We haven’t turned our back on you! Hey all you cool people, we’re entering a brief winter hibernation here and putting the best parts of our heads together and hopefully keeping yours bobbing to tasty original tunes. If you’ve liked what we’ve been up to so far you’re really gonna like what we’ve got in store! #earthrider #buffalo #blues #soul #rock #funk #fusion
Well folks, it’s time we announce that our current bass player David DelValle has left the band to focus on other aspects of life and we’d like thank him for not only finishing out our shows but also for always being a stand up guy. Wish him luck! We will also be taking a short break from playing out while we recruit someone and work on new stuff! Stick around for fresh digs and cheers to the old ones!
Today, remembering perhaps rocks greatest drummer. John Bonham was not only a drummer, but he embodied the drums. No man, nor woman beat the living hell out of their kit harder than this guy. While all at the same time, he was efficient with brushes and knew when to lay back and supply a groove for the band to shine. When the levee breaks, what is and what should never be, whole lotta love, Achilles last stand, and of course Moby Dick. R.I.P John Henry Bonham, you are and will forever be, an inspiration to drummers all around the world. https://youtu.be/r9-42mu1D9Y
Rest In Peace Jimi... If only you knew how many of our hearts you’ve touched and inspired to play harder and better than we ever thought we could. You taught us that blues is easy to play but hard to feel. You taught us that there are no limits. You taught us to stand up next to a mountain and chop it the fuck down because that’s what we guitarists do. Watching Jimi perform is like watching lightning or a fire. You just stare until it’s over, never doing the same thing twice. Your power will never fade and lives on in every note I play. Without Jimi there is no Earth Rider. As small and insignificant as that may be it’s everything to me. You were and still are my all time hero. R.I.P. James Marshall Hendrix. Hopefully Seattle parties extra hard for you tonight Jimi. 🌏🎸
