Fooled Around And Fell In Love (4:35)

Cover of Struttin' My Stuff

From Struttin' My Stuff and 83 other releases

“Fooled Around and Fell in Love” was a single by blues guitarist Elvin Bishop. It appeared on his 1975 album Struttin’ My Stuff and was released as a single the following year. Bishop does not sing lead vocals on the track; feeling that his gravelly voice didn’t do the song justice, he invited vocalist Mickey Thomas who was a background singer in his band at the time, to sing it. Based on his work with Bishop, Thomas was invited to become the lead singer for Jefferson Starship.[1] The song peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in May 1976. [2] The record was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on June 23, 1976.[3]. T.G. Sheppard had a #21 country hit with a cover of the song in 1985.

    I like how every single song that was in Guardians had like a twenty-fold increase in listeners within the course of a couple of months.

    Versatile artist, very personable guy. Saw him a few years ago in Wlmsprt PA. Next he morning he walked into the continental breakfast at the hotel next door, grabbed his cheese danish, sat down and talked for half an hour, just like old friends
