  • Don't know if there are any NRBQ fans out there, but NRBQ's Terry Adams was on the TV-38 New Year's marathon and talked Stooges for a bit.

  • Thanks for finding that!
    That was actually from last year's marathon (end of 2009). I posted about it here at that time, but was not recording it. So it's nice to see this again and to hear those two songs that Terry Adams performed.

  • I will now be looking for that CD flashed during the interview. As others at this site may have noticed, I collect weird musical %$&^%$ and this sounds like a jewel.
    The tacks won't come out! Well, they went in ... maybe they're income tacks.

  • Maybe Terry Adams was only joking and he knows the 3 Stooges did not originate the song, but did someone on another thread point out “The Music Goes Round and Round is actually from a Columbia movie of the same name released in the 1930s?  I do like the Terry Adams version.

  • Thought I would use my current obsession with NRBQ as an excuse to revive this thread. I've totally fallen in love [figuratively!] with this band over the last few months, but with a great amount of guilt: I consider myself pretty musically knowledgeable [knowing a lot about rock, and a little about jazz, blues, country, and other genres] but for reasons totally mysterious to me, somehow I let the wonderful music of this group fly under my radar until recently. I don't even have most people's excuse, which is "I never heard of them until now". On the contrary, I've known about them since the mid-'80's, due to their then-association with Captain Lou Albano [their one-time "manager"], and in fact, I actually bought their "Lou and the Q" album back then. That LP was kind of a slapdash thrown-together effort, released during a time when NRBQ was not allowed to record for legal reasons [search the internet for details], and at that point, I concluded that NRBQ was a novelty/comedy band, with no "good" or "legit" music to their credit. Boy was I wrong! And I can credit the Stooges for opening the door for me: A few years ago while online, I saw somewhere [I thought it was this message board, but can't find any search results to prove it] that NRBQ recorded a version of "The Music Goes Round" [from HALF-SHOT SHOOTERS]. Knowing what I knew about them, it didn't surprise me that they would record a song like that. I went to YouTube, and was absolutely blown away by their version, and from there, proceeded to check out a lot more of their stuff. Some I thought was "so-so", some I liked, and some I absolutely loved. From then, I occasionally re-visited them on YouTube up until last summer, when I noticed that most of the clips featuring songs from their studio albums [which had been uploaded by a variety of people in varying quality] had been removed. I wondered what happened, and a few months ago I got my answer. I searched again, and this time, I was delighted to see an "official" NRBQ YouTube channel, with many [but not all] of their albums posted in their entirety. This opened the floodgates for me: Over the last few months, I've been in the process of getting all their studio albums on CD [but downloading a few rare ones where the CDs are out-of-print and very expensive], and will eventually buy all of their "live" CDs and DVDs as well. Yep, it took over 30 years, but I am finally an official "Q-Head"!!! And now, thanks to the YouTube uploads, I'm going to share a few Stooge-related NRBQ songs, two of which appear in live versions on their WSBK New Years Stooge-a-Thon appearance:

    First is something from their second album, in 1970, "Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard":



    Next is the aforementioned "Music Goes Round and Round" from 1980:



    After the original NRBQ ended in 2004, co-founder Terry Adams [who in the '70's visited with Larry in person and spoke to Moe on the phone!] formed the Terry Adams Rock and Roll Quartet, which in 2011 became a new version of NRBQ. This band released the song "A Girl Who Loves the Stooges":



    I think you'll enjoy these, and while you're there, check out some of their other music. You probably won't enjoy everything [since they play such a wide variety of genres], but for that same reason, I can almost guarantee you'll find something you'll love. Long live NRBQ and Terry Adams!!!
