All My Heroes
First in the line of songs on this record to echo the “Heroes” theme, this one came about as I was musing over the fact that so many of my musical heroes are no longer with us. I chose four such individuals who literally changed the world, musically as well as socially. Elvis gave us “Rock N Roll.” Lennon and The Beatles changed it forever, opening the door to a wave of creativity the likes of which we may never see again. Jimi may just be the greatest guitarist who has ever lived. Sure there are players who can copy his licks note for note, but Jimi played them with “soul.” No one will ever copy that. Then there was Janis, the lady who could sing the blues, like no other. Her art was something special.
