Leonard CohenSadly, in the past week we lost three important characters in this play we call rock’n’roll. Leonard Cohen, Leon Russell and Billy Miller. Leonard and Leo need no description, but Billy Miller might not be well known to a casual rock consumer. Yet, he was one of the founders of Norton Records – a greatly influential label in the past 20 years or so that brought us many of the hidden rock gems. In addition to that we hear new music from Å tajner Bend in Zagreb, Croatia, Bad Beats, from Vancouver, Doyle Bramhall II and James McMurtry, both from Texas. Also we introduce The Mobbs in UK and Happiness – an offshoot of Deer Tick lead by brothers Chris and Dennis Ryan.
