Tom Wilson, Colin Linden and Stephen Fearing each
have their own distinctive and successful solo careers.
But when they gather together to make music and tour, they become Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, one of Canada’s best voices in the World of music.
And to have them sit for a group interview backstage at The Commodore Ballroom was just sublime.
They are my featured guests on Saturdays Stew – plus another 90 minutes of killer tracks.
Blackie & the Rodeo Kings originally formed in 1996 when Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and LEe HARVeY OsMOND came together to record what was suppose to be a one- off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett...the rest is history!
As promised Blackie and The Rodeo Kings deliver the companion to their 2011 collaboration album KINGS and QUEENS. While KINGS and QUEENS featured guest appearances from some of the band’s favourite female singers, this album, titled KINGS and KINGS features some of the band’s best “guy” friends from the world of roots, blues and country. Each one of them an accomplished KING in their realm of creative endeavours and in many cases absolute KING legends in the entertainment industry.
TONIGHT – Two legends in one interview.
Blackie and the Rodeo Kings AND The legendary Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver.
Hanging out Backstage. Oh the stories we could tell.
