If you ever find yourself in conversation with a devoted fan of early American RHYTHM AND BLUES, they will most likely gush with passion over LAVERN BAKER.
In 2012, VICE MAGAZINE published an article asking “What will you do when David Bowie dies”? Before then, it had never occurred to me that David Bowie COULD die, and I got worried. What will I do? There’s no other artist that has been a bigger influence on the direction I’ve gone…
I’m not sure exactly how we’d go about it, but I feel like we really need to take care of our ground breaking musical pioneers. So often, they end up passing away with nothing to show for their ventures except a lifetime of hardship. I hope that no other artist, who has made a significant…
