The Beat Farmers

Here's another group I like that I'd never heard of until I found them while poking around YouTube. Evidently the band has something of a tragic history, the lead singer having died of a heart attack on stage during a performance.

Cool! I really enjoyed the track. Will have to check out their CD.

Dick Montana died of a heart attack while in the middle of a song. He was the drummer/vocalist not the frontman you see on this clip.

You're right, Steve. Thanks for pointing that out. Country Dick Montana was the lead singer on some of their other tracks but not on "Hollywood Hills".

I saw these guys in a bar several years ago -- before I was married, so must have been 15 or more years. Great, great fun to watch and listen to this very entertaining band. Thanks for the memory, James.
