Take a Ride With The Rides

by Tom King

Stephen Stills is taking some time off from CSN to front a blues-rock project with guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepard. The two have teamed with keyboardist Barry Goldberg(from the Electric Flag) in a band called 'The Rides".

They wanted their first album to be all original material but stills says they didnt have time to polish all of the new songs son the album "Can't Get Enough' will feature a few covers including the old Stooges song 'Search & Destroy and also "Word Game" a Stills rant on racism that appeared as an acoustic number on Stills II.

Shepard said that the three are committed to the band which will tour this fall and said they could begin work on a second album before the end of the year.
