Culture Notes: California music part 3 (Northern)

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Wednesday, October 31, 2007 2:11 AM (Eastern)

The most fun section, even though we have fewer bands than SoCal. :)

As far as I know, Chris Isaak is the most famous person from Stockton. This video was regarded as pretty hot when it came out although if you look at it, nothing is actually shown, only suggested. Featuring Danish super model Helena Christensen.

Wicked Game

Based on her hit records, I can't claim to be a great fan of Janis Joplin, because there her voice sounds too rough. Yet the non-hit songs made toward the end of her short life can be extraordinary. Makes you wonder what she would have done had she lived longer. (Joplin was from Texas of course, but is heavily associated with San Francisco.)


Green Day have been around forever--twenty years--but, like Jon Stewart, what made them suddenly come to the fore was our country's swerve to the right.

Green Day - Holiday (Live Video)

Carlos Santana, who needs no introduction.

Santana - Maria Maria [TheWraith]

And finally, Huey Lewis and the News. One of my favorite Bay Area tunes of all time.

Huey Lewis and The News - I Want A New Drug

Ever hear Joplin sing "Son of a Preacher Man"? No grittiness there. She wasn't very careful about her voice, but she was a fantastic guitarist.

I didn't know she did "Son of a Preacher Man"...what I've heard was the Dusty Springfield version. As I say I'm not much of a fan. I was surprised at what turned up on Youtube though, it was much better than Joplin's more commercial releases.

Hehe, Huey Lewis & The News.. I once went to a party with the bass player and the drummer. Nice people. The bass player reminded me a little of Seinfeld's Kramer though :-D

Great band, a lot of good songs - "If this is it", "Do you believe in love"...
