Rowdy Roddy Piper music project to help cancer charities


piperHuffington Post has an article on Rowdy Roddy Piper partnering with Alan Snoddy and The Queen St Band – an all-star group including members of The E Street Band, Sam Roberts Band and The Trews – to raise money for cancer charities.

Piper and The Queen St Band recorded a music CD, “Off the Top Rope,” a sort of autobiographical song about Piper’s career written by Snoddy based on stories from Piper’s wild days in pro wrestling.

“I was telling him about one of my matches and I said ‘Sometimes you’ve just got to jump in there,’” Piper said. “I told him about Babe Ruth, who was one of the greatest home run hitters ever. He also struck out the most. And Alan says ‘Sometimes you’ve just got to step off the top rope, huh?’ As a metaphor, yeah, folks! You have to have the courage to step off the top rope. That’s how the song started.”
