Excitable Boy is such a great album
I saw a werewolf drinking a piña colada at Trader Vic's
And his hair was perfect
I Need a Truck....
Sweet home alabam...awww!
His hair was perfect
Thanks for posting
I assume this was prompted by today's date--Halloween? Or am I reading too much into it?
You’re bringing the wolfsbane upon yourself...wolfsband
Witch wolfsbane are you referring to, sir?
Oh. You mean that Kid Rock song.
Always makes me think of The Color of Money......great song, great scene, great film.
I ha dthe strangest experience with that song one night. I was playing at a pub for a small guarantee and tips and a guy said he'd give me $20 to play "Werewolves Of London"- which I had never played, but had certainly heard a million times. I quickly googled the lyrics and launched into the riff: D C G a-G and started singing:
"I went home with a waitress
the way I always do
ow was I to know
she was with the Russians, too?"
Some complete bastard had put the lyrics to Lawyers Gun and Money on a lyric site, but labeled them Werewolves of London. It was so, so confusing. I couldn't even figure out what was happening until I was two verses in. Kept the $20, though.
Dawn the monkshood & lurk in the nightshade
Love the alliteration of "Little old lady got mutilated late last night" and the way the syllables hit the rhythm and bounce to the melody as he sings it.. is that what sometimes gets referred to as "metre"?
Love that album. You GOTTA have a piano for Werewolves though.
When I kick myself over the artists I have somehow missed in concert at their very peak, then I remind myself of a wonderful solo gig Warren did at a little club on Tchoupitoulas, that I saw by myself. Or, actually the second half included Timmy B. Schmidt also. What a force Warren was.
My old roommate turned me on to his music, probably the late eighties. It soon became a favorite of my then future wife. He left us too soon.
In later years, I noticed David Letterman would have him on his talk show many times. Apparantly he was a big fan too.
“Wha Hooo, Pit bulls of Fresno”
Fleetwood, McVie, and Waddy Wachtel....what's not to like? And that slide is spot-on perfect for the song, IMHO.
I discovered him too late. His final album was kind of haunting to me.
