Johnny Beaudine; The Blues – ‘Live’ from Chicago ….Part One

How many times has someone sat down and explained how good Muddy Waters was. On how many occasions did someone tell a captive audience that Howlin’ Wolf was the best …

Junior at T's

How many of these storytellers actually played with and/ or  witnessed these legends first hand?

Not many.

This is where saxophone player Johnny Beaudine comes in.

Born in Chicago and receiving a Blues apprenticeship with men such as Otis Rush, James Cotton and Buddy Guy – allows Beaudine an insight very few have into the legacy of the Blues …

Is Classic Rock Killing The Trews in Quebec?

The band from Nova Scotia done good …

Opening up for Aerosmith, The Stones, Kiss and Gun n Roses – not a bad thing to put on your resume.  You would think, airplay on Rock stations would come easy after such monumental shows in a ten year span.

Think again …

Listen why the band has trouble in certain markets and how one decision can change everything …

John – Angus MacDonald – the guitar player explains …

Rick Keene Speaks to Eric Burdon …

As Barney from the hit show ‘How I met Your Mother’ once said;

Legend … wait for it … ary!

eric

Eric Burdon possesses one  of the true voices  in not only Rock n Roll – yet music history as well. A man who believed in himself, his convictions and passed those messages on through unmatched live and studio appearances.

Ranked 57 on Rolling Stone magazine’s Top 100 Vocalists of all time – Burdon is a survivor. A student of the Rhythm and Blues which, until the British Invasion – lay dormant in the very country which gave birth to it.

ericblog

Commencing with his band The Animals, Eric passed ‘The Black Music’  through songs such as ‘The House of The Rising Sun’, ‘Sky Pilot’, ‘Monterey‘ and ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’ . He then edged into a more funkier sound with War starting in 1969 and into the early seventies.

‘Spill the Wine’, ‘Tobacco Road‘ and ‘You Can’t Take Away our Music‘ were direct results of a ‘Vietnam -led’ changing of the innocent times. Burdon remained cutting age in lyrics, vocal style and conviction.
