Jay Gordon and Blues Venom just released a new single. "Eve Of Destruction" They thought it was appropriate for the times we are living in. They put a new spin on a great old song. Jay really rocks this one. For those unfamiliar with Jay Gordon, he is a West-Coast, certified Bad Mofo Blues Rock guitar player. Eve of Destruction" is a protest song written by P. F. Sloan in mid-1964. It's 2022 now and I find it extraordinary that a song written over 55 years ago (an eternity in our modern world) is still as relevant today as it was back then. AVAILABLE IN OUR MUSIC STORE ON THIS WEBSITE. EVE OF DESTRUCTION
