Do you like the blues, the letter G, and songs about dying? No, well you’re probably going to hate today’s tune by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]G-Love[/lastfm]. It’s called ‘Fixin to Die’.
G-Love doesn’t stand for Gangsta Love, it’s Garrett Dutton’s stage name. The “G” stands for Garrett and the “Love”, he said, just sounded right.
He is the front man of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]G-Love and Special Sauce[/lastfm], an alternative blues/hip-hop band from Philly. The band formed in 1993 and have put out 11 studio albums.
Today’s tune does not include the Special Sauce, it is off G-Love‘s fourth solo album, ‘Fixin to Die.‘ It does however include [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Avett Brothers[/lastfm], who also helped produce the album.

Here he is performing with his long time friend, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jack Johnson[/lastfm].
