To Nick Lowe at Babeville last night, a terrific venue for a performer who is one of my all-time favorite songwriters. (He liked the venue himself, commenting that in the UK they have the Royal Albert Hall or "the Dog and Duck" with nothing in between.) All of those English rockers started out by listening to American music. Keith and Mick became friends when Keith saw that Mick was carrying a Howlin' Wolf record he hadn't heard. John Lennon loved Chuck Berry; Paul was into Buck Owens. Nick Lowe, I think, had a lot of Buddy Holly and Everly Brothers recordings, and in his mind's eye I'm sure he's at least Carl Perkins, and maybe Elvis.
