CLA Radio 12/29/17: Rick Danko

What:  In honor of the anniversary of Rick Danko‘s birth, a stroll through mostly material by The Band, with an emphasis on stuff that Rick sang primary vocal on. (Although Levon figures heavily vocally in a few, not surprisingly.)

Rick wasn’t the most technically proficient bassist you’ll ever hear, but he was a giant as far as I’m concerned. A huge influence on my playing, although he bears no blame for me having been a pedestrian bassist.

When: Friday, December 29, 2017; 6:00 PM Pacific/9:00 PM Eastern.

(We usually start a bit later than the scheduled time, because Generalissimo’s Aftershow generally runs late, but this week Duane is off, so we start at the scheduled time.)

Where: Duane FM in the Hughniverse (subscription required).

Spotify playlist: Here.
