    Ryan Adams is a fairly polarizing figure. You either like or hate both his personality and music. I happen to fall on the side of enjoying both his personality (fucking crazy, pretty funny), and music (eclectic and prolific).

    OK, i haven’t thought about them in years, you haven’t thought about them in years, but it turns out The Presidents of the United States of America (PUSA) are not only still a band, but at FYF Festival they showed they are a genuinely awesome band.

    The Rolling Stones (w/Mick Taylor) – Live @ The Staples Center

    The Rolling Stones (w/Mick Taylor) – Live @ The Staples Center, 2013. Concert photography by Scott Dudelson. My favorite era Rolling Stones is 1969-1973 with Mick Taylor on guitar. During this Staples Center show on the ’50 and Counting’ tour, Mick Taylor guested on four songs including an epic jam on ‘Can’t You Hear Me […]

    Chris Robinson will always been best known as the singer and focal point of The Black Crowes. And that’s great, the Black Crowes had some really good years (the one’s with Marc Ford on guitar being the best for my money). But post-Black Crowes, Chris Robinson has not gotten the attention he deserves because he’s still got it going on, and his new outfit The Chris Robinson Brotherhood is one hell of a band. (more…)

    The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band gets a bad wrap from folks of my generation. In the 1980′s and 1990′s, mainstream country was kinda sad (and still is to be honest, IMHO), and these guys didn’t seem to make it any cooler (their 1989 Will the Circle Be Unbroken sequel notwithstanding). (more…)

    I will not go on about it in future posts, but I will state here for the record that the Lockn Festival in Arrington, VA is one of the best festivals in the country. Nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountatins, the festival site is settled on a patch of hundreds of acres of land, with festival camping sites all around it. (more…)

    Peter Frampton Guitar Circus Live at Hollywood Bowl by Scott Dudelson Photos: Peter Frampton   Live @ The Hollywood Bowl

    While Peter Frampton has become most associated as a solo act (via being the creator of mega hits – “Baby I Love Your Way,” and “Show Me the Way”), I like first think of Peter Frampton as guitarist for Humble Pie. With the death of singer Steve Marriott over 20 years ago, there is no chance of a Humble Pie reunion, and thus when Peter Frampton performs there are never any songs from that catalog (despite Frampton noting that this Bowl show was his first time back performing at the venue since his time with Humble Pie). Bummer. (more…)

    There is no argument to be made: Wynonna Judd is a bona fide country music legend. For over thirty years, Wynonna Judd – solo and along with The Judds – has been churning out country pop hits. And to a younger generation who may not know Wynonna Judd as a singer, they may know her from television appearances on Touched by an Angel and her stint as a contestant on season 16 of Dancing with the Stars.

    Since 2012 i’ve seen the girls of Garfunkel and Oates popping up on festival bills – FYF in 2012, Festival Supreme in 2013 – and each time caught the performance and laughed my ass off. I continued my annual tradition of seeing Garfunkel and Oates this time at The Barbary tent at the Outside Lands Festival in Golden Gate Park. (more…)

    For many males ages 30-40 in the indie rock scene, Jenny Lewis is their musician crush.
    Since the dissolution of Rilo Kiley in 2007, Lewis has released three albums (all of which are great), including a new album “The Voyager” released July 29th, 2014 and produced by Ryan Adams (and one track by Beck).

    For my money Derek Trucks is the best guitar player on the planet. He’s simply a badass. With our without a slide, he wails. Trucks has been performing with The Allman Brothers band since 1999, an outfit that he and Warren Haynes revitalized, and one which they will both depart at the end of the year. (more…)

    I gotta admit i’ve never been a real big fan of The Eagles. Henley and Frey always seemed like tools. I recently saw a documentary on them, and I found myself with a little more respect for the dudes. After all, I learned they were REALLY REALLY interested in country-rock, chicks and drugs..equally. OK by me.

    What can one say about Lynyrd Skynyrd? Awesome band, of course – possibly the best southern rock band of the 1970′s. But the 2014 version of Skynyrd is a marvel upon itself. (more…)
