Wake up late this morning? My Mistake say The Kingbees



As we try to wake up from the weekend, a good way to get the blood pumping is to raid another video from the Youtube files of Dave "Maestro" Morrison with The Kingbees My Mistake.

Lead singer Jamie James was born in Canada but moved to L.A. in the ‘70s and started the rockabilly band The Kingbees. My Mistake was released as a single in 1980 and made it as far as # 81 on the pop charts.

The band would have several songs on the 1981 "The Idolmaker soundtrack but soon broke up. Rubbing shoulders with actors, James soon made friends in Hollywood and in the late ‘80's teamed up to form a music collaboration with actor Harry Dean Stanton (Pretty in Pink). In 2000, James joined DQ and the Sharks with DQ being Dennis Quaid.
