Forgotten Heroes Of Rock And Roll: Andre "Mr. Rhythm" Williams

"Jailbait" and "Bacon Fat" are around on CD compilations in their original, early Sixties form, and they're great, great, great. Andre was a musical Jack Of All Trades and sometimes recording artist. He never left the scene, as witnessed by this video recorded in Germany in 2006. It's the bomb, the intro alone is worth the price:

Andre did great work with the Gories, and there are a lot of great new Andre Williams cuts out there. Check out "Pussy Stank, But So Do Marijuana," also on YouTube. Look for "The Black Godfather" for true enjoyment.
