Twanging Tuesday # 5

Today’s song comes from Johnny Kidd & The Pirates maybe the best Rock ‘n’ Roll band from Great Britain in these days. He’s the one who gave us Shaking All Over a number one worldwide. Influenced by early Elvis Presley he became the leading figure in British Rock ‘n’ Roll maybe because he didn’t try to copy him. Please Don’t Touch was his first single and sadly not his biggest hit. For me it is nearly the perfect rock song ever. It has everything a rock song should have: short and compact, a hookline, entreated lyrics and a good guitar.

And Lemmy also know how good this song is. He made the definitely cover version:
