Everybody loves the Boss for his blue collar rock anthems – the kind that make you stand up in your chair, throw your fist in the air, sing along at the top of your lungs, maybe even make your feet shuffle – but there are very few songs that move me the way the slower, driving late at night number does.
Glancing through YouTube, there are dozens of covers by all sorts of artists from many different genres. This morning I stumbled upon a version by Kate Tucker backed by members of Lovedrug.
Kate’s made her version of “I’m on Fire” available for free via Bandcamp where you can also listen to (and buy) Kate’s most recent release, Ghost of Something New.
This is one totally messed up group, but you just gotta love ’em!
Check out the way Reverend J. Peyton plays some mighty fine fingerstylin’ American country/blues on his 1930 steel-bodied and his 1934 wood-bodied axe and the way Breezy Peyton plays her washboard with golf gloves to which thimbles have been attached.
All in all, perfect fun for all the family and I, for one, can’t wait to see them perform at the Bunbury Music Festival in Cincinnati in July.
Not getting tickets to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction this weekend in Cleveland doesn’t bother me as much now (the thing sold out in like 2 minutes). Not only will there not be a Guns N’ Roses reunion but Axl Rose isn’t even going to show up.
“I won’t be attending The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction 2012 Ceremony and I respectfully decline my induction as a member of Guns N’ Roses to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.” – Axl Rose
Undoubtedly, Axl’s going to take a lot of shit for this and it’s going to be called a “stunt”, but his letter to the LA Times makes some good points and I have to say that I don’t think any less of him for this.
Well, not only is she an actress, but she’s a singer too. Alexandra Socha posted the “Sara Sessions” on Bandcamp and says this about the songs: Once Upon A Time, Paul Fujimoto and I had a lot of time on our hands, a piano, some fancy recording equipment and two books of Sara Bareilles songs (beer may have also been involved). We saw then it was our destiny to record covers of her awesome songs and release them once a week for the next month. Enjoy “The Sara Sessions”!
