AUDIO: The Groundhogs' Tony McPhee (1997)

John Tobler, Rock's Backpages audio, 1997

McPhee takes us back to the early days, turning down a gig with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers when Clapton left; his various bands between Groundhogs #1 and reviving the band; the early albums: Scratching the Surface and Blues Obituary; breakthrough album Thank Christ for the Bomb; the mental issues behind Split; subsequent albums, the sacking of drummer Ken Pustelnik, and his path to the present day.
