Dr. Rhino's Picks #58
The Stooges are here! Hailing from Ann Arbor, Michigan, these guys were ignored or derided in the ‘60s, only to see their influence become ubiquitous a few decades later.They were loud, rude, dangerous, funny and really really good. Stripping rock ‘n’ roll back to its primal essence, Iggy & co. helped keep music from crawling too far up its own ass. The Stooges also walked the walk. Sadly, the excesses of the era have taken their toll, as most of the band has now passed on to the other side. But the Ig is still here and so is the music. And, it is glorious, my friends, truly glorious. So, let’s all get loose and listen!
ABOUT DR. RHINO
A young Dr. Rhino first encountered the magic of song whilst being born in the front seat of a Lincoln Continental. As the attending physician recalls, the tune was “Touch Me In The Morning” by Diana Ross. It was a mind-blower. Over the years, Dr. Rhino listened to many, many more songs. And, after several summers of diggin’ music, making the scene & a stint in Attica, the good doctor joined Rhino Records. A remarkable career of taste & empathy ensued. Dr. Rhino now spends his time hitting bull’s-eyes, making it rain and assembling playlists for you. (Yes, you!)
