Hello,

Just sending this out there to anyone who might enjoy listening to alternative blues. This is a sound cloud link to an old blues song, Worried About You by my old band T-BONES.

https://soundcloud.com/user-215621158/1-worried-about-you

This is the 30th Anniversary year of the release of "stripped to the bone." That cd sold all over the world. To commemorate that anniversary I will be releasing a new cd of new "old" blues songs that I had hoped to record in the studio.

I have a Facebook page for my upcoming new music and also have been posting tons of unreleased T-BONES concert music, live on the radio, etc. for free listens

You will find this page if you input this into the Facebook search box: Bruce Madden Original Music & More

Or you can use this link to take you there:

Bruce,

Great harmonica work!

I see it was from Club Eastbrook - went to a few shows there when it was the Orbit Room.....

some great performers passed thru there through the years, didn't they!



Thanks for the link - can I put you on a CD for my own personal listening?

Or do you have one for sale?

Thanks, Randall. You can use that. There will be a new cd for sale in the near future but these others I am offering for free.
Club Eastbrook had some great shows. One of the concerts that was memorable was opening twice there for B.B. King.

re: LInk to my old band: Unreleased Live!

Hi Randall,
I actually met B.B. King the first time at Devos Hall when another band I was in opened for him. After both bands played and after that show was finished, I introduced myself and told him a story about my father meeting him around 1951 or thereabouts in Texas. He was pretty cool and told me he actually did remember my father sitting in with him. He said my father was the only white man to enter that bar, and then ask to sit in...well he wouldn't forget something like that.
A few years later, my own band opened for him (two shows) at Club Eastbrook. We talked again there and he was very nice. The first show was nearly all white and the later show was mostly African American attendees. Both shows were wild. I liked the fact, at these two shows, he thanked us for opening up for him. Unfortunately, the management of Club Eastbrook would not allow my soundman to record our portion of those shows off the board. This was not uncommon opening for various people there and at other venues back then.

re: LInk to my old band: Unreleased Live!

Bruce,

Great story!

And what a great memory for you! It's always a thrill for me to meet legendary
musical talents in person. I've met and talked with a small handful thru the years
and so far have had wonderful experiences with all of them.

I was also in a band - years ago - but we never recorded or even had original music.
But it was a fun time in my life.


Thanks for the OK to put your music on disc - you will fit well on the shelf between
the Talking Heads and Susan Tedeschi!

Incidentally, I did get to meet and talk with Susan Tedeschi when she was in Grand Rapids at Blues On The Mall...very nice down-to-earth lady.

re: LInk to my old band: Unreleased Live!

I also wrote and or edited the Music Revue (in its earliest years) and for Grand Rapids Press: My biggest fear was that I would interview people whose music I really liked but they would prove to be not very nice. Thank goodness, that was unfounded. I only had one experience where I would categorize the person as an $%&*#@.

Glad you found a spot. What instrument did you play?

I can see why you have no interest in classical music.

For clarity, if I was a drummer I would not be playing classical drum tracks so not much interest in the genre. In other genres, drummers have a much stronger role. On youtube, you can listen to drum covers for all sorts of music...just not much classical.

You might find more classical recordings that feature the half of a drummer: percussionist.
Just a thought.

Sounds like Sandy Nelson had a rival in Musicman. Let there be drums was his hit I seem to recall.
There was also a drum solo/cooperation of two drummers on one of the Celtic Women concerts (Slane Castle?).
As a young lad I remember my dad taking me to one of the Proms concerts at the Albert Hall and we were quite close to the drum section, the size of the huge drum and the force the guy hit it with has stayed with me for near 70 years.
Always enjoyed the drum intro to Lonnie Donegans Frankie and Johnnie.

Referencing drummers, I recommend you check out any number of Youtube videos of Sina -

fantastic up-and-coming young female drummer!


And drums are not her only talent!

re: LInk to my old band: Unreleased Live!

I am working on a drum and possibly harmonica(s) track that will kick off my new album by the way. Haven't made up my mind yet but am leaning toward go. Total of 10-12 tracks or so. The title: Through The Amp.
