These kids are already Rock Dogs, playing The Freight & Salvage, other clubs and fairs, and playing their own songs. Songwriter/session player Chris Solberg, formerly of Santana, is working with them in the studio recording their first CD.
The Blondies are lead singer and guitarist Simon Lunche; lead guitarist Zak Meghrouni-Brown; bassist Frank Kloptowski; drummer Paul Davis; and keyboardist Jerry Feist. The kids have been playing for six years.
How cool is that? Just when you think rock music is nothing more than over-blown spectacles like Lady Gaga, here comes the next generation of kids weaned on Cream, The Kinks, and The Beatles. Whew, a breath of fresh air. Thank you, boys. To show how small a world we live in, I coached Frank’s cousin in high school baseball. When these guys came in for their photo shoot, I was blown away by their prowess.
This kind of stuff makes it all worthwhile.
