This name refers to two artists on Last.fm:
1) Charlie Pickett is a singer and guitarist known for his blend of old style rock
, and more, achieving underground fame from the 80s
onward playing as "Charlie Pickett and the Eggs". A native of Dania, Florida who's toured across the American south, his devotion to rock n roll
has meant old The Rolling Stones
style grooves and mid-60s garage rock
sounds with a healthy smattering of the vibes of the Ramones
and the Sex Pistols
. A kissing cousin musically of Flamin' Groovies
type power pop
groups, he's often played the Groovies' well-titled "Shake Some Action
", that being his mantra. His songs frankly deal with life on the road, drugs, sex, betrayal, and the like in a take-no-prisoners style that's brought him underground acclaim, particularly for his live performances.
With his backing band the Eggs, he first brought his hyped-up roots rock
sound to performing covers of British invaders such as Johnny Kidd and the Pirates
and Manfred Mann
, a loud cry of individuality when the prevailing cry of underground rockers was "no future." His first release was live LP titled 'Live at the Button
', and he quickly fired off a couple of good-to-great yet highly obscure records steeped in the blues, with plenty of guitar fireworks supplied by John Salton. His best known work is 2008's critically acclaimed 'Bar Band Americanus: The Best of Charlie Pickett And...
' (also known by similar titles).
2) Twentieth-century southeastern American bluesman Dan Pickett
also sometimes was labeled by this name.
