Bad Bad Boy

Shot Of The Day: February 18, 2018





QOTD: I’m a bad bad boy and I’m gonna steal your love.
— Dan McCafferty
[click here to view full size image]

Backstory: OK, here’s the deal: my friend is camera shy and shy in general. But he’s a real sweetheart. He’s gonna steal somebody’s love – he’s a rocker (and a DJ).

Locale: Tell Mama – this is Tompkinsville.

Equipment: Nikon D7000 / AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED

 

The first time I heard this song I was driving down US 1 in Fort Lauderdale. The car only had AM radio so I was stunned when Nazareth erupted from the tinny speakers. A while back Dan McCafferty had to retire from touring for health reasons (COPD) but I’m hoping he still has an album or two in him. Here’s Nazareth, 30 years after Bad Bad Boy became a hit, still ripping it up: www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9J1RIYFGts
