About Wet Willie
They had one of the dumbest band names ever, and they probably take up more space in flea market clearance bins than any other band -- two awfully big strikes against them, but if you can set aside your reservations, you'll find that Wet Willie made some pretty decent music. The one song you probably know them for is the AM gem "Keep on Smilin'," a vaguely Caribbean Muscle Shoals ditty that well demonstrated the band's agility. What other band glided so effortlessly between swampy blues, white soul and jammy rebel rock? Alright, besides the Allman Brothers.
