Secret star of this episode is Neil Young. Two of his songs recently saw inspiring covers. Kent State murders are having a 45 year anniversary this year. Neil wrote a song about the event and this year, Cleveland band Obnox recorded a cover. A totally different sounding Colleen Rennison’s new album is named after a Neil Young song See The Sky About To Rain from On The Beach. King Khan is very active these days. After his album with Gris Gris, he reunited with Mark Sultan in a new duet Bad News Boys. We also have Miriam Linna, once a member of Cramps and nowadays boss of Norton Records. She’s back into the “business” as a performer and has a solo album Nobody’s Baby. Howlin’ Rain led by Ethan Miller also has a new album Mansion Songs.
