Man I wish...he had some unreal costumes. Satiny with huge shoulders and million inch platform shoes. Funky.

It was 1978 I think (maybe 1979) and it was at the Salt Palace in Utah. Looking for exact dates on the interweb but cannot find. Was indeed quite an entry into the world of arena shows. The word from backstage was that Lionel (whom I love) was a bit snooty and wouldn't talk to the opening act! The rest of the band were cool though.

His name is Randy Scott. He had several bands but my favorite was Platinum Plus. Full 70's funky shiny costumes and giant afro wigs. 8-10-ish players with full horn section and dad on drums and vocals. He was a boss.

Thanks for the suggestion and for taking the time to connect.
