So, ripping the scab of this thread, Gerry Roslie is the quintessential rock singer. For <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20S_kwNb4rg">this</a> reason, if nothing else.
I can live with that.

I mean, think about it, how many great rock and roll singers were not influenced by Mick Jagger? Not many.
Roslie was inspired by Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard: "I tended to like the people who went right over the top and just laid it all on the line without holding back. That impressed me."
The Sonics rule.

The musical switchup I could believe... but this video? He didn't have to sit by the pool, or pick up the white dog.
