Mick's Music Messages:

February 6, 2011

In honor of the legendary guitarist Gary Moore, I asked my friend Mick Houser, bassist and vocalist of Dr. Mudd and Shinebox to allow me to post his thoughts on the late artist.

We got news that Gerry Rafferty has passed away today. I have to admit, this is a favorite singer/songwriter whom I took for granted. Always there with his smooth familiar voice, always on the radio. Mr. Rafferty, we've loved you so much at Bluebirdreviews, that last year you were voted into our classic remake section. Our friends over at Dr. Mudd do a stunning cover of "Stuck in the Middle". It's been you, Gerry - "Right Down the Line."

If you get a chance, download "City to City" or better yet, stalk your local record store for the LP.

Entertainment Weekly did a fabulous piece honoring him and covering his history and popular songs. Check it out:
