Dedicated to everyone who "believed" and ended up with a broken heart....
These guys are my new favorite band. The Dead South. I didn't know I liked banjos and bluegrass that much, but apparently I do. They're Canadian, but I still can't believe they're not from Kentucky. They put on a heck of a live show, maybe the best concert I've ever seen.

Adriano Celentano said: "Ever since I started singing, I was very influenced by American music and everything Americans did. So at a certain point, because I like American slang—which, for a singer, is much easier to sing than Italian—I thought that I would write a song which would only have as its theme the inability to communicate. And to do this, I had to write a song where the lyrics didn't mean anything."
There is a documentary called "Hired Gun" on Netflix. It is a general documentary about how music is made. Hired Gun is the term assigned to the musicians that play in a band, and in some cases sing in the recording studio, that are just hired by the "Star" and unfortunately go from playing for millions of people on tour one week to being homeless the next.(all while the star rolls in the big money)
It is a very eye opening documentary about how most of the players that record the albums aren't even in the band!!!! What blows my mind is that some of the songs are even sung by and recorded by people not in the band!!!!
You just thought Ted Nugent sang Strangle hold.
This documentary covers a huge array of musical genres. (even the Ghost busters theme)
Billy Joel.... Country....MoTown...Pop...Rock...Heavy Metal. A hand full of "Studio Musicians" are the ones who have recorded most of ALL the music people listen too. So when you buy a CD to listen too, you aren't even listening to the band you thought you were.
If you like music WATCH IT!
Here is a powerful video. If this doesn't tear you up you have no heart.
I guess I could have saved this for Two for Tuesday, but I just didn't want to .
I haven't seen the documentary but I agree there are a lot of great musicians on thousands of albums that few have ever heard of.
Case in point: Leland Sklar.
