I never played with Toy back in the 70s, but I watched him play quite a few times. I consider him to be an American original. It wasn't until a couple of weeks before he passed away that I actually sat down and spoke to him at length.
One night at an Atlanta nightclub, some guys from the ARS came in and wanted to play. The only extra guitar we had was a 70s Les Paul of mine that was strung with HEAVY strings for slide. Barry Bailey said that'd be no problem. I mean, these were MONSTER gauge strings - and Bailey just played it like there were super slinkies on there. I HATE that guy.
The ARS was the last great Southern band of the 70s. And after Hatchet, the genre died. Man, I hate the word 'genre'.
Uh-oh ... someone's gonna say that .38 Special was a Southern band. Yes, they were...but I consider that 'pop' not 'rock'. Geez...Carlisi's gonna KILL ME.
Just disregard whatever I say...I don't know $hit from $hinola.
shaw: I wonder if Zap is around.I found a guitar someone was throwing out and it has Zapp on the headstock. Turns out its one of those Law Suit era Les Pauls. I'm putting it back together it was only the body & neck, with no hardware but I got all the parts now.
