Lightning A.K.A. White Lightning - 1968-71

Lightning were a band from my home town Minneapolis, Minnesota. Founded by guitarist Zippy Kaplan and bassist Woody Woodrich. The band was pretty popular locally due to Kaplan's fame playing with The Litter. The manager of KDWB radio station mistook the single "Of Paupers and Poets" for a song by Cream, giving the band valuable early airtime. They eventually broke up citing musical differences.
