That's a rare one. I didn't learn they were Mammoth before until I saw a documentary.

Every web, a start here:

I used to see them at the Roxy in the late 70s.
Can't play their first album loud enough. It's the only album ever that you can crank up and beyond and the music stays clear as a bell; all the harmonics come alive. 3 instruments and a voice. Amazing really.

Mammoth Mountain. A great place to ski and as they were a L.A. band that is my guess or I have a mammoth headache from too much drink the night before.


I say a LA thing

The Van Halen brothers formed their very first band, called The Broken Combs, in 1964. As they progressed and gained popularity, they started to play many backyard parties and changed the name of their band to The Trojan Rubber Co.

In 1972, the Van Halen brothers formed a band called Genesis featuring Eddie as lead vocalist/guitarist, Alex on drums, and Mark Stone on bass. They initially rented a sound system from David Lee Roth but decided to save money by letting him join as lead vocalist even though his previous audition(s) had been unsuccessful.

By 1974, the band decided to replace Stone, so Michael Anthony, bassist and lead vocalist from local band Snake was auditioned. Following an all-night jam session, he was hired for bass and backing vocals.

The band later changed its name to Mammoth when they discovered the name Genesis was already being used. In 1974, Mammoth officially changed its name to Van Halen.
