MOJO MARKS THE 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the tragic death of the most precocious singing and songwriting talent of the century so far. Musicians and collaborators assemble to explore the music of Amy Winehouse, while MOJO writers (and Bill, and Marianne) remember the Rolling Stones’ magpie masterpiece, Sticky Fingers. Also in the issue: Billy Gibbons on supercharging the blues; the dawn of solo Nico; Family’s Roger Chapman holds his own. Plus: Jackson Browne, The Stranglers, Yola, Crowded House, Durand Jones, Chrissie Hynde, Violent Femmes, Squid, Laura Nyro, Wendy Sprout, Questlove’s funky movie and much more!
THIS MONTH’S COVERMOUNT CD tips the wink to Sticky Fingers, and celebrates the R&B and roots nuggets spawned by little old Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Stars: Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Gregg Allman, Bettye Lavette, Drive-By Truckers, Jason Isbell and more!
