ROCKIN' THE BLUES AND SHARIN' THE NEWS!

Music Monday - Watch Now!

Playing Hideaway with John Mayall is a highlight many nights on tour for the audience.  Since Eric Clapton's iconic performance of the Freddie King classic on the Beano album in 1966, it has become a standard that is requested, expected and never disappoints.  

This week's Music Monday showcases a classic live performance by John Mayall and myself brought to you by The Stickman, John Muggianu.  This 11-year old Canadian drummer is digging deep into blues history to show his appreciation for the art form as he demonstrates his skill at rockin' the blues with the legend.

When Eric Clapton recorded Hideaway in 1966, he played it on a Les Paul with a rock guitar tone and I was inspired by his approach because it was fresh and innovative.   Today I am inspired by The Stickman and his innovative approach to rockin' the blues and sharin' it with me!   It's so awesome to see young people turned on to music and I would be lying if I didn't tell you how big my smile was when I watched this.  I bet you will be smiling, too!  Thank you for sharin' with us and keep rockin' & bluesin', my friend!
