News Music and Oxen: Barry Manowar
posted by April 8 at 13:35 PMon
Barry Manilow has joined the New York metal band Manowar for a string of select Las Vegas engagements. They will call the project Barry Manowar.
The anesthesiologist for Manilow’s latest facelift said Barry wasn’t coping well with the nitrous oxide used in the procedure. Hours after the operation, Manilow was wandering the hospital halls looking for Zima and the deceased author Raymond Carver. Buried in face wrapping and gauze, Manilow was reportedly screaming, “Carvy!! Where are you Carvy?” when he ran into Manowar bassist Joey DeMaio in a waiting room. They spoke briefly, said, “Let’s do this,” and Barry Manowar was formed.
Manowar’s lyrics deal with mythology, fantasy, war, and swords. Barry Manowar’s first song will be a reworking of “Copacabana” called “Copacakilling”.
Lola’s not a showgirl anymore, she’s Thor. And her lover Tony isn’t a bartender at the club, he’s a sacrificial ox.
“Music and oxen were always the passion / At the Copa, they fell in love.”
