Title: Don't laugh..... Wish John could mentor Courtney Hadwin......
Post by: bigd on January 15, 2019, 12:59:43 am
Been following the 14 y/o little rocker Courtney Hadwin. Never Ever thought I would get into or become a fan from someone on one of the talent shows, but then a few people got me to check out her videos and wow I'm impressed. She has 'ol time soul. She discovered the likes of James Brown, Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, etc. from You Tube. Kind of like John did with that am radio station he talks about. She has dance moves that remind me of Johns in his younger days (obviously James Brown influenced). She stays true to herself (so far) by doing things her way and performing progressive rock style music, though others have told her to go more pop..... Sound familiar?

Before you all laugh me out of here let me say, I listen and enjoy many different artists though few have made major impressions on me.... except for John, Tom Petty, Bob Seger, Dillon, and a few others. I really believe this kid could help bring back the music we here all love. A little influence of John on her would be a Godsend.
