The 1970s were a magical time if you were a kid in a Rock-n-Roll band in New York City. There was a scene, a big music scene with clubs downtown, midtown, uptown and out of town. There was so much music being made by young bands that was fresh--a Renaissance, if you will, of new ideas-- taking rock-n-roll to the next level.
Rags was in the middle of these exciting times with their raw, straight-ahead brand of rock-n-roll.
Disciples of the many British Bands, and proud of it, Rags always mixed those influences in their songs. Driving up-tempo numbers and pop rock-n-roll tunes is what Rags did best.
