  • Sam Kinison's third album, 1990s Leader of the Banned, was the comedian's last before dying two years later in a car crash. The first half of the album features a half-hour of standup comedy recorded at Bally's in Las Vegas, NV. "Jerry's Bastard Kid" offers a few chuckles when Kinison brings out Doug Bady, a member of his "Outlaws of Comedy" entourage, to criticize Jerry Lewis' annual MDA telethons for their lack of results. "Casual Users of Terrorism" offers a few tantalizing political remarks. On "Phone Call from Hell," Kinison supposedly places a real call to berate an audience member's unfaithful ex-girlfriend. For the second half of Banned, Kinison, who thought of himself as a "rock & roll comic" -- he had some success in 1988 with a novelty version of the Troggs' "Wild Thing" -- took this perception to extremes with his own hair metal versions of Cheap Trick's "Gonna Raise Hell," Mountain's "Mississippi Queen," the Rolling Stones' "Under My Thumb," and AC/DC's "Highway to Hell." He sings all four songs. Kinison alters the lyrics of "Mississippi Queen" and turns it into a novelty number, but the other three are "serious" covers. Many of Kinison's rock star pals perform on these remakes, including Eddie Money, House of Lords' Lanny Cordola and Chuck Wright, Mountain's Leslie West, Poison's C.C. DeVille, Bon Jovi's David Bryan, Quiet Riot and Whitesnake's Rudy Sarzo, Dweezil Zappa, Guns N' Roses' Slash, Dio's Jimmy Bain, and Cinderella's Fred Coury. ~ Bret Adams
