Remembering a Couple of Legends

River of Rock, May 2017In the past few weeks, the rock n roll world has lost a couple of legends with the passing of Chris Cornell, front man of the group Soundgarden, and Gregg Allman, founding member of the legendary Allman Brothers Band. Both of these guys were unique talents the likes of which we will never see again. 

We’ve lamented about how the likes of Chuck Berry. Let’s hope that some of the remaining rockers and stick around for a while and continue bring us great music!

DrJ ohns GumboA bit of a turn away from his early psychedelic-influenced work. Dr. John’s Gumbo is a finely performed and produced tribute to the distinct, traditional music of Dr. John‘s hometown of New Orleans.
