Heh, nice! Patton and the boys could always pull off the unexpected cover toon. I saw them a couple of times in '91 or so and loved when he would slip the Nestles' theme into one of their toons...and it worked. "Nestles makes the very best, N E S T L E S..."
If you ever saw a Mr. Bungle show...there was plenty of this...he did Stroke by Billy Squire in odd time signatures sped up, then slowed down at the show I went to. They also did Alan Parsons Project Time...great stuff and always an entertainer.
I came home drunk during the college days and this was on Leno....
I didn't know whether to laugh or go into shock over how awesome it was...even Jay looked to be in a little shock after they did Midlife Crisis as the first song...total opposite song, I had to nail the solo after watching it....
That guy is pure velvet. Could have been the Biggest/Best Lounge/Vegas singer ever........!!!!!!
So I had to look for Midlife Crisis. I can hear Jay-"uh,hey...great job, guys."
We played (Chris Cornell band) in Sweden with them on a festival around this time- Mike, in that red suit, wheeled himself onstage in a wheelchair, and sang "Reunited", then he stood up and kicked the chair away, haha it was an awesome set! I'd never seen them. I came away a fan.
Afterwards, yogi (my co-guitarist in the band) got in the wheelchair and started to do freakishly good tricks like wheelies and whatnot, much to the surprise of Mike and myself. Good times
I just posted that video of "Reunited" on my FB yesterday! Love Mike!
Yogi is playing with you? I haven't talked to him in ages. Tell him Wil says 'heya'.
Well, I'll say it again. This guy is Pure Velvet........
He is touring his Mondo Cane album of Italian pop songs this year. I hope I can catch a performance. If you are a Mike Patton fan and have not heard that album it is awesome.
I remember them playing Easy from that night totally straight except for the small grin at the end. Totally perfect in the vein of the original with no joke no irony. Wish I had seen them play Midlife Crisis. That is a killer tune on a killer CD.
Oh wow, how did I overlook this project of his. U know if he's doing a US tour? Or did I already miss it?
I forgot how cool Mike Patton is, a super talent. I must get some Faith No More
