What a Night for an Interview – Steve Boone of The Lovin’ Spoonful

Did you ever have to make up your mind?

That wasn’t meant as a question…it was my way of cleverly introducing this post.

Baby-boomers and rock-and-roll fans of all ages probably sang the words while they read them…or they’re humming the tune right now (and probably will be for the next few hours).

Most of you know who sang them back in 1966, or you used to know, but the band’s name is on the tip of your tongue.

For the record…it was The Lovin’ Spoonful.

The Spoonful had a pretty impressive run between ’65 and ’68 which included seven Top 10 hits and another seven in the Top 100.

You might say they were hotter than a match head

They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000

Like many bands they also had their trials and tribulations…

Tomorrow night (Friday October 31, 2014) on my radio program I will have the bass player from the Spoonful – Steve Boone – live in the studio with me.

  1. Reblogged this on Libbie the Lobster and commented:
    Remember the Lovin’ Spoonful? My new author friend Steve Boone was in that band. He wrote a book about the experience. Read on for more about him and his book.

  2. Working in “the business” in the 60’s – 70’s was a real hoot. Met many recording artists, often carte blanche entrance into venues like Café Au Go Go with the wave of a producer’s card. Had the pleasure of being in an office with producer Tom Wilson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Wilson_(record_producer). We spun 45 rpm records during coffee breaks. Just an amazing time. I memorialized a short “coming of age” piece and my days at MGM records on my blog http://tovahsez.wordpress.com/category/uncategorized/page/2/

  5. I grew up listening to this music – it’s great! 😀 Best of luck with the interview.

  6. I only had to read the title of that song and I was humming and remembering those lyrics.
