Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick

I don’t know why but these afternoon I remembered Ian Dury. He was an English rock and roll singer, bandleader, artist and artist who intitially rose to fame during the late 1970s, during the punk and New Wave area. He’s best known as founder and lead singer of the Blockheads. Still can remember when this small and handicapped man hit the stage, telling us songs about sex and drugs and rock and roll. He also combined funk with his punk attitude. Great songs, great sound – worth to remember him. He was awesome and died too early in 2000. His first record will have his place in history forever. His influence might be shown as Robbie Williams covered his ‘Sweet Gene Vincent’.
