Video: Acetone “All for the Love of a Girl” (Johnny Horton Cover)
I don’t know how many of our readers indulged in some sort of New Years festivities over the weekend. Let’s just say that my decision making on Saturday night led to a hangover of mammoth proportions. My Sunday was spent on the couch, doing my best to rehydrate and combat occasional bouts of nausea. Days like these are designed for easy listening. Fortunately, I found just the type of auditory healing my aching temples were yearning for.
Acetone was a little known LA-based alt rock band that put out a handful of releases between 1993 and 2000. They achieved moderate success and a cult following before lead singer Richie Lee’s suicide in 2001. Below is a video for Acetone’s cover of 50’s rockabilly star Johnny Horton’s “All for the Love of a Girl.” The video showcases the band’s mellow, southern California vibe and the intense delivery of their troubled lead singer. Enjoy.
