A very bizarre song. But what was weirder was the single B side was the A side recorded in reverse. Plus the record label was mirror image. Very weird. Uncle Dave can probably tell you more about this song because he knew Napoleon XIV who recorded it.

Probably not now, but, playing Frat parties, I was pretty out of control.

Think, "If you wenna be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife".

How about backing George Clinton 1/2 in the bag?

On a national TV show years ago, I played "Jazzman, complete with a beret and wild glasses.. My instrument was a big block of ice, which I attached with great vigor with Ice Picks. Broke an expensive lens with a chip one night.

Used to dress in drag and sing "There's nothing left of me, since my hysterectomy". Discarding the fake boobs and wig, I sang, "Don't look so sad, I know you're pregnant","Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be, there's a husband standing over me" and many other very marginal numbers.

Clinton will be in Lexington in a week or two. Hope to get a chance to visit. I met him for over 40 years ago, With Bootsy.
