A question: Is "Rip It Up," which was played on the Shove It tour a song all its own or is it a proto-version of "Bad Attitude" (the way "Tear It Up" was at the Dec. 7th, 1990 Fan Club concert)?

If it's its own song, who wrote it?

Both, Little Richard and Bill Haley And His Comets released the song as a single in 1956.

It sounds pretty good, was the whole concert shared anywhere?

I think from the concert roger said they were in two minds to call the song tear it down or bad attitude. Has bits of what became bad attitude and I think they all had a hand in writing. Great show that one, roger went on to say that innuendo was probably the best album they had made.

Listen to the mp3 above, it's an old song from the 1950's.

Even Led Zeppelin once covered it in 1977. It's an old standard.
