Find A Song:
Wanting to be a Rock Star

Older Song:

In the 70s I heard a song in Calgary Alberta that started with a male guitarist strumming and singing that he wished to be a rock star or in a band.

When he sang that all he needed was some background drums, drums picked up the rhythm.

Then when he sang that needed a horn, a horn joined in, and so on, and so on, until they were basically rocking.

The song then reversed with the lone guitarist wishing to be in a band.

So, who was the artist and what was the song. I suspect that it was a country artist.
