Rock Island

Chicago’s Rock Isle were dynamic for a limited period during the past due ’60s and early ’70s, and presented vocalist B.J.Taylor, guitarist Mike Kennedy, keyboardist Bob “Cobb” Bussinger, bassist Tony Curcio, and drummers Frank Schallis and Ray Mancino. Versatile but directionless, the group flirted with from Nuggets-style garage area rock and roll to trippy psychedelia to bluesy hard rock and roll with proto-progressive tendencies — generally with derivative and significantly less than influenced results. This designed that their eponymous 1970 debut also became their last launch. Kennedy continued to an extended career as program man and, improbable as it might seem, some little early-’80s acknowledgement with New Influx of British ROCK band Horsepower.
