(Not) Too Pooped to Pop (School Day)

A performance from 2007, with his St. Louis band-- Jim Marsala, bass; Robert Lohr, keyboards; Keith Robinson (I think!), drums; and Charles Berry, Jr., guitar. (Marsala is also playing in the 1979 clips, below).

It may not have the energy of the 1957 version-- but dang-- he's 80 years old here!

When I saw him in St. Louis he got a bit lost during "School Day" and said "I forgot the second verse, but I can still play the mother!"

Yep, he can.
