Sometimes people just blow your mind with their depth of musical knowledge. Professor and author Rob Bowman did that to me this week on the show.
This guy operates on a completely different plane, folks. His musical knowledge is matched only by his passion for it. He's been hired to write for the Stones, Dylan, Rush, and so many others. We talk about his latest book The Flyer Vault, and also Zeppelin's first time in Canada, which Beatles song has eight different hooks, the importance of musical experimentation in live contexts, and the unusual way Keef recorded the demo for Jumpin' Jack Flash. Unreal.
The Rolling Stones - Jumpin' Jack Flash
Bob Dylan - Trying To Get To Heaven
Patti Smith - Horses
Public Enemy - Fight the Power
James Brown - Cold Sweat
