Rompin' Ronnie Hawkins

Recommended Posts

A guy from the US south found his way to Toronto and stayed. The rest is history.

Several of Hawkins' Canadian bands and band members have had successful careers on their own, including And Many Others (as Crowbar), The Band, Robbie Lane and the Disciples, and (Jim) Atkinson, (Terry) Danko, and (Duane) Ford; the guitarists Terry Bush, Jack DeKeyzer, Mike 'Pepe' Francis, John Till, Pat Travers, and Dom Troiano; the pianists Richard Bell, Scott Cushnie, David Foster, Larry Gowan, and Stan Szelest; and the singers King Biscuit Boy, Beverly D'Angelo, David Clayton-Thomas, B.J. Cook, Jackie Gabriel, Tobi Lark, Bob McBride, and Jay Smith. Hawkins' son Robin (b Toronto 24 Dec 1964) was frequently his guitarist beginning in the 1980s, and his daughter Leah (b 30 July 1969) was his singer. Hawkins had a reputation for requiring his backup musicians to practise frequently and strenuously; this work ethic is thought to have been the catalyst behind the accomplished playing of many of his protégés.

For a look at and a listen to Ronnie Hawkins, rent the tremendous Martin Scorsese documentary, The Last Waltz, which chronicles the last concert of The Band in 1976. They invite Hawkins onstage to perform with them one last time and it's a barn-burner.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
