FUOCO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Crazy Arthur Brown sings his hallmark ditty, in the tongue of my ancestors.

Enjoy...............

"Danby. D-A-N-B-Y."
"Take him out and shoot him."
"Sir?"
"I said take him out and shoot him. Can't you hear?"

Like the Spanish Inquisition, I never expected that.  Pretty great.  Great music. 

Sadly, that video is a lip synced (sunk?) version of a lip synched (sunk?) video from a UK TV show.

Didn't Arthur spend much of the 80's down there in Texas getting a degree in counseling or something?

Check this one out:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLMjHy12eWo&NR=1  As the commenter there says, "Lady gaga eat your heart out."

Here he is last year:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvR98KuHt4U

Not quite...........

it is an overdubbed version, of something that was a lip-synced film clip, shown on a Brit TV show. You can clearly see how badly it is lip-synced, the original version. There are plenty of those around, and you can clearly see how he is looking aside, and then realizes he is supposed to be singing something.

The best part..............other than the eye-tie overdub, is the fire helmut. That version had a bolt, that would eventually get so hot that he had to remove it.

That...........and the leather strap made it hard to sing.

Yes! Although, the rumor was spread that he died during "captivity" at some funny farm.

Alice Cooper, KISS, Gwar, and who knows how many other acts owe their existence to that nut.

Lady GaGa................talentless trollop. Cheesy Madonna clone. Which is redundant.

There's a bunch of acts from around that time that really paved the way for later "original" groups.  The Tubes for one...

Thankfully, I missed them.
