Foghat-british group-huge in the States, unknown in Britain
UFO were big in the States before they were in England
and really early UFO were big in Japan when no one else appeared to give a damn

I remember reading reports of a bill playing some midwest enormodome comprising of headliners Nazereth, 2nd on the bill UFO and lowly 3rd raters Thin Lizzy and thinking ''Americans must be mad'' not realising that in 76 a black Irishman singing cowboy songs was probably not such a hit in Salt Lake City as it was to a young English lad

probably because that style of hard rock was pretty much an anathema to the style obsessed Brit Music press who even pre punk dismissed anything that seemed even slightly tainted by metal

England as it has been pointed out never really went a bundle on Grand Funk, Ted Nugent, Aerosmith et al probably because we already had the Quo, and what more do you need.
