Friday Inspiration: We Are Not Alone

We are not alone

God is always there

Regardless if the shelves are full

Or if they are bare

Rock Ballad of The Week – Blues Edition: Gary Clark Jr. “Our Love”

Oh yeah

It’s been one of those days
Where things don’t go my way
Ooh, and it seems like always
The thing to blame is my ways

You’re the one I’m thinkin’ of
The one I’m dreamin’ of

You are my lady
I am your man
Some call it crazy
But they don’t understand

When I’m gone
Baby, I’m always gone too long
That don’t get your mind to wonderin’
If I still care, ’cause, baby, I still care

You’re the one I’m thinkin’ of
The one I’m dreamin’ of is you, uh

You are my lady
I am your man
Some call it crazy, but
They don’t understand

Our love (ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, our)
Come on, babe (ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, our love)
Come on, babe (ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, our love)
(Ooh, ooh)
Yeah, yeah (ooh, our love)

You are my lady
I am your man
Some call it crazy, baby
But they don’t understand

This is our love
Yeah, yeah
This is our love
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Come on, girl
Let me be your man
Keep it together, babe
They don’t have to understand
Our love

Gary Lee Clark Jr. (born February 15, 1984) is an American musician based in Austin, Texas. Clark has shared the stage with various legends of rock and roll, and has stated that he is “influenced by blues, jazz, soul [and] country, as well as hip hop”. Clark’s musical trademarks are his distorted guitar sound and smooth vocal style.

Gary Clark Jr. began playing guitar at the age of twelve. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Clark played small gigs throughout his teens, until he met promoter Clifford Antone, proprietor of the Austin music club Antone’s. Antone’s was the launch pad from which Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan redefined blues at the time. Soon after meeting Clifford, Clark began to play with an array of musical icons, including Jimmie Vaughan. Vaughan and others in the Austin music community helped Clark along his musical path, facilitating his ascent in the Texas rock and roll scene. Clark’s music demonstrates how the blues have shaped virtually every medium of music over the past century, from hip-hop to country.

Rock Ballad of The Week: LA Guns “I Found You”

Somebody love me
Somebody care
Somebody hold me
When I am scared

Somebody reach out and hold my hand
Somebody somewhere must understand
I found you
You wanted me too

Somebody touch me
Somebody give
Give me a reason
I want to live

Oh, I don’t ask for much
All I want darling is a little trust
I found you
You wanted me too

I found you
You wanted me too
Somebody trust me, Somebody care
I ain’t got much, girl

But I’m willing to share
Oh it’s hard, this world can be so cold
We all need a little love
It’s what makes us whole

I found you
You wanted me too

LEWIS, MARK/BURNS, MIKE

L.A. Guns are an American hard rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1983. As of 2014, the lineup consists of Phil Lewis (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Steve Riley (drums, percussion, backing vocals), Kenny Kweens (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Michael Grant (lead guitar, backing vocals). The first incarnation of the group was formed by Tracii Guns in 1983 and merged with fellow Los Angeles group Hollywood Rose to form Guns N’ Roses in 1984. In 1985, the group was reformed by Guns and singer Paul Black adding Mick Cripps and Nickey Alexander. Black would soon be replaced by former Girl singer Phil Lewis while former Faster Pussycat bassist Kelly Nickels was added to the group. Later, Alexander would be replaced by former W.A.S.P. drummer Steve Riley with this being known as the “classic lineup” of L.A. Guns. They achieved moderate chart success in the late 1980s and early 1990s. However, the group went through numerous lineup changes (with Riley being the most consistent member) and failed to regain mainstream attention.

The “classic lineup” of the group would reunite in 1999 and began recording new material. However, the group continued to change lineups and Guns eventually left to form the hard rock supergroup Brides of Destruction with Nikki Sixx of Mötley CrĂĽe in 2002. L.A. Guns continued without Guns, bringing in guitarist Stacey Blades, however, following his decision to put Brides of Destruction on hiatus in 2006, Guns formed The Tracii Guns Band. The group’s lineup consisted of former L.A. Guns members Black, Alexander as well as Jeremy Guns (though the lineup would eventually change), with the group eventually changing their name to L.A. Guns. Both groups continued to record and tour under the L.A. Guns moniker until 2012, when the Tracii Guns led version of the group disbanded.

To date, L.A. Guns has released ten studio albums – L.A. Guns (1988); Cocked & Loaded (1989); Hollywood Vampires (1991); Vicious Circle (1995); American Hardcore (1996); Shrinking Violet (1999); Man in the Moon (2001); Waking the Dead (2002); Tales from the Strip (2005); and Hollywood Forever (2012), two extended plays – Cuts (1992); Wasted (1998) as well as a number of live and compilation albums.
