Randy CaliforniaZaloženi roku 1967 v Los Angeles. Hudební styly, ze kterých SPIRIT vycházeli byly: jazz, blues, rock, folk a samozřejmě opera. S těmito různými směry se pilně experimentovalo. Vzniklý materiál může být poslouchán pouze s největší opatrností. Lépe je před koupí si každou desku této skupiny poslechnout.  
Dva ze zakladatelů - Ferguson a Andes, odešli v roce 1971 od SPIRIT a ve své nové kapele JO JO GUNNE se obešli bez experimentů. 
SPIRIT experimentoval ve studiu a "rockoval" na pódiích. Randy California byl ovlivněný J.Hendrixem. Jeho verze skladeb "All Along The Watchtower" a "Hey Joe" připomínají ty Hendrixovy. Poslechni si Randyho songy "1984" (podle Orwella) a "Animal Zoo". Živé nahrávky německých koncertů,(mezi jinými i z Rockpalastu), "musí mít" každý pravověrný rocker.

O SPIRIT kolovalo mnoho historek:
Ed Cassidy (nevlastní otec Randyho), byl jazzový bubeník. Hrál s Charlie Parkerem, Milesem Davisem, Ry Cooderem a Taj Mahalem. U jistého sóla si zlomil obě zápěstí a jazzové paličky vyměnil za mírnější rockové.

 

Ed CassidyRandy California dostal jméno od Jimiho Hendrixe podle svého rodiště. Hrál s ním po jistý čas v New Yorku ve skupině jménem JIMI JAMES & THE BLUE FLAMES. Randy byl tenkrát 16 let stár! Hendrix jej chtěl vzít do Anglie, aby ho nechal bubnovat ve své nové skupině EXPERIENCE. Byl to však problém, Randy nebyl ještě plnoletý a přísní rodiče to zakázali.
 
Randy California se utopil uprostřed 90.let na Hawaji, když chtěl zachránit svého syna v moři.
Syn přežil, ale Randy California nebyl nikdy nalezen.
