Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"CaliFORE Tour "
The first time I saw the band it was at the Lacuna Seca Raceway near Monterey and Salinas. They were on the "Cali-FORE" Tour of May-June 1987 to promote the "FORE!" album that was released the year before. This mini-tour consisted of FOUR/FORE shows in CaliFOREnia - Petaluma, Angels Camp, Lacuna Seca, and Marin County (Bay Area).
Submitted by: I Chase California Girls!
"FORE! (album)"
FORE! is a term used in the SPORT of golf, and this 1986 album is the band's FOURTH.
Submitted by: CaliFOREnia Rocker
"Jacob's Ladder"
When the Jim + Tammy Bakker Heritage U.S.A. Ministry scandal started to break out, this song hit the top of the American Billboard Hot 100. The song's lyrics are critical of the self-ordained preachers and televangelists and their ripoff practices.
