(Note the writing credits on the next 45. The first names tied to them are Frank and Ray. The song is essentially a sequel to Earth Angel.)

Not limited to-

 

disappearing on team night before super bowl and no showing. Arrest. Drugs. Etc. 

 

He was diagnosed bi-polar I believe

That time Kyle Hicks scored 5 touchdowns and the Frogs dropped 62 on Baylor while their fans were all buying rape-enabler #CAB T-shirts in the parking lot

 

...and one bonus 62:

Phil Spector decided to bring in a particular session guitarist for this track. It was played by some guy in the #67 post...

And while Jimi would later get his chance to really shine, the real star of this 45 is the B side...

The splatter platter craze had to have hit the high water mark with this next tune. No other song killed teenagers as gracefully...

There have been no professional 60s for the Frogs, so I'll confusingly rectify some omissions of our first non-football professional Frogs ...

 

Omitted last Thursday ...
