Songwriter and guitarist for Kentucky's rockin' beardos My Morning Jacket, who open for Pearl Jam Tuesday and Wednesday (May 9 and 10) at the Air Canada Centre.
Bobby Bare Jr. - The Longest Meow
"I got lucky enough to be invited up to the recording session for this record. There is only one Bobby Bare Jr. - and this is him at his finest. It doesn't come out for another coupla months - but hey, I'm listening now."
Sly and the Family Stone - There's A Riot Goin' On
"Good sweet Jesus, what a dark and dirty and delicious album. I can taste the carpet and the drugs and the dirt on the walls and the feeling of the time period this was recorded in. Family Affair is one of the greatest songs ever committed to tape."
The Velvet Underground - Loaded
"I used to hate the Velvet Underground when I was a kid. I was a stupid kid. There are times on this record when the harmonies remind me of the Grateful Dead or the Band, and it just made me realize how great it is to grow up. In other words, it blew my mind."
