Hey!

Who sings that song where the chorus goes, "...they don't ride like that anymore..."

It's got a cool intro guitar too. Anybody got the tab?

It's not Greg Kihn...

However for the life of me, I can't recall who it is... If you could give me a few more words... I may recall...

At least I don't think it's Greg Kihn.. hell, I don't know... but I'm almost certain it's not, because as I recall, Greg Kihn, didn't do much of anything I liked... and I do recall liking this song...

Maybe it's a blues tune I wrote in the '80s called "They Don't Make 'Em That Way No More (Sweet Louie's Blues)", recorded by Nat Reese.



(J/k, old Nat sold about.....um......maybe two hundred copies of that album! laugh.gif )

No (but Ted Nugent stole the riff and theme from my tune "Poontang Strut") (which I stole myself from an old 1930s LeRoy Carr-Scrapper Blackwell tune!) for his tune "Hey Baby" when the lead singer in a band I used to be in went to be the lead-singer for one of Ted's bands. Does that count? laugh.gif

No, I used to play with a guy named Johnny Angelos. In 1970 I quit that band and was replaced. The band broke up a few months after that anyway and Johnny was asked by Ted to join the Dukes, which he did and played, rather sang, with them for maybe a year. Johnny wouldn't contract with the Dukes when Ted asked (he was a real trip, he had a major swelled-head problem and never could stand the idea of being considered not the major-player of any band he was in, which would have been the case with the Dukes. Between his ego and his mommy, he had some major head-issues (which he eventually resolved with suicide) (ten years too late, i/m/h/o). Which is why I'd quit (and I was going deeper into blues more anyway). After Ted said "sign or leave", he left and started a new band called the Torpedos, which (like we did) started having some promise and major-label interest, but (again, like with us) he fukked it up because of his ego, personality and hissy-fit demands. I've found MOST lead-singers (who don't play another instrument in the band) to be very similar to him psycologically, some maybe not as bad and some even worse, but still like him.

ahhh... who's got the big head... the singer or Ted... lol

I'd talked to Derick St. Holmes a number of times when he was playing in Brownstown... right there at Telegraph and (damn brain fart) can't remember the cross street.. Goes right into Trenton... anyhoo....

I'd always assumed he wrote Hey Baby... as he always played it when I saw him... of course he sang it with Ted... and I always felt Derick was a far better guitar player than Ted...

I've met Teds old drummer a few times... Gunner Ross... I guess he's got a new band and they are billing themselves as a Ted Nugent tribute band... Touring with ZZ Top at the moment... I caught them on a "pre-tour" gig in Dundee... a couple of weeks ago... I'm not to sure if you keep up on the scene here now in the big D... however, the guitar player with him is Hunter Brucks... Both he and Gunner were mainstays here in Monroe for quite a few years.. prior to Gunner being picked up by Nugent...

I got in big trouble that night..I've known Hunter's wife and twin sister for nearly 20 years... and at the news that her twin sister was available, I whispered in her ear, that I'd been waiting for her sister for years... Well, the girl I was with got pissed... cause she heard me whisper exactally word for word what I said... she's told me before she can hear bats... god damn I didn't belive her then, but now I'm starting to think she might be able to... lol

West Road maybe??? There used to be a club there in the 60s...Painted Pony or something like that. Anyway, yeah I liked St. Homes guitar better too. More....pleasing melodically, I guess....as opposed to just speed-riff driven stuff.

I sympathize with your woman-troubles too. Try coming home from a Saturday night gig and on Sunday morning while you're taking your white Les Paul out of the case as you explain to your wife you that you were home later than usual last night because the bass-player needed a ride home, while she's looking at the back of it (which you haven't seen yet) where some floozy wrote her name and phone number on it in lipstick so you wouldn't forget to call her!

West Road is it.... and yes that's the club... It's gone through so many changes in last 20 years, it's hard to keep up with the new name..

Anyway, back to the subject. The word is "write"........

CODE
The Breakup Song
The Greg Kihn Band

We had broken up for good just an hour before,
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
And now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing 'cross the floor.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
And then the band slowed the tempo, and the music gets you down.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
It was the same old song, with a melancholy sound.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

They don't write 'em like that anymore.
They just don't write 'em like that anymore.

We'd been living together for a million years,
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
But now it feels so strange out of the atmospheres.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
And then the jukebox plays a song I used to know.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
And now I'm staring at the bodies as they're dancing so slow.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

They don't write 'em like that anymore.
They don't write 'em like that anymore.

Mmmm, now I wind up staring at an empty glass
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.
Cause it's so easy to say that she'll forget your past.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah.

They don't write 'em like that anymore.
No, they just don't write 'em like that anymore.
Oh, they don't write 'em like that anymore.
They just don't write 'em like that anymore.
They just don't, no they don't, no no, uh-uh,
They just don't write 'em like that anymore.
They just don't...(fades)

Man,

You just have some crazy crazy stories...I think that is half the reason that I come to this site... wink.gif

Also that breakup song...very cool sounding...I recently broke up with a girl...maybe I need to learn the blues...more.

The longer you "do it", the more crazy stories you pick up along the way.





(Some time I'll tell the one about the gig where one girls panties hung on the ceiling-fan going around and round all night while my Mesa Boogie wore a 38 D-cup bra.)






Yeah, only classsy gigs for me....... laugh.gif )
