Bloodlines intersect at Bonamassa’s place
September 13, 2007
ASPEN Perhaps it’s because his father owned a guitar shop, or maybe because he entered the music business at such a young age. For whatever reason, Joe Bonamassa is comfortable with second-generation musicians. Bonamassa’s first band, Bloodlines, featured Berry Oakley Jr., Erin Davis and Waylon Krieger, the offspring, respectively, of Allman Brothers bassist Berry Oakley, Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger, and trumpeter Miles Davis. On his 2006 album “You & Me,” Bonamassa’s drummer was Jason Bonham, son of Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham.
Little surprise, then, that the first artist signed to Bonamassa’s J&R Adventures label has a name that will be familiar to pop-music fans. Actually, two names. Crosby Loggins is the eldest son of singer-songwriter Kenny Loggins. And even if he wasn’t named for David Crosby, the name will surely remind listeners of the famed rocker.Loggins opens for his “boss” Sunday at Belly Up Aspen. Loggins’ debut CD – “We All Go Home,” recorded with his band, the Light – is due for release next week.
Should the names not ring bells, the sound might. Loggins’ music is a gentle, easy-on-the-ears take on rock, not unlike his dad’s.Partly responsible for the sound on “We All Go Home” is co-producer, backing singer and multi-instrumentalist Jesse Siebenberg – the son of Supertramp drummer Bob Siebenberg.Stewart Oksenhorn’s e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
