I’m really liking the new Kesha album.
About once a month, maybe every couple of months I watch Blake do his thing, without vocals (I love Tommy’s vocals, but the drummer in me likes being able to focus on the drums sometimes).
A new remix single from George Michael. Nile Rodgers accompanying.
I saw Chantel McGregor live a couple of days ago, and my jaw hasn’t quite made its way back up off the floor yet. Incredible blues-rock guitar playing.
In my continuing of the ‘I Love the 1980s’ BBC shows they came up to Soul II Soul in 1989. My uncle was the owner of a small finance company in London and a year or two earlier received a loan application from Jazzie B who led the band. He was quite hands on so went to his studio to listen before he approved, I’m quite proud of him because despite being a middle aged white bloke he understood the music was great and signed it off.
It got paid back, no problem.
