Six O’Clock Triple Shot – 6/12/14 KWS Celebrates a Birthday

Scott Gries – Hulton Archive

(The Six O’Clock Triple Shot is a daily feature of three songs that share a common theme, heard weeknights on 94.9 WMMQ)

Tonight, we celebrate the birthday of Kenny Wayne Shepherd, who turns 37. It’s not often when one looks up to somebody younger as an inspiration, but I surely do when it comes to this ax-wielder. Most of the musicians Shepherd’s age aren’t self-taught phenoms, and they surely have no interest in the blues/country/rock fusion sound. Shepherd caught the attention of record executive Irving Azoff at the ripe age of 13. Since 1995, Shepherd and his band have been churning out hit after hit, with the REAL sound of American Rock-N-Roll. No cookie-cutters!! Currently, Shepherd is working on a new LP and has recruited the likes of Joe Walsh, Warren Haynes, and Ringo Starr to lend flavor.

I’m diving into three from Kenny Wayne Shepherd for tonight’s Six O’Clock Triple Shot. His first single, “Born With A Broken Heart” from 1995’s Ledbetter Heights; “Slow Ride”, the first single from the follow-up Trouble Is… (same LP as “Blue On Black”, which we’ll save for Duran), and back to Ledbetter Heights for the ass-kickin’ “Deja Voodoo”.
