Friday Night Music


Bobby Womack was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last week. I absolutely love this song "Across 110th Street" from a movie by the same name starring Anthony Quinn and Yaphet Kotto. Quintan Tarrantino used this song on his movie Jackie Brown and Ridley Scott used it on American Gangster. Congratulations Bobby Womack!

The first woman who played rock and roll...Wanda Jackson also inducted this past week. Congrats Ms. Jackson! Roseanne Cash inducted her...nice!

Flea inducted Metallica into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...and his speech is just so awesome. One of the best speeches ever in this awards ceremony.

Two turntables and a microphone! This induction speech by Eminem is also awesome for Run DMC.

wow that Wanda Jackson piece just rocks doesn't it? I love the way the horn added colour. Very nice indeed. She still tours around, and occasionally even comes to Toronto and plays the Cadillac Lounge down on Queen W. I bet she still rocks!!

She does still rock. I've seen her a number of times but probably not as many as our pal Drew!
