That’s some brutal stuff to play, and I like it. None of those players are reading sheet music and don’t need to stare at the keys. I never learned piano, but the ambidextriousity of it all amazes me.

That’s Terry Miles on the 88s, and apparently the girl in the checkers is his daughter. Security Goon tried to stop the fun. (Here’s another fun romp.)

Will Bradley, Ray McKinley & Freddie Slack had some fun back then. At 01:15 is the WB/RMc logo on the bass drum. Not sure, but that might be a cameo by Slim Gaillard at 02:36.

Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen covered Bradley & McKinley’s “Beat Me Daddy Eight To The Bar” in 1977. Here’s a more recent vid.

Some might dismiss it as geezer rock, but it’s actually pre-pre-geezer. The style dates to the 1890s.

Don’t touch that dial, stay tuned & have a great weekend, folks.
