James Cameron’s Music Video (with Paxton and the gang!)

From YouTuber HDvisionmag — In 1988, Bill Paxton and vocalist/guitarist Andrew Todd Rosenthal formed a short-lived rock duo Martini Ranch. They recorded and released just one album entitled Holy Cow, which included inputs from Devo members Mark Mothersbaugh, Bob Casale and Alan Myers (all of whom contributed to the album’s hit “How Can the Labouring Man Find Time For Self-Culture?”), along with Cindy Wilson of the B-52’s as a back-up vocalist and actor Judge Reinhold is credited as a whistler on “Reach”. But the best part was that the video was directed by James Cameron. It is remarkably, the only music video he ever shot.

The video includes cameos from director Kathryn Bigelow, as well as Aliens and Terminator alumni Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser, Mark Rolston and Jenette Goldstein (from Aliens), Brian Thompson (can you spot him ? He got gutted at the beginning of T1 and was the great bad guy in Cobra), Judge Reinhold, and Adrian Pasdar who had appeared in Bigelow’s Near Dark) with Paxton, Goldstein and Henriksen.
