The Power Popaholic Interview: Terry Adams of NRBQ

Over the course of four decades, NRBQ (short for the New Rhythm and Blues Quartet) has done musical genres from power pop to barrel-house blues to free jazz. Terry Adams has been the constant, playing with a rotating set of musicians for decades. Even a bout of throat cancer in 2004 couldn’t slow him down, and after a short break he recovered and reformed the band in 2007. I was privileged to talk with Terry about the new NRBQ album “Brass Tacks” which is due for distribution on June 17. But you can get an advance copy here.
