: Okay, you think Shatner is bad? Your musing does not fall far from reality, dear Doc M. Try the album “No More Mr. Nice Guy” by Pat Boone. He does hard rock and heavy metal covers, most notably “Smoke on the Water” and “Stairway To Heaven.” I kid you not. A guy at my former newspaper played it for all of us one day. I think some people are still in therapy...
Oh, I don't know, having to sit through Mr. Page, playing Stairway to Heaven on an acoustic guitar all by himself (I suppose he figured we'd all hum the missing parts.....)That really ranks up there as gut retching....
And Christina, I'll send your co-worker my David Hemmings album; I am sure you guys would love listening to that one!
And thanks a lot, Doc M....I've had that silly tune, what, "Identical cousins.....etc" from what, Haley Mills, or was that the Patty Duke thing....
