Reno

 

Tony Sales and his brother Hunt are probably the best rhythm section in music today. In addition to playing with Todd Rundgen's Utopia and creating the sound of Iggy Pop's best selling record, Lust For Life, they were founding members of Tin Machine. Reno gives Tony a chance to showcase his great singing and guitar playing in addition to his unique bass playing style.

True Love Is Not Nice

 

Log House was born in summer 2007, a musical reawakening for the two founding friends.
At the crossroads of country, folk and pop music, this quiet lo-fi Alsatian band's woody songs are gentle as a summer breeze.

You Can Have A Cell Phone, That's OK,
But Not Me

 

This is Gary Johnson's first venture in a recording studio. However, he does have the street cred to be on this tribute album, as he has seen Jonathan perform over 150 times and owns "The World's Largest Jonathan Richman Collection", a moniker he proudly self-applies. Also, Jonathan has performed in his Los Angeles store, Rockaway Records, where he sells copious amounts of rare vinyl, CDs, DVDs and memorabilia.
