All the bills are paid, I got it made in the shade an’ all I n-n-need is Tico the singing parrot to kick off the weekend!
Meet Tico, the parrot who’s recently made internet headlines thanks to a series of videos uploaded by his owner Frank Maglio. The videos feature Tico singing along to various classic rock songs performed by Maglio on the guitar.
Maglio launched his YouTube channel back in April who invited Tico and Frank on the program in the fall. Maglio talked about first discovering Tico’s vocal talents.
“One day I was playing guitar back in March, during the second week of lockdown,” said Maglio, “and Tico started screaming like he wanted attention, so instead of throwing the towel in, I grabbed my guitar … and sat down by him and started playing, and I was like, ‘I think he’s singing.’”
He sure is and he seems to really take to Van Halen songs. Who can blame him right?
Below you can watch Tico singing to Van Halen songs along with one Sammy Hagar song:
“AIN’T TALKIN’ ‘BOUT LOVE”:
“TAKE ME BACK (DEJA VU)”:
