The band intersperses memorable originals like “Life,” “Livin’ It Up” and “Shocker” from their soon-to-be-released album, produced by Guns N’ Roses dial-twister Mike Clink, with cool covers such as Golden Earring’s “Radar Love” and “Rebel Yell,” featuring Crowner’s perfect Elvis-meets-Billy Idol sneer. It sure looks a lot more fun than going to college, but do they have something to fall back on?
Rock & roll means never having to say you’re sorry, and these Valley guys are anything but... Someone sign them up while they’re still burning with ambition, and supported by dad.
Gripes of the Week
If you read my “Gripe” a few weeks back, you know I’ve had my issues with unequal traffic enforcement, but, except for the occasional California roll through a stop sign, I generally obey these laws to the letter, always erring on the side of caution. I’m not one who is prone to road rage, either, but I do get pissed off when a car jumps the so-called “right of way” protocol at a four-way stop sign.
I also don’t like it when a car in the lane I’m trying to merge into speeds up rather than slows down to let me in. And when an automobile not making a right turn ends up in the right-hand lane at a red light. Also, when somebody is tailing me too closely. It’s enough to make you flip the bird.
