The rules of the road are as such: Try and create a 5-song mix based on this week’s theme. Create your own post and link it up, or put your mix in the comments. If you’re going to link-up, there must be a song in your post. Mostly, just have fun; there’s no pressure here.
When I first heard Eddie's work, he was playing with his band, Mere Mortals, from Pittston, PA. They were a pretty big deal here in NEPA back in the heyday of my BC days. Not only did they play shows at the bar I worked at right after I graduated high school (amongst other local venues), but they played all over the country. They recorded three CDs (two of which I owned, in their cassette tape formats . . . the second, Grin, I acquired at that bar I worked at, when they had a release party there for Grin in 1996). They headlined at the Whiskey A-Go-Go in LA, they opened for Eddie Money, and they opened for Julian Lennon at Crocodile Rock in Allentown, PA.
Eddie was the lead singer/songwriter/guitarist for Mere Mortals for 11 years, and he's still making music. The songs I chose for my Best of list are a few of my favorite songs that he recorded with Mere Mortals, but he's got more for your listening pleasure on ReverbNation. Go check him out. You won't be disappointed!
"We're Mere Mortals . . . and so are you."
Thanks for listening!
