Let's see, ever heard of a guy named Ry Cooder? Or the Grammys? Grammy Award Winner for his collaboration with Ry Cooder, Talking Timbuktu, the first album to debut at #1 on Billboard's World Music Chart, remaining at #1 longer than any other release, and winning Down Beat's Critics Poll for Beyond Album of the Year, Ali Farka Toure is the finest blues guitarist and singer in West Africa, combining traditional Malian songs and rhythms with many outside influences to produce a highly individual style.
Eclectic, maybe. Intelligent, in its own way. Rock? I don\'t think so. :??:
The last time I heard anything like that, my son had thrown his drum set down the stairs. I enjoyed that more. :evil:
Big Paulie be up on his bunk gettin his mojo back.
