Weird Al made a song that pokes fun of the way George Thorogood and some other musicians have a long lead-up heading into a song. Of course he did.  ::) And in truly Weird fashion, he proceeded to overdo it. My motto is, anything worth doing is worth overdoing. So present to you, in all it's 11:23 minutes of glory, the song Albuquerque, in which he does eventually get to the point. Enjoy! Or don't. Enjoyment is always optional. ;D I have a little story here for you...

I just came across a live performance of Liar by Rollins Band at the 1994 Grammy Awards. That's one of the few times I know of he's performed wearing anything more than a pair of shorts. Soundgarden won the Grammy for Best Metal Performance for Spoonman. During their acceptance speeches lead guitarist Kim Thayil said You know, Henry and Chris and the rest of Rollins Band come out here and kick your ass, and you guys turn around and lie to them. Then lead vocalist Chris Cornell says Sorry Henry and waves as they leave the stage.

Frijid Pink is a Detroit area blues rock band formed in 1967,  best known for their 1969 rendition of "House of the Rising Sun". I like their version better than The Animals', but they didn't sound as good in 2016-2017 from the little bit I heard. Here are a few live versions of theirs of House of the Rising Sun and The Animals' version. And I'll throw in something else I just found, just for S&G*.

* s***s and giggles ;D

UFO, an English rock band formed in London in 1968, became a transitional group between early hard rock and heavy metal, and the new wave of British heavy metal. The band featured former Scorpions guitarist and Michael Schenker Group (MSG) founder Michael Schenker, who was a member of UFO from 1973 to 1978 and rejoined the band sporadically between 1993 and 2003. He was an early member of the hard rock band Scorpions, a band co-founded by his elder brother Rudolf Schenker. In the mid-1970s, Schenker joined UFO, playing lead and rhythm guitar. He left the band in 1978 to found the Michael Schenker Group. He has rejoined UFO three times, producing an album each time. Schenker continues to perform and record. He has been called "a legendary figure in the history of metal guitar.

Over a career spanning 55 years, UFO have released 22 studio albums, 14 live recordings, 16 compilation albums and one album of cover songs. They achieved moderate success in the late 1970s and early 1980s with several albums and singles (including their 1979 live album Strangers in the Night) in the UK and US Top 40 charts, and have sold over 20 million records worldwide. Some of their best-known songs include "Doctor Doctor", "Rock Bottom", "Natural Thing", "Lights Out", "Too Hot to Handle" and "Only You Can Rock Me". UFO are considered one of the greatest classic hard rock acts, and often cited as one of the key influences on the 1980s and 1990s hard rock and heavy metal scenes. The band were ranked number 84 on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock".

UFO have influenced a number of bands, such as:
    Metallica
    Iron Maiden
    Judas Priest
    Def Leppard
    Dio
    Scorpions
    Guns N' Roses
    Megadeth
    Slayer
    Testament
    Anthrax
    Carcass
    Overkill
    Iced Earth
    Anvil
    Saxon
    The Offspring
    Alice in Chains
    Pearl Jam
    Rage Against the Machine
    The Smashing Pumpkins
    Tesla
    Dokken
    Monster Magnet
    Voivod
    Bigelf
    Babylon A.D.
    Gun
    Europe

The waH, waH, waH, waH, waH! of the keyboards on Lights Out reminds me a little of Jon Lord of Deep Purple. It doesn't show Lord's style and complexity, but has some of the energy he showed when he ignored the Moog synthesizer others were starting to play with, and began experimenting by driving the Hammond organ through Marshall amplifiers in an effort to match the attack and volume of Ritchie Blackmore's guitar. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but it's reminiscent of someone else back then too, but I can't think of who.

Doctor Doctor - 1974.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer's fifth studio album, Works Volume 1, released as a double album in 1977 had the song C'est la Vie on it. The same year, Johnny Hallyday, once called "the French Elvis", came out with an album called C'est la vie that had a version of the ELP song C'est la Vie on it in French. I think I heard this on the radio before. Johnny Hallyday, was a French rock and roll and pop singer and actor, credited for having brought rock and roll to France. During a career spanning 57 years, he released 79 albums and sold more than 110 million records worldwide, mainly in the French-speaking world, making him one of the best-selling artists in the world. He had five diamond albums, 40 golden albums, 22 platinum albums and earned ten Victoires de la Musique. He sang an estimated 1,154 songs and performed 540 duets with 187 artists. More than 2,500 magazine covers and 190 books were dedicated to him during his lifetime, making him one of the people most widely covered by the media in France. His death from cancer in 2017 was followed by a "popular tribute" during which a million people attended the procession and 15 million others watched the ceremony on TV. He remained relatively unknown in the English-speaking world, where he was dubbed "the biggest rock star you've never heard of" and introduced as the French version of Elvis Presley.

Works Volume 2 is the sixth studio album by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, also released in 1977. Unlike Works Volume 1 (which consisted of three solo sides and one ensemble side), Works Volume 2 was a single album, and it was seemingly a compilation of leftover tracks from other album sessions. While many derided the album for its apparent lack of focus, others praised it for showing a different side of the band than usual, with blues, bluegrass and jazz being very prominent as musical genres in this recording. The band's logo, designed by H. R. Giger, was introduced in 1973 on Brain Salad Surgery, their fourth studio album. The album art, inside and out, was created by H. R. Giger, the Swiss artist famous for creating the Xenomorph creatures for the the Alien movies. He also created the album art for Debbie Harry's first solo album, Kookoo, from photos by her Blondie band-mate Chris Stein.
