Bobby Keys & Ian McLagan, R.I.P.

4 December 2014 9:24 AM, PST | | See recent CultureCatch news »

Two music legends have passed on recently, Small Faces/Faces' keyboardist Ian McLagan and super session saxophonist Bobby Keys. Texas-born and bred Keys is best known for his work with The Rolling Stones. (As well as his hard-charging camaraderie with Keith Richards.) His honkin' can be heard on such Stones jukebox anthems as "Brown Sugar," "Happy," and "Can't You Hear Me Knockin'" as well as John Lennon's hit single "Whatever Gets You Thru the Night". He also played with one of my favorite bands, Delaney & Bonnie  as well as The Plastic Ono Band, Nilsson, Joe Cocker, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and many more. Last year I caught him in action with Bob Weir.

Ian also played on many sessions and toured with The Stones, Dylan, Springsteen, Billy Bragg, Bonnie Raitt, and others. But some of his most beloved songs include "Ooh La La," "Stay With Me," "Itchycoo Park," "Lazy Sunday" and many, »

SXSW Review: Road to Austin

25 March 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Austin is called the "Live Music Capital of the World," and a very large influence on it was singer/songwriter Stephen Bruton. In 2007, only a week after completing his treatment for throat cancer and in his final appearance on stage, Bruton led his band through a four-hour, 38-song "Road to Austin" performance in front of 20,000 fans. Director Gary Fortin covers the concert and history of the Austin music scene from 1835 to today in Road to Austin, which premiered at SXSW 2014.

Beginning with Kris Kristofferson and John Paul DeJoria relating their experiences, Fortin weaves photos and film footage from the earliest days of Austin into a vivid tapestry. Artists recount tales of legendary venues, some now gone, including Threadgill's, Antone's, the Armadillo World Headquarters, Broken Spoke, Continental Club and Saxon Pub.

Road to Austin explores how the city became, like a microcosm of the United States, a musical melting pot where country, »
