Regardless of what the FBI thought The Kingsman were singing, the irony is, the FBI turned the song into one of the biggest hits in rock history by making such a big deal out of investigating it.
Jerry Dennon was the man repsonsible for getting this song played around the country. Dennon is now the subject of a new DVD documentary entitled “Louie Louie and the History of Northwest Rock & Radio,” recemtnly released March 15, 2012 by SoundWorks USA, Inc., a multi-media entertainment, manufacturing and content company based in Redmond, Wash.
Dennon's story and the history of Northwest Rock & Radio is a facinating and fun tale of early rock and roll in the wild wild Northwest. Here is the link to the DVD: http://www.soundworks.net/thehistoryofnorthwestrockvol4battleofthebands-1.aspx
