On May 23, The Afghan Whigs reunion
officially kicked off with a sold-out show at New York City’s Bowery
Ballroom. Leading up to the concert, the band released a new song — a
great cover of an old obscure Soul song called “See and Don’t See” by
Marie Queenie Lyons — as a free download through theafghanwhigs.com,
then performed the tune on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Murray Stall, drummer for new Alternative/Progressive rockers The Desert Gun, greets me in the glow. Tall, thin and always talking or moving, Stall wears skinny jeans and, on his left arm, a large tattoo peeks out from his shirt. A passionate type with a ton of energy, he started music at 14.
