Über The Outlaws
Long of hair and many of mustaches, the Outlaws were one of the many bands fighting the good fight for good ol' boy rock in the '70s. The Florida-based group added a dash of Eagles-style sheen to their heady brew and managed to squeak into the Top-40 in 1975 with "There Goes Another Love Song." Even armed with the occasional triple-lead guitar threat, the group were never able to make a distinctive dent in the more notable big-rigs of Southern Rock. This doesn't mean that the Outlaws were without their fans, for there are plenty who swear by Hughie Thomasson's down-home licks and many people claim that "you had to be there" for one of their live shows in the '70s. As it stands, their recorded legacy is one less of gritty immediacy and more of by-the-books twangy guitars and harmonies.
