Detroit 67

Never been a fan of Sam Robertson. Its not that he isn't talented, it's because his genre of rock isn't what I am listening to much these days. But recently a friend from Detroit turned me on to a politically and racially charged song that speaks to the lingering effects of the race riots of 1967. A subject covered here previously. I was shocked at how close to the mark Sam hit at the feelings and emotions attached to that era especially given that he was born in Quebec in 1974. I wondered where his motivation and clear understanding of that time and place originated from? And I still do. I was seven when the riots broke out in Detroit and I have clear memories of that time and grew up with the after effects on that most difficult time in our history. So Sam you hit the mark and I'm a fan.
