Friday, July 29, 2005 @ L.A. House of Blues is the blessed Rusted Root http://www.rustedroot.com


Rusted Root, of course, is the biggest and badest of the current bands that emulate 60's and 70's music (yet w/ it's own alternative primal twist for a timeless cleansing) - having been noted so in the press - and extensively touring w/ The Allman Bros. Band, Santana, Grateful Dead, Plant & Page, etc.. and, Notably, the only band to ever play at the original Woodstock spot all these years later (also stopping bye and playing Woodstock '99 while on tour w/ Jewel) - Jodie Foster had RR do a rendition of Santana's Evil Ways for her film Home for the Holidays - as well as RR's music being commercially used on many TV and film sountracks).


I look forward to continuing my on the road experience w/ RR and doing some video-ography - as RR is really on top of its game here - releasing its first live (double) CD on its own label Touchy Pegg - (while still gratefully enjoying all the distribution channels it would w/ its former labels Mercury and Island Def Jam) - receiving positively charged audiences on tour to support the new release. (what a story to tell).


Best intent,




P.S.  Alt. Country's little darling star RYan Adams will be playing at Mr. Smalls Theatre May 13th(http://www.mrsmalls.com - owned and operated by Liz Berlin of RR and husband, Mike Speranzo - ProAM Skateboader currently on PLayStation Tour and will be heading Woodward West this summer - Woodward East, near PSU, the biggest board & bike campus).
RYan Adams renting out Small's Theatre and Rock-n-Roll B&B in Pittsburgh for a week before joining the Rolling Stones in Pittsburgh for a stretch - leg of tour - And artists like 50 cent, Black Eyed Peas, Hank Williams 3rd, etc.. also stopping bye to play & record. And brand channels like MTV – For a young complex Mr. Small’s already cited in Esquire Magazine, Women’s Day (something like that) and inbetween.
