Bruce Springsteen’s soul has always burned for rock ‘n’ roll. Those who have seen him live over the years can attest. Personally, I have never seen a performer put more into every single chord played, every single chorus sung, or every single three to four hour show he performs. The man is music. And his appreciation for music, the history of music, and the future of music, everything about music, is part of his make-up. Bruce loves music. There is no doubt.

You Tube of The Week – B.B. King

BB King

In his 80′s, and still massaging the blues out of his guitar, Lucille, the king of the blues, B.B. King will be in town this week playing Humphreys by the Bay Monday August 5th. This man plays like he came out of the womb with guitar attached. Leaning back, smiling, playing the music of his soul, this video is an example of the beauty of B.B.’s talent.

Dylan proves talent trumps age at the Orange County Fair. Like an aging blues man uninterested in retirement and existing only for the opportunity to play his songs, Bob Dylan at 70 is still challenging himself live. One of rock’s greatest chameleons, Dylan has morphed into an improvising interpreter of all the different sides of himself.

Metallica and Lou Reed, or Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart, and Joss Stone?

Both combinations of talent are putting out albums. Which one makes more sense?

The sad news came wafting out of Florida Saturday night like the somber notes he would caress out of his saxophone; Clarence Clemons had passed away. For over 40 years the loveable “Big Man,” the ying to Springsteen’s yang, changed the landscape of rock and roll with a saxophone sound that was just as prevalent as any lead guitar.

Steve Miller – Let Your Hair Down – Album Review

Steve-Miller-Band-Let-Your-Hair-Down

And as far as blues cover records go, this one has enough luster to separate itself from the standard safe approach most take when covering the blues. Miller is having fun here and it comes through without trying to over step these classics and make them something they are not.
