David Clayton-Thomas: still out there and still singin’

The internet truly is a wonderful thing. I decided to check up on the former lead singer of Blood, Sweat and Tears, David Clayton-Thomas, and he has a web site and some new material out. Some of the new music is available as mp3s just for registering on the site!

He was the defining sound of BS&T back in the day, and he still has most of the range and feel he did then, if the tunes he chooses to sing might be a bit more down-tempo. That gritty tenor of his always sounded like a baritone to me until I tried to sing along – then I was reminded just what a range this guy had!

Anyway, if you loved his music in the 1960s and 1970s, check out the web site. David is almost 68 years old and he’s still going strong!
