Little Richard is Gone

The final member of the Rock N’ Roll triumvirate has passed. May Little Richard rest in peace and paradise with the ancestors and may the memories of those moved and transformed by his music be long.

Little Richard was a righteously vainglorious genius. He was the blueprint for the energy, the showmanship, and the verve of popular music. His influence is everywhere and without him there would be no Prince, no David Bowie, no Grace Jones, no Rolling Stones, no Beatles, no Iggy Pop, no Earth, Wind, and Fire

He lived long enough to be celebrated, but there are not enough words, at least for me, to accurately describe the blessings he bestowed on the world.

The Passionate Listener

Sturgill Simpson is a seductive storyteller. He captivates the listener from the first line of a song. Simpson uses his baritone deftly; crafting phrasing that creates a shared sense of comfort and intimacy with the listener. Whether he sings about the vagaries of love, the pain of being broke, or the existential crisis of human existence, Simpson is entrancing.

His music is the 21st century nexus of Country, Rock, Blues – large parts B.B. King, Waylon Jennings, Clarence Carter, The Allman Brothers- and uniquely Sturgill Simpson.
