IT'S LOUIE LOUIE DAY!
It's true. Today is International Louie Louie Day, and since this is Davy's second favorite song. we're celebrating.
Why today? Well, mainly because April 11 is the birthday of Richard Berry, the esteemed author of the song. For lots more on Louie Louie Day, and lots more on all things Louie Louie, click HERE.
I, of course, have many favorite versions of the song, but my top two at the moment are the screamers below, by the Sonics and Iggy Pop. First, though, a little history lesson, which features me banging on my guitar (but not singing - that's the multi-talented Drew Bentley of Omaha, NE).
