ConfusedConfusedConfused...I have absolutely NO IDEA why this song got stuck in my head...I was never, ever a UH / Deep Purple fan and yet this song is stuck in my head after a brief lunch siesta (lunch was a few spicy Jamaican meat pies and a cup of black coffee...maybe this has something to do with it...)

^  Love that song!
 
A friend's little bro named his dog "Uriah" after the band back then.  He's dead now.  The dog, that is.  Now that I think of it, so is the little bro.

ConfusedI KNOW! As much as I was never a fan, I also haven't thought of and probably haven't heard this song in at least 20 years, if not longer. What is really odd is that I knew the name of the song and the group the moment I woke up (I never bought that album)...and, well, I have listened to it - enjoyed it - maybe 3 times today. Maybe it means our conscious selves survive death and invade the old & weak and some of my old friends are coming back at me...I'll know if this is true if I grow my hair to my ass, get a tattoo of Mickey Rat, or maybe some Von Dutch art on my arm or beer belly, and pick up some new recreational habits/vices that are totally legal up at The Den....

My best friend in high school was a big Uriah Heep fan.

We saw them in concert twice back around '73 & '74. The first time the opening act was John Baldry. I can't remember who the opening act was the second time, but the lead guitarist had a broken wrist and was playing with a cast on it.

Mick Box broken wrist





They played Easy Living, both times, of course. And The Wizard.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

I think the one thing that always worked against them (according to me, only) was the name of their band.
'Uriah Heep'
Sounds like a nasty disease that attacks nice, hot & ready to show, but not yet delivered fecal matter.

But actually....

Uriah Heep is a fictional character created by Charles Dickens in his novel David Copperfield. Heep is one of the main antagonists of the novel. His character is notable for his cloying humility, obsequiousness, and insincerity, making frequent references to his own "'umbleness". His name has become synonymous with sycophancy.

Copperfield first meets the 15-year-old Heep when he comes to live with Mr Wickfield and his daughter Agnes, in chapter 15:

[Heep's face] was quite as cadaverous as it had looked in the window, though in the grain of it there was that tinge of red which is sometimes to be observed in the skins of red-haired people. It belonged to a red-haired person—a youth of fifteen, as I take it now, but looking much older—whose hair was cropped as close as the closest stubble; who had hardly any eyebrows, and no eyelashes, and eyes of a red-brown, so unsheltered and unshaded, that I remember wondering how he went to sleep. He was high-shouldered and bony; dressed in decent black, with a white wisp of a neckcloth; buttoned up to the throat; and had a long, lank, skeleton hand, which particularly attracted my attention, as he stood at the pony's head, rubbing his chin with it, and looking up at us in the chaise.

Illustration by Fred Barnard as it originally appeared in Dickens' novel:

As you can probably tell, I either didn't read 'David Copperfield' or it was too many brain cells ago - but the moment you brought it up, I remembered KNOWING that...so, well, maybe it was 'too many brain cells ago'...and get that active 'The More You Know' sh*t outta my face! I don't want to have an epileptic seizure before breakfast. dammitnow!!!!AngryWink
