"Sickness & Death" by Scott Thomas Lowe & Atascadero...

...which was the first band I was in, way back in 1978.

When we would play live (mostly around the Los Angeles area), I would be seated at a table in the club, and when the lead guitar solo started, I would leap up on the stage, grab the vocal mic and start ranting and raving about nuclear war, pollution, overdosing on drugs - whatever I felt like in the moment. Eventually the audience understood it was all part of the show.

I thought it would make a good "pandemic song," so here it is:

Sickness & Death - recorded in 1979 (link to mp3)

Also, here's a flyer for a live show in Hollywood back in '78.



I'm on the far left, Dewey Martin (Buffalo Springfield drummer and Atascadero's first drummer) is 6th from the left, striking a goofy pose, and Scott, the songwriter and lead singer, is 2nd from the right, behind me.
