The Jackyl shirt

I was reminded of this story when I saw that Jackyl were playing at Rocklahoma. I have not been to that many concerts, but I was lucky enough to see Aerosmith twice in 1994. The second time was in Louisville, Kentucky and Jackyl were the opener. They got a huge ovation, but I thought they were very average. Anyway all of my friends loved Jackyl and one of them bought a shirt that said "Jackyl me off" on the back. A few days later at college another guy we knew saw my friend's shirt and said "You would look more intelligent if you wore a "kick me" sign on your back". I thought it was funny.

I certainly won't argue with the wisdom of the guy who made fun of your friend!

Louisville, Kentucky is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.

I have not ever been a big fan of Jackyl. The used to play a ton in Cincinnati, and I have seen them a few times. The whole chainsaw schtick was kind of cool, but as a whole, they are not one of my favorites. They do have a few good songs though.

AHAHAHAHAH!!! Jackyl! Those guys were great... A song I still get a kick out of (not on this album I think) was the Chainsaw song... crazy!

Good one!

Jackyl is a fun band to listen to sometimes--Down on Me is a good rock song--but I can't get more than about halfway through one of the group's albums before I need to put something else on.

That said, it would be fun to wear that shirt around and see what people say!

that's hilarious!

I actually have the first Jackyl album. Will it survive CD Shelf Cleanup? Hmmmm....

Ray, for your sake, I hope not!

Ray, hold on to it because I may want to borrow it for "Lesser of two evils" some time soon.

Is there another band with a power tool gimmick that you could match them up with?

No, their opponent will just be in terms of being generic.

That's a pretty broad field to choose from in that time period.
