Mickey Thomas - one of my favorite rock vocalists of all time...

Mickey Thomas - his solo album, called As Long as you Love Me.  Hey - Nice track suit - Mick!  You know him best as the lead singer in the Jefferson Starship.  But his singing with Elvin Bishop's group in the seventies and more specifically, on one of the greatest songs of all time: Fooled Around and Fell in Love.  That song is a category buster.  It's almost in a modified 3/4 waltz time.   Slow slow - quick quick slow.   The structure is unique too, the bridge is extended allowing for un-rushed guitar layering, but the tempo comes across as bluesy.  I think most of us can related to the lyrics too.  Check out the the Starship doing a great version of this song from just last year.
