Scott Patton and the blues rock gothic boogie haunt of “I Don’t Want To Say Goodbye”
Scott Patton (The Color Part 2), on the blues rock Gothic boogie haunt “I Don’t Want to Say Goodbye”, dices styles creating movement and atmosphere that is part rambling and jamming with the singing tombstones at the Haunted Castle in Disneyland to stirring drinks and stories in a backwater dive bar in some small town just south of Atlanta in 1975. There is a cinematic sense of smoking too many cigarettes and having one too many beer and crying through your guitar lines while blues rock with deep roots twisted by the devil of Rock and Roll looks over your shoulder.
Patton musical muscles started pumping blood back in the 80’s fueled by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Aerosmith. Patton’s solo work still has a lot to say. Still rocking and kicking like a mule.
