Here are some more thoughts from a demented mind in Central Florida:

Are you refering to "Gene Mean," or are you referring to Rick Derringer? (ba dump bump crash!)
And the screwed-up thing? This was on "Piledriver" from 1987... Side 2, and the track right after "Stand Back" by VKM. I was nuts enough to play this track once or twice on my high school radio show. But, as far as wrestling songs go, it's pretty good - I remember seeing this on Prime Time Wrestling, with Gorilla Monsoon chuckling after coming back from commercial and saying he thought it was "Great!" I forget what Bobby Heenan had to say about it.
(And yes, I realize that I have no life that I still remember the track order from side 2 of "Piledriver" without having to Google that shit. )
Why yes, I am both a musician and a lawyer. Thanks for asking. :)
"Did somebody say keep on rockin', Mean Gene?" has been of the many things I randomly say that I find hilarious but no one else understands for years now. I had honestly forgotten where it actually came from. Thank you for that.
Oh, yeah. Punk and Miz worked fantastically together, and the promo battle alone between the two would be fantastic in a feud. It helps they've got similar in-ring styles; they even both do unorthodox diving moves into the corner.
