My Three Monster Rockin' Harley Cruisin' Songs

Heavy Metal Harley!
Now Whatcha RIDIN'? and Now Whatcha Playin'? 

I'm playing three of my favorite songs which are PERFECT for cruising on a Harley. Before I get into it, I want to mention that the following songs can and shold be adapted for bikers:

  • No Holds Barred - Ted Nugent
  • Highway Star - Deep Purple
  • Low Rider - War
  • Legs - Z Z Topp
  • Movin' On - Bad Company

Just adjust the lyrics a bit to appeal to bikers worldwide, that's all.

Number One, never to be topped is . . .

Yes, Steppenwolf's MONSTER anthem: Born To Be Wild.

And second on my list is this song which is so exhilirating that you have drive or fly! Perfect for Hog owners!

Number Two . . . 
Maybe their music is more for musle cars but Deep Purple's Space Truckin' seems to fit the feeling of flying on a Harley through the Milky Way. (If only . . . ahhh)

Number Three . . . 
Then I made my own Harley tune and I can't stop listening to it either. 

Heavy Metal Harley by Rob Lattin Music - YEAH!!!
Here it is:



Classic Rock and Roll - Robin Trower Style

Well, it's not whatcha "playin'" today, it's Whatcha Readin'. And I just started reading Classic Rock Music Writer interview with legendary guitarist Robin Trower. 

I saw Robin Trower at the Arie Crown in Chicago back in the 80's. Here we are in this historic building and there is Robin Trower with his guitar effects pedals all lined up on a 2 X 4. Then he starts playing some unbelievable unearthly guitar sounds breaking into Too Rolling Stoned.

If the audio wasn't enough to draw you into a different realm, the visuals would. As Robin Played his leads and solos, laser lights was beamed at his guitar and bounced all over the stage and the audience. This was the best laser show I've ever seen and it was all improvised and spontaneous. Yet it was Robin's master of the note that kept everyone intrigued.

Well, Robin is still at it and still strong as ever. In this Classic Rock Music Writer interview he discusses his new album and his roots. Go there and check it out. Go here and share >>>> Classic Rock Music Writer Ray Shasho Interviews the Legendary Robin Trower

Side Note: I just discovered Ray's blog and now I want to read about all my guitar heroes! There is so much to check out!

I also did some web searching and found this interview on Guitar Life Magazine (July 20, 2009 by Adam St. James). Here is an answer which Robin gives the interviewer about digital recording:

St. James: How do you feel about that whole world of PC based recording?
Trower: It’s a good experimental place, you know. You can do things that you can’t do in analog. But, overall, I prefer working in analog because the sound is just better, you know. It sounds much more beefy, the real thing.
Robin hits the nail on the head. And so, I believe, as well as Robin might, that if digital can reach the same quality as tape, then the ultimate in recording is finally achieved.

Robot from Lost In Space Sings in Tribute

Here is a great video I discovered on You Tube from a tribute to the late Bob May (the Robot from TV's classic show Lost In Space). 

I like this very much as you get to see Bob May and the Robot. 

In this tribute, the Robot sings and engages in banter with Bob.

There is also a little show at the end of this video. The dialogue is between a robotic Dr Smith and the Robot and it is excellent. 

The voice impersonations are excellent and the adding of the music just tops it off.
