    Ok, one of the silliest double entendres, and video, and yet


    the Fleshtones covered it


    Wilcox was a bit of a nut/ bar legend.



    Cheers,

    Will just add that I think he played with Ian and Sylvia Tyson. And saw his band with the bassist in the Pipe video at least a couple times. They were awesome.

    I also heard that the early Strat he is pictured with on the cover of his first record was lost in a poker game. True? Who knows.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    I was cracking up because in the first video, he kind of looks like Yankees TV announcer Michael Kay.

    P.S. Speaking of the Fleshtones, I once saw them in the mid-80s and they just completely killed it.

    He sure doesn’t look like that now.
