WAKING CREW 2.0
Today on the Waking Crew, all about rock 'n roll myths...and they've been around for a long time, yet, much like bad debt, they can't be gotten rid of...here are a few of them...
1. Gene Simmons and his cow tongue
Gene Simmons is the most outlandish member of a band founded upon outsized spectacle. The KISS bass guitarist is known to brandish his unusually long tongue in concert. His tongue is so long, in fact, many speculated no human’s tongue could naturally be so long. Rumors declared that Simmons had a cow’s tongue grafted onto his own to complement his demonic persona in KISS.
There’s plenty wrong with this theory, beginning with the fact that a cow’s tongue looks entirely different from a human tongue and that medical technology in the ’70s was nowhere near equipped to handle an interspecies tongue-grafting procedure. Gene Simmons’ tongue is the genuine article. On a related note, the members of KISS did shed their own blood to be mixed with the red ink used to produce Marvel’s first KISS comic book. And that is no myth.
2. "Louis Louis" by The Kingsmen
Louis Louis by the Kingsmen from the early 60’s was the subject of major controversy upon release, as parents claimed the lyrics, which are mostly indecipherable, were obscene and could be clearly heard by playing the record at a slower RPM. -The FBI even became involved in investigating the claims, eventually concluding that they were unable to interpret the lyrics. The controversy was the first of many similar incidents, in which parents and authority figures became convinced rockers were inserting obscene or Satanic messages in their records that could only be heard by playing the records backwards or slowed-down. But, as we found with back-tracks on Bles Bridges albums, all you get are potjiekos recipes!
Jarret will be back after the weekend...until then, Karlien joins me. Don't forget to catch Chops at Spes Bona Motor Company at the Tourism Expo and Motor Show this Saturday!
