CP S15 EP22 2021

Monday May 31, 2021 – Memorial Day 2021 – the unofficial kickoff to the summer vacation season and outdoor live music season, and there’s a lot of that going on right now. Welcome to post-COVID 2021. Of course that doesn’t mean all things are rosy in the world of live music. Please check your local listings.

No major changes in this week’s TOP 5 with just some repositioning and the addition of punk band Discomfort Creature entering due to high spins from Indie 102.3 last week.

In this week’s MMMM: Younger Colorado music fans likely will not know who Eddie “Devil Boy” Turner is. If you were around Colorado in the late 70s and early 80s you might remember Eddie from his days as the lead guitarist for the band Zephyr before Candy Givens died in January 1984.

Eddie disappeared from the scene after Candy died, showing up briefly in Ron Miles Electric Band before being resurrected in 1995 as lead guitarist on five Otis Taylor albums.

Produced by legendary Colorado-born bassist, songwriter and producer Kenny Passarelli (Barnstorm, Elton John) Change In Me is Eddie’s fourth solo album since 2005’s Rise Again which won him the 2006 Blues Foundation Award for Best New Artist Debut.

Middle Class Rock Star is a podcast hosted by  Andy Sydow.  Every week or so I feature a 7 to 8 minute segment featuring  a conversation Andy has with some of our scene’s top music makers and industry personalities.  This week’s guest is Leftover Salmon bassist and producer Greg Garrison.

TOP FIVE WK END MAY 29 2021
