A free Stevie Salas download

Guitarist Stevie Salas has recorded with George Clinton, Bootsy Collins and Bill Laswell. He has toured with Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger. And I’ve read that Mr. Salas is a big-deal solo artist in Japan. He is no doubt the funkiest member of the Mescalero Apache Nation.

Last year he released a double-CD compilation, “The Sun and the Earth – The Essential Stevie Salas Vol. 1.” If you’re new to Stevie, this is the place to start. And why not start with a FREE MP3?

To hear his cover version of Robbie Robertson’s “Shake This Town,” click here. To download the track, click the song title below.

Dave, he, Bootsy, and Buddy Miles got together as Hardware in the mid-90s. It was a funky blues rock thang.

He and Jef Lee Johnson are all over Ronald Shannon Jackson's Red Warrior. Red Warrior has three guitars and two basses. They rip some shit up on that joint.

I saw him livein Stuttgart, Germany to a crowd of about 50 peopl. What a down-to-earth rock star. He was a really cool guy - gave me an autograph and a photo op. Plus memories to last a life-time. Make sure to check out his new CD Be What it Is - it's a rockin' album!
