A Tribute to Jack Ely of The Kingsmen

I was sad to hear of the death of Jack Ely of the Kingsmen today. Best known for their cracking 1963 hit Louie Louie I thought it fitting to post it here.

For some reason the FBI investigated the song for "obscenity", I have no idea why. Interestingly despite being the lead vocalist on the record it was only after a legal battle that this was actually attributed to him as he had walked out the band before the song had become a hit.

Still a classic number all the same.
