Huey Lewis is a national treasure and should be treated as suchNovember 20, 2007
Renal Failure doesn’t take up many causes, because we hate the human race as a whole. But on occasion we find something that we can behind.
So when Diesel over at Mattress Police and Humor-Blogs.com decided to take up the fight to get Huey Lewis and the News played in regular rotation on classic rock radio stations across the country, we heard the call to action.
Huey Lewis and the News should be afford the same classic rock rights as REO Speedwagon and Night Ranger, if indeed those bands have been given classic rock rights. But even so, Huey Lewis and the News has a brass section, just like Chicago, and that should be all the classic rock credit Huey needs to get his classic rock degree.
Is it because there are no five minute jam sessions in the middle of any Huey Lewis songs, like how you can get up during Riders on the Storm, have a three-flush bowel movement, and still get back before Jim Morrison starts singing again? Huey apologizes for not wanting to waste people’s precious time (he doesn’t really, Huey is being sarcastic).
Is it because Huey doesn’t fill up large sections of his albums with ambient sound and weird sound effects like your precious Pink Floyd? Sorry, but Huey has things to say to his listeners and doesn’t care if his music doesn’t go well with multiple bong hits.
What you deny Huey, he has already earned. You just don’t know it yet.
