Terry Anderson (w/ The Olympic Ass-Kickin' Team) "Killin' Down In Dillon" (Bonus Video Friday)

The High Concept for Bonus Video Friday this month will be "The Four Best Chuck Berry Songs That Chuck Berry Forgot To Write."  My high-school best friend & bandmate, Dave Blackburn - the person who taught me more about rock & roll than any other individual on the planet - originally coined the phrase "The Fill-in-a-Number Best Fill-in-a-Songwriter Songs That Fill-in-the-Same-Songwriter Forgot To Write."  I believe it might have initially been in reference to "The Five Best Bob Dylan Songs That Bob Dylan Forgot To Write" and included The Jimi Hendrix Experience's "The Wind Cries Mary" and Mott The Hoople's "Backsliding Fearlessly," among three others, I'm sure you get the idea.

ps. Terry Anderson & the Olympic Ass-Kickin' Team are one of the five best live bands that you've never seen.

inspirational verse; "When she went into her bedroom and discovered she was missin' /
She grabbed her sawed-off shotgun and a box of ammunition /
She said, 'If they tie the knot, there'll be a killin' down in Dillon /
If they tie the knot, there'll be a killin' down in Dillon'" - Terry Anderson, 2001
