Who Will Save Rock n' Roll?




In 1998 Jack & the Beanstalk toured Europe. It seemed that every rock n' roll club in Madrid was playing this song by New York proto-punk legends, the Dictators.

We learnt it when we got home and it's been part of our live set ever since. This was recorded completely 'live' in the studio. Listen carefully to final solo where kevin broke a string and just kept playing.

RIP Richie Teeter

I fall to my knees and look to the sky Who will save rock and roll?
Murray The K is not here today so who will save rock and roll?
Every protest singerevery guitar slinger every punk rock sinner sells his soul

My generation is not the salvation so who will save rock and roll
I saw The Stooges, covered with bruises who will save rock and roll?
Every mercenary three chord revolutionaries choose your side and choose it well

June 1st, 67 something died and went to heaven I wish
Sgt Pepper never taught the band to play
My generationis not the salvation so who will save,who will save tell me who will save rock and...... roll
