[listening to a mystery tape with Dave that sounds like Eddie singing]
It's a pretty good imitation of Eddie. Who is it?
When we reacquired the Season in Hell album, we found another totally unrelated tape in the box... a mystery tape. This tape.

A 'must see' film for anyone into Rock 'n' Roll, especially players!
Along with 'Eddie and the Cruisers' and 'Streets of Fire', Michael Paré performs in three of the greatest Rock 'n' Roll movies of all time! Eddie's comments and examples of how to play with feeling and how to 'swing' are some of the best ever. Anyone who aspires to play serious electric music should see these films, along with everyone who loves Rock and Roll and/or grew up in the '50s and '60s. Since it is a sequel film, Eddie II is sometimes passed over by afficionados, but don't let that fool you.
Have a weekend with Michael Paré and rent all three--you'll love 'em!
