Easy Riders On The Storm

Uploaded .

This tune was written on the day I bought my vintage Yamaha CP-25 electric piano and returned to hear that Dennis Hopper had passed away. I fired up the gear and cranked this out. The sound of the piano made me feel like Ray Manzarek…thus the title. It was the first thing I played on that keyboard. I love new toys. I had also been listening to a lot of Burning Spear that week…so that explains the dub feel.
