Dave Davies
Dave Davies founded the Kinks in the early 1960s and forever changed music after he sliced up the speaker cone of a little green amp and created a revolutionary, distorted guitar tone and frenetic solo on the song "You Really Got Me." Musicologist Joe Harrington described the Kinks' influence: "'You ReallyGot Me', 'All Day and All of the Night' were predecessors of the whole three-chord genre ... the Kinks did a lot to help turn rock 'n' roll into rock." Writer Bill Crowley wrote "As lead guitarist and founder of The Kinks, Dave Davies is one of the most unpredictable and original forces in rock, without whom guitar-rock styles including heavy metal and punk would have been inconceivable. A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Dave's massive guitar sounds have inspired bands from Van Halen to Green Day." Dave's new album I Will Be Me is a return to his groundbreaking guitar sound and innovative songwriting.

BlackHawk & The Outlaws
In 1993, Henry Paul, Dave Robbins, and Van Stephenson formed BlackHawk and exploded onto the country music landscape in 1993 with their self-titled album and top 10 hit single "Goodbye Says It All." Three more hit singles followed, "Every Once In A While," "I Sure Can Smell The Rain" and "That's Just About Right", propelling the album to platinum status. They maintained that pace in the years that followed, scoring a dozen top ten hits, including two number ones, while selling more than seven million records. Tragedy struck in 1999 when Van was diagnosed with melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. After a long and courageous fight, Van lost his battle in 2001. Henry and Dave honored his dying wish that BlackHawk continue to make great music. They established the Van Stephenson Memorial Cancer Research Fund in his memory, donating the proceeds of their efforts to the Vanderbilt Cancer Research Center.Over the course of their amazing career, BlackHawk's songs have touched people young and old. Their unique musical character has been a catalyst in bringing non-country music fans to the genre. Twenty-one years after their arrival, BlackHawk's legend grows.Henry Paul and Dave Robbins just released their first new album in 12 years, Brothers of The Southland.
