CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Handle On The Blues - Nick Woodland

London-born Nick Woodlandis one of the veterans coming out of the British blues-rock scene. Inspired by those like Alexis Korner, Eric Clapton, John Mayall and Peter Green, Woodland started out on guitar at age 15 and was almost to become a member of the Rolling Stones in the sixties. Since those days, he stuck to the message of rhythm’n’blues gaining some fame among insiders as one of the hottest live-acts around. “If you dig Dave Edmunds, Ry Cooder or Stevie Ray Vaughan, you will get your money’s worth from Nick Woodland,” Germany’s leading musicians’ magazine read. Süddeutsche Zeitung, one of Germany’s biggest dailies, wrote: “Nick Woodland is among the best live performers of the white blues.” Based in Munich (Germany), Nick Woodland has played his guitar for a whole lot of different bands in rock (Amon Düül II, The Clash), pop (Donna Summer, Boney M) and jazz (Herbie Mann) and recorded five albums with Germany’s top act Marius Müller-Westernhagen. With his own band he has been touring Europe extensively for many years, working the field between blues, rock’n’roll and country music. The band’s live potential is well documented on their new CD “Live Fireworks” that gives further proof of Nick Woodland’s being a “helluva guitar player.”
