dave getz of big brother & the holding coDave Getz is the drummer for one of the most important bands of the Sixties' San Francisco music scene,  Big Brother and the Holding Company.  Their album, Cheap Thrills, recorded with Janis Joplin, stands as one of the finest examples of psychedelic rock, and still sounds fresh today.  Sony / Legacy has just issued Live at the Carousel Ballroom 1968, a vintage recording of the classic lineup, just a couple of months before their breakup.  The disc features ferocious performances, and is testament that Big Brother was a lot more than simply Joplin’s backup band.  In addition, Dave’s other group,  the Dave Getz Breakaway, have a new album out featuring an unreleased song that Getz co-wrote with Janis.
