Warren Floyd on MySpace

I wanted to be a doctor. My mom made me do this.

Warren's original songs grace us with a much needed reminder of the humanity and grandness of every day life and have recently been featured on John McEuen's Acoustic Traveller show, XM Satellite Radio and Another Music Scene With Gene, www.milehiradio.com. He also performs rock and roll, folk-rock and country covers from the '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s. His stories, from watching Frankenstein on the late movie with Jimmy Buffett, coloring with Dolly Parton and hanging out with Richie Havens, to exchanging letters with Doors' singer / lyricist Jim Morrison and touring with The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, are as entertaining as the songs they inspired and prompted singer / songwriter Mare Lennon to quip, "Warren is the Forrest Gump of Folk."

Warren Floyd on MySpace

John McEuen, CMA and Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist for The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band says:

"Warren Floyd is an excellent entertainer. His fan base has been built on his engaging personable stage approach that brings people in to listen to a voice I wish I had, and he does this with an eclectic mix of known songs . . . and then lays on them some of his own, which usually end up going over better than all. He is dependable, a nice guy, easy to work with, and hey! shows up on time! He picks great and works a crowd well . . . and all have a good time as he sneaks in his own songs that end up getting requested by return listeners.

"Warren has worked for me personally and with The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band both on an artistic and production level. In doing so he has always demonstrated that he is a professional in every manner, whether being asked at the last minute to open a show in front of a few thousand people, singing harmony on or off stage, being a lighting director or guitar roadie, or any of the many things we have called him to do. Warren always performed professionally, did it right, etc. We are glad to have had his services and feel that anyone else who does so will feel the same."

"Just wanted to thank you again
for a wonderful time last night.
We all really enjoyed your music. You gave me much more than
I bargained for. Have I said yet
how great you were?"

Private Concert Hostess

"I wish I wrote songs as nice as yours!
Keep it up.

John McEuen

"Thank you for Daddy, Are We There Yet? This album has touched me in so many different ways.
How you have taken real life experiences and put them into words is amazing to me.
I feel like I have lived many of the songs."

Alice Coopper schools us: Listen to the Beatles, Burt Bacharach

School's out for summer, but that hasn't stopped Alice Cooper from holding class.

In a recent interview, the 65-year old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer talked about what separates the rock songwriters of his generation from the hard rockers of today.

"People say, 'What's the difference between bands now and in the '60's and '70's?' The reason our songs hold up is because they're more melodic. They're songs. There's a verse, a B section, a bridge, a chorus. We were closer to the Beatles, so was Ozzy, so was Aerosmith. Our era bands were so much closer to the Beatles, even though we took it in a whole different direction.

"Take any bands out there now and say, 'OK, you got a pretty decent riff, and you've got a pretty decent drummer, and you're yelling at me, you're angry, I get it. But there's no song here. It's just you yelling at me.

"I say to that band, 'Why don't you for one week just listen to the Beatles, Burt Bacharach, Laura Nyro, Paul Simon and The Beach Boys, and maybe the Four Season, and listen to how a three-minute song is constructed. And then write me a song about how much you hate your father. But make it a song.' It's very hard for them to do it.

"I remember sitting with guys in The Doors and guys in a band called Clearlight and guys in Pink Floyd, listening to Burt Bacharach's greatest hits. And sitting there going, 'Wow, listen to that, listen to that chord structure, listen to how that melody works with that.' Here's a bunch of hard rock maniacs listening to one of the masters and understanding why it works. I don't think young bands will do that now."
