MESSIN' WITH THE KID -- The Kid
3 pm - 6 pm, Saturdays -- Rock/Americana/Blues
Rock, Americana, a bit ‘o blues, occasionally twang, with a touch of mellow smoothness. Ferry ‘Cross The Mersey for the best of the British Invasion. If it’s got a backbeat, you can’t lose it. Any ol’ way ya choose it….
Music has always been a refuge. I tend to favor guitar- based rock, comfort food, but I'm not afraid to venture out to the fringe. In Austin, my wife taught me to appreciate real country music, but I came at it from folks like, Joe Ely, Doug Sahm, Willie Nelson, etc. I feel fortunate to have met, albeit briefly, my heroes, Todd Rundgren and Rory Gallagher. The greatest band ever: the Beatles. Heir to the throne: Todd Rundgren.
If you were to cut down my musical tree, in the rings you’d see: MEET THE BEATLES; SOMETHING/ANYTHING, Todd Rundgren; STREETCORE, Joe Strummer; FUNHOUSE, the Stooges; GOD SHUFFLED HIS FEET, the Crash Test Dummies; CALLING CARD, Rory Gallagher; HIDEAWAY, the Weepies; and LEAN FORWARD, the Bottle Rockets, to name but a few.
