License This Song
According to Pete Way in his autobiography
A Fast Ride Out Of Here...
, this song started as a coded reference to his sex life, i.e. THTH. Best say no more!
However, it is fair to point out that at that time the woman in his life was Yvonne, and that like Henry VIII, he would marry no fewer than six times!
The phrase "too hot to handle" is of course a well-known cliché, and has been used
in a number of other song, book and film titles, including
a documentary about UFO
This is a Pete Way/Phil Mogg composition. Running to 3 minutes 37 seconds, it is the first track on the 1977
album, but like much of the genre, is popular live.
