Fooled Around and Fell in Love

May 31, 2024

This month I’m focusing on One Hit Wonders of the 70s.

Today our song is:  Fooled Around and Fell in Love

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

Bishop does not sing lead vocals on the track. He felt that his gravelly voice would not do the song justice; he invited vocalist Mickey Thomas, who was a background singer in his band at the time, to sing it. It peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in May 1976. The record was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on June 23, 1976. In Canada, the song reached #22 on the singles chart and #8 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The single reached #3 in the New Zealand Singles Chart.

Based on his work with Bishop, Thomas was invited to become the lead singer for Jefferson Starship (which would later evolve into simply Starship)

Don't miss out on the recap for this month!



  1. Elvin Bishop started with Paul Butterfield in Chicago. He doesn't seem to play any more blues...
