Weekly Workout Playlist – 12-8-14

It’s been a rough week for us old rock and roll fans out there. Maybe you had never heard the names Bobby Keys or Ian McLagan before, but you’d certainly heard them play… a lot. And while it might seem depressing to dwell on the talent that’s passed on, the McLagan and Keys’ deaths got me thinking about all the folks who are gone and how amazing their contributions to my life as a musician and music lover have been. It’s all about gratitude, folks. And I’m grateful to all the people represented on this week’s playlist.

Just so you don’t have to go looking them all up, here they are in order of appearance:

Ian Dury
