Maybe Going Shirtless Wasn't Such a Good Idea

I like Telly Savalas. I'm a fan of his television and film work, and even like his music, so I mean no disrespect... but what the hell? This is just wrong.

The band claims they weren't completely nude - they had jeans on. But given that even their name is a lie (they're from Buffalo not Orleans), can they be trusted?

Well, let's hope that at least one one of them is trustworthy considering the man in the center is John Hall of the 19th Congressional District of New York.

For other horrible examples of album cover manscaping, go here (if you dare).

Thanks for the Orleans pictures and info what's the point?

Here's a little story for you before you go:

Once upon a time there was a timid young lad named Herbie Mann. He wore glasses, played the flute, and released nice albums like Yardbird Suite....

.... then the 1970's arrived and Herbie grew up. He ditched the glasses, made albums about sex, and turned his flute into a giant phallus.

The end.


  1. These guys should never be caught shirtless. Yikes! I've been a fan of Telly since I can remember. Never wanted to see that image of him. lol

  2. I dunno, Herbie Mann sort of looks creepier in that first picture

  3. keith- Sorry to disturb you like that. The image of a shirtless Savalas is forever burned on my retina, and I guess I just wanted folks to share in the pain.

    willy- Creepier, maybe. But a lot less oily.

  4. wow, thanks for the blidget thing. i was skimping down and and saw it and it was so cool. it wokrs faster on your site than mine. i was forced into using your blidget because for some reason your RSS feds have stopped on the side bar. says no feed found. but i can see you in my google and bloglines reader which come in handy when i cannot connect to site directly from china). at fisrt your blidget did nto appear but after a day it seems to be okay... i also cannot get thr RRS for keith at the dino Lounge... so will probably make a banner, but i love that feed so i can see when a new post has been added.
