Satin GumThe 2009 didn’t start right. Reboot please! They year barely started and we lost Ron Asheton, the legendary guitar player of The Stooges. Definitely one of the most influential “shredders” around. Dave Dee of Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich also left this ugly world. This former policeman was patroling when Eddy Cochran died in his car crash and had later on a few big hits with his band. Songs Band It! and Zabadak! are forgotten now, but back when I was a small kid, these two were my favorites. Besides our tributes to Dave Dee and Ron Asheton, we also have some new tunes. Satin Gum is a promising new band from Pittsburgh PA with influences in the melodic grunge. Variety Show is a duet from Chicago with a rich songwriting talent. We also have two ladies, Heather Waters, who was Delbert McClinton’s protege. We also have Jenny Scheinman for the first time, although her CD is almost a year old now. But it’s never too late for rock’n’roll!
