Who Was (is) Mountain?

Mountain is an early heavy metal band formed in 1969, disbanded in 1973 and then reformed several times.  They are still playing today.

Mountain's one commercial hit was Mississippi Queen which still gets airplay on classic rock stations today.

Their 1970 album (pictured above) also has the distinction of being maybe the worst pun in the history of heavy metal.  Although not included in the original album of the event, Mountain's fourth live concert was a little gig in New York, called Woodstock.
