The second episode of Rolling Stone's The Story featured a living legend of Cape Town - Doctor John. Known for his charismatic fronting of bands like Blues Broers and Boulevard Blues bands, the Doc is widely regarded as the grand uncle of the Western Cape blues scene.
The hour-long, in-depth and very personal interview was filmed for Rolling Stone SA, and included an intimate short musical performance, where the Doc was accompanied by Boulevard Blues mates Richard Pryor and Rob Stemmet. "Big Boss Man" was originally recorded by Jimmy Reed in the 60s.
Rolling Stone met up with Eagles of Death Metal frontman, Jesse Hughes, at the 'One Night in Cape Town' concert to chat about doing press interviews, the upcoming EODM album and about his Boots Electric album.
Rolling Stone SA has announced the two senior acts that will anchor the Rolling Stone Weekend in support of the 10 young voices that will be showcased. Rolling Stone Weekend runs September 14-15, 2012 at The Shack and Mercury Live complex.
The two 'support bands' are SAMA and TEMPO-nominated Afrikaans rock band Willim Welsyn en die Sunrise Toffees, and the acclaimed rap artist Youngsta – nominated by The Mail and Guardian as one of the 200 young South Africans to take to lunch. In the video, Rollings Stone's Miles Keylock and Anton Marshall talk about the weekend and ticket availability.
