Biography

RockBoar.com Picture

     The Other Half were a psychedelic hard rock band, based in San Francisco, active in the mid to late 1960s.

     Actually, most of the Other Half’s material was far less garage than psychedelic, featuring the sustain-laden guitar of Randy Holden, one of the best Jeff Beck-inspired axemen of the ’60s.

    Boasting a just-out-of-the-garage approach to Haight-Ashbury psychedelia, the group cut a little-heard, fairly strong album, as well as a few rare singles, in 1967 and 1968. Holden, who had previously played in the L.A. psychedelic garage band Sons of Adam, went on to join Blue Cheer and record on his own.
