In the midst of lots of possible posts this morning and little time - this was too cool not to put up here. One of my long-time favorite artists (thanks Lee), Alejandro Escovedeo, got a resounding endorsement from the Boss and the full E-Street band last night in Houston. Bruce invited Alejandro to the stage and the full band played the single "Always a Friend" from Alejandro's amazing new album, Real Animal, hitting stores on June 24th from Back Porch/Manhattan Records. The new record is a true return to form for Alejandro as he relies heavily on the guitar rock of his early days, while blending in the beautiful string laced ballads only a musician of his maturity can produce. Enough talk - check it out. Alejandro doing his best Win Butler... or something like that.
