Tonight! ...and Friday Night!

Looking for something fun to do on a school night? Then head out to Smith's Olde Bar for a roots rockin' good time. In the Atlanta room you'll find Hot Rod Walt & the Psycho DeVilles along with Slim Wray, Buck O'Five, Whiskey Belt, and Big Boss Man!


Friday night, be sure to tune in EAVradio and hear my new roots rock radio show. It's similar to Psychobilly Freakout, but without the psycho. It's anything from rockabilly to blues to country. Music from the past 60 years to get those toes tapping! You can also download the EAVradio app for your smartphone or tablet by clicking here.

Blake Shelton, You Dun Goofed

Fans of classic country and roots music (not the pop crap you hear on mainstream radio), take a moment and let Blake Shelton know how you feel regarding his comments on classic country music. He says, "Nobody wants to listen to their grandpa’s music. And I don’t care how many of these old farts around Nashville going, “My God, that ain’t country!” Well that’s because you don’t buy records anymore, jackass."

Halloween Is Coming Early

There's a lot coming your way and I've been a slacker keeping you all updated. If you haven't heard about it, Dr. Gangrene's 9th Annual Horror Hootenanny is coming up Saturday October 13th. Two of my favorite bands, The Creeping Cruds and Hellfire Revival, are playing that night along with Canadian greats Forbidden Dimension and Nashville horror rockers Alucard.

If you enjoy horror movies, punk rock, psychobilly, or drenching yourself in blood for no reason, you need to be there! The Muse is no more, so this year it's at The End. Check them out online for directions and contact info. ADULTS: They only serve beer, no liquor or wine.

Elvis Death Day

Today marks the 35th anniversary of Elvis' death. Here's an exerpt from my article in the August issue of Grease magazine. For the full article, head to your local mechanic's shop, tattoo parlour, favorite bar, or restaurant and pick up the current issue of Grease Inc. magazine!
It wasn't until the Summer of '54 when at the suggestion of Sun Records founder, Sam Phillips, that Elvis got together with guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black. Moore recalls, He had on a pink shirt, pink pants with white stripes down the legs, and white shoes. I thought my wife was going to go out the back door! People just weren't wearing that kind of flashy clothes at the time."  
Commenting on his own guitar playing, Scotty Moore said, "All I can tell you is I just stole from every guitar player I heard over the years. Put it in my data bank. And when I played that's just what come out. But what really sets [our] recording apart is Elvis’s vocal, which soars across a wide range and expresses both a youthful humor and a boundless confidence. The overall feeling the song communicates is one of limitless freedom.”
