Stomping out the Demon
I am on my way to being an ex-smoker. I am ready this time. I need to do it for my health and happiness. If I am not healthy, I won't be happy. Cigarettes are not a health supplement last time I checked.
The info below is provided by the program I am using to help with the quit.
"You've been Quit 2 days. $5.25 and 5 hours of your life saved!"
I am having a hard time getting excited about "I" bands. I know quite a few but none really have changed the face of music for me. Incubus? Billy Idol? Indigo Girls? Isley Brothers? Ink Spots? Iron Maiden? Iggy Pop?
Probably the closest thing to a difference maker in classic rock is Iron Butterfly. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida baby! It never was one of my favorites but it does have a place in my musical past.
A newer "I" band that I enjoy is the native American blues band, Indigenous. I saw them open for Dave Matthews once and enjoyed the set. Excellent rocking blues. The group is comprised of two brothers, Mato Nanji, guitar and vocals , Pte, bass guitar, their sister, Wanbdi , drums and vocals and their cousin, Horse, percussion. Mato Nanji's playing is reminiscent of SRV...that's high praise.
Any more I's that deserve mention?
