Bill Rotella - The Other Side (Lyric Video)

"Bill Rotella's "The Other Side" single is blistering....... Rotella delivers his message with bluesy riffing, an ominous harmonica, and a country-rock locomotive backbeat. This is socio-political fisticuffs with the soulful power of Jackson Browne and Bruce Cockburn." - Harry Watters, Wavelength LA.
