Mark Lanegan

Sad news came to us on Tuesday that Mark Lanegan passed away. Today’s show is entirely dedicated to him and it contains my recording of his entire Cleveland show on November 5th 2014. He ended up liking the recording and a part of that recording was published it as an LP High, Wild and Free. Lanegan was featured at The Little Lighthouse very frequently and we will greatly miss his new music and incredible live shows.
