Your Friday Moment of Words Fail Me: Special "Hello Girls" Edition

So there's this Facebook group I follow that's devoted to getting early 70s all gal band Fanny into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. I've been kind of agnostic about it, because back in the day I wasn't crazy about them. I thought they were good musicians and obviously talented, but they didn't do it for me, and I was of the opinion that if they were guys nobody would have given a shit.

I actually reviewed one of their better albums for CREEM, and needless to say, I would have been run out of town if I had written this now.

That said, I stumbled across this clip on YouTube today and had my tiny mind blown.

These babes kicked serious ass.

Have a great weekend, everybody!!!

Home Run on "Famny", Steve.
Love that the Lead Guitar is wearing my
Grandmothers Crocheted Vest... ;-)
Damn she is a good slide player.
That shows a confidence that some of her peers lack.
"Ain't That Peculiar"...Marvin Gay/Cropper?
