Liner Notes (November 30th)

Gary Rossington, Paul Simon and Neil Diamond make up the November 30th edition of “Liner Notes.”  Rock on!

Gary Rossington Offers Health Update

It sounds like Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Gary Rossington is getting closer to being back to full-strength after dealing with various heart issues in 2016.

In a recent interview with the Florida Times-Union, Rossington says he’s “feeling real good and trying to take care of myself and living healthy.”

Skynyrd had to cancel a number of tour dates this year, so here’s hoping for a busy 2017 back on the road!

 

New Paul Simon Collaboration Now Streaming

Paul Simon is branching out and working with some unlikely musicians these days.  The legendary singer-songwriter just released the track “Stranger” (embedded below), a remix by Nico Segal and Nate Fox of The Social Experiment combining “The Werewolf” and “The Clock” from his new album Stranger to Stranger.  Definitely a different sound for Simon, but we rather like it!
