Los Lobos covers "Cinnamon Girl" at Disneyland

los lobos ride
Los Lobos, out touring their newest album "The Ride", covered "Cinnamon Girl" at Disneyland critic Greg Kot reports in the Chicago Tribune.

"Onstage at Disneyland, the quintet is abetted by drummer Cougar Estrada and percussionist Victor Bisetti, and the set is short and straightforward, shorn of the band's most adventurous fare and heavy on party rockers. But even in the midst of Valens' 'Come On, Let's Go,' Hidalgo throws in a cunning, quizzical guitar solo that owes more to John Coltrane than it does to garage rock. They wind up with a roaring encore of Neil Young's 'Cinnamon Girl,' and Perez bends the strings on his guitar until the melody succumbs to the squall.

Afterward, he chuckles. 'I'm a fan of dissonance, from Ornette Coleman to punk rock,' he says. 'I like things that don't travel very linear lines through musical space.' The same could be said of his band, a group of friends who have traveled the crooked path to better musicmaking."

Now can you imagine the kids at Disney land hearing that?!

And I could have been there to see it, but noooo! I guess I'll have to check in at LL's official site more often to see when they're touring.

Anyway, thanks for posting this.

Interesting theme for a blog, BTW.
