Hot on the heels of a triumphant night performing at Molly Malone’s in LA in support of the Playing For Change Foundation, Emmy/Golden Globe nominated actor/singer/songwriter Rob Morrow caught up with All Access to discuss “Tyranny of Beauty,” the new single from Rob Morrow Band featuring Carlos Calvo, his PledgeMusic campaign to help fund the making of their debut album, Northern Exposure and his favorite acts from Lollapalooza.
Here’s an excerpt:
AA: You mentioned that you really enjoy Jack White. Is there any musician out there today that you would absolutely love to perform with?
RM: Oh, boy. Yeah. Jesus, I don’t even know where to begin. Well, I mean, Mick Jagger would be probably high on my list. That said, Jack White for sure. Let’s see. Springsteen, of course. You know who I’d like to perform with I think maybe more than anyone? I’d love to sing “Wasted Time” with the Eagles, which is a great ballad of theirs that I just have always loved. Van Morrison was a giant influence. My friend produces Jimmy Kimmel so I was over the other day, and Dave Matthews performed. He’d be fun to play with. I could go on and on.
AA: And my final question that I like to ask all musicians is, at the end of the day, what do you hope people take away from your music?
RM: Well, I mean, more than anything, the goal for me has to be entertaining. I have to just give people some joy. And then after that, possibly an insight. I wouldn’t want to get too pretentious with it, but I think if you look at my lyrics, there are potentially interesting philosophical insights or spiritual insights and metaphysical notions that I would love to … None of which are my original ideas, they’re just ones I’ve glommed on to. But I’d love to spread the good word. I’d love to open hearts and make people feel good. If I can do that, then that’s a lot.
