One might be tempted to think Chichester’s status as a area Rock legend might not be well deserved as a result on his antics.
If so, obviously you haven’t listened to him. Chichester’s regional dominance is supreme because he’s a fantastic human being and even better performer. He’s like a homegrown Ryan Adams with little more soul and a harmonica a la mode. His songs are rich with Midwest emotion, longing and ire, often set to swampy, bluesy guitar or piano.
See him at the 20th Century Theater with Roger Klug.
