Only recently discovered by me through Justified, a pretty good show and they presented him really really well. Producer had to be a fan

His brother Phil's pretty cool as well. After the Blasters split, he went to grad school to study mathematics and AI. He now has a PhD from UCLA.

Word is that Randy California's parents ran The Ashgrove in the 60's thus giving him a chance to play with Hendrix. Cool bit of obscure trivia.

Yeah!! He actually played "Harlan County Line", from his last album, "Eleven Eleven". Fabulous album, BTW.

I've never smoked in my life and that's what I thought he was singing too. As a non-smoker, it wasn't making much sense.

If Dave is playing anywhere near you, you should try to get to his shows. Really good shows.

Godalmighty, will the blues never END?

Used to be such a good radio station, now it is like a blues history lesson ever freaking hour.

Is there something like RP that doesn't play all this blues crap?

Christ this is horrible!

 
No. The Blues will never end. They are an integral part of a life in self-reflection, a recapitulation of pain and sorrow, transmogrified into joy and a looking-forward attitude.

Dave is great solo, but if you can see him with his bandmates in The Knitters (Exene, John Doe, and D.J. Bonebreak from the band X) you are in for a show. I saw them at HSB 7, and they were phenominal. {#Wave}
