The Rides set to ride again
Kenny Wayne Shepherd says the response to the album he made with Stephen Stills and Barry Goldberg has been so positive that they’re gearing up to make another one.
The Rides’ record Can’t Get Enough was initially planned as nothing more than an experiment – but the guitarist and vocalist is pleased to report it’s been a great success.
He tells the Sun Times: “Our album came out at the end of August, and that was a really fun experience. We’ve had a lot of great shows.
"It was something that was meant to be fun – just a side-project, something to inspire us in different ways than we normally are."
Meanwhile, he’s back at work with the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band, touring the US and gearing up for their own next album.
"It’s been a really interesting experience being a member of two bands," he says. "We’ve been really busy – it’s great to be busy when you love what you’re doing."
