The Meters have today’s almost forgotten track

The Meters are a band that many have heard of but, if they’ve heard them, it was usually backing others like Dr. John, Robert Palmer, and others…they were, in the 70s, the equivalent in New Orleans to LA’s Wrecking Crew in the 60s, or the Motown or Stax house bands, backing up countless others while also making their own records…it’s not easy to find live performances by them, but this should suffice for those in need of a little N’Awlins funk.

 

Greg Simpson

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.
