*Formed in the late '70s as
Rodney Crowell's road band, The Notorious Cherry Bombs' original members include guitarists Vince Gilland Richard Bennett, keyboardist Tony Brown, steel guitarist Hank DeVito, drummer Larrie Londinand bassist Emory Gordy, Jr.With a modified lineup the musicians went to the studio in early 2004 to record "The Notorious Cherry Bombs", their first album as a band.
*From the liner notes of Richard's solo album, "Themes From A Rainy Decade", Mark Knopfler writes, "For almost ten years now I've felt very lucky having Richard Bennett as a pal and as a member of the band. His quiet, self-effacing manner hides an encyclopaedic knowledge of all kinds of roots and rock music, from Hillbilly to Hawaiian, played effortlessly on a variety of instruments which appear out of a flight case as big as an Airstream trailer...... May his cracking guitar playing find a place in your life as it has in mine."
*His stinging electric guitar kickoff to Emmylou Harris' "Heaven Only Knows" (from her Bennett-produced "Bluebird" album) was the first sound heard on the 2004 season-opening episode of
The Sopranos. [ [http://www.tennessean.com/entertainment/music/archives/04/07/54523185.shtml Tennessean] ]
