STEPPENWOLF, JOHN KAY – “SNOWBLIND FRIEND”

 

Even though “Snowblind Friend” is undoubtedly about cocaine rather than snow, it still promotes the kind of vibe you might feel in looking out the window today in Colorado Springs.

I heard of Steppenwolf when I literally judged them by their appearance and bought this hilariously 70s-looking record Steppenwolf 7 from Independent Records my freshman year at Colorado College. When my mom first came to visit my dorm room in Slocum and saw it on the wall, she groooooaned. Steppenwolf is one of the many bands that makes her cringe and think of her and her brothers in high school. I loved that.
