guitar and they get beyond EVH they talk about Satranti and - god help us Clapton - I get a total blank stare when I mention Dharma/Roeser. I mention Godzilla and Don't Fear the Reaper and they know the songs. Cities On Flame - as close as anyone gets to EVH IMO

    I can tolerate PF in small doses and I can appreciate their contributions to Rock but I was always more of a Bowie/Alice Cooper/Queen guy from those days. Mick Ronson and Brian May were my favorite 70's guitarists. The EVH guys don't hold much respect for those guys either..

    Speaking of which, did you hear EVH totally get his azz handed to him by Brian May on the Starfleet Project?

    No but I have some unmixed Queen sessions from the A Night at the Opera period and May's tracks are just blistering. Tone for days....

    I would not call it lack of respect as much as the music was, again I am just a listener not a player, vocal driven. Sure the musicians were probably great, whoever did the guitar work for Debrah Harry on Rapture was certainly talented - but he was backing Blondie. VH is EVH and IMO Blue Oyster Cult is Buck Dharma, but I am just one guy with a bunch of vinyl and CDs. I am certain Satratini is technically better than Dharma, but I don't like his stuff - preprogrammed electronic speed rock - lol

    Groups like Steely Dan employed the best musicians available and their stuff reflects it, but those guys just accent the songs. As an aside Can't Buy A Thrill is one great song followed by another great song for all 10 tracks. Almost impossible to surpass debut album there. IMO SD never did surpass CBAT, but man they put out a string of awsome albums.
