Half Notes: Bill Chinnock – Badlands (1978; 2008 reissue)

Share this:

Vini “Mad Dog” Lopez, Gary W. Tallent, Danny Federici … Bill Chinnock? That’s right, Bill Chinnock was a major player in the early E Street years. When I was a young guy in the state of Maine, Chinnock actually ranked right up there with Bruce. His brand of soulful rock music resonated with me right from the start. The song “Something For Everybody” got a lot of airplay on rock radio. All of those years later, in the period just after his untimely death, Bill’s groundbreaking record was justifiably reissued. For fans of Springsteen, then or now, this really shouldn’t be missed.

‘Half Notes’ are quick-take thoughts on music from Something Else! Reviews, presented whenever the mood strikes us.
