Unlike George Harrison, The Spiders' Guitarist Can Actually Play A Little. Other Than That, It's A Tie For Best Performance Of Day Tripper
When I was younger and lived in LA, there were always ads in the indie papers looking for bands that would be willing to go and work in Japan. It really didn't matter if you were any good, if you were willing to go, and could play rock music, they'd take you. It was considered a last resort, and paid that way, too.
This is the legacy of sending only desperate --and desperately bad -- rock bands to Japan.
