Note: if you want to know what this is all about check out my intro post…
Kevn Kinney is the singer and and guitarist, best known for fronting the Alt Southern Rock band Drivin N Cryin. He's also done solo work that falls into the folk, alt country, blues and rock genres. I have been a fan since hearing Drivin N Cryin back in the early 90s. Kinney has the chops for all kinds of sounds and music from whispered folk to booming heavy metal. If I had a chance to work on a covers album with him these are the songs I would pitch.
The Jet Black Berries - Murder
The Divine Horsemen - Devils River
King's X - Far Far Away
Stan Ridgway - Driver She Said
Mark Pickerel and His Praying Hands - Cody's Dream
I couldn't find a video for this song... but here's a taste of Pickerel's muisc
Mother Love Bone - Man of Golden Words
Temple of the Dog - Pushing Forward Back
Rank N File - Rank n File
Blood on the Saddle - Colt .45
Forbidden Dimension - House of 1000 Dolls
hey no video of course... someone needs to get on that..
Screaming Trees- Winter Song
The Chickenhawks - Fuck Minneapolis
no video for this one
The Bottle Rockets - $1000 Car
James McMurty - Lights of Cheyenne
King's X - Mission
Steve Earl - Copperhead Road
so there it is the list
Disclaimer: this is all a album I day dream about making, there is no plans or talks of any of this happening...
