Lollapalooza: Day two begins with J Roddy Walston
I made it down to the festival for day two right in the middle of J Roddy Walston and The Business' "Brave Man's Death," my favorite song by the band.
No worries as the rest of the set was pretty entertaining. Walston's an inferno of howling vocals, hair and pounding piano.
It's loud, out-of-control Southern rock that veers into the territory of the Beatles when they got frenzied and Paul McCartney started yelling.
I caught the last half of the set including "Use Your Language" (video above), "Don't Get Old" and "Uh Oh Rock & Roll."
I've also never seen anyone headbang while playing piano. Thank you Mr. Walston for allowing me to check that off the bucket list.
