Song Lyrics That Name Check Celebrities:

"Something About Mary"
The Lyrics:
Turn my guitar up yo
What up Jimi Hendrix, I'll see you baby
Yo, Carlos Santana, thanks for the lessons baby
Yo, Steve Rod, I ain't forgettin' you man
To the godfather B.B. King
And to my man Eric Clapton
I think I'm forgettin' somebody, man
The Artist, ha-haaaaa
Yo, Jerry Wonder, man
You're playin' that bass like Bootsie Collins, man
Who They Mention:
Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, B.B King, Eric Clapton, Prince, and Bootsie Collins. Wyclef name checks all these famous guitar or bass players, comparing his and his bandmates' skills to theirs. Sadly, he is mistaken.
