I haven’t thought of Michael Winslow since Spaceballs. Here’s a clip of him performing Led Zepplin’s “Whole Lotta Love” on a talk show of some sort. It’s spectacular. I have no idea how he mimics guitar distortion so well.
I’ve often suspected that he wasn’t really making those sounds in Spaceballs and the Police Academy movies, or at least not without post-production effects. This clip eliminated that suspicion. What a strange, compelling talent.
