COMMANDER CODY& HIS LOST PLANET AIRMAN: LA STORIA DEL ROCK

Tra i personaggi di maggior  successo del country rock americano, George Frayne(1944, USA), in arte Commander Cody, nasce a Ann Arbor, Michigan, laureandosi all’Università del Michigan. Nel 1962 forma gli Amblers con JohnTichy, poi Fantastic Surfing Beavers con l’ingresso di Stephen Davis nel 1964. Nel1966, e negli anni successivi, lavora come bagnino alla J ones Beach di Long Island, e contemporaneamente suona con i Lorenzo Lightfoot, formazione dei locali  balneari. Agli inizi del 1967 nascono i Lost Planet Airnen, con Cody, Ralph Mallory, SteveSchwartz, Don Bolton (Marquis De Soul), John Tichy e Stephen Davis in arte The West Virginia Creeper. La musica  fra country, pop e soul. Intorno al 1968 la band si stabilizza, con Cody impiegato soltanto part:ime in quanto insegnante di scultura all’Oshkosh College nel Wisconsin. Alla fine del 1968 gli Airmen si separano per breve tempo: Bill Kirchen suona con gli High Country, poi forma gli Ozone e ritorna infine con Cody l’anno dopo, ormai parte integrante del gruppo, che rimarrà inalterato per gran parte dei ’70. I primi concerti europei del 1973 sono ricambiati con un buon successo di pubblico, grazie anche al buon secondo album, HOTLICKS COLD STEEL AND TRUCKERS FAVORITES, e all’ eccellente LIVE FROM DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS, registrato all’ Armadillo di Austin, Texas Poi la band si scioglie e si disperde quindi in progetti paralleli: la Billy C. Farlow Band e soprattutto i Moonlighters, per gran parte  formati dagli Airmen. Col tempo i due gruppi assumeranno propria identità discografica pur restando sempre al fianco di Cody.  Farlow, poi  augura una carriera solista con l’italiana Appaloosa, per la quale escono GULF COMST BLUES e I AIN’T EVER HAD TOO MUCH.
