Most people know somebody that had crazy tacked-on to their name, making them respected, ridiculed and/or feared! I wonder if Crazy Horse was really angry about his name and therefore lashed out his inner aggressions? Well I don't really think about it that often, but J.D. Blackfoot obviously did and starts our craziness. More therapy follows fast in the form of Wayne Shorter, 999, The Afghan Whigs, Gnarls Barkley, Ann Peebles, Medicine Head, Bloodrock, Climax Blues Band and Streetwalkers! Shine on you.....
