Bang, Zoom, Crazy… Hello
After 40 years and 16 albums, founding Cheap Trick members Robin Zander, Tom Petersson, and Rick Nielsen (whose son, Daxx, fills in on drums) keep doing what they do best—sticking close to their ‘60s rock foundation and exceeding fans’ expectations. The first three Bang, Zoom, Crazy…Hello songs are pure Cheap Trick—all meaty, power-pop glory, Zander in fine vocal form and Nielsen reinforcing his stature as one of rock’s most consistently entertaining guitarists. “Blood Red Lips” is equipped with hearty T Rex touches. “The ‘In’ Crowd” is a supple Ramsey Lewis cover. By maintaining status quo, Bang, Zoom, Crazy…Hello has the elements and personality of a Cheap Trick classic for a new generation.
