Check out Beach Slang’s “Tommy In The 80s”, an ode to the late, great Tommy Keene. The album (and apparently song) features contributions from Replacements’ Tommy Stinson, a longtime acquaintance of Keene’s dating back to shared tours in the 80s and 90s.
Stinson may also remember sharing a stage at the House of Blues New Orleans with Tommy’s nephew Hunter Keene (Matt Surfin’ & Friends) while opening for the Lemonheads this summer. Or maybe not!
Beach Slang will be hitting the road with the Goo Goo Dolls this spring so don’t be surprised if there’s some love for TK on those stages! Who needs a hologram when Tommy’s in your heart!?1
