Ile razy słucham tego zespołu mam mieszane uczucia - z jednej strony podoba mi się siermiężne brzmienie, ale z drugiej tchnie jakimś brakiem określenia. W każdym razie musi coś być w muzyce Mount Rushmore skoro mimo upływu lat - stale do niej wracam. Ciekaw jestem wrażeń Czytelników chociaż jakoś ostatnio coraz mniej komentarzy.

Mount Rushmore was a rock band in the late 1960s from San Francisco, California that played a heavy blues rock style with psychedelic elements.

The band formed in late 1966 at 1915 Oak Street, a large Victorian rooming house in the Haight-Ashbury district. In June and July 1967 they were featured on posters for shows at the Avalon Ballroom with other bands including the Quicksilver Messenger Service and Big Brother and the Holding Company. After some members including Phillips left for the band Phoenix in 1968, new members were added and the group made two albums.

Warren B. Phillips was the former lead singer for the band and wrote a few songs that were recorded by the band after he left.

Fullerton continued a career as a drummer. Mike Bolan and Glen Smith were previously members of The Fabulous Shadows, a band from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, 1963-1968. Mike Bolan rejoined them later and they have been performing in Idaho on through 2005. Terry Kimball (deceased) was a member of the band Tony Vance and The Progress Hornsby 4, from Spokane, Washington, 1967 - 1968.
