ROOTS with ROBB:  Beck

ROOTS with ROBB: Beck

If Bob Dylan and the Beastie Boys procreated, Beck would be their offspring.  He’s a modern-day chameleon, a David Bowie or Prince for Gen X and millennials.  He does what he wants and if you’re a fan of his, you’ll come along for the ride no matter what.  Ready for the journey?

Our Roots song(s) of the Day:

Beck is currently on a co-headlining tour with Cage the Elephant and Spoon.  They’ll be in Chicago on July 31st.  It’d be a cool show to see, IF you can find tickets, and they aren’t super expensive.  I looked when they first went on sale and they were up there.
