Who Remembers Minneapolis Band “Crow”? They’re Back
When i was a young punk teenager, I used to go see a band called South 40 at the Fargo Coliseum. I always looked forward to seeing these guys. They were a great band. This band formed in 1967 and played until 1972. the band was made up of singer David Wagner, guitarist Dick Wiegand, bassist Larry Wiegand and drummer Harry Nehls.
In 1969 they recorded a demo for Columbia Records and they passed. Denny Craswell replaced Nehls on drums (Pete Best Syndrome). They were signed to Amaret Records and the band went national, changing their name to Crow.
Their big hit was "Evil Woman (Don't Play Your Games with Me)".which was later covered by Black Sabbath. How cool is that? I always wondered what happened to this band and then I heard they will be playing at Moondance this Summer.
There are a lot of great bands playing Moondance this year and I'm just as pumped to see Crow as all the other acts. Hope to see you there.
