RICH DAVENPORT ROCK SHOW - Southern Rock Special

Monday, August 11, 2014


Rich Davenport's Rock Show this week features a mammoth Southern Rock Special, focusing on The Outlaws and their family tree, and is available now for streaming at this link

In the first hour, Outlaws vocalist Henry Paul talks about the band's plans for 2015, which marks the 40th anniversary of the release of the band's debut album, and spills the beans on their plans for a new record. Henry also talks about the new album from his Acoustic /Roots/Americana band Blackhawk (also featuring members of the Outlaws), and its title track 'Brothers of the Southland', co-written by former Survivor member Jim Peterik (Pride of Lions), which pays tribute to fallen heroes of the Southern Rock genre, and features a guest guitar solo from Ed King, formerly of Lynyrd Skynyrd. You can hear this track on the show, plus another song from the new Blackhawk record, and a classic from their first album.

Also in part 1, former Outlaws bassist Harvey Dalton Arnold discusses his new acoustic Blues album, 'Outlaw', and reflects on his recent reunion with former Outlaws compadres Henry Paul and Monte Yoho. Harvey selects tracks from 'Outlaw' (available from ) and also a track from the Outlaws' classic 'Hurry Sundown' album.

In part two, former Outlaws drummer David Dix looks back on the history of the band, from their formative days in 1967, through the 70s and 80s, and then on to the reunion in 2005. David charts the ups and downs of the band's career during his time behind the drums, and chooses his favourite songs from 'Bring It Back Alive', 'Playin' To Win', 'In The Eye Of The Storm', 'Ghost Riders', 'Los Hombres Malo' and 'Soldiers of Fortune'

The show also features songs from two bands who are passionately striving to keep the Southern Rock flame burning, The Highway Ryders and The Righteous Hillbillies.
