And yes, eventually Jann Wenner canned Bangs for being too harsh on Canned Heat and Led Zep and such. It's true, Bangs is a little too cool for school and reveres certain things like Mingus, Beefheart etc. He was into 60s garage and a lot of the proto-punk stuff (VU and Stooges of course). but he is a bit versatile. just read a nice piece on Astral Weeks by him last night.
