Biker Music All-Time Favorites
Happy Holidays From MJ Reynolds & Motorcycle Event News
A 1975 video of Arlo Guthrie singing "The Motorcycle Song" and explaining "the pickle" has been viewed 2.5 million times on YouTube. Here it is!
And here's my all-time favorites biker music list. See what you think.

Blackfoot - Train Train: Southern Rock's Best - Live w/DVD.
Big Engine - high energy, finely tuned Rock 'n Roll machine from Jacksonville, Florida. They play about 300 shows a year and turn down gigs. I saw them opening weekend of 2009 Daytona Bikeweek.
Bruce Springsteen's special boxed set of 3 CD/3 DVD released in Nov. 2010 takes on the title of a CD released in 1990 and promises to tell the story behind the music. It's also available in Blue Ray. The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town
Buckcherry - LA hard rockers band formed in 1995 that played Sturgis 2010 with ZZ Top at the Buffalo Chip. Their newest CD "All Night Long" was released in Aug. 2010.
Burnt River Band - plays original songs like "Broken Down HD Blues" at the Abate State conventions for New York, Ohio, Iowa, Pennsylvania, in Canada for the Brotherhood of Toronto (11 years), the Louie Run (all of them), Viet Nam Vets M.C. parties, and Easy Rider rodeos, including the nationals in Ventura California.
Charlie Brechtel Band - legendary biker and song writer. Charlie's best known album "Iron Buffalo" includes a tribute song to Indian Larry. He is the chief at BikersInnerCircle.com underground biker radio and video site - and the band has a brand new website. His band is the unofficial house band at the Legendary Buffalo Chip.
Charlie Daniels Band - known for songs like "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" and "Uneasy Rider." I saw him perform at the Myrtle Beach Rally, along with Shooter Jennings, and I tell you, that old boy can play the fiddle!
David Allan Coe - Outlaw, singer, song writer.
Doobie Brothers - It's tempting to stay with what's known and get the "Very Best Of" CD released in 2007. But they released a brand new album in Sept. 2010 titled "World Gone Crazy" and the new album may be most remarkable for the extent to which it stands completely on its own. Yes, World Gone Crazy is another chapter in one of the great American music stories, but it's neither comeback nor nostalgia
George Thorogood & The Destroyers - 30 years worth of recording classics like "Bad To The Bone" and "One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer."
