Commander Cody Photo Gallery

Posted By on Fri, Feb 16, 2007 at 3:02 PM

Back in the early '70s, Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen basically invented hippie-redneck rock (what squares call "insurgent country"). We're talking a smoking mix of country, rock-and-roll, boogie woogie, and A LOT of silly weed references ("Seeds and Stems Again Blues"). Of course, Willie Nelson should be credited here as well. But he was still playing the Nashville game when the Commander would jam all up and down the West Coast with New Riders of the Purple Sage and members of the Dead. And believe it or not, he sounds better than ever, proving it at the Winchester on February 9. A total party. See Walter Novak: Action Rock Photographer's latest photo gallery of the show. -- Justin Farrar
