    Now this is definitely an underated bassist if I ever saw one. Hogan was a bassist for a band in my hometown back in the 70s and they played at Jimmy Jack's Sugar Shack. Great bassist. For sure Hogan put the muscle behind his playing. Kudos Terry Bolea!!!!

    Maybe Hogan should take up his bass playing again, being as WCW is dead and buried...no, I mean WWF now owns WCW and Hogan is out in the cold.

    I bet a Hulk Hogan band would be a fun novelty for awhile, especially if he could get other washed up...er ah...retired wrestlers to play with him. Let's see, Sting on drums, Lex Luger on lead guitar, Roddy Piper on rhythm guitar, and Randy Savage on keys. Scott Hall on harmonica. Kevin Nash could sing. I'd pay to see that.

    Aw, come on Jason, Sting isn't that washed up yet.....is he? :(

    Anyway, here's my wrestling dream band....

    Hillbilly Jim on the washboard

    Brutus The Barber Beekcake on guitars (he looks like he has some marginal musical talent, much as Hogan at least)

    Superfly Snuka on drums

    Iron Sheik on vocals
     
  6. The Bushwackers on percussion and The Ultimate Warrior could play lead guitar.

    I bet King Kong Bundy could blow a mean Trumpet.
     
  9. Ultimate Warrior would definitely sing lead.
     
  10. Hee hee, I remember all those guys! I'd have Honkey Tonk Man on guitar, and maybe the rockers on guitar too, they look like 80's hair metal guitarists. Hulk Hogan on bass, I guess, if he already knows how to play. He doesn't seem like a jazz bass kind of guy to me though. He seems more to me like a P Bass kind of guy. And the Ultimate Warrior on drums, he has a lot of energy.

    He's actually played on a few childrens records, or so I hear anyway. Nice to know that Hogan has some sense...and really, anything besides bass would be SO tiny on those guys...

    I saw a Hulk special on E True Hollywood Story, and it showed him shredding a guitar....sigh.....
     
  14. Aren't the Bushwackers distant cousins of Flea???

    I remember my brother and I playing this WWF record album with Hulk Hogan, et al. when I was little. I'll always remember their rendition of "Land Of A Thousand Dances". Brought tears to my eyes it was so damn good. Those guys are in the wrong field.

    :D

    "Na nana nanaaa...nananana nanana nanana...nana nanaaaaaaaa"

    :D

    PS: I would've liked to see Andre the Giant (RIP) play the bass.

    Stephanie, I;m glad to know that another person in this world owns that album besides me. I always liked Rick Derrigner's "Real American" which later became Hogan's theme. Those songs were so funny, and I still listen to it from time to time just for fun.
