stardom

Blitzen Trapper was the best live show I've seen in a while.  I was fortunate to be able to attended two of their performances recently.  After the first performance the organist, as he was packing up, thanked me for "rocking out with them".  I love being treated like I exist.  I sincerely hope they do not succumb to losing this type of fan gratefulness, like so many others before, when faced with stardom.  And they will most definitely be faced with stardom.

Although it is a blessing he is no longer suffering, losing Levon Helm from this world is tragic.  In my opinion, The Band was one of the greatest of all time.  I am truly heartbroken I never had the chance to see them or Mr. Helm live.  What a cruel cosmic joke that he would suffer from throat cancer given that he was such a distinct, beloved vocalist.  I am certain he is missed by many, and will never be forgotten by more.  RIP Levon Helm.

I recently saw a show that knocked my boots off.  Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown.  The young, gifted Bryant is soulful, bluesy and writes a mean song.  The media has labeled him a prodigy.  Even if you don't dig this genre of music his talent is notable.

I am not usually a fan of Joni Mitchell covers, I never feel anyone can top her.  I was pleasantly surprised when I began listening to my recent purchase of "streetlights" by Bonnie Raitt.  The first song on the album is a bluesy, country cover of Joni Mitchell's "that song about the midway", which I instantly fell in love with.  I originally bought the album because I love Raitt's cover of "angel from montgomery" but the entire album has touched my soul.  I am thoroughly addicted.
