1981: Marshall Tucker Conquers New York, Video Blog

Posted: Jan 15, 2008

In 1981 The Marshall Tucker Band played Madison Square Garden in New York City. While they were in the Big Apple, they appeared on several radio and TV shows promoting the album Dedicated, a recording they dedicated to founding band member Tommy Caldwell who died in 1980 following a Jeep accident at home in Spartanburg, SC.

The band appeared on the Saturday Night Live inspired late night show Fridays, as well as several other talk shows, including Tom Snyder's Tomorrow Show.

The boys were having a lot of fun in New York, and their performance on Tomorrow was top drawer as was Snyder's interview with Toy Caldwell, George McCorkle and Paul Riddle. That interview was recently posted to You Tube, capturing a truly special moment in Southern Rock history.

Check it out below.

Keep it Real. Keep it Southern.

I've still got this on VHS,along with the Fridays' performances. Jerry Eubanks asked for a copy,even offering to pay for the DVD transfer, but I never got around to it. Buffalo,you might want to check with Jerry and see if he still wants this. Listenin' to the Winters Bros. in Nashville-Mike Z.

I remember watching this on TV back in '81. Didn't think nothing of it at the time when Tom said "Just make certain that they remember you when you're gone", but that sure takes on a whole new meaning now, don't it? I know that Tommy, Toy and George will forever be alive in our memories. Great interview, thanks a bunch for posting that, Buff....
