Dead Rock Stars Other Angels
Yaakov Thompson is a solo artist. His music includes rock, folk, jazz, and electronica- through the digital miracle of multi-tracking his songs create a special combination of classic rock and roll sounds and thoughtful lyrics. His first release, Dead Rock Stars, Other Angels, is an excercise in remembering and reflecting. As the song asks 'Why does great talent consume the vessals made to contain it?' This CD reaffirms what too many people have forgotten today- songs are an avenue to telling a story. Dead Rock Stars, Other Angels tells the story of great talent that left the world too soon-- it also celebrates the reasons why the music they left is still the best.
