I-95 Drive Home Mystery Artist [VIDEO]
Tonight’s mystery artist’s biggest hit to their credit was the cover of an Ian Hunter song that their manager made them record. Can you guess who they might be or the song their manager insisted they record??
I found this information in Guitar World when they interviewed Mark Kendall of Great White. The Ian Hunter song their manager accurately predicted as a big hit for them was ‘Once Bitten Twice Shy’ Mark marvels in the interview on how the song went on for so long and opened doors for them to tour with bands like The Scorpions, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden.
The song made it to #1 on MTV and is of course tonight's featured song.
Here is Ian Hunter's original. I think it is safe to say that Great White did for Ian's song what Manfred Mann's Earth Band did for Blinded By The Light for Springsteen. Watch and see if you don't agree.
