R.I.P. Poly Styrene

Although they only released two albums over 20 years, X-Ray Spex are Punk legends. Poly Styrene (born Marian Joan Elliott-Said) was the iconic frontwoman for the English act.

The Empress of Gulf Coast Soul, Miss Barbara Lynn, is a blues legend. This left-handed guitarist, singer and songwriter was born in Beaumont, Texas in 1942 and had her first hit single “You’ll Lose A Good Thing” in 1962. She has toured with Otis Redding, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, B.B. King and her song “Oh Baby (We Got A Good Thing Goin’)” was recorded by the Rolling Stones in 1965. After taking time off to raise her three children, she is back and playing shows again. I have had the privilege of seeing her three times, once with her Son, and she is awe-inspiring. Here is Barbara Lynn performing “What’d I Say” on The !!!! Beat Show in 1966. Follow  Read More
