About “I Can Have The Blues,” Glenn Alexander says:
We are excited about this new video created by Joe Howell for the L.A.X. song ‘I Can Have The Blues’ from our debut album LaRue/Alexander L.A.X. Everything is relative and anyone and everyone can – and will – have the blues from time to time. The legendary Southside Johnny is blowin’ blues harp and adding some support vocals, as well as commentary, to this song.
