between two covers of hard rock anthems.
Both covers were performed by the same
artist, Jean-Christophe Duvivier, known to
first video, Jean-Christophe and his band
covered "Nobody's Fool," originally waxed
by my homeboys, Cinderella, the glam rock
band from Philadelphia. In the second vid,
AC/DC, those rough and rowdy rockers
from Australia. Voters picked the
that reads as follows:
I threw up in my mouth a little. AC/DC and Cinderella are two of my favorite bands. In 2013 they and other hard rock and heavy metal faves competed for Band of the Year in my First Annual Shady Awards. I'm a sucker for glam bands and Cinderella came out on top in that competition. On his YouTube channel, Jean-Christophe does a fine job of imitating the grandiose style of Ronnie James Dio. In this BOTB, Jean-Christophe gave "Nobody's Fool" a similar treatment, summoning all his passion and fire and executing a killer Keifer kover. It was a very tough decision but "Nobody's Fool," one of my favorite 80s power ballads, won my vote by a hair... one very long hair.
Back to you, Barry.
how the vote went down.
see which cover rules.
all you peeps who voted for "Nobody's Fool."
"Live Wire" staged an impressive late week rally
but "Nobody's Fool" held on to win by 3 votes.
Now this is Barry Goldberg, the new, improved,
undisputed king of all media, saying ciao for now.
