I’m not a fan of Slash’s music but this picture taken of the former Guns n’ Rose’s star at the sold out show at Ram’s Head Live last Thursday is really awesome. Photo by Andy Jones. More photos can be seen here

BobbyRushSharpDARK

Bobby Rush Saturday at the Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival showing us why he was chosen the BB King Entertainer of the Year at the recent blues awards as he not only sang great blues but also spent time laughing, talking trash and getting a little raunchy especially when his two dancers were shaking their big butts ! A really great day of blues under a very pleasant sky until the end of Beth Hart’s set when it started raining causing a one hour delay before Greg Allman came out and performed to a much smaller, very wet crowd.
