Before there was American Dog, there was Salty Dog

Long before our boy Michael Hannon put together kick azz American Dog, he played bass in Salty Dog a band that came in at the tail end of the hair band era. I couldn't escape Come Along (the closest thing Salty Dog had to a hit)one Spring in college. Even got to witness a chick strip to it one night at a seedy club near campus. The video quality is terrible but the audio is ok. So turn it up loud and enjoy the simple brilliance of Come Along by Salty Dog.

The $75,000 paperweight as Hannon calls it. Geffen shelved this video and it never saw the light of day on the video outlets. Interesting story behind it, pretty much stopped any momentum for Salty Dog.

This song got a decent amount of air play on the old Blitz in Columbus. I thought the singer had a pretty decent Ac/Dcish voice. From what I understand, and I'm sure you have the full story, but the singer (his name escapes me and I'm too lazy to google it) had some issues, as most lead singers do.

Record there anything they won't screw up?
