Rock Band… Or Law Firm?

Hagar Schon Aaronson Shrieve. This early 80's supergroup was led by Bay Area stalwarts Sammy Hagar and Neil Schon, of Journey. They released one album (which was recorded live, but mixed to sound like a studio project) and scored a moderate hit with their cover of "Whiter Shade of Pale."

HSAS takes top honors in our survey (which is sponsored by the good people at Mutual of Omaha). Their name is so blue-chip Park Avenue firm that when I bought their album, I half-expected to find a "cease and desist" letter where the vinyl should have been.

Emerson Lake & Palmer. Progressive-rock superstars, ELP recorded works by simple folk like Béla Bartók and Sergei Prokofiev. Their raison d'etre? Classical music just wasn't loud enough.

Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds. These west coast soft-rockers scored hits with "Don't Pull Your Love," and "Fallin' in Love".

Wilson Philllips. Scions of legendary El Lay rockers Brian Wilson and John Phillips, these California girls hit the charts in 1990 with "Hold On." Their name sounds like an old-line London law firm, the kind with mahogany walls and cigar stains on the ceiling.

Anderson Bruford Wakeman & Howe. These friends used to play in a band with a simple name (Yes), until they got together and formed a law firm. Er... rock band. Sadly, their music wasn't much more exciting than reading through a tall stack of property contracts.

Extra Credit: OK, peoples, who did I miss? Martin, Medeski & Wood? Nah, they're too jazzy to be on this list. C'mon, help a brother out!

First I gotta comment on that sci-fi fantasy wacked out LP cover by the last law-firm-turned-rock-band. Wowza! It's a dead ringer for the cover of any Dune novel. Should I mention the obvious Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young (who was later disbarred)? Or are they too well known?

It seems a lot more and much more, older males from the late 20s
for the mid 40s are getting involved with females ranging from 16-20.
Just within a general social observation, each the girls and males
look to want these types of interactions, and it typically finishes within a quick time and it
is emotionally damaging.

Why females usually say that cock dimension does not issue when u appear at males searching for males or m4m

they handle the pain much better once i give it to them
in the rear end than once i give fellas? the m4m page is beneath casual encounters if u wanna
try it out.

The notion of public training is strategically flawed.
This online video accidentally admits as a lot when contrasting the vast progress
of privately developed technology using the embarrassing lack
of progress in public colleges. No vast improvement will take place until we the consumer
of education have the choice of where to spend our income.
School choice is the proper technique.. Technique without
tactics may be the slowest route to victory.
Tactics with no approach may be the? noise just before defeat.
