Leren kennen via the 13th floor elevators. Wat basis informatie over deze psychedelische band uit de jaren 60.

quote:
The Moving Sidewalks was a 1960s psychedelic blues-rock band, most notable for giving future ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons his start in the music business. The group members were Billy Gibbons on guitar, ken johnson(wich lives in bartlesville OK,and have a son named john johnson who also is a bass player.) on bass, Dan Mitchell on drums and Tom Moore on keyboards.

Gibbons founded the Texas psychedelic group in the mid-1960s and quickly drew a large following, especially in the Houston "Teen Scene". They recorded several singles and one full-length album, Flash. Their single "99th Floor" was a hit and topped the charts at #1 in Houston for six weeks. The success of this record led the Sidewalks to sign with Wand Records which then released "Need Me" which also became a Top 10 Hit. The group was asked to open for many legendary rock tours, including Jimi Hendrix and The Doors.

After Tom Moore and Don Summers were drafted into the U.S. Army, Billy Gibbons and Dan Mitchell added Lanier Greig and formed the original ZZ Top. They recorded the first ZZ Top record "Salt Lick" which was released on London Records.

The Moving Sidewalks opened for the legendary Texas psychedelic group 13th Floor Elevators at the San Antonio Texas psychedelic venue Love Street Emporium located on Commerce Street on the edge of downtown San Antonio. The Elevators set was stopped after only a few songs by the San Antonio police department who arrested the band's lead singer Roky Erickson.
