I knew that the apocalypse was upon upon us way back in 1972.
It was a horrible year; Watergate, Vietnam War, Munich Massacre at the Olympics, and to top it all off the first hand held calculator was introduced, but what really put me over the top was the release of the song Crazy Horses by the Osmonds!
Now I certainly never thought that there would be FIVE 'zany' Horsemen of the Apocalypse..nor did I suspect that they would be dressed in vintage 'Vegas' Elvis jumpsuits!
At first I thought that these squeaky-clean Mormons had got into the Sugar..
maybe they had broken the cardinal rule and drank some Coffee and their madcap antics were the result of freaking out on a caffeine buzz?!
Judging by the pandemonium onstage they were totally out of control..
and talk about Attack Of The Clones!
Jay's playing the empty Drum Kit by telepathy???? and doing a frenetic, Jaggeresque 'bird dance'
Wayne, who is about 7'4", is eerily channeling Jimmy Page
Merrill is shredding his vocal chords and somehow outscreaming McCartney's Woman Oh Why! Why! Why!
and Donny is beatin' on the keyboards like it owed him money!
It's as if the whole world going completely mad?
Throughout my school years I had to live in the shadow of Donny (sigh)...
I was a moptopped 'Donny' only 3 days older than the Tiger Beat hearthrob..
oh if only I had a nickel for every "Look it's Donny Osmond" taunting I'd be a gazillionaire!
If you are brave enough you can watch the video here..
What if the Osmonds had completely crossed over to the Dark Side and started speed thrash metal? What if Donny changed his name to Ozzy Osmond?
I shudder to think what might have happened
Before I forget, now that Hollywood Icon Charlton Heston has passed away, I wonder if some 'damn dirty ape' will be brave enough to go and try to take his gun from his cold, dead, hand?
