Low Country Blues, Gregg Allman's first album in 14 years, is a collection of blues classics recorded by the Allman Brothers Band frontman with producer T Bone Burnett. Rolling Stone's David Fricke praised the record for its "austere, consciously antique production" and the way Allman's "blues-wolf growl" suits grim standards like Skip James' "Devil Got My Woman" and Amos Milburn's "Tears, Tears, Tears."

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
