If you're a "blues junkie", you simply have to get a hit of this. GUITAR RED, Billy C. Wall, the real deal, real life blues legend, playing and singing his story in a heartfelt, sometimes foot stomping way that'll get you so hooked you will never again settle for anything but the authentic, bona-fide, tried and tested pure stuff.

Pure Blues is a hard thing to find these days. Oh sure, I know there's a whole herd of folks who bill themselves as blues artists and some of them are real solid pickers. But my point is simply this and while it is only my opinion, I just think it's... Read More

In the wake of last year’s monumental insult of Madonna’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the Einstein’s at the Hall are at it again. Among this year’s proposed inductees are Run-DMC, and the 1970’s group “Chic.” The Hip-Hop and Disco products of both these groups are the very antithesis of Rock & Roll. Their induction should be considered a travesty especially when bands and artists who have contributed so much to the very fabric of Rock & Roll over many years are regularly over-looked by the politically corrupt keepers of the Hall of Shame.

The powers-that-be... Read More

Hallelujah, Innovative, Ignition Jam. "EFGHIIJ".

Imagine this... An Olympics Marathon of the blues mixed with straight ahead jazz relays, all seasoned with a dash of ballads, swing, and contemporary compositions from the 60's and 70's and a standard turned into a tantalizing tango.

This was the soulful session that occurred Friday night August 15th, at the Parkway Grill in Pasadena. The packed lounge and bar area was alive with easy conversation, food and drink; I was seated with a friend. As we settled in for an evening of dinner and Friday night relaxation, we anticipated a wondrous musical experience.

Pianist - David Arnay... Read More
