Like Father, Like Son: Willie and Lukas Nelson
Throughout music’s history, there have been many a child that has followed their parent’s footsteps and dreams into the music industry. Off the top of my head, I think of Hank Williams and Hank Jr, Arlo and Woodie Guthrie, Alan and Robin Thicke, Johnny and Rosanne Cash, Bob Marley and his sons Ziggy and Damian, just to name a few.
Today’s post is about Willie Nelson and his son Lukas Nelson.
In October 2008 Lukas dropped out of college to pursue his music career full-time. Lukas called Anthony Logerfo (drummer), Tato Melgar (percussionist), Merlyn Kelly (bassist), and formed Promise of the Real. The band released its first full-length record, “Promise of the Real,” in December 2010.
Close your eyes and listen to how similar they sound.
I have a couple of questions for you, my readers... please indulge me with your honest opinions.
- Do you prefer the individual videos or do you prefer to see the playlist (or perhaps both) on the posts?
- I’m toying with the idea of doing a Like Father, Like Son series. Would you be interested in seeing something like this here on the blog? If so, tell me who you would most like to read about or hear the comparisons of their music. I am also open to Father/Daughter and Mother/Son and Mother/Daughter suggestions as well.
