Stillwater is a band which existed during the seventies. The band got highlighted when they were portrayed in Cameron Crowe’s 2000 film “Almost Famous.” Interestingly, “Stillwater” band in the movie was completely fictitious and represented various bands of the era, especially “The Eagles”, “Led Zeppelin” etc and had no resemblance to the original band.
Unlike the fictitious band of the movie, the real Stillwater band was formed in 1973 in Georgia with triple guitar team of Make Causey (Guitar), Bobby Golden (Guitar, vocals) and Rob Walker (Guitar), Jimmy Hall (Vocals), Allison Scarborough (Bass, vocals), Bob Spearman (Keyboards, vocals) and Sebie Lacey (Drums). They produced only two albums during the seventies (Stillwater-1977) and (I Reserve the Right-1979). They were about to hit big, but their record label Capricorn Records was going through bad times. They soon disbanded after they were left without a label. However they did have a reunion in the nineties and produced another album “Running Free”.
