Shawn Phillips

My Life in Rock And Roll

Shawn Phillips wrote a song inspired by The Devil's Highway called, well, "The Devil's Highway."

Here it is in concert:

Funny story about my boyhood, too.

Rock On

The teenage rock and roll dream comes true. The mighty Sidewinders allowed me to use their great song, "Bad Crazy Sun" in The Devil's Highway. Then Calexico cut "Across the Wire." (See below.) Then Eric Holland cut "The Devil's Highway" and "Teresita" on two separate CDs. Then my BLOOD Shawn Phillips did the musical soundtrack to the Hummingbird's Daughter audiobook, and is releasing his own "The Devil's Highway" on his new live album. Then the punk godfathers, Squirtgun, recorded their own "Across the Wire" on their hot new live CD.


I have often mentioned here my friendship with singe-songwriter Shawn Phillips (Contribution, Second Contribution, Collaboartion, Faces, Bright White, Furthermore, No Category, etc.).
