The road eventually comes to an end, or at least heads in a different direction. Last week Brian Henneman of the Bottle Rockets shared an open and personal letter announcing his retirement from music. In a career that has spanned nearly 30 years and more than ten albums, Henneman has produced an enviable catalog of songs that are gritty, feisty, and are often imparted with equal parts wisdom and wit.
Here’s a Bottle Rockets classic – a song that has launched a thousand bar bands.
Thanks to Brian, Mark, John, and Keith for all the wonderful music and memories. Best wishes on the next stage of your journeys.
