4 guys live! no click, no loops, no extra players. raw, high energy ''un-fixed'' vocals. standing right in the middle of the band. loved the microphone pick-up at the beginning.

and the song was new, they did not have the advantage of hearing it for years. learn it today, play it tonight.

Always loved the way "The World's Most Dangerous Band" sounded like they had been backing up the featured vocalist for years.
Listen to how the band starts just locks in tight on the second verse.

Who's this band backing him in the video with Letterman? The only band I know Robert Palmer fronted was this one, the quintuplet sisters:

My current band covers "Bad case of loving you." I'm going to share this video and suggest this as another great song to cover.

I used to stay up partly just to watch that band, loved that show, when he got big the fun evaporated.

Just to balance the hate. I'm a pretty big Letterman fan. I can also understand why someone might not like him, but all that stuff you are reacting to doesn;t bother me. He publicly talked about all his personal issues and faults, which is a hell of a lot more than I can say about most people..
