Bakersfield Sound By Keanu Reeves- March 28, 2019


Keanu Reeves wins rave reviews from fellow stranded airline passengers after their flight from San Francisco to Burbank was diverted to Bakersfield, CA. The airline rented a van for the rest of the journey, and The Matrix actor played tour guide and gave a lesson in the country music rebel movement in the 1950's and 60's known as the Bakersfield Sound, which gave us Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. Tom Waits stars in new Jim Jarmusch zombie movie, along with Iggy Pop and Sturgill Simpson. Cage the Elephant gets an assist from Beck on new song about vampires. Bryan Ferry will reunite with a couple of members of 2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Roxy Music at the ceremony tomorrow night in Brooklyn.
