The World's Richest Opening Act...
Jim Dolan is rich - ungodly rich. He owns Cablevision, serving New York City. His dad founded HBO. Jim Dolan owns the New York Knicks. The New York Rangers. And Madison Square Garden.
So what is he doing messing around with Americana music? Living his childhood dream, that's what. The Bear played the instrumental "Violet's Song" from Dolan's band, JD and the Straight Shot, last year. An instrumental because Dolan's voice wasn't up to snuff (I'm being nice...)
Now, viola! JD and the Straighht Shot have made a more than listenable disc, Ballyhoo!, that includes this wonderful song, "Better Find A Church", written by Dolan and produced by, of all people, Rodney Crowell.
So Jim Dolan's ego trip has turned into something worth listening to - who would have thought?
"Better Find a Church" - hear it on the Bear!
