Man, that last band ... if you'll recall, Jackyl had many of the trademarks of '80s hair metal going for it. Only problem was their debut album came out in 1992 and spawned the novelty hit "Lumberjack" which features the most famous chainsaw solo in the history of rock. Needless to say, it was a short day in the sun for them.
But you know what? In honor of what's sure to be a triumphant set this weekend, we're just gonna post the "Lumberjack" music video and step away from the keyboard.
Enjoy yourself some melodic chainsaw before you point your hog toward Piercy and/or check out the rest of Friday's Lowdown farther down.
