It takes mental toughness to create uncompromising music and Morrissey is a perfect example. Never afraid to speak his mind when he was the singer of «The Smiths», his brilliance and wit outshine that of just about any other musician, leading «New Musical Express» to call him the «most influential musician of all time». And of course, Beth Hart, the restless fighter: This blueswoman works the dramatic ups and downs of her life into such powerful blues/rock, it sends chills down your spine. On her current album, «Bang Bang Boom Boom», she even spices up her songs with a pinch of soul and jazz.
