“The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.”
― Kurt Cobain

 

The World seems crazy at times. Leading the current craziness is the USA and it appears to start right at the very top.

Having been right in the middle of the 60’s and 70’s musical revolution, lead by the songs of Dylan and voices of Joan Baez, CSN&Y, Bob Marley, etc many wonder if the voice of music is at play today.
Many of the songs we’re playing now were written and recorded during the election process and the many months of Trump in office.  Traditionally there has always been push back from artists. Many giving voice to those who don’t have one.

(The Protest Song Part Two is currently taking shape.  Coming in the Fall.)

It starts with Steven Fearing and his single “Blowhard Nation”

Followed by comments from

Joel Plaskett

The Wood Brothers

Leeroy Stagger

Ron Sexsmith

Blackie and the Rodeo Kings

(Colin Linden, Tom Wilson, Steven Fearing)

Alan Doyle

Bob Rock

Susan Tedeschi

Derek Trucks

Is there is a push back from the music makers? If so, where is it and who is it?
How did the election and presidency affect your new songs?
Is there room for protest songs in today’s music and radio?

Mulligan Stew Aug 3rd 2019- David Hood and Leland Sklar Interview

hello

When you think about certain classic hits or artists

I never loved a man- Aretha

I’ll take you there – Staple Singers

Brown Sugar – Stones

Wilson Pickett – Mustang Sally

Paul Simon – Still Crazy

Etta James – Tell mama

When a man loves a woman – Percy Sledge

You think of the bass player at Muscle Shoals – David Hood

Or When you hear  James Taylor, Warren Zevon, Linda Ronstadt, Phil Collins, Lyle Lovett,  Jackson Browne, Randy Newman, Leonard Cohen and CSN and Youngyou think of that bass player – Leland Sklar.  Long white hair and beard.

They’ve never met or been interviewed together.  Until this Saturdays Stew.

Terry found both at the Vancouver Island Music Festival and turned complete fanboy.

Things they talked about

Difference between music’s crazy drummers and bass players.

“we’re the guys who hold the band together..even if the people around us don’t even know we do it.”  David

“we’re the glue.  The liaison between the melodic and rhythmic.”  Leland

Both talked about “how one bass note can change the character in a hit”

Both talked about Muscle Shoals, Booker T and Stax, The Wrecking Crew and the LA session cats.

Leland says of David  “David developed a style of music that defined a locale”

David says  “It’s not just me it’s the rest of the Muscle Shoals guys.  I just keep it simple”

Leland adds “ what’s the least I can do to make this work”

Leland describes being in the studio and putting on his headphones..what he hears is “Barbara Streisand singing in his ears with a full orchestra.”

And most interesting we ended up talking about Miles Davis and –  “the space between the notes”

Ep | 67 David Hood Meets Leland Sklar. From Mustang Sally to Fire & Rain

hello

Aug 3, 2019

This Summer,  In the middle of a rainforest in Courtenay/Comox at the Vancouver Island Music Festival two of the most famous bass players in popular music met for the very first time.

David Hood – from Muscle Shoals Alabama finally met Leland Sklar from Los Angeles.

David  Hood was part of the legendary studio musicians at FAME and Muscle Shoals Studios who shaped some of the most famous hits ever made. For Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Paul Simon, The Rolling Stones, and The Staple Singers.

In LA,  Leland Sklar has recorded over 2000 albums for artists including Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Warren Zevon, Randy Newman, Linda Ronstadt and many more.

They hold the unique distinction of being “makers of memories” through the music they helped to create.

Great bass players are the glue that holds the band together.

What makes bass players special?  Memorable bass tracks?

Did they follow each other’s careers?

The key to surviving and thriving for all those sessions, all those artists and those albums?

 

David Hood meets Leland Sklar..
