    Thanks. :)

    I always argued that the Isley Brothers were a very legit rock band in the tradition of Funkadelic, Mandrill and Fishbone. They practically paved the way for it. Again, no credit. It...

    Think the Miracles' first TV appearance was on "American Bandstand" in early 1961. Least that's what I read in one of the Motown books (the Posner one if I'm not mistaken).
