The Kingsmen Cover of “Louie Louie” Was Investigated By the FBI For 2 Years
One of the strangest stories in the history of rock n’ roll was THE KINGSMEN cover of “Louie Louie.” The song has been covered thousands of times, but THE KINGSMEN version is probably the best known version along with MOTORHEAD’s. The song was originally written by Richard Berry a rhythm and blues musician in 1955 and covered by THE KINGSMEN in 1963. The lyrics frightened parents so much the FBI started to investigate the song. Check out the story in our video below!

EDDIE TRUNK Discusses Phone Call With AEROSMITH’s JOEY KRAMER
Fashionista and radio host, EDDIE TRUNK recently revealed on his SiriusXM Show “Trunk Nation” that AEROSMITH drummer JOEY KRAMER privately called him and wanted to discuss why he isn’t currently playing with the band. He said the following:
story continued below…
A week and a half ago JOEY[KRAMER] called me personally and asked me to come on my volume show where he wanted to discuss and reveal what was going on. Although that would have been a great radio moment for me, I also care about the guy and wanted to give him the opportunity to really think about it before he went off about the situation. So I suggested to JOEY KRAMER that he wait through the weekend and through the Grammys and see how he felt on the other side of that before he went public on a national radio show and he agreed that was a good idea. Since then we know that Joey showed up at both events but did not play.
I have reached out to Joey and told him now if he’d like to come on and say something given that he went to the events and how he feels about it I would welcome to come on the show and give his thoughts. I have yet to hear from him about it. My understand is AEROSMITH either started up or about to start up doing the Vegas thing again. My understanding is in speaking to some people backstage at MusicCares that they were gonna give Joey another chance to rehearse with them while they were in Vegas and if they felt that he was playing at a level capable enough to play a full show then he would rejoin the band. If they didn’t feel he was up to par and unable to play a full show I guess they would figure it out from there.
