The countdown to Farm Aid continues! Last week I found a classic video of Neil Young performing "Heart of Gold." Today--I present a Bodeans flashback!
I think it's really cool that the Bodeans are playing Farm Aid...but it's not the first time they've gotten to play a really big stage with some heavy hitters. When the Bodeans broke back in the late 1980's, they got to open for U2. Yeah, that's pretty cool.
The Bodeans got a lot of great publicity back then from publications like Rolling Stone, and even Time Magazine..and I have to admit I took a lot of personal pride in that (after all they were from the same state!), even though I really had nothing to do with their success whatsoever.
I was searching youtube for a cool retro video of Sammy and Kurt..and found something even better. A feature on the band from the Today Show.
Put on your seat belt folks, we're getting into the Way Back Machine.
