“I got nothin’ for you darlin’, but a story to tell…”

Clearly, I have a thing for Jersey boys. That’s why this is my favorite thing today.

The Cardinal Sessions is a groovy little concept out of Germany, shooting intimate takes of music performances with both up and coming and renowned artists. The quality of the videos they produce is breathtaking (see my all time favorite here).

Yesterday, they posted this session with The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon and Alex Rosamilia doing a stripped down, gorgeous version of “Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis?” It is a radically different take on the howling, fast-paced, guitar-heavy original version. As much music as I consume, I’m still blown away that the same song can become an entirely different story when you change the tone.

Love on this.

Will Hoge Melting Faces Worldwide on Jimmy Kimmel

About eight years ago, I got turned on to a sweaty, rock n’ roll singer and his band from Nashville.  Since that fateful fall of 2003, Will Hoge and his boys have become one of my favorite bands of all time, and my absolute favorite act to see live (yes, even eclipsing The Boss, kid – and that’s a huge statement for me to make).

Last night, the fellas made their debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live.  Watching them rock it out on national television was just the best thing…I am so excited for them, for the long overdue attention they are getting, and I’m so proud to be one of their fans.   The world needs more Will Hoge!   Hit the link below to see what I’ve been going on and on about for years…..

Long live rock n’ roll!!  Long live Will Hoge!
