Whoa George HW’s street cred has hit a whole new level with this! He is now at Level 1.

These artists must have been promoting a new album to do such a thing. Bush #1?

Every musician is absolutely energized like I have never seen. Bo Diddley is jamming like he was shot out of a cannon. The room must have been without air conditioning as the frail musicians sweated their muscle away. This is a great film and looks like a serious party went down.
