Garage Rock Singer-Songwriter, Dan Sartain Dies aged 39

The Alabama rocker, who opened for the White Stripes and had a prolific run of records, died on Saturday.

According to Pitchfork, Sartain’s manager, Shaun Christie confirmed that the Alabama garage-rock musician Dan Sartain passed away at the age of 39 on Saturday March 20th. However, the cause of his death has not been revealed.

Sartain was born and grew up in Fairfield, Alabama before eventually ending up in Birmingham and got involved in the music scene in the early 2000s.

Dan Sartain self-released his first two albums in the early 2000s including ‘Crimson Guard’ (2001) and ‘Romance in Stereo’ (2002),and then signed to the local label Skybucket for a limited edition tour album called Sartain Family Legacy 1981-1998. He incorporated elements of garage-rock, punk, blues, country, and old-school rock and roll throughout his 20-year run.

In 2007,Sartain opened for the White Stripes.“Touring with the White Stripes was my Rocky Balboa moment,” he told Music Mecca in an interview last year. “I was a virtually unknown barroom singer, and I went the distance with the champ.I don’t feel like I’m cut out for stadium touring, but there were a few times where we got some good licks in.” He released a single on ‘Third Man’ in 2009.

In 2020, he released the Western covers album ‘Western Hills’ and a collection of songs he recorded in Memphis’ iconic Sun Studio. He also made a collaboration with Ganxsta Nip last summer,and donated all the funds to the Black Lives Matter Global Network.

A GoFundMe to raise money for Sartain’s funeral costs has already surpassed its initial goal, but the organizers are still accepting donations.

Paul Myers brings new life to “Live and Let Die”

Myers has brought new life to this traditional hit song, “Live and Let Die”, and I adore his refreshed version, which draws on the more rugged parts of the song.

Myers uses his epic, powerful guitar riffs, and raspy vocals to enhance the rocky side of this song. Notice the gentle reggae vibe on the second verse, which is extremely unusual, but praises the energy of this song beautifully.

Myers performs with such powerful emotion and intensity that it’s impossible not to appreciate his talent. If you’re a lover of The Beatles and Paul McCartney you will adore Paul Myers, I certainly do!

“Live and Let Die” was first recorded in October 1972, by Wings, a British-American rock band. Re-recorded by Paul Myers in June 2015. Myers has a unique knack for reproducing music from The Beatles and Paul McCartney and making them his own, while staying true to the initial ideology of the song.

Is Ted Nugent’s New Video Really Back On The Charts?

Music has the power not only to set the mood or to uplift us when we are sad or when we feel down. It also has the power to influence us in the way we think or the way we see things in life. It can be said that you can even educate ourselves about what is happening in the world today through music. The lyrics that each songwriter makes reflect their deepest thought and opinions on certain matters at the moment or even on things which are mostly the subject of controversy in society. Many artists come to mind who do not only perform songs but really use their platforms to express their opinions. Some might find it annoying or intimidating. But that is just how they are.

The Fame of Ted Nugent

Ted Nugent got his fame first as the lead guitarist of the famous band The Amboy Dukes. They were founded in the year 1963. This singer, song-writer is also known not just for their hard rock performances but his song which has well deep meanings and reflections. After The Amboy Dukes was disbanded, Nugent then decided to go solo. This is where his songwriting really came to life. He later became famous not only in the United States of America but also in the world. To the earlier generations, he has made the music even better.

However, since fame does not last forever unless you have a grand slam on successive recognitions and awards from the music community, the new and younger generations now hardly remember Ted Nugent or some do not even know his name at all.

His Great Come Back

With a simple click of your fingers, you can easily find Ted Nugent. These days, people are always online and it is impossible to miss things that create a buzz in the social network. Ted Nugent made his comeback, as what some people say in 2020. A video was uploaded on Facebook which led again to the instant fame of Ted Nugent. The rocker was seen performing along with other artists as well. However, his performance was particularly put in the spotlight because the song he performed was said to have touched topics that are political such as the US Elections. Also, one reason he is on top of the charts is that his song shared some of his podcasts on Spirit Campfire.
