Buzzy Linhart is a rock legend. And during the early 70's he was the Easty
Coast's hottest rock and roller, selling out at clubs and concert halls up and
down the coast. Buzzy's high energy two hour shows made him the Bruce
Springsteen of his day.
Buzzy co-wrote "You Gotta Have Friends" with his frequent piano player,
Buzzy started out as a vibes player in Greenwich Village back at the dawn of
the 60's, he played behind Tim Hardin and Fred Neil and recorded as a vibist
with Jimi Hendrix and Crosby, Stills and Nash. He made about six albums (not
including countless greatest hits and repackages of all sorts) for various
major labels in the late sixties and early seventies including Atlantic,
Mercury and Karma Sutra. Buzzy was a singing, songwriting, guitar playing solo
artist and a legendary live performer. He even filled Carnegie Hall at the
height of Buzzymania! Having his songs covered by Bette Midler, Barry Manilow and
Carly Simon, among others, his rep as a songwriter has always been a great
one. Buzzy's unique combination of jazz, folk and rock made him an innovator
and influence on many who came after him. His singing could go from rock to
blues to jazz scat in any 24 bars of a song! His songs were covered by people
like Bette Midler, Barry Manilow, Carly Simon, and the Roche Sisters
Buzzy sightings became legendary over the years. There would be many NYC
sightings, when Buzzy would show up at my house and music would be made and
songs would be written. Sometimes, we'd write songs and play gigs with bands.
Sometimes, we'd do radio shows.
Buzzy's last appearance in NYC four years ago, was his biggest - a big show at
the Bottom line four years ago that was a tribute to him with his sidekick,
Moogy Klingman and an array of famous names. - Phoebe Snow, John Hammond, John
Sebastion, Eric Anderson, David Amram and Will Lee, among others.
Moogy Klingman co-wrote "You got to have Friends" with Buzzy Linhart back in
the old daze. Moogy has had solo albums released on Capitol and EMI records
and recently on his internet CD label, MoogyMusic.com, featuring his music
new and old, (as well as collaboration with Buzzy Linhart).
Moogy was a founding member of Todd Rundgren's Utopia and recorded over a
dozen albums with Todd and Utopia in the seventies. Moogy has produced such
artists as Bette Midler and Bob Dylan. Moogy's songs have been recorded by Ms.
Midler, Carly Simon, Todd Rundgren and Utopia, Johny Winter Barry Manilow
among others. Moogy has been a recent fixture on the NY music club scene
playing gigs with the Moogy Klingman band. band.
Moogy has played, recorded and/or had his songs covered by many rock
legends, including Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, Luther Van Dross, Bob Dylan, Bo
Diddley, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Allan Woody and Warren Haynes from the Allman
Bros & Gov't Mule. Moogy has worked with great female rockers like Bette Midler,
Carly Simon, Cindy Lauper, Shawn Colvin, Irene Cara, and Thelma Houston.
Moogy wrote like "Dust in the Wind" which Todd Rundgren recorded on his
platinum album "Something, Anything" and Axel Rose & Guns & Roses does live in
concert (on their very occasional gigs).
He'll also be doing a song he co-wrote with Buzzy Linhart called, "You Gotta
Have Friends', which is Bette Midler's theme song.
Jim Satten on guitar is an blues/R & B guitar legend. He was Bo Diddley lead
guitarist and band leader for 14 years and lead the Ron Wood band (of the
Rolling Stones) on a world tour.
He and Moogy also played together in a band with Allmans Brothers alumni
Allan Woody, and Warren Haynes. Jim has played guitar for the original
Temptations, Ronnie Spector, and Sam and Dave, among many others.
