Charlie Watts

Charlie Watts was a steady backbone of the greatest rock’n’roll band in the entire history of the world. This is a little tribute to him. It consists of a playlist that several Internet sources quote as his best performances with The Rolling Stones. I also mixed in some of the rare things that perhaps better illustrate Charlie’s personal tastes outside of the band as well. Charlie Watts wasn’t just influential. He was inimitable.

SherwinToday we introduce Sherwin from Lancester, PA. We also check out some new tunes from Barreracudas (Atlanta GA) and Step-Panther (from Sydney AU). Good old Keith Richards has a new single and it sounds amazingly fresh. The second part of today’s show is dedicated to my friends Žikica and Skoča who lost a good home to their radio shows, because their radio station was shut down. Those shows are my favorites and I can only hope that they will find a new home and a new way to continue with their work as soon as possible. We also say the last goodbye to Wayne Carson Thompson (who wrote The Letter, Neon Rainbow and You Are Always on My Mind) and the keyboard player Eric Wrixon, the founding member of Them and Thin Lizzy (although he stayed with them only long enough to record early singles).

Ian McLaganDecember 2 and December 3 of 2014 were two devastating days for rock’n’roll. We lost two true greats, Bobby Keys and Ian McLagan. McLagan started in Small Faces, continued with Faces had some amazing solo records, toured with his Bump Band. Bobby Keys played saxophone and greatly contributed to the golden period of The Rolling Stones – their Sticky Fingers and Exile of Main Street. Ian and Bobby crossed paths several times, on Faces, Ian’s solo records and the most recently actually in Cleveland – for the Rolling Stones tribute organized by the rock hall. This show is dedicated to the two of them. Their sounds are part of the very fabric of rock’n’roll. Thanks comrades!

Flashlite #284 – Goodbye Tommy Ramone, Gerry Goffin, Bobby Womack, Charlie Haden, MiÅ¡a Blam… and Paul Mazursky

Tommy RamoneThis is one devastating month for the world of music. We lost some of the really great ones recently. Tommy Ramone is the most recent one, until now, the only remaining original Ramone, writer of Blitzkrieg Bop and producer of The Replacements Tim. His most recent musical effort was a bluegrass duet Uncle Monk, and one touching song which I recorded live in Cleveland from that era finishes our show. We also review some of my favorite Gerry Goffin and Carole King songs. Goffin passed away and left behind an incredible pioneering work in rock’n’roll lyricism. Bobby Womack, who was born in Cleveland OH by the way, also passed away last month. Rock’n’roll audience probably knows him the best as the author of the Rolling Stones first no.1 hit It’s All Over Now, but he was also a great singer in his own right. The we say goodbye to two great jazz bassists. Charlie Haden was definitely one of the greatest in the world. Incredible list of collaborators will never be surpassed. For instance, we check out his most recent album with Keith Jarrett called The Last Dance. It came just one month before the news came about Haden’s departure. MiÅ¡a Blam is the second bassist that passed away recently. He is not very well known outside of the borders of former Yugoslavia, but back home, he was regarded as the greatest one. And finally we also mention the passing of Paul Mazursky, definitely one of my favorite movie directors.
