How can you not root for a guy who sings “I guess I’m f—ing 40/That’s what my mamma said/But Bruce Springsteen’s f—ing 53/And the Stones are almost dead”? John Eddie had his 15 minutes in the mid-’80s, when his blue-collar, Jersey-based roots rock caught the ears of Columbia Records. The results were two LPs that went nowhere, despite a friendship with the aforementioned 53-year-old. Who the Hell is a helluva second act, full of songs that play footsie with cliche and make her shine like a honky-tonk angel, e.g., the twangy “Let Me Down Hard” (a perfect riff on breakup pathology) and the self-explanatory “S—hole Bar.” CLASSIC ROCK BLUES The strangely beautiful “Play Some Skynyrd” is the sound of a bar-band lifer converting biker-dude hecklers into true believers.
