About a week and a half ago, I had an opportunity to visit with the man formerly known as Don Gallucci.
Don’s kinda like the lost and forgotten member of the original Kingsmen that recorded LOUIE LOUIE back in 1963. His keyboard playing is the very first sound you […]
I recently watched “Danny Says,” a documentary about a music industry insider by the name of Danny Fields.

I knew that Danny not only helped get Peel signed to […]

Here’s another one for the LOUIE archives – James Williamson of The Stooges did a solo show at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles last month. As fate would have it, the last song of the show was THE SONG!
He is joined by Jello Biafra, Alison Mosshart, Carolyn Wonderland and other assorted all-stars
Today, the mighty LOUIE LOUIE spotlight is pointed at Sophie Villy, a Georgian (not Russian) singer that delivered a soulful rendition of THE SONG, covering the Iggy Pop– American Caesar version, while adding a few extra phrases from the song “At Last.” This performance took place sometime this month on The Great Fisun Show […]
Another great rocker has left us. Drummer Scott Asheton, a founding member of The Stooges, passed away on March 15th.
Iggy Pop shared the news on his Facebook page:
My dear friend Scott Asheton passed away last night.
Scott was a great artist, I have never heard anyone play the drums with more […]

“Green Air” is not only a state of being, but also a name of a band that performs this week’s LOUIE LOUIE.
In this video clip, Green […]
