Diesel – The Lobbyist

Stylish blend of Blues-Rock and white Soul for the ’90s Eager to cash in on the huge success of his first solo album (or second if you count 1989’s Johnny Diesel & The Injectors), 1992’s Hepfidelity, Diesel (real name Mark Lizotte) was under pressure to release a follow up.

Even Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, two of England’s finest blues guitarists, had updated their style and sound… Read More Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble – Live Alive
