What's in my Walkman


Once in a blue moon, there comes a new CD release that you know you won't be wasting your money on even if you bought it ... err, what's the aural equivalent of sight unseen? Sound unheard?

Like the Travelling Wilburys, Chickenfoot's pedigree is enough to make you sit up and take notice. Quite literally, they are Satriani meets Van Halen meets Red Hot Chilli Peppers. What is there to go wrong? In a nutshell, they sound like Satriani with singing. Finally, a Satriani album you can sing to.

Who? Ah, Adi -- it's like you're speaking Chinese to me . . . I have heard of the Chili Peppers but have no idea of any particular song from then. The Traveling Wilburys? Something Australian? When all this music comes under discussion is when I realize how horribly OLD I really am. Thanks for the reminder . . . M.

Ah, The Travelling Wiburys were George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan. Dylan and an exBeatle -- that's gotta be for old people, right? :)
They recorded a couple of CDs in the late 80s and then Orbison died on them. :(
