(Paul Simon, Bob Dylan et al) selects Gary Lucas as one of his favorite artists in his recent Huffington Post blog:
New York native guitar monster and devilish-voiced composer Gary Lucas lives in his own frequency. A compulsive truth-teller and an earnest artist with a riveting presence. The Grammy-nominated Lucas co-penned Jeff Buckley's "Grace" and "Mojo Pin" and Joan Osborne's "Spider Web", to name a few. Collaborations include the great Captain Beefheart, Jerry Harrison (of Talking Heads), John Cale, Lou Reed, Yael Naim, Iggy Pop, Van Dyke Parks, and Chris Cornell. Lucas's music imagination is infinite, but startwith his take on the Syd Barrett title "Astronomy Domine," from the 1992 album "Gods and Monsters". It's spooky and enigmatic. Currently touring.
