Bio
born in Illinois. 5 year Navy veteran. Married for 26 years (not counting the first five when we just cohabited. 4 kids, 6 grandkids, 3 brothers 2 living, 2 sisters 1 living, a mother living, a father not living. 1 dog a labradoodle, and a current cat population of 2/6 (If you count feral kittens ) I've done a lot of jobs in my life, from shill at a carnival burlesque show to making medium caliber ammunition. I built inkjet printers, embedded computer boards, restored and repaired both cars, motorcycles and electronics. I read, write, and do arithmetic (albeit poorly) My wife claims that I have more useless knowledge than anyone on earth and resultingly no one will play trivial pursuit with me anymore. I do play pinohcle but due to my inability to cheat I don't win very often. Recently disabled I turned to Open Salon to re-engage my writing bug. Update add one cocker spaniel to the list and maybe just shoot me.

Okay, I know that it isn't possible for me to have been the only one who remembered this.  It did make the Top Forty.

Nope, you're not!!
Are you kidding. I've smoked enough Dobbies and listened to this song and album enough to fill a railroad car!:-)
Couldn't see the video, prob because I'm using an iPad. May I have a hint, please? :-)
The answer to what?

Janie, the last birth year for the boomers was 1964. So the first boomers gave birth to the last boomers. Weird.
Thanks, never heard these guys. I'm a sheltered boomer though. LOL
Were they a Western or Eastern group? Lived the entire late sixties in SF and thought I had heard every band. Recognize the name but not the music.
I listened to every note and could not remember it.:)
HUGGGGGGGGGGGG
Buffy, How did I know

Scanner, K1948, Con wrote a piece on Willie Dixon and mentioned several covers of this tune but didn't mention this one. Foghat was a power group in the late seventies and I personally heard this tune on rock radio in San Diego and in Virginia Beach so I don't know if they were east or west.

Holly, it all depends on when you were born, if you are over fifty then yes you are a tail end boomer.

CCD, Foghat's cover of Willie Dixon's "I Just Wanna Make Love To You".

Linda, Maybe they never made it that far North, but, I do know Triumph
Thanks, Bobbot. A quick reminder of a time when it was possible to feel invincible and in control of life.
