Watch Pro-Shot Footage of Winger Performing with The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Liam Wilson
The unfavorable adjudication of Beavis and Butt-Head be damned — The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Liam Wilson is a Winger fan. This is not news: last year, Wilson wrote a glowing review for Winger’s most recent offering, Better Days Comin’, and he interviewed the band’s vocalist/bassist/namesake, Kip Winger.
He also performed with Winger at that year’s Download Festival, joining them onstage for a rendition of “Madalaine,” the opening track from the eponymous 1988 debut. For whatever reason, Winger have only just gotten around to releasing pro-shot footage of that performance, but, hey, better late than never.
If you don’t agree with Wilson’s stance on Winger, this probably won’t do much to change your mind — the video certainly isn’t very flattering with regards to the state of Kip Winger’s vocal abilities in the 21st century. But look how much fun Wilson is having! He would have just turned nine when Winger peaked on the charts in February of ’89; if his youth was anything like mine, this is roughly the age when he would have started staying up late to watch Headbanger’s Ball. Who knows — if not for Winger, maybe Liam Wilson never even picks up a bass.
My point being, I’m sure playing with Winger was the fulfillment of a childhood fantasy Wilson never in his wildest dreams would have come true. So even if you’re not a Winger fan… how can you possibly begrudge Wilson this experience?
