'Hey Good Lookin'

I've never heard the C.C. Deville version of 'Hey Good Lookin' before but I found it on YouTube last night! The song is on the Son In Law soundtrack. I've seen the movie but I can't recall this song at all. In case you're wondering, Spike from The Quireboys is singing, not C.C.

The video is batshit crazy, too. Seriously. I can't believe I've lived 34 years without seeing this clip before.

Wow ! The video is awesome (except image quality...)
C.C & Spike Rulez!

Hell yeah! Haven't heard this version in years! I completely forgot about it, but it's nice to hear it again. C.C.'s playing is not bad, but Spike absolutely sings his guts out.

It's almost unbelievable that any glam fan had not heard of this.

CC is in rough shape here.
Not long after he left Poison.

Band was initially called Needle Park, and included Kelly Hansen on vocals. Adam Hamilton was in there at one point too if I am not mistaken.Kelly bailed immediately and they flew Spike in there.

I went to this movie specifically to hear this track, and they play a few seconds of it although I cannot recall the scene at this moment.

Awesome! Another beautiful "Metal Correction", where a "just okay" song is fully "Metalized" and thusly, made so much better.

C.C. is so damned underrated as a player, it's ridiculous. And you're right, Bob! Spike just rips this up. Cool guy, too! Had the pleasure of having drinks with him on several occasions on The Monsters of Rock Cruise.

I remember this. Pretty awesome. I am shocked you never heard it.

@Mike Thats what I thought but didn't want to post yesterday because I wasn't sure but I thought this was done after Poison when C.C. was in a dark place...Didn't he do a song with Michael Monroe during that period as well?

Metalboy I agree I always thought C.C. caught too much crap and was way underrated as a guitar slinger.

@Shawn: I have never heard of CC / Michael Monroe working together, not to say it didn't happen...

MM did an album with Steve Stevens around then called Jerusalem Slim, however

Got that Jerusalem Slim album, Mike. I'm a huge fan of both Stevens and Monroe but I just gotta say that collaboration didn't do it for me like this or Stevens and Vince Neil on Neil's masterpiece of a solo album, "Exposed".

I figured out why this was barely a blip on my radar when it came out... I do recall seeing the video a few times on MTV but STUPIDLY not buying it as I was too busy foolishly drinking the Seattle Kool-Aid on 120 Minutes from 1994 until 1999, when it took "Lit Up" by Buckcherry to wake me up and bring me back to GLAM!

Wow Metalboy! This is a revelation! I had no idea that you went over to the dark side in the mid 90s. :) You really hit the nail on the head with Buckcherry. When their first album came out in '99, I was so thrilled that somebody was finally trying to put the fun and the swagger back in hard rock. I give them all the credit in the world for playing a style of music that really wasn't considered cool at the time.

Yes, Bob, Buckcherry saved my life with that one single song and I put my Pendletons in storage forever since.

And now I dedicate my life to Allyson's Cause Célèbre to Bring Back Glam! for all eternity!
