The Stooges are an American rock band that was first active from about 1967 to 1974, and then reformed in 2003.
The Stooges sold rather few records in their original existence and often performed for indifferent or hostile audiences. Nevertheless, The Stooges are often regarded as hugely influential both on the nascent heavy metal and punk rock. Singer Iggy Pop and his wild onstage antics were often the focus of attention.

Neil Percival Young is a Canadian singer-songwriter, guitarist, and film director.
His work is characterized by deeply personal lyrics, distinctive guitar work, and an instantly recognizable nasal tenor (and frequently alto) singing voice. Although he accompanies himself on several different instruments—including piano and harmonica—his style of hammer-on acoustic guitar and often idiosyncratic soloing on electric guitar are the lynchpins of a sometimes ragged, sometimes polished, yet consistently evocative sound. Although Young has experimented widely with differing music styles, including swing, jazz, rockabilly, blues, and electronica throughout a varied career, his best known work usually falls into either of two distinct styles: folk-esque acoustic rock (as heard in songs such as "Heart of Gold", "Harvest Moon" and "Old Man") and hard rock, in songs like "Cinnamon Girl", "Rockin' in the Free World" and "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)". In more recent years, Young has started to adopt elements from newer styles of music, such as industrial and grunge, the latter of which was profoundly influenced by his own style of playing, often bringing him the title of "the godfather of grunge."
Young has directed (or co-directed) a number of films using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey, including Journey Through the Past (1973), Rust Never Sleeps (1979), Human Highway (1982), and Greendale (2003).
He is also an outspoken advocate for environmental issues and small farmers, having co-founded the benefit concert Farm Aid, and in 1986 helped found The Bridge School, and its annual supporting Bridge School Benefit concerts, together with his wife Pegi.

Blodwyn Pig were a British rock group founded by Mick Abrahams after he left Jethro Tull in 1968. (Abrahams had a major falling out with Tull leader Ian Anderson.) Blodwyn Pig consisted of Abrahams (guitar and vocals), Jack Lancaster (saxophone), Andy Pyle (bass guitar), and Ron Berg (drums).
The band recorded two albums, Ahead Rings Out in 1969 and Getting To This in 1970. Both reached the lower half of the British top ten. On the first album they played a heavy blues-rock rooted in the British 60's r'n'b scene from which sprang groups like the Yardbirds, Free and eventually Led Zeppelin, but Blodwyn Pig had a different twist on the genre thanks to Lancaster's sax being so prominent in the mix which led them to more creative sixties underground jazz-influenced music on the second. The single Summer Day from Ahead... failed to chart.

Just wanted to thank you for this share- I've always been a fan of Tull so I thought I'd check out Blodwyn Pig; didn't really expect much.
Wow, was just blown away by the energy unleashed!
