Random bits of LOUIE

Today, as I did some Google-surfing to see what papers carried the AP story on Jack Ely and LOUIE LOUIE, I found some interesting sidenotes.

First, a quote that I loved…

“It’s always fun to be up on a stage and make a lot of noise. Listen, I still love Louie, Louie. Here it is 40 years later, and I’m still turning that song up. I know it’s not good music, but here we are.”
Michael McKean (Spinal Tap, A Mighty Wind, Waiting for Guffman)

Then, a couple of quick things….

Terry Adams of NRBQ fame has a new band that has been known to play Louie Louie.

Dave Berry, formerly of Rock Rottom Remainders and Federal Duck, still knows the words to Louie Louie.

Some guy in Staten Island, NY by the name of Rich Russo claims that he’s discovered “the next Louie Louie.”
