Originally named "The Runaways" they changed the name to the “Flood” and lived on Saint Simons Island and Atlanta, where they signed with GRC (General Recording Corp)
They played at the 2nd Atlanta Pop Festival in Byron and then Piedmont and Chastain Parks in Atlanta with the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd . We went to the Love Valley, NC festival and played with the Brothers there and lived there with Dickey Betts quite a while before finally coming back to Atlanta.
More stuff on the Flood, a Battle of the Bands, the "Be In" Festivals at Jekyll Island and Great Speckled Bird and Chastain Park coming soon!
Many thanks to Bob Herrin for the great info, pictures, clippings and CD cover!
