Freed / The Red River Hogs: played my local Mr. Kyps venue last evening. A great gig which the body and soul were in dire need of the recharge. My old school buddy and Hogs' guitar/vocalist, Mike O'Hara, told me that if he hadn't listened to John Mayall and Eric Clapton's 'Bluesbreakers' and Cream's 'Fresh Cream' albums in my bedroom in our formative years, his life wouldn't have worked out quite how it has. Adequately flattered, it's great knowing that I have been influential.
But then Voodoo Vegas and American Dog have written songs inspired by the Burridge psychology, for which I am also grateful.
