“I wish they had taken a few weeks to make it. It’s fine for us freaks.” – Little Steven
From Springsteen to The Kinks, Elvis Costello is not above tipping his fedora to other artists.
This week, E Street Band guitarist Little Steven Van Zandt will be honored by Little Kids Rock with their annual “Big Man Of The Year” award. The nonprofit organization, which works to restore and revitalize music education in disadvantaged public schools, has honored Clarence Clemons, Bernie Williams and Lady Gaga in the past.
Let’s take a look at this week’s albums, reissues and other musical goodies from classic artists making musical waves yet again.
