Son of Dave was born in the winter of the summer of love and used to be in the Crash Test Dummies. So much has happened since then. “I’ve had hard knocks, sure,” he says. “That’s where the desire for revenge comes from. But people don’t want to hear what kind. To hell with the phony hobo blues. Fuck the divorcée mid-life crisis blues. Here’s my new record. It’s more joyful than my previous ones, has great musician buddies on it and covers a lot of ground. I wrote it on piano, guitar, bass and drums, like the old days of R’n’B, though I still play too much harmonica.
