Now this would be a cover song to die for...



Anyone who's followed skippy since at least Joe Biden said to Barack Obama, "This is a big f@$k!* deal" knows I'm a half-crazy King Crimson fan. So...

I was listening to the tune above, and I thought, Bill Rieflin was with the band Ministry at the time (early '90s), and now he's one of the three or four drummers with King Crimson today.

Yes. That band has at least three drummers in its lineup. I saw them at the Orpheum in '95 when they had but two -- louder than pandemonium as they were then, imagine three of them now. Good Lord!

I couldn't sit in any hall they play at these days. I have a fair case of tinnitus I live with 24/7 -- not entirely sure it's the fault of loud music, but why make it any worse?

My point is, I can't help wondering, what if King Crimson, circa today,  were to cover "Jesus Built My Hot Rod"?

I think, if I heard that, I would die one clearly happy mockingbird Jim...
