A couple of weeks ago, I was reminded of this video from a friend's Facebook posting. I wrote about this video awhile back; the video successfully went viral (14.5M views!) and I love how social media keeps the good things coming back.
Before I ever came to NYC I spent quite a bit of time dreaming of doing so. I wanted it to be a world where everyone was as cool as Mink DeVille. He definitely gets some of the credit for moving me off the basic R&R focus and onto the wild and diverse turf that is American music. Now, having realized our loss this week, I realize I have missed all the great stuff he did after those first few albums. I may have to start to buy music again!
"Playing For Change" combines three of my fave things in one nice package.
