Col. Bruce Hampton

Col. Bruce Hampton

Wikepedia describes Bruce Hampton as a "Surrealist American musician." While that's a good try, it's simply impossible to put into words the impact he has had not only as a musician based out of Atlanta for more than 40 years, but as a bandleader who has opened the door to creativity and musical exploration for legions of artists. In the late 60s, Bruce's Hampton Grease Band played free shows at Piedmont Park with the Allman Brothers Band and recorded the album Music to Eat for Columbia Records in 1971. Bruce has made more than 15 albums solo and with his various groups including the Aquarium Rescue Unit, The Fiji Mariners, the Codetalkers and the Quark Alliance. The 2013 documentary, Basically Frightened: The Musical Madness of Col. Bruce Hampton, Ret. features Dave Matthews, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Billy Bob Thornton and many more artists talking about how Bruce changed their lives and trying to explain why he is the "the coolest extraterrestrial you've never heard of."
