Whatever happened to….? Jimmie’s Chicken Shack

It’s time for a new segment on SSB.

“Whatever happened to…?”

One of us will be talkin’ about a group, a fad, something, anything that was big back in the day…that just sort of disappeared.

Like this group.

What did they do right?

It’s 1999 and I’m in my sophomore year of high school.  I’m catching some MTV before I go to school and I see a video that didn’t make any sense.  It had a catchy tune, awesome guitar sounds, and random happenings all over the screen.  It was a microcosm of my adolescent brain.

The group was Jimmie’s Chicken Shack, and it was the video for their single “Do Right”.  Did it blow my mind?  Yes.  With the advent of FREE MP3’S and FTP sites/services, this was one of the first songs I downloaded.  Ahhhhh…good times.  I didn’t really realize the weight of the lyrics until I grew up a bit and realized just how laid back these guys were.

12 years later, yeah….what do I do right?  Some things, I hope.  I think.

But on the real…where are they now?  Are they still performing?  If Wikipedia is to be believed, then they’re still together.

I hope.  ‘Cuz that song rocked.
