One follow-up to this hit, "Take Me for a Little While", was an original composition with a very similar sound both in musical themes and treatment, but it said something quite different from its forerunner. While it did not do nearly as well commercially, it did attract some airplay, making it a rare instance of a band successfully parodying their own work. The members of Vanilla Fudge were great admirers of The Beatles, and covered several of their songs including "Ticket to Ride", of their version of which The Beatles were quite fond. Vinnie Martel was invited to play with Jimi Hendrix, but Hendrix died a month later. Bogert & Appice also played with jazz/rock guitarist Jeff Beck on their self-titled album in 1973. (Beck replaced Eric Clapton in the Yardbirds in the late 1960s.) Stein and Appice revived the band in 1984, with very minor success.
The band has not recorded, but has played some concerts since. A live concert recorded in Chicago in 1987 has been released recently. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
