As part of the mid-’90s revival of roots-rock, the Wallflowers held a special connection to one of the original inspirations: vocalist/songwriter/guitarist Jakob Dylan. Dylan is the son of a legend, Bob Dylan, but the Wallflowers are more influenced by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers than ’60s folk-rock. Lyrically, Jakob Dylan remains a close companion to the original Dylan. The band’s “Bringing Down the Horse” album, released in 1996, produced the alternative radio hit “6th Avenue Heartache.” The single “One Headlight” became a Top 10 hit, pushing “Bringing Down the Horse” into the upper reaches of the charts. “One Headlight” won Grammys for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Don’t miss the free concert by The Wallflowers on Aug. 30, 2019.
