Rick Keene Music Scene – Top Ten Favorite Interviews 2016. Part One.

Yakety-Yak – don’t talk back …


In the past year, many musicians from all genres have been kind enough to speak with me. Giving their time and music to share stories and insights from the world of music.

Tales of recordings, the dynamics of bands or plain anecdotes from where they come.

Here now is Part One of my
