"What are you guys gonna do, the same act? You wear the same verkakte suits? You'll scare people away. Don't you ever wear blue jeans or jump suits, like Wayne Cochran and the C.C.Riders?"

So, we can now add Wayne Cochran to the band in heaven this week so we have someone from Soul, Bubblegum Pop, Country, Jazz, and Metal. Yup, definitely a weird band.

Saw Wayne and the CC Ryders at a lounge in Vegas. High-energy soul n roll with a huge horn section.  Almost stole the show from the headliner,,,The Ike and Tina Turner Revue.

I'm familiar.
Using the word "legend" where it doesn't apply dilutes the meaning of the word.
