Keep on (Red) Rockin'
Politics and art, politics and rock and roll, they just don't do the boogie-woogie as much as we would expect, or even as much as they once did in this land is our land. Here's an unexpected treat, a Huffington Post bit delivered by music industry guy Howie Klein, wherein our good bud Darren (ex-Raindogs and current Paul Westerberg guru)Hill's original band New Orleans-based The Red Rockers is both referenced and depicted in a little self-done protest video also contributed by Klein.(Haveta mention that Darren looks young and "cute" enough in the vid's stills that I had to resist the urge to print one out and pin it right up on my bedroom wall.)
