Bayfront Blues Festival Artist Canned Heat [INTERVIEW]

The 26th Annual Bayfront Blues Festival will have legendary Canned Heat headlining Saturday, August 9th, from 9:15-10:30. I interviewed the band historian and drummer since 1967, and he's the author of the best music book I've ever read, 'Living The Blues', Fito de la Parra.

Over the past several years, I've had the privilege of interviewing many of the artists, and they all look forward to playing here. The first reason is because of the beautiful scenery, right by the lake. One artist mentions it to another, and word gets around fast in the blues community that Duluth is the place to play.

Living The Blues, Canned Heat’s Story of Music, Drugs, Death, Sex and Survival [REVIEW)

Over the years I've read hundreds of books on music, but in all honesty, this is by far the best, and most thorough I've ever read. Where many other band books may briefly touch on the dark side of music, my friend, Fito de la Parra holds nothing back. He tells it exactly as it was, with brutal honesty.
