I was very enthusiastic about the ep and Spring Session M. Their last two albums were definitely weaker though. Bozzio made a big mistake of not playing live drums on the second full length album (can't remember much about the 3rd one). He programmed the drums for that. I remember TB saying he wasn't worried about programming the drums because he knew he could play it. You're one of the greatest drummers in the world and you don't play a lick? Bad idea.

ha, funny stuff. I just tried a bit of MP via youtube, didn't last long. I don't have the patience to tune out the vocals and focus on the synth & drums, which sounded alright, I guess.

If you can find it, there is a film called "Lunch Wagon", which is essentially a soft-core porn film, that features Missing Persons. If memory serves, they are billed as U.S.Drag.

The first album was pretty wild...actual musicians playing that New Wave stuff...there WERE notes involved with it! The second album was just electronic fluff! The third really blew...

I remember reading an interview with Frank when Terry was scouting for a deal, and showed up in New Wave garb.....Frank said something like "Wait a minute you used to dress in a leather jockstrap with chains through your nipples, and now you're wearing this"?

Haven't pulled that disc out in YEARS, though...I might have to for a laugh!

Thank you, most FZ fans bought 'Spring SessionM' because of Dale and Terry. It was a good record.

Ok, tossed it on my iPod to listen to at the gym...Actually stood up pretty well for this day and age MUSIC-wise...Change the kitschy vocals out and it's a decent album! Real musicians playing what a lot of sequencers do anymore!

Had to re-listen to U.S. Drag on my car stereo, it's got a cool beat! (that you can't dance to) :smoke:

September 23rd Missing Persons with Diane & The Deductibles at House of Blues Anaheim

Long time friends together again at the HOB Anaheim's Intimate New Parish Room


Sep. 19, 2017 / PRZen / ANAHEIM, Calif. -- (HUNTINGTON BEACH) Diane & The Deductibles are excited to team up again with their good friends Missing Persons for a live performance opening the show at the intimate NEW Parish Room at "The House of Blues" Anaheim, Sept 23rd, 2017. Tickets are General Admission.

Dale Bozzio is an American rock and pop vocalist best known as co-founder and lead singer of the '80s new wave band Missing Persons and also known for her work with Frank Zappa. The 'decade of decadence' is an enduring music genre and Dale and the band have been wowing audiences on tour.

Missing Persons' current line-up includes Dale Bozzio (original lead vocalist/founder/songwriter), legendary bassist Prescott Niles (The Knack), Fred Bensi (keyboards/synthesizers), Karl D'Amico (guitar) and Andy Sanesi (drums). They bring the audience to their feet playing many of their Billboard chart toppers like "Words", "Destination Unknown", "Walking in LA" and other fan favorites.

Diane & The Deductibles are set to open the show, warming the crowd up with rich vocals by Diane Adams that are backed by a long line of rock royalty found within their band. Members include legendary guitarist Robert Sarzo (Hurricane, Queensryche, A Salute to Santana), bassist Cliff Rehrig (Air Supply), guitarist Keith Lynch (Bill Ward of Black Sabbath) and drummer Ronnie Ciago (Gene Simmons, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow).

Diane Adams is a long-time Huntington Beach resident and small business owner of more than 25 years. Also a dedicated and active community patron, Adams was part of the group that did the build out for the beautiful Huntington Beach Library. It was this venue where she found the perfect home to bring together her place in music history as a singer and rhythm guitarist during the glory days on Sunset Strip in the 70s and her dedication to keeping music alive. She launched her highly successful Rock 'N Blues Concert Series, hosted by Diane & The Deductibles, featuring a wide swath of acts in the rock and blues genres. The Missing Persons Shows are among the most popular, with sold out shows in 2016 and 2017.

The series has been on hiatus as Diane & The Deductibles gear up to head into Studio A at Orange County's Hybrid Studios with veteran producer Hank Linderman, the go-to producer/engineer and multi-instrumentalist for The Eagles, Don Henley, Keb Mo, Chicago, America, Robert Lamm, Van Dyke Parks, Stan Lynch and many more.

I enjoyed reading about your perspective on these fine American artists, Cal. Thanks. I like Boys Of Summer as well. I think maybe it's because Mike Campbell wrote the music and played the guitar. But Henley's a good singer and has some good lyrics. I must admit I also like Disco Strangler and In The City. I like Joe Walsh. Life In The Fast Lane was probably good the first 50 times I heard it. I can't remember.

Right. But they didn't write it.

I have yet to seek out the original.

I recently found a clean used LP of Spring Session M for like $3. I was pleasantly surprised by it. The drums sound real as do the other instruments, and they're well crafted pop songs. I don't want to hear what followed the first album knowing the drum sound turned to total cheese and were programmed. I never paid any attention to MP back in the day, might have seen a video or two on MTV in the early '80s. Obviously didn't know the Zappa connection.
