I took a train to Connecticut yesterday to visit my pop and meet up with my friend Gerry Giaimo. Gerry and I played together a year or so ago and I wanted re-kindle some of that old magic. What better place to do that than at the house of a magician? Did I mention my father is a magician? True story. Yes, I have been pulled out of a hat and oddly I was born in the year of the rabbit. I digress.
So, Gerry and I toiled over what cover song to do. It came down to Beck and Motley Crue. Once we tried playing this Beck number there really wasn’t any question. In fact we never got around to even trying out the Crue tune. There’s always tomorrow!
Senator and The New Republic playing Bettie Page live at Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles. For some reason this video doubled up and plays twice in a row. It’s amazing what a maiden voyage on youtube will produce.
