A great interview with Roger Earl in the Smoky Mountain News by Garret Woodward in anticipation of our Sept. 9th show in Cherokee,NC at the Blue Ridge Run! He chats about the band, it’s history, The Blues, Rock N’ Roll and more.
“GKW: It’s funny that you mention pursuing blues and rock-n-roll rather than pop, because I guess in my perspective, it would show why your music is still relevant — with the blues it only gets better with age, at least in my opinion.
RE: Yeah. You know, one of the things a number of the folks in the States don’t quite realize, is that America gave music to the world, and it has ever since the turn of the [19th] century. Blues, jazz, bebop, all the way through. Especially the 1940s to 1960s, there was a huge amount of music going on.”
