One of my heroes
i’ve seen him 4 times!
Love the guy!
I took a female acquaintance to see Nick play live and solo a few years ago. She is a music fan, but wasn't necessarily aware of the greatness of Nick Lowe. She said it might have been the greatest solo acoustic performance she'd ever seen. Absolute mastery, pacing, humor, emotion, you know, a Nick Lowe performance.
The only thing I remember about the Cruel To Be Kind video is that his then-wife Carlene Carter played the bride in it. (Huge crush at the time)
He seems to have aged well
Plus, he was 1/4 of Little Village, the greatest band no one heard at the time: Ry Cooder, John Hiatt, and Jim Keltner. Can't share vids from my phone but they're out there.
Big Nick Lowe fan here and have seen him play about a half dozen times. I have to say that as he has gotten older he seems like he would be more comfortable picking up the bar tab at the 19th hole. What up with the retirement home fashion?
I like Nick! And Rockpile too! Good pop rock-n-roll music.
Seen him backed by los straight jackets twice in the past two years at the el Ray. Spectacular!
I remember when Labour of Lust was released-all the guitar players I knew were trying to cop Van Halen licks and those just were not to be found in my fingers. So that album was like someone throwing me a life preserver ring.
And those guys backed up Hiatt on his Bring the Family album, which is one of the best under-appreciated records of all time.
Yup, just saw them a couple weeks ago in Philadelphia. Makes a great case for the timelessness of traditional rock and roll. Anyone could have walked in there not knowing a single one of his songs, and would have still had a great time.
Geezer rock. You know. Better that than trying to still look 25, which some of them do.
How has he aged so much yet I've stayed exactly the same? Cruel really.
