Kyle and Jack are running a top notch outfit. They are recording some precious gems that Memphians will get the appreciate for years to come.
It's?????? I expect better.
"second coming of dad rock packaged as something cooler" - way, way too funny
Very polarizing band for having such a generic sound, and I guess we know where Chris sits on that spectrum. I don't like them enough to listen to their albums, but still will probably check out the show.
Awesome guys. Awesome band. Hope to see you back in Australia soon.
Memories of that incredible great,.. and never returning rock and roll era..glorious time when I was a very young lad, flows like a river on my mind when I hear Elvis Radio!! A music era that made history!!... Greetings to all fans! Rdrnnr47, here in Puerto Rico
What about any coments o there group " kill joy club" with I.C.P.
I was there and it was a great show. He played for nearly two hours all alone with very little accompaniment. Although, an acoustic version of "Pump It Up" did sound a might odd.
Joe Boone was the only chance I had of getting press after 26 years in the " biz" in this city. Dang , just when I thought I had an inside ally.
One more correction - Slash did NOT design costumes for David Bowie, but his mom did!
NOOOOOOOOOO! Great work, Joe, you will be missed. Welcome also to Chris!
This does appear to be an excellent music fest lineup. One correction to the story: This Beale St Fest appearance will be John Fogerty's 1st Memphis concert in nearly 20 years, not 30. He played Mud Island on my birthday in Sept. 1997 (next time maybe look down more than the 1st five Google results). Either way, that still borders on sacrilege for an artist who has drawn tremendous inspiration from the music of Memphis and even name checked the city in the opening line of CCR's "Travelin' Band" not to mention the rock standard "Proud Mary."
Nicely written. Information and a smile...a great combination...Thanks Joe!
Looking forward to seeing Chris' job at the helm...he'll bring a lot of creds and contacts to the music info scene. He really seems to be plugged in.
Actually, Big K.R.I.T is Friday night...and very, very good by the way
My picks: Jarekus Singleton (just had a great blues rock show at Lafayette's); Memphis' own Preston Shannon, Prosevere, and Will Tucker (you have to see this young guy play blues guitar!). P-Funk and Robert Randolph. You guys will love Ana Popovic, who can totally shred a guitar.
Don't miss Savoy Brown, old school, heavy metal English rock at its finest. Some of their members were in town last year for the Blues Foundation awards, and they after-partied at Earnestine and Hazel's and put on a killer show with some other old English rockers.
ANA Popovic Rocks!
Sunday ??? What happened ??? No one else to do Sunday ???? Sounds like the Blues tent is the place to be.
Thanks for pointing out Dead Soldiers. I was country when country wasn't cool.
The Avetts are great!
