This Guy’s Anything But a Creep
Meet Joe Ardizzone, the bartender at a piano bar in NYC who stepped up to the mic at closing time and did THIS. It makes me happy to know that there’s talent like this living among us. If he can do this after a full shift shouting at customers and slinging Alabama Slammers, he has earned a recording deal in my mind.
I have lots of angsty Radiohead memories from college – most involve me getting dumped – yet Ardizzone somehow made the song sound refined, like something you’d listen to in front of the fireplace with a glass of Pappy Van Winkle.
What do you think – do you like his version?
