This pic just made the rounds on Facebook this werekend - Sweet fans protesting the removal of the Runaways from a concert bill, supposedly because Sweet didn't want to play with a bunch of girls!

Did you ever find confirmation of this? I looked for a while but couldn't prove it happened like this. Was it a Kim Fowley stunt? etc.

Was never a big fan though.

The post-Connolly albums are only for serious fans.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

I've been a fan for 47 years and even I don't really care for them that much
Certainly I am aware that they could be lots better than they are

Anyway, I have compiled the 17 Connoly-era A Sides, using these great sounding remasters, into a new comp for anyone who is interested and can't be arsed to wade through the not-really-that-great albums
It's currently residing in the usual Dropbox location.
