Rick Keene Music Scene – George Thorogood Isn’t ‘Lonesome’ on His First Solo Record

Bad to The Bone …

Who on this planet does not know that opening riff followed by the words in the song ‘Bad To The Bone’? Chances are – aliens circling overhead in their spacecraft hear it every time George Thorogood and his Destroyers play it live.

It has been a long and storied career for Thorogood – starting as a hard working solo act making a name for himself on the club scene. John Lee Hooker, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, The Rolling Stones and Howlin’ Wolf – just a few of the men who influenced George to pick up a guitar and start playing.

15 million albums sales and more than 8,000 live shows later – George has released his first solo record paying respect to all the Blues guys that influenced hm.

Please listen below to my chat with Lonesome George about the new album and his upcoming show with The Destroyers Aug.23rd at

Trois Rivieres En Blues.

Roomful of Blues – From B​.​B. King to Colin James; The Little Big Band That Could .​.​.

Chris Vachon plays guitar for Roomful of Blues …

download (4)

For forty – five years, the band plays in a roomful of Blues fans. Opening up for or backing guys like B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton. 

In a Canadian connection, the band is most known as being Colin James’ ‘Little Big Band’. A pretty good resume for a band that does not need to be part of anything. On their own – one of the best Blues and Swing Bands in the music market.

Please listen below as Chris talks about all the above and his own experience and thoughts as a guitar player.

A guy whose name circulates like a breeze entering a screen door in the green humid pastures of Canada’s vast farmland. Omni – present, appreciated, yet seldom heard over the dales of the County lines.

Until now.

Please listen below as Rob speaks of his latest project and his beginnings in singing. A five year old pitch – perfect Freddie Mercury is a long way away from Country, Folk and Blues …
