Rock & Roll Art: Greg McIlv...
Rock & Roll Art: Greg McIlvaine, who some of you might know better as Monsignor Rallying Point, describes heading toward the finish line of his big show Saturday:
Though I still have a lot of work to do somehow, the paintings are looking finished and it's very exciting. Like any good project, I find myself looking at them all and saying, "How did I do that?" The answer: with a little help from Jimmie Rodgers, Django Reinhardt, Ozzy Osbourne, Bob Dylan, Don Gibson, ZZ Top, Tom Waits, The Blasters, Led Zepplin, Husker Du, Elvis, Ray Charles, Deep Purple, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, The Charming Snakes, Tennessee Ernie Ford, more Elvis, etc. Overall, Dylan's new record "Love and Theft" gets the most play. I find it's power, mastery, and it's fearless approach to expression to be particularly inspiring. Plus it makes me dance around.
Don't forget, SoCal types -- Saturday night, 6 o'clock
