That's a great video. Along with lots of pretty girls, there's also a Jack Casady bass. What's not to love?
Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

The banality; the glorification of frat boy get wasted culture with it's toxic machismo.  AKA douchebag party rock like Dave said.

I love Animal House, but that's an obvious lampoon ( not that this fact stops many from somehow taking it seriously.... just like that first Beastie Boys album.... and even the second one where they thought they made it even more obvious).

I have a hard believe G these guys aren't at least a little bit serious, even if they are having some fun with it.

Toxic machismo? Pink at the CMAs? Australians singing country?

Alas!, I haven't even revealed my favourite C&W band yet.

Since the Deep Purple topic has been approached, this might be added:  Don't tear down these sculptures!!

Trapeze artists who sing pop, but not really because now they're appearing at country music shows, that's what country is all about.

Marty Robbins, 1969 performance of his 1963 hit




Cyndi Lauper, from Detour, her 2016 country album, which is more country than anything on the mainstream country charts.

The pretty boys of new country could learn something from Cyndi Lauper's authentic vocals.  I'm just wondering if they have any idea how awful they really sound.  Evidently not.

I like Keith Urban. Though truthfully, he's just twangy adult contemporary soft rock. The man can flat out shred, really sings his songs, and paid his dues playing clubs in Australia playing American country. Like Brad Paisley, I can ignore the schmaltz because there is real inspired talent there and the pop hooks are nowhere near as offensively phony as the faux "outlaws" of modern bro-country. Those guys don't pretend to be hard luck stories and they DID pay their dues (Paisley played Dollywood near here for years before he hit it big)

Needless to say, both also have prominent wives.  Kimberley Williams is known for being a comedic actress.  But I saw Nicole Kidman on late night TV recently and didn't realize how funny she can be, too.  I was laughing pretty hard.
