{#Arrowu}You said it best Greiff.  For the soulless amongst us, are you a Slytherin, a HuffNpull, a RavenCLAW or a Gryffindor?

One of my biggest regrets was not going to see him when he was in Anchorage in summer of 2000.

Indeed!

Here's where Billy Gibbons got that "A-how-how-how" on La Grange.  Not to mention many, many of his boogie licks.....

I wonder how many times he recorded this with how many different bands, guests, etc? Pretty sure that each one was a hit.

Saw him years ago. A local band opened for him—smoking hot lead singer. Turns out for this gig they're also Hook's backing band. He strolls out for his set holding a pint glass filled to the brim with some, um, amber liquid. Pretty sure it wasn't ginger ale or herb tea. He doesn't take his eye off the band's lead singer during his entire set. In between songs he's like, "C'mon here and sit on my knee, honey." Sang "Boom Boom" that night like he meant it. Audacious old coot!

Just to clear up the earlier confusion about whether it is a 'bad' song.  It is wicked bad. A genuine bit of filth.  As fat as it comes.
