Jakob Dylan & The Wallflowers
August 14, 2009
It's not surprising that Bob Dylan's son Jakob would try his hand at making music; what is surprising is the level of success he and his Wallflowers have achieved, well beyond most of the other '60s' rock-star progeny who flooded the market in the '90s. Cynics may say it's all due to Jakob's family connections and striking cheekbones, but the fact is that the guy has developed some songwriting chops. And the rest of the Wallflowers are no slouches either; they're a talented band that knows how to play good old-fashioned no-nonsense American-heartland rock & roll.
