Music Video

I’m not a fan of music videos. Normally I wouldn’t waste time on a rap video. But the video at the link below has a certain attraction. It’s got a good beat… Is it inappropriate to use that old music term, “Number 1 with a bullet?”

A thug and rapper was holding court on line when somebody walked up and shot his ass. He was so busy taking a selfie he didn’t see it coming. This is kind of a good news, bad news thing. Indian Red Boy isn’t going to be around to collect royalties. That’s never stopped the record labels. Think back to some of the greatest hits of yesteryear.

  • Otis Redding, “The Dock of the Bay”
  • Janis Joplin, “Pearl”
  • Jimmy Hendrix, “The Cry of Love”
  • Lowell George, “Down on the Farm”
  • Dwayne Allman, “Eat A Peach”

    None of these musicians were alive to see the result of their last recording session. Here is a more complete list.

Indian Red Boy is one up on the rest. His swan song really was his swan song. I guess he went out with a bang, bang-bang, bang!
