"I went to high school with Mike (lead guitar), Eddie (keyboards), and Stephe (drums). They began early on as a three-piece group with those three calling themselves "The Group". Eddie played the bass part on his Hammond B-3 organ. After switching from The Group to Whalefeathers, Lenny LeBlanc was picked up from the Florida area to play bass. He went on to do studio work in Macon, GA. Lenny, along with fellow musician Carr, went on to cut an album (LeBlanc & Carr) that included a top hit called "Falling" which was featured on an old TV program seen on Friday Nights, "Midnight Special". You Oldies, I'm sure, will remember. The other Mike was added later to create a group of five exceptional musicians that had the privilege of opening for groups such as Allman Bros., Edgar Winter, Grand Funk Railroad, Badfinger, and others. We found ourselves in the midst of the "festival" era which allowed them to play with groups such as Mountain, 10 Years After, Alice Cooper. Even though the guys were outstanding, good luck did not always follow them so the group finally gave it up. Too, too bad! If you get a chance to pick up their album, grab it. It will take you back to a time when we just sat around and drank in the music. It may put you in mind of a British group from the early 70's called Wishbone Ash. Enjoy!"

"I was surprised to see the Whalefeathers only album available on Amazon.com. That shows you how good Amazon.com is!Hailing from Cincinnati, this band was extremely popular locally in the late 60's. If you love music from bands like Moby Grape, Jefferson Airplane, and that whole Woodstock era, you'll love this one. It's ashame the Feathers didn't make it nationally---their straight forward brand of "acid" rock, crisp vocals, and soaring guitar riffs make them one the best, but unfortunately one of the most overlooked bands of this era.Check this one out---you'll be glad you did!"
