If It Were Easy As Fishin', You Could Be A Musician...

I am McLovin... lovin' BTO, that is. (That's Bachman Turner Overdrive, for those unfamiliar with their awesomeness.) These guys are the ultimate grizzled '70's trucker/rockers, and I want to have their musical lovechild. Who else could pair classic lines like 'it's the work that we avoid / and we're all self-employed' with driving guitar and a kicka$$ groove? No one else, I tell you. And don't even get me started on the growling, husky vocals of bassist/lead singer Fred Turner! Randy could sing too, but BTO just couldn't 'B' without the Turner-man.

So I found this 1975 video clip of the band's timeless big rig anthem, "Roll on Down the Highway". Watch it, and see how ass is kicked. Follow the link, good buddy:

BTO - back in the good ol' days

And now, for your further viewing pleasure... Here's a hi-freaking-larious vid of the same BTO song, but with a bunch of seriously goofy-cute Asian boys lipsync-ing along. It's some good, clean, rollicking fun that you can't help but tap your feet to (while laughing your stomach straight into seizures) :D
