Classic and new, featured on the May music menu

 

You know, even though I spend a good deal of time listening to, researching and writing about classic rock, I still get a kick from coming across artists who we haven't heard from in a while, who are still making music.

Case in point #1: Dave Mason, co-founder of Traffic, guitarist and songwriter. His career has also included stints with Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, Fleetwood Mac, and dozens of solo artists whose names would fill the page. Mason has been recording solo albums since 1970, but until no, just one (26 Letters -- 12 Notes in 2008) since the turn of the millennium.
