Thrill of a lifetime...

One of my all time favorite rock n roll groups are The Stooges. Their music was trailblazing, sexy and has aged better than most music from any age.

Tomorrow night, I am pleased to say that my band, Careless Hearts, will be backing Stooges guitarist James Williamson for a one off gig in San Jose. His first gig in 35 years.

If you are in the bay area and haven't heard about this, get a ticket QUICK because it is almost sold out.

James' guitar playing still kicks, still thrills and is some of the hottest fretwork you'll ever hear. Plus, he co-wrote all of the songs on raw Power and Kill City with Iggy Pop. A true legend, and he's BACK.

Hi Derek. I'm on the wrong side of the pond to catch your gig. But I wish you a great, great evening.
On the 45 tip, thanks again for all the astonishing music you've shared. One 45 I've not seen featured on The Daily 45 is Lonnie Russ's Something Old, Something New (link below). It's simply amazing. And the most amazing thing about it is that Lonnie Russ only recorded two sides as far as I can find. This is the b-side to a terrible novelty record entitled My Wife Can't Cook that came out in 1962. How this song (Something Old, Something New) got relegated to the flip-side beggars belief. In case you haven't heard it before, sit back and bask in its soulful genius. Cheers, Jon (Hove, UK)
