Charlie Louvin's 2010 CD release

Unfortunately cancer has taken it’s toll on Country music legend Charlie Louvin. But he did give the devil a good run for his money and fought the good fight. Charlie Louvin and his brother Ira rode the top of the charts and hit number one in 1955. Ira lost his life ten years later in an auto accident, but Charlie, in unfailing memory of his brother Ira, pressed on for decades to bring the fans the great music that he and his brother had created. Please see our tribute today in damngoodtunes.com

The Steve Miller Band once again is taking the world by storm as they have traveled across North America and now into Europe. Correspondent for damngoodtunes.com, Rocky Nelson brought us the Steve Miller Interview part 1 last month and now the very candid and personal follow-up has been posted.

 This part 2 interview takes place in Paris France where Nelson meets up with Miller again is a real bonus for avain Steve Miller fans and certainly for the DGT. One would have to agree that there are not many journalists who will be stateside and tell an artist like Steve Miller, ” hey man, I’ll see you in Paris this Fall. What do ya say? ” And that’s exactly how it went down. Rocky had some time to travel and hang out in Europe before he had to return to his ” day ” job working for the Army Corp Of Engineers over in Afghanastan where he was expected December 13th.

Anyway, this is a great interview and you out to just start with part 1 if you haven’t already done so, then go on to the conclusion. Once again damngoodtunes.com has reached world-class status with this classy interview of one of the coolest guys, hottest guitar players on the planet, Steve Miller. Also we have included Miller’s own video interview and sound-stage preparation for the world tour as an extra feature.

End of October

The Autumn season has brought us lots of great news and recaps of the past Summer’s events. Not all the news is fun to report as was the case this last month when the world lost two more artists who were either on the cutting edge or the head of their genre as we reported to you in the recent damngoodtunes.com. Eyedea, or Michael Larsen as known to those who knew him the most, a young American lost his life at a tragic early age while Gregory Isaacs of Jamaica who although had a good life with many records and world wide fans, was also way too young to die. But then, that’s not up for us to decide now is it? We never try to go into the preachy side of life or sway one way or another politically however we feel it is important to acknowledge the passing of artists and writers who have helped to shape our world with music and beats.
And so onward we must go and positive we shall be to bring you the news of all things music and particularly Indie.
Why you may ask should this matter? Why do we do this? What if not for money would we possibly call consideration in our mission. Simply the answer is that I had a vision saying there was a way to level the slanted playing field for songwriters and performing artists all over the world, and that was to provide free press and exposure for as many as we might. We began our journey in 2007 working in a small office slightly appointed , yet free from the hustle and bustle of Urban chaos. In that room we reached out to the world VIA this medium, our friend, the internet. And you responded. Bands, producers and engineers from all countries and all walks of life took notice of the fledgling DGT and found that we were real, accessible and ethical. We won your trust. Now we are read from all corners of the globe and you the fans and readers, the artists and bands and countless others who support the industry – you have given us the strength to carry on and take this publication to the next levels. And that we will do.
Watch this coming week of November when we bring you brand new articles and features. Peace to all!
