Can someone recommend a good dentist for these guys?

Yes, try Dr. Dr. Paine, or Dr. Hertz, both graduated from Colgate.

Spooky Tooth rock!! First act to introduce twin keyboard approach, influenced Judas Priest, good music, Firebrick says yes.

Why not? Very interesting music.

Another great band, gotta love twin keyboards
great songs:

"That Was Only Yesterday"
"Waiting For the Wind"
"Better by You, Better Than Me"

Yes Lockloney, who could forget abou the infamous Iron Maiden version of "Better by You, Better than Me." Also, I believe Gary Wright had a massive solo hit sometime in the 70's with "Dream Weaver."

Actually it was Judas Priest who covered "Better by You, Better than Me" and there were no subliminal messages in it.

Spooky Tooth was not the first band to have the twin keyboard approach. That honor belongs to Procol Harum. Gary Brooker played piano in addition to lead vocals, while Matthew Fisher played the orgen. Procol Harum's first album came out a year before Spooky Tooth's debut album. Bo Brooker and Fisher beat Harrison and Wright by one year.

Thanks for the correction Dude Man, I don't know what I was thinking

No problem Keebord.

Good to see all this serious discussion about Spooky Tooth. I love the group personally although I have to point out that no one had yet mentioned their song "Feelin' Bad." which is good just like "That Was Only Yesterday," "Waiting For the Wind" or any other aforementioned songs. Oh yeah, "Evil Woman" is a great track too

Cubix...remember "Better By You, Better Than Me"? I hadn't thought about Spooky Tooth for a while!!

Posted by Gitarzan on Tuesday, 06.9.09 @ 19:50pm

The song "How" is also one of my favorites

Posted by Cubix on Tuesday, 06.9.09 @ 20:00pm

Luther Grosvenor was with Mott the Hoople after Spooky Tooth, and Gary Wright had a couple of hits with "My Love Is Alive" and "Dream Weaver".

I'm freaked out a little that there's a Spooky Tooth page on this site. Dam, this thing is comprehensive beyond belief.

Really, you've gotta be commenting on Deep Purple to even find this page. And cripes, Koko Taylor's name is on the left sidebar too. Is she really not in yet? That's crazy, and I'm serious - no irony or any weird internet crap #kokotaylor_kicks_arse.

Which letter is Springsteen's band named after?
