I really like the band Fastway. I'm pretty sure "Say What You Will" is one of the single best rock songs ever recorded. Fastway's history is long and complicated and intertwines with some of the biggest bands in Metal including Motorhead and UFO. There is no point in my going over that winding history - just click here to read and learn.
Now, for the videos. Of course I've included "Say What You Will." While Fastway are more of a traditional Metal band, there are some clear Glam elements in this clip, especially Dave King's hair and the super skin-tight pants on the video vixens. Watch and enjoy.
*Note: many of you probably know the band Flogging Molly. They are not really my cup of tea, buy former Fastway singer Dave King handles the vocal duties for Flogging Molly now - and they are enjoying quite a bit of success in the punk arena. Good for them I say!
Even more entertaining is the video for "All Fired Up." Yes, there are race suits. Yes, there are (more) skin-tight white pants. Yes, this clip rocks. Watch for yourself.
Finally, I have to include the clip "The World Waits for You." We'll call this a "semi" power ballad. I'm pretty sure Bonham "borrowed" the video concept - or at least the staging - a few years later to support the similarly titled song "Wait for You." Coincidence? I guess the world may never know.
***Of the three videos posted, which is your favorite and why? I am still sticking with "Say What You Will" as my favorite because - at least for me - that song sums up classic Fastway. I can't wait to hear your responses.
In a perfect world, Fastway would be the last TBA added to the Rocklahoma line-up. I am not holding my breath.
