Fleetwood Mac... Cool?
Posted by Dan O'Brien on 2/26/2013 3:44:00 PM.


The original Fleetwood Mac was a blues band that boasted 3 of the best guitarists ever:
Peter Green who is the greatest British blues player.
Danny Kirwan who was head and shoulders with Greenie.
And Jeremy Spencer who played slide just like the iconic E
lmore James.
The original Mac was so awe inspiring, that after they toured the states the first time, Duane Allman decided to leave studio work and put together a rocket fueled blues band just like the Mac!..
He called in his brother Greg to play keys and sing lead. That band was of course The Allman Bros Band..
Meanwhile,Carlos Santana is so captivated by Peter Green's playing he starts imitating Greens style...He is especially in love with a Green song called The Supernatural.....sound familiar?
The Original Mac changed the whole rock landscape... That is the definition of cool!...

Alice Cooper Says Most Modern Rock Bands Are
Posted by Dan O'Brien on 2/26/2013 3:33:00 PM.

 
ALICE COOPER isn't all that impressed with what's passing for "rock 'n' roll" these days. He thinks that the rock spirit is about breaking the mold . . . and too many of today's bands are assimilating into the mainstream.

--He tells Cincinnati's "City Beat", quote, "My pet peeve right now is that 80% to 90% of the modern rock bands are just testosterone-free. I am listening to these bands and going, 'Where's the spark? Where's the fire?'

--"These bands are whining like crazy. It's like they're trying not to be rock stars.

--"If you're in a rock band, you get in a rock band to be something different. I guess modern rock bands really just want to blend in and I think it's the most boring time in rock right now that I've ever seen."

--There are a FEW exceptions, but not many. He adds, quote, "Jack White is amazing. The Foo Fighters are amazing . . . but when I see 99% of the other bands up there I say those bands can be anybody.

--"I just don't get the fact that everybody is so against having image."



I'd agree. There are some great new rock bands, but there aren't many contemporary groups that are kicking in their own doors, and turning the world upside down. There seems to be a lack of free spirits, and dangerousness. ~D O'Brien

Booker T. Jones
Posted by Chris Dillon on 2/26/2013 1:11:00 PM.

Make sure to treat yourself Sunday March 3rd with Booker T. Jones playing The Kate in Old Saybrook. I'll admit that I didn't know that much about Jones other than that he was frontman for the iconic Booker T. and the MG's. Even with the MG's I could only give you one hit..."Green Onions". I used it for a show opener when a buddy (Kevin McCauley) and I had a local talk show on WICH AM 1310 in Norwich.
I have to tell you...I'm hooked. Booker T. Jones has one new fan right here.
 
Here's a recent Twitter post, take a listen and find out why I've have a new fav, and why I'll be at the Kate on March 3rd.
