RINGO STARR & HIS ALL STARR BAND AT HARRAH’s STIR COVE, IA

By Posted on 0 3

Ringo Starr at Harrah’s Stir Cove, Council Bluffs, IA, USA August 23 2019.

The show was at capacity with about 4,000 people.

What they were treated to was a night of hit songs delivered by the best cover band touring. Ringo and His All Starr Band featured members of Toto, Santana, Men at Work and the Average White Band. And, The Beatles.
For two hours, the band worked through its many hits. That included “Don’t Pass Me By” and “I Wanna Be Your Man,” but also “Black Magic Woman,” “Rosanna,” “Pick Up the Pieces,” “Evil Ways,” “Who Can It Be Now?,” “Africa” and “Oye Como Va.”And those songs were done by their creators — Steve Lukather, Hamish Stuart, Gregg Rolie, Colin Hay, each also incredibly talented musicians.

“Every one of you in the audience will know at least one song,” Ringo said.
After taking the stage to sing “Matchbox,” “It Don’t Come Easy” and “What Goes On,” which Ringo said was the only song credited to Lennon-McCartney-Starkey (a credit he felt should be reversed), Ringo stepped behind the drum kit and pounded out the beat for his colleagues’ songs.
In fact, the only time he didn’t play drums was when he was singing lead, and he definitely spent more time with the sticks than he did with a microphone in his hand.But when he did, the audience absolutely came alive.
When Ringo did his versions of “You’re Sixteen” and “Act Naturally,” they were excited.When he did his hit song “Photograph,” they sang every word. But when he came back to the front of the stage to sing “With a Little Help From My Friends”,It was the moment they waited for all night, and it was a spectacular thing to behold: A cool night, beloved icon and everyone there united by the song.
“Thank you, thank you!” Ringo said, as he did many times that night. “Peace and love!”.

RODNEY CROWELL’S NEW ALBUM ‘TEXAS’ WITH RINGO STARR, STEVE EARLE

By Posted on 0 3

Venerable Americana songwriter’s latest LP, featuring Vince Gill, Willie Nelson and more, arrives this week

“I’ve tried hard to leave here but never did could,” Rodney Crowell sings in “Deep in the Heart of Uncertain Texas,” a shuffling, picturesque highlight from his latest LP Texas, a musical tribute to the Houston-born singer-songwriter’s roots. Willie Nelson, Ronnie Dunn, and Lee Ann Womack, a trio of fellow Lone Star State luminaries, join Crowell on the song’s chorus, a highlight of the new album produced by Crowell with Ray Kennedy.

“It’s interesting to me — and I consider this a success — that so many high-profile performers contribute to the end result without derailing the narrative,” says Crowell, whose slate of guest artists on the record includes Ringo Starr, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Vince Gill, Randy Rogers, Lyle Lovett, and Steve Earle. Propelled by Crowell’s dazzling gift for language, whether quirky, poignant or both at once, the songs of Texas are planted in deep, rich roots with the blues, rock & roll, dancehall honky-tonk, and cowboy balladry sprouting and thriving side-by-side. Throughout the LP, the captivating tunesmith unlocks searing images and a wide array of the musical styles represented in the vast landscape of his birthplace.

“Of course, we did the work of recording Texas and I did the work of writing the songs, but from the start there was a kind of mystical evidence that if I’d just stay out of the way,” he says, “this album would more or less make itself.”
