The Week: Paul Allen released a rock album and it's not terrible


Found this article on The Week--and I thought BE folks would get a kick out of it. I'm copying the first few paragraphs here, but follow the link for the full text. "On Monday, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen donated $1 million to the Jane Goodall Institute for wildlife conservation and ocean research in Africa. On Tuesday, he dropped a rock album. All in a week's work for the 60-year-old retiree, who in addition to founding Microsoft with Bill Gates, is now a sports magnate, a philanthropist, Forbes' 53rd-richest man in the world, and a pretty good songwriter and guitar player. Everywhere at Once, Allen's first studio album with his band The Underthinkers, is the kind of easy, country-rock that a dad who grew up loving the Eagles could probably get behind. Allen wrote or co-wrote all 13 songs, and plays guitar on every track, alongside collaborators like Chrissie Hyde of the Pretenders, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, and Joe Walsh of the Eagles."
