Video – Will Hoge (live performance)

One of the best roots rockers of his generation (there’s a statement that is unfair, eh?), Will Hoge has a new album (“The Wreckage”) out on September 29th.  Here’s a video from the CBS Early Show that is a nice little introductory piece on him – a performance and short interview.  He had a terribly severe accident on his way home from the recording studio last August, and it has taken him almost a year to recover. 

I saw him in Indianapolis last summer  – a free (no shit!) outdoor show at the terrific Rathskeller Biergarten.  Dan Baird, of  Georgia Satellites fame, played guitar for him.  Killer performance. It was, without hestitation, the best show I saw all summer.  Springsteen comparisons are apt, but he’s more like a younger Tom Petty –  insightful, soulful, heartfelt rock and fuckin’ roll.

He’s back in our town Indy on November 21 at Radio Radio.
