Human Cannonball

Via Instapundit comes the following, rare, video of Webb Wilder's Human Cannonball, a taut, tough-as-nails Southern rocker from the Eighties with the style's characteristic satirical edge.

I saw Webb Wilder and the BeatNecks live at the first Sloss Furnace KudzuFest in Birmingham, back in the day. They were headlining with Guadalcanal Diary. What a show.

The highlight was both bands coming together to play a slow-grind version of Johnny B. Goode. Whew.

And don't forget to live by Webb Wilder's credo:
Work hard
Rock hard
Eat hard
Sleep hard
Grow big
Wear glasses if you need 'em
