Dr Hook And The Medicine Show

I remember when I first heard Dr Hook on the radio, when I was a teen. I immediately thought that they were very entertaining, and that they were definitely Stoners, but don't quote me on this, because regardless of how cool and fun they were, when they got together and sang for an audience, that doesn't necessarily mean that they were smoking a joint, before they got up on the stage, to perform their songs.
I am including two videos because I was torn between two of their songs, which I thought were really cool sounding.
The first video is 'Cover of the Rolling Stone', and the second video is 'Sylvia's Mother'. Enjoy.

Were you a fan of this band? If so, What is your favorite song, or songs?

Stand Tall

I remember when I first heard this song on the radio. I thought that it was one of Burton Cumming's best songs. It is a powerful ballad type song, which is apparently about a failed relationship. What the song seems to be saying, is that it is better to stand tall than to fall into some kind of violent state, over a failed relationship.

Were you a fan of the Guess Who band?
