In the time between his tenure with The Steve Miller Band and his highly successful solo albums on Columbia, Boz Scaggs recorded a blues album for Atlantic, famously featuring an undiscovered Duane Allman on lead guitar…this song made the Allman Anthology album many years ago but here’s Boz and a more contemporary version of his band performing it live…and what a performance. WARNING This will take a quarter hour out of your day but it IS worth it.
Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.author of ‘Today’s Almost Forgotten Track’
