Speaks his mind on music & movies!
CB listens to and has listened to a lot of music but if you asked him to get honest (catch him when he’s drunk) and tell you secretly what his favorite genre is he just might say ‘You know that rockabilly stuff like Gene Vincent plays”.
I loved this tune (written by Bernice Bedwell) when I first heard it and time hasn’t diminished that feeling. I’m not a music historian but I know for a fact that Gene and his contemporaries inspired countless future rockers. You can dress up the music and add layers of production but it’s hard to beat this original rock n roll. Cliff Gallup (a hero of Jeff Beck) is the guitar player on this and he is awesome. Along with the rest of the Blue Caps they back the “Catman” on this one. CB is a big Gene Vincent guy. What a sound.
CB missed this era by a few years but he would have had a tube of Brylcreem in his hair if he would have been there, coping the tough guy, cool guy stance.
Go cat go! Rock!
