Ward White: "Mezcal Moth" video

Watch the new Ward White video for Mezcal Moth, a track from his new album, Ice Cream Chords: "a worthy successor to an album that put him on the map after years of hard work.

Words about music (669): Frank Zappa

Let’s be realistic about this, the guitar can be the single most blasphemous device on the face of the earth. That’s why I like it . . . The disgusting stink of a too-loud electric guitar: now that’s my idea of a good time.
