Time to get your glad rags on, grab yourself a hep cat or a cool kitten, and get ready to swing with some solid jive from Geezer Rock. This week, Geezer Rock will get your ears in gear with the tintinnabulations of Featured Geezers, the Texas Horns and their appealing arpeggios. Plus almost from Texas by way of Washington State, there’s a Hendrix-inflected tune by Too Slim and the Taildraggers, from their sixth live album, and Hot Tuna leap right in and do yet another version of “Death Don’t Have No Mercy,” but, mercy me, there’s not one, not two, but three songs about apocalypses. Or is it “apocalypsi”? Who knows? Grammar ain’t got no mercy at Geezer Rock!

This week, Geezer Rock revisits a groovy show from April. Another chance to rock it right! A new song by Ann Wilson, formerly of Heart; some soul music about fake news by Sugar Ray Rayford, Dead-esque boogie from Moonalice, and more. The Featured Geezer is Edgar Winter, who has a new album in tribute to his late brother Johnny, and thats the title of the album"Brother Johnny, and it features a generous selection of Johnnys friends and coworkers.

08/05/2022

This week on Geezer Rock, the magic words are “Peace and Love,” the mantra of Ringo Starr, because there's a brand new Ringo song to share with you. Beyond that, though, Geezer Rock's gonna go all progressive on you, but not in a Vermont-y political way, like you’d expect. So Yes take will take you over the ice bridge to the unknown, Pink Floyd continue to support the people of Ukraine, and you’ll revisit some new versions of some prog-rock classics. And the Featured Geezer is Alan Parsons, who’s got a new studio album called “From the New World,” which is pretty spacy.

After 500-some shows, Geezer Rock takes it a bit easy this week. So, a beloved Boston punk rock band goes just a little bit folkie—doing their very best Woody Guthrie. Singer-songwriter Steve Forbert looks at the synaptic firing in the brains of dogs. And that “man at work,” Colin Hay, returns without his Vegemite sandwich, instead sharing some contemplative musings from “Now and the Evermore.” Check your pulse and dig some Geezer Rock.

07/18/2022

This week on Geezer Rock, you’ll have the chance to possibly enjoy some sounds from both ends of the ecclesiastical and existential realms, some heavenly and not-so-much music, mostly from dualistic musical amalgamations: for instance, the Dirt Band will sample Dylan’s pastries, Jorma and Jack will get shepherded, Taj and Ry are gonna shout “hooray,” Ural Thomas and the Pain will visit heaven, Robin Trower gets kissed in a deadly manner, and Mavis Staples and Levon Helm contemplate the glory of the afterlife.

Once more, Geezer Rock shakes, rattles, and rolls your world with its relentless barrage of new sounds by rockin’ geezers. This week, Jeff delivers some dichotomous new “Fierce Bliss” sounds from Ann Wilson, the once and perhaps future voice of Heart, while Robin Trower settles into the realization that he’s seemingly done—with nothing left to prove—and this week’s Featured Geezer is Joe Bouchard, founding member and bassist with Blue Oyster Cult—currently wielding a guitar and releasing his seventh solo album, the unimaginatively titled “American Rocker.” Get up and get down with Geezer Rock!

Hey now, you're invited to climb on board the Geezer Rock train for your weekly excursion through the vast tundras of time and rhythm. This week, Jeff is Playing for Change, with Carlos Santana, his wife, Cindy Blackman Santana, and a host of musicians from far-flung locations. And the Featured Geezers are the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, who’ve got a new album chock full of Bob Dylan songs—and ONLY Bob Dylan songs. It may take a train to cry, but Geezer Rock will take you around the world with Bob and his kind buds.

05/24/2022

This week on Geezer Rock, Jeff Lindholm is gonna “mellow down easy” with some new tunes by easy-rocking geezers. Mostly acoustic and leaning toward the blues, but “easy” sonically if not always topically-slash-lyrically. These days, perhaps with the problems presented by studio recording with a band while socially distancing, a good bit of new music is just quieter. But people are traveling, at least metaphorically. For instance, Delbert McClinton’s gone to Connecticut to get his blues. And they’re getting together, too, just on a smaller scale. Maria Muldaur’s joined up with Tuba Skinny down New Orleans way, and Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder reached back to the 1950s to offer an homage to two of their blues heroes, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee. Move a little closer to your speakers and mellow down with Geezer Rock.

The Road Goes on Till September: Robert Earl Keen Talks Surprise Retirement

I've only vaguely heard of this guy, don't know his music at all, but this is a great article and he sounds like a nice, thoughtful guy.

He decided, very carefully, to retire from concerts, for COVID and other reasons, including gigs at barbecue joints. Also his plans with his rodeo hero and the last paragraph, about the short hike he took at his worst gig.

Thought you might enjoy it as well. Geezer rock or not to geezer rock!

Geezer Rock this week is all over the place, all over the map, and all over the world. Even out of this world. There’s some spiritual voices singing to high heaven, a bit of blues from Belgium, an alcoholic triple threat from Delbert McClinton, and songs in support of the people of Ukraine, one of which is the first new song from Pink Floyd in 28 years. Says the Floyd’s David Gilmour, “We want to spread this message of peace, and we want to raise the morale of the people who are defending their homeland.” Plus three songs from the Featured Geezers: Mike Campbell and the Dirty K***s!

This week, Geezer Rock forgets the words—but on purpose—with the better half of all of the songs having no words at all. No words that you can’t figure out. No caterwauling vocalists. Just pure melodious instrumental bliss from Canned Heat guitarist Harvey Mandel, former Door Robbie Krieger, the funky riffs of Los Straitjackets, a visit to “Swinging Planet X,” and three—count ‘em, three—surf-rocking numbers from Featured Geezer Susan Surftone. And yeah, yeah, yeah, a few songs with lyrical references, too, from John Mellencamp, Keb’ Mo’, Robert Plant, and Allison Krauss. But mostly just music. Lots and lots of Geezer Rock music.

Geezer Rock this week revisits a past show, delivering a good-sized handful of new music by some of the most outstanding and respected geezer rockers, including some lively Grateful Dead-related music from this week’s Featured Geezers, Steve Kimock and Friends, plus John Mayall joins forces with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ Mike Campbell, who’s now playing guitar with Fleetwood Mac, plus we’ve got Billy Gibbons and Kirk Hammett from the recent Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac tribute concert album. It all comes around on Geezer Rock.

This week’s Geezer Rock Featured Geezers are Walter Parks and the Unlawful Assembly, with Parks being a long-time compatriot of Richie Havens and the Assembly’s music billed as “spirituals reimagined and the songs they inspired,” including a story of biblical healing. We’ve also got a song of barroom calamity from Judy Henske, once the “Queen of the Beatniks,” some mystical juju from Tinsley Ellis, and not one but two remakes of songs long associated with the J. Geils Band. Dig it all the most on Geezer Rock!

On Geezer Rock this week, you will visit a half-century of psychedelically dosed canines who are unleashed and yapping at your heels. Also, Elvis Costello hooks up with an old buddy to go surfing in Japan, and the Featured Geezers are the singularly named Jethro Tull, which, as we all know, is a collective noun comprising Ian Anderson and the other members of that band as he’s currently configured it. So tune in and find out who’s tuning up with Tull this go-round, on Geezer Rock!

HELP WITH GEEZER ROCK?
I'm still looking for someone to help me keep up with the weekly Geezer Rock radio show (heard on 20+ stations around the country). Would you like to hear and share music being made by rockers from the '60s and '70s who still have the power? I could use a co-geezer or two to help produce the show and upkeep the web presence. If you've got the interest and can help, that would be so very fine. Thanks to modern tech, you don't even need to be here in Vermont at GR-HQ! Please let me know.

“The Sun Is Shining Down” on Geezer Rock this week. Literally, because that’s the title of the new record by John Mayall, this week’s Featured Geezer. We’ll have three songs from the 88-year-old Mayall’s 60th album for you. Plus, two sets of geezers, such as Styx, Chrissie Hynde, and the Chocolate Watchband, covering vintage songs by other geezers, including David Bowie, Blind Faith, and Bob Dylan. Plus Jethro Tull decries those lost souls who are “slaves to ideology.” It’s political science you can dance to, this week on Geezer Rock.

This week's Geezer Rock brings you music that was recorded in a barn—and sounds like it, but in a good way—from Neil Young and Crazy Horse. There’s also a three-song set of healing music for these COVID-ic times by Little Feat, Maria Muldaur, and Keb’ Mo’, who croons the most calming and uplifting sounds you’ll hear all week. Plus ZZ Top from three different directions. And an albatross. Fly high, with Geezer Rock.

Geezer Rock this week features 3 by 2: Three songs by Deep Purple from not one but two separate albums—2020’s sadly overlooked album called “Whoosh,” which came out just as COVID hit us all, and “Turning to Crime,” the just-released album of versions of Deep Purple favorites originally done by Bob Seger, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Dylan, Little Feat and many more. There will also be eight minutes of high-weirdness by Neil Young and Crazy Horse, featuring “unexpected flourishes” by Nils Lofgren. Not to mention a garage-rock break-up song by Elvis Costello and lots more—that’s the way it goes, on Geezer Rock!

They say that music can be healing and spiritual, and Geezer Rock sets out to prove that with gospel rock from Walter Parks and the Unlawful Assembly as well as Randy Bachman, not to mention a song about angels in alleyways from Dion, with help by Bruce Springsteen. There’s also lessons on helping your friends and neighbors from some of the most enlightened blues geezers going. Your prayers are answered this week, on Geezer Rock!

But no matter what time you’re in, this week’s Geezer Rock looks back at some of the best of the past year’s Featured Geezers, including Paul McCartney, Suzi Quatro, Peter Frampton, Kansas, the Doobie Brothers, and Allison Krauss and Robert Plant. One song from each of the past 12 months. Ring out the old year and ring in the new with new music by geezers who rock!

By who? You'll have to listen in to find out.
