Interesting Fact: If you happen to catch the premiere episode of “Vinyl” on HBO this Sunday night, while you’re watching “The New York Dolls”, you’ll actually be hearing Me and Andy York on guitars, Steve Holley on drums, and Tony Shanahan on bass, along with David Johansen himself on vocals. We all had a super- great time at the session (at Electric Lady) back in Summer 2014..
Oh, and BTW, don’t forget to pledge to my new Kickstarter campaign!!!
For the entirely of this week’s Bottomless Pit I’ll be paying tribute to one of the greatest music makers of my lifetime, Maurice White. The mighty are falling fast these days; Maurice died on 2/4/16.
Of course we’ll hear some music from Earth, Wind, and Fire, and Kalimba Prod., but our main focus we’ll be on Maurice’s legacy as one of the great studio drummers of the 1960s. The Chicago studio scene was FULL of great drummers, but Maurice stood out, on hits by Billy Stewart, Sugar Pie DeSanto, Fontella Bass, Ramsey Lewis, Walter Jackson, and many more. So be sure and catch all of the above on this week’s Bottomless Pit, Saturday at 10 PM EST on WFUV (wfuv.org)..
And PLEASE check out my new Kickstarter page; this is a thing that I’m obsessed with: http://kck.st/20JmZRO
Our campaign is off to a great start! Please pledge today!
