Rick Keene Music Scene – George Thorogood To Make Grand Ole Opry Debut

Bad – to the bone.

“I’m incredibly humbled by the honor and excited to connect with this audience,” says Thorogood. “I’ll be stepping onto the Grand Ole Opry stage with my guitar to share some great American music.”

“Of course the Opry showcases the best in country music to fans around the world each week, but we also appreciate opportunities to welcome guests from other genres and walks of life, including Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, Academy Award-winning actors and directors, and even a U.S. President,” said Opry Executive Producer Dan Rogers. “George Thorogood is an Opry fan himself, and we’re all in for a great show.”

In a special collaboration, a unique “SiriusXM Road to George Thorogood’s Opry Debut” will be rolled out including involvement across a wide array of SiriusXM channels discussing this historic moment. Thorogood will be a guest on SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country (ch. 60) and Volume (ch. 106) sharing his one-of-a-kind perspective on music and what this Opry debut means to him.

“When I was growing up, I’d hear Johnny Cash and Marty Robbins on the radio alongside Ray Charles and Bo Diddley,” George Thorogood says. “Music didn’t need to be labeled ‘country’ or ‘rock’. If it was good music, you enjoyed it. I loved it all.”

And for an artist whose worldwide hits include a cover of Hank Williams’ ‘Move It On Over’ – as well as self-penned classics like ‘I Drink Alone’ (a song he originally wrote for George Jones) and the ultimate badass anthem ‘Bad To The Bone’ – it’s clear that George Thorogood remains one of the most enthusiastically unique interpreters of what can only be categorized as American music.

Craft Recordings recently released a comprehensive reissue of George Thorogood and The Destroyers’ fiery concert album Live in Boston, 1982. The 27-track Live in Boston, 1982: The Complete Concertincludes 12 previously unreleased tracks (including performances of “Bad to the Bone,” “Who Do You Love?,” as well as the country classics they have made their own including Hank Williams’ “Move It On Over” and T.J. “Red” Arnall’s  “Cocaine Blues”). 

Tickets for other in-house audience Opry shows are available now at opry.com.

“This is a moral and musical compass designed to guide you on a road paved with caring and compassion. There is hope in our future if we use our voices to take action against the sounds of silence.

Rick Keene Music Scene – Wednesday’s Wicked …

“The only truth is music.”

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”

I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it.

Rick Keene Music Scene – Tune In to Tuesday’s Terrific Tunes

Times were changing. Clothes were changing. Morals were changing. We went from romantic loves songs like I used to do to rock ‘n roll. Now that has changed to rap. So, there’s always a new generation with new music.

Bobby Vinton

When I hear music that parents hate, or older musicians hate, I know that’s the new music. When I hear older people saying, ‘I hate Rap or Techno’ I rush to it.

George Clinton

Sandy Chochinov

I’m inspired by artists and musicians. There are so many wonderful and talented people in the world. I love discovering new music, new writers, or new art.

Alicia Keys

People say I seem very negative about new music – well, if somebody asks me what I think of Keane, I’ll tell ’em. I don’t like ’em. I’ll obviously take it a step too far and grossly insult the keyboard player’s mam or summat, but I’m afraid that’s just me.

Noel Gallagher

Rick Keene Music Scene – Paying Tribute to Sandy Chochinov

“Gone from our sight, but never from our hearts.”

A Canadian musician since 1968, Sandy Chochinov bravely followed his passion for music which was like breathing for him. He played the electric bass with his own unique style, sound and tone unlike any other.

He toured, recorded and performed across Canada until the late 1990s. Sandy taught himself the art of recording, editing and mixing his own music in his home studio for the last 20 years.

He continued to create and record music, playing bass, beats, guitar and keys along with many of his musical brothers and sisters producing 17 projects to date.

Sandy worked for Child and Family Services as a family support worker for 20 years, where he inspired many young people and their families to never give up and to always follow their dreams.

Please listen below as Lewsh Shaw of The Guess Who pays homage to his friend and musical collaborator Sandy Chochinov.

“Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.”

“Music is given of God to further his purposes. Sweet melodies mellow the souls of men and help prepare them for the gospel. After men receive the truth, songs of praise to Deity help to sanctify and cleanse their souls.”
