This was a band formed by Barry Goldberg (later to join Electric Flag), around 1965. After some lineup changes, John Siomos joined (probably around 1966). This was the most possible lineup (although I'm not completely sure):
I once read that John played in this band, but I don't find info. Any additional help would be appreciated.
Mitch Ryder is a mythical singer, with a powerful band, The Detroit Wheels. As I've told, John Siomos played in his band, but I haven't been able to find proper info (years, lineup, etc.). He replaced another fantastic drummer, mighty Johnny Badanjek. Another player in the band at that time was guitarist Doug Rodriguez.
Again, any additional help would be appreciated.
This band was formed by Buzzy Linhart, full of great players (I've always loved the style of the late Doug Rauch):
Soon after, John joined Moogy in a new band.
Buzzy Linhart loves you: classic recordings
is a interesting compilation, taken from 3 different albums (Music
being one of them). It also features other great players, such as Jeff
'Skunk' Baxter (guitar), Danny Trifan (bass), Bill Takas (bass), Luther
A great lineup:
Moogy II features the same band, plus great players: Rick Derringer (guitar), David Spinozza (guitar), Jan Hammer (keyboards), Todd Rundgren (keyboards), Murray Weinstock (keyboards), David Earl Johnson (percussion), Randy Brecker (trumpet), Pete Ponzel (sax), Kevin Ellman (drums), Mark Rosengarden (drums).
Old times, good times is a compilation released in 1999, comprising the whole Moogy II album, plus unreleased tracks. Additional musicians include Jeff Sigman (guitar), John Miller (bass), John Wilcox (drums), Richard Cooks (drums), Richard Corey (violin), etc.
The first recordings, 1970-1972 is another compilation, with most of the tracks from Mark Moogy Klingman album, plus bonus tracks.
They also played together in some sessions for
Todd Rundgren, as we can read in the 'sessions' page (link below).
Streak was a trio formed by singer Alan Merrill in 1971:
But, in 2002, a new album by containing rare and
unreleased tracks feature those old tracks by Streak. The title is Tawny
tracks, and it's credited to The Arrows & Friends. Great musicians
featured here: Alan Merrill (vocals, guitar, bass), Terry Taylor (guitar),
Jake Hooker (guitar), Steve Gould (guitar, keyboards, vocals), Bill Wyman
(bass, producer), Mickey Feat (bass), Tetsu Yamauchi (bass), Ian McLagan
(keyboards), John 'Rabbit' Bundrick (keyboards), Mike Montgomery (keyboards),
Paul Varley (drums), Ollie Brown (drums), John Siomos (drums), Pete Phipps
(drums), Jason Tilley (backing vocals).
John Siomos replaced Mike Kellie in March 1973:
They released the album Frampton's Camel, with occasional help in some tracks by Frank Carillo playing acoustic guitar. The album contains one track co-written by Frampton, Wills Gallagher and Siomos, the beautiful 'Do you feel like we do'.
In summer 1974, Gallagher leaves, joining then a superb musician, Andy Bown:
Then, Peter Frampton changes his band name, being no more Frampton's Camel, but Peter Frampton Band.
Without a complete lineup (no bassist), they record the album Frampton in 1975:
John Siomos rejoins Frampton, in a very tight unit:
Their next album is I'm in you, released in 1977, with help from Mick Jagger (backing vocals), Ringo Starr (drums), Stevie Wonder (harmonica), Richie Hayward (percussion) and the fantastic keyboardist Mike Finnegan (this time, only on backing vocals). The album contains a track co-written by John and the whole band, 'Won't you be my friend'.
And Siomos left Frampton's band around 1978.
Shine on: a collection is a double CD compilation, with some unreleased tracks. The list of performers includes: the much-missed Steve Marriott (guitar, harmonica, vocals), Frank Carillo (guitar), Steve Lukather (guitar), Mick Jones (guitar), Mark Goldenberg (guitar, bass), Rick Wills (bass, vocals), Stanley Sheldon (bass), John Regan (bass), Nathan East (bass), Eddie Watkins (bass), Mickey Gallagher (keyboards), Bob Mayo (keyboards, guitar), Arthur Stead (keyboards), Andy Bown (keyboards, bass), Richard Cottle (keyboards), Pete Solley (producer), Jim Price (horns), John Siomos (drums, percussion), Mike Kellie (drums), Ringo Starr (drums), Steve Ferrone (drums), Anton Fig (drums), Gary Mallaber (drums), John Robinson (drums), Jeff Porcaro (drums), Lenny Castro (percussion), Steve Forman (percussion), Mike Finnegan (backing vocals), Danny Wilde (backing vocals), Jeannie McClain (backing vocals), Mark Williamson (backing vocals), and the Waters family (backing vocals: I assume they must be Oren Waters, Maxine Willard Waters, Julia Tillman Waters, etc).
20th century masters - the millenium collection:
the best of Peter Frampton is another compilation of some of his
best tracks. Some of the performers are: Frank Carillo (guitar), Steve
Lukather (guitar), Rick Wills
(bass, vocals), Stanley Sheldon (bass), John Regan (bass), Mickey Gallagher
(keyboards), Bob Mayo (keyboards, guitar), Arthur Stead (keyboards), Andy
Bown (keyboards, bass), John Siomos (drums, percussion), Mike
Kellie (drums), Gary Mallaber (drums), Jeff Porcaro (drums), Steve
Forman (percussion), Mike Finnegan (backing vocals) and the Waters family
(backing vocals: I assume they must be Oren Waters, Maxine Willard Waters,
Julia Tillman Waters, etc).
After leaving Frampton's band, I haven't been able
to trace more band with John Siomos for a long time. I think he came back
to the States. Maybe he just played in sessions. Does anybody know?
This is the next project I've known with John. Mike Duggan is a great blues guitarist. In the mid eighties, John joins his band, with other great players, and based in New York:
And, again, I haven't known more about John Siomos.
Can anybody help?
1. Does anybody know if John Siomos plays on Jobriath two albums Jobriath (1973) and Creatures of the street (1974)? There's one John Syomis credited, and besides, Peter Frampton plays on both albums, so I guess it's maybe him.

Coming soon (I hope so!).
