I realize it is an amorphous thought, and simultaneously the stuff of urban legend, but it seems to me, squinting back through the years, that every money shot in a 1970's porn film began with the distinctive wah-wah guitar of Hendrix's Voodoo Child.
If they didn't, they should have. More likely, owing to copyright issues, and dollars, what I recall is bad rip offs of Voodoo Child. I'll have to revisit a few classics to solidify this thought.
Nonetheless, I'm telling you: when the guitarist hit the wah-wah pedal on the soundtrack back then, you knew the clothes were coming off, and the headliners were about to exhibit their hirsute, untrimmed skills.
Just as DiMaggio was the bridge between the Yankees of Ruth and the Yankees of Mantle, I believe Ron Jeremy was probably the bridge between the wah-wah guitar pornographic film of the '70's and the free-for-all videos my attorneys tell me exist on the internets today. Which could use a little more wah-wah. And some professionals. Och. You get what you pay for.
