This year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction class features a group of artists who are (mostly) well-known to anyone with a passing familiarity with the last few decades of popular music : Rush, Heart, Public Enemy, Randy Newman and Donna Summer.
“It’s been twenty-four years!” declared Gregg Allman in a rare bit of on-stage banter at Friday night’s (March 1) kickoff to the Allman Brothers Band’s annual “March Madness” at New York City’s Beacon Theatre.
In October of 2012, one of the best lineups of rock, country and soul acts came together to pay tribute to the late Band drummer/singer Levon Helm at New Jersey’s Izod Center.
The most surprising thing about the tour is that it hadn’t happened before now. There was clearly a respect and a bond between the two bands. It’s truly a co-headlining affair: The Allmans played first, whereas the prior night at Long’s Island’s Nikon At Jones Beach, they closed the show.
In 2000, The Allmans fired Dickey Betts, and Warren Haynes rejoined, replacing his former boss. At that point, he and Derek Trucks had to establish their relationship — as two lead guitarists who specialize in slide playing. Haynes explained the dynamic when he sat down with CBS Local.
Let’s take a look at this week’s albums, reissues and other musical goodies from classic artists making musical waves yet again.
