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. He tells us not only the story of Canned Heat, but also about the bands they played with, the historic Woodstock story, his playing with groups like the Shirelles, Platters, Shirley & Lee, Mary Wells, Etta James and many more.

David Lee Roth Finishes New Album Watch Him Sing “Happy”

"Happy" is a song written by Pharrell Williams, but I have seen many versions of it on the internet, this one is the strangest. Of course you have to listen to David Lee Roth talk a little about himself, but you can hear a version of David doing it then he sings with a vocal band.

Why You’ll Want to Attend This Year’s Bayfront Blues Festival

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.
