It's Friends of Mine Week: Special From Jersey It Came Edition

Going to see the incomparable Smithereens tonight at B.B. King's.

Which will probably be the zillionth time I've seen those guys in a club, but this is obviously a good thing. Especially as original bassist Mike Mesaros will be rejoining the band for the show.

That's him on the right of course. He was always the 'Reen with the most teen appeal.

Well, with the possible exception of drummer Dennis Diken, seen here back in the day with some asshole whose name rhymes with Sleeve Nimels.

Meanwhile, have I mentioned that, on top of everything else, The Smithereens are the greatest cover band of all time?

Have a great weekend everybody!

Not only a great band, but some of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.
Have a good time!

Good cover of the Outsiders' classic tune. That descending riff is sublime. Love the hard rocking Smivvereens too.

One of these days I'm gonna put together a mix-tape (if that's what their called anymore) of the Reens best covers, going back to their version of the Beach Boys "Girl Don't Tell Me."

And last night I posted "A Girl Like You" on Facebook. Coincidence?

Steve-I can save you the trouble of doing a mixtape. There is an itunes collection of their cover songs.
