Today I will have the privilege of interviewing bluegrass pioneer Mac Wiseman about his career as well as a new album, Songs From My Mother’s Hand. It’s always a treat when I get to learn about musicians who may not have originally been familiar to me, only to discover their significance and legacy. I’m looking forward to this.
Artist: Crowded House
Track: Better Be Home Soon
Album: Temple of Low Men
Theme: Coming Home
Forty-five years ago today, the Rolling Stones had the number one single in the U.S. with “Honky Tonk Women” while Johnny Cash topped the U.S. album charts with Johnny Cash at San Quentin.
That’s a whole lotta badass, right there.
Fifty years ago tonight the Beatles were playing their first show at the Hollywood Bowl.
I like how the ticket says the standard “No Refunds,” like someone who paid a whopping $3.50 had any right to bitch about the performance.
The last time I saw Paul McCartney in concert the tickets were $300 each.
