Hello and welcome to my linkin' blog. My name is Andrew (a.k.a. Sauce) and I am a 34-year-old Southern guy with a love of film, music, art, theater, technology and The Muppets. Since I was already in the habit of emailing a lot of my friends and family with nuggets of the web, this format allows me to do just that. Read it or not, there's always gonna be something here that piques my interest that I felt was worth sharing with y'all.
This was a role that Peter O’Toole admitted he went after saying, “Yes, I wanted that. I just knew that the time was right in my own age to move into my 50’s, if you follow me, and THE STUNT MAN and I fitted each other perfectly.”
If you enjoy classic, psychedelic folk rock, you NEED to give Jonathan Wilson’s music a listen. He’s is credited with updating the “Laurel Canyon” sound, which initially helped define musical acts in the 60’s and 70’s such as The Byrds, The Mamas & the Papas, Buffalo Springfield, Joni Mitchell and Crosby, Stills & Nash, among many others. Wilson has collaborated with a who’s who of artists over the 5-6 years and has gone onto produce the first two albums by Dawes and the debut album of Father John Misty last year. I first learned of Wilson’s solo work by happy accident after hearing an interview with him on NPR's “All Things Considered” about 2 years ago when his album “Gentle Spirit" was released via Bella Union and which turned out to be one of my favorite albums of 2011. Anyway, here’s a teaser for his upcoming album “Fanfare”, which will be released on October 15th. You can also hear a full track from the album here.
