Dunno if you watched Saturday Night Live last weekend, but if you did you couldn't help but notice that the show is working on an uninterrupted two year streak of musical guests (with the noticeable exception of Foo Fighters) who have no redeeming virtues whatsoever.
The most recent miscreant: James Bay.
In the immortal words of Leonard Pinth-Garnell -- "thoroughly bad."
Seriously, it's like watching Laurence Harvey fronting the world's lamest rock band.
I should add that I had never heard (or heard of) Bay before Saturday, so I looked him up and learned that he had recently done a cover of Tom Petty's great "Kings Highway" on the soundtrack to Cars 3. And I figured, well, you couldn't possibly do a bad version of that song, so maybe I should listen to it and cut him some slack.
Well, it turns out that yeah -- you CAN do a bad version of that song.
Jeebus, but that kid sucks. And he isn't even the worst one SNL's had on in memory.
