I don’t think I can come up with the words to describe what NRBQ means to me (they’ve been broken up for years now, and I still can’t bring myself to use the past tense).   So we want to note the recent passing of not one, but two key players in the NRBQ saga: co-founder and original lead guitarist Steve Ferguson, and one-time manager Captain Lou Albano.  At the risk of disturbing the peace we dearly hope these two gentlemen are resting in, we post in genuine loving tribute our stab at NRBQ’s classic “Captain Lou,” yanked from our Yo La Tengo Is Murdering the Classics.
