More Great Blogs are Buzzing about the Debut album.

MidLife Motorcycle Madness says You cannot pigeonhole their music into one safe genre or make a comparison to one other single popular band. The closest I could come up with to maybe compare them to would be the Eagles.Some of the songs have a definite Classic Rock style & sound and others have a more Modern Country or Americana type sound. You can hear all kinds of instruments in the MeanStreet Riders music from electric guitars to banjo.The vocals are solid with lots of harmony.

Easy Rider Ramblings Blog said they hear influences that are similar to the Eagles, ZZ Top, Jackson Browne, Zack Brown Band, Tim McGraw, Rodney Adkins, Allman Brothers Band, Skynard (yes, Lynyrd Skynyrd) and even a bit of Chris Isaak. Every song written with emotion with a Been there, done that feel throughout. It’s incredible to be able to relive some of my rides and experiences thru words and music. It makes me want to jump up, dance and ride.

Meghan took the Riders for a tour of Strokers where many of the shows are filmed and MSR got a chance to see some of Rick’s customized bikes in progress and cool paint designs from his 60s themed tie …dye to his Beatles bike and the MillerLite chopper.

C’mon Ma give your son a thumbs up he’s earned it.

The Real Story Behind our song “Rollin’ On”

Posted in Great Roads, Music, Our Riding Culture, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 14, 2010 by The MeanStreet Riders

In memory of Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda’s ride long ago while filming“Easy Rider” the film that introduced the world to the riding culture we introduce the ballad “Rolling On”.
The song which is also available from our new ITunes Store owes it’s haunting string sound to legendary performer Sam Bush and captures the… souls of the American Indians that existed long ago along the Route 66 route and in the Taos, NM area where Dennis once lived. Many of the lost Americana towns they went through while filming the movie are now gone but not forgotten. The song also captures the realization of how complicated life has become in this confusing world and how riding can clear the mind and cleanse the soul even today.

Route 66

Dennis, Peter and Jack having fun in Easy Rider
