Saturday Matinee – How to Relax with your Dog, John Lee Hooker with Bonnie Raitt & Southside Johnny

by

I don’t normally post Twitter vids, but that amused me. Sound up, click play.

Awesome happened in 1994, at Santa Barbara California. Bonnie Raitt meets John Lee Hooker.

By the late 1970s, rock music was in the doldrums, the pits. Almost everything seemed to be corporate-marketing-department-formula-driven-pre-packaged-garbage, and much of it sounded the same. There was so much over-produced audio drek, I started going retro. Then this song hit me, and I liked the vibe.

Sure, Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes spun off from Springsteen’s fame, but I liked them better because they got less radio play.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more stuff.

P.S. We filed a complaint with the WordPress peeps about auto-play advertisements and got a positive response. They asked for a screencap of the offending ad, so I sent one. Let’s see what they do with it.
