The classic all original line-up, left to right; Jakson Spires, Rickey Medlocke , Charlie Hargrett, and Greg T. Walker
Rickey Medlocke / Greg T. Walker / Charlie Hargrett / Jakson Spires
Bobby Barth and Christoph Ullmann
Bobby Barth joined Blackfoot in 2004, as the Lead Singer/Guitarist, until his departure in 2010, he maintains a website at; "http://bobbybarth.com". I can understand line up changes, but this is BULL$hit!
Christoph Ullmann joined Blackfoot on drums, after original drummer Jakson Spires passed away suddenly in 2006.
Somehow, for 2012, through what must have been some kind of back stabbing "legal" maneuver,
NO ORIGINAL MEMBERS
are currently IN the band, as Rickey Medlocke is promoting "fraudulant replacements", as Blackfoot!
[Rickey Medlocke even replaced himself!]
Philip Shouse, Sean Chambers, Jeff Shields
- lead vocals, guitar
- guitar, vocals
Brian Carpenter, John Lee
- bass, vocals
Christopher Williams, Matt Anastasi, Pierson Whicker, Wesley James Mitzelfield
- drums, vocals
The REAL official Blackfoot Web site [www.blackfootrocks.com] is gone!
Wikipedia seems to cover Blackfoot quite well at; "Blackfoot[band]"
You can read a "Commentary" by Radio 96.1FM[Tyler TX], on the Current Blackfoot band, and their "Situation", entitled;
"Why the new Blackfoot band is CRAP, and how a Great Band went Sour."
Here is an awesome interview with Greg T. Walker [in 4 parts] from 2011;
For a "Time" the remaining ORIGINAL members[minus TRAITOR MEDLOCKE], had reunited, forming the most EXCELLENT, [and "Ironicily Named"] band;
FIRED GUNS in ACTION!
Greg T. Walker is currently involved with a "New" project,
and their music is SUPERB!
I can understand line up changes, but this is BULL$hit!
If you are interested, you could go to the Web Site of the current "Official" Blackfoot Band; http://blackfootband.com
[Official, with NO ORIGINAL MEMBERS? What a concept!]
I'll pass, I'm sticking to MY memories of the REAL THING, thank you very much!
