Corky Laing’s Mountain performs the classic Mountain repertoire (Mississippi Queen, Nantucket Sleighride, Never in My Life) with unparalleled enthusiasm and energy, as it was originally recorded. The show will remind veteran audience members of the brilliant Mountain shows throughout the 70s.
With living legend Corky Laing on drums and vocals, joined by guitarist Richie Scarlet (“The Emperor of Rock ‘n’ Roll”; Ace Frehley’s Comet), and multi-instrumentalist Mark Mikel (The Pillbugs, Alan Parsons) on bass, keyboards, and vocals.
Mountain Climbing! was released in March 1970. 50 years later, the unmistakable cowbell intro still leads to the killer guitar lick, that still makes the ultimate rock classic; Mississippi Queen.
The 50th anniversary of that Mississippi cowbell will accompany the release of a new recording, Toledo Sessions, Half a century after his first MOUNTAIN rehearsals, Corky Laing released his first studio album in decades, written and recorded in Toledo, Ohio, with Mark Mikel and award-winning blues guitarist, Chris Shutters.
Corky’s autobiography, Letters to Sarah is written in the exceptionally honest and endearing voice of Laing, chronicling life's ups and downs with excerpts from dozens of letters written to his mother, Sarah, between 1963 and 1997. She had saved them all.
