Can you imagine this? There was actually another band at the exact same time in southern California that called themselves The Surfari's and then when 'Wipe Out' hit the charts they changed their name to The Original Safari's. Now that would be a drag! HOWEVER, I would imagine that they got a great deal more attention as the public would perceive them to be the band that was listed on the charts. Regardless, I can't even imagine how upset I would be if tomorrow someone hit the charts as Netty Mac! You spend a great deal of time honing your craft, image, marketing and getting your music out to the peeps...all to have someone come along and take that image, name & branding? Yep - I would end up in a looney bin 4sure! lol lol
I like the Surfari's but I must confess that these boys don't come close to The Ventures version of their song. It ROCKS and I can't wait to showcase the amazing Mr. Greg Collins (My Drummer - I call him Master Gregee http://www.myspace.com/gregcollinsdrummer) in my show when he does as is done in this vid!
I am so very proud to update the Netty Mac Train now has: 25, 395 FANS in 120 Country's
Cheerz & have a HUGE day!!
