Return of the rock heroes


Jim Miller

Excerpt:

For both, performing and recording solo has been a way of rediscovering voice — not just a nuanced singing voice, free from roar of amplifications, but also a compelling artistic voice — a simpler, more ‘authentic’ means of communicating with the audience. Like the folk troubadour — and like the rock and roll heroes of the ’60s — they offer their music as a mirror on common hopes and desires. They are both anomalies, old-fashioned performers resurrecting an old-fashioned ethos of integrity. It is a noble part of the rock and roll tradition — One that lesser artists long ago left for dead.
