RIP Jack Ely (of the Kingsmen) 1943 – 2015

You’ve probably heard the song too many times, “Louie, Louie” the famous three chord song by the Kingsmen. You’ve probably heard it on the radio, at dance parties like wedding receptions and I’m sure many cover bands have played it at bar gigs too many times.

The founder and lead singer of the Kingsmen, Jack Ely just passed at 71 years old. A sad loss in the music industry. Thanks Jack! I’m a huge fan of this song and like the Kingsmen too!
