The guitar tells the sordid story. The strings seem to scream with pain as his fingers run from high-to-low extremes. The minute-long intro brings a once-chatty crowd to near silence.

Finally, with the pent up aggression of a man separated from his woman too long, he steps to the mic: "Well, it's flooding down in Texas, and all the telephone lines are down. I said, it's flooding down in Texas baby, and all of the telephone lines are down. I've been trying to call my baby, but I can't get a single sound."

After his stirring rendition of "Texas Flood," Jordan flashes a quick smile at his parents. They applaud wildly, as does everybody else in the place, at the performance their 15-year-old son had put on.

"I'd say he's definitely one of those people who was born to play the guitar," Andrew Black, a local musician said. "A lot of kids know the notes, but they just don't have the feel for it. He does."

Jordan, a 10th grader at Pace Academy in Atlanta, is a self-proclaimed "shy guy" at school. But after the final bell of the day rings, he causes quite a stir with his guitar.

His musical abilities are not exactly a surprise as his mother, Micki Gonzalez has multiple degrees in music and is a choral director. Jordan has taken lessons since he was 11 and been on stage since he was 12, playing wherever he could. Juggling school work with his budding music career is something he enjoys.

"That's what's really special about Jordan," said Chicago Joe Jones, Jordan's former guitar teacher. "He's committed to the music. He's really committed to being a part of the music."

Jordan's parents have also made a commitment to his music, which is especially helpful because he doesn't have a driver's license. He won't be 16 until March, so one – or both – of his parents accompany him to every gig.

"I'm the driver and part-time roadie," joked his father, an attorney. "I also double as an equipment guy too, I guess."

There are some places Jordan's not allowed to play, because of his age. The young musician hopes that will be the only age-related barrier that will get in his way.

"I really want people to enjoy the music because it's good, not because it's good for someone my age," he said.

This particular night at Maddy's in Decatur, Jordan isn't the youngest one on stage. Jones hosts a jam on Thursdays and encourages his students to come and play before a live audience. Jordan is, however, the youngest in the house band, led by Jones. Jordan performs with Jones' group several times a week, when his schedule allows.

"This kid really is something special," Jones said. "And he's only getting better."

Last year, Jones needed a rhythm man in his band for the 2006 Atlanta Blues Challenge. He asked Jordan to join the band and retire his student status. It was the first time Tommy Brown, an Atlanta blues artist, saw him.

"He was really green," Brown recalled. "At that time he didn't know much about stage presence and things like that."

A year later, "Fantastic!" is how Brown describes Jordan's progress.

Over the past three years Jordan has thrown himself into his music. He's started a band of his own, Swagger, with three of his friends and taken to the live performances he used to not be so fond of. He's also focused on being a better rhythm player, one of the harder aspects of playing guitar, he said.

"If you really want to be good, you've got to learn how to back somebody up," Jordan said. "You've really got to know when to pull back and how to stay out of the way. There's no substitute for learning that, you've just got to get out there an embarrass yourself a few times and then you'll get it."

"I've done that a lot," he added with a laugh.

Jordan's growth also includes the depth and breadth of the music he plays and enjoys. He's decided he wants to make a career out of being a musician and he plans to add song writing to his list of talents. He's looking forward recording some of his work and "really branching out as an artist," he said.

"When you play with people who are so much better than you, it really makes you want to get better, you know?"

 
 
 
New Talent in Atlanta GA USA
 
JORDAN GONZALEZ
 
  “Man can he play!” is often the refrain heard from music lovers and professional musicians alike when Jordan González, 15, takes to the stage, Strat in hand. Jordan’s guitar playing and song writing have been recognized as sophisticated and creative, reflecting a skill well beyond his years.
 He has been performing regularly since age 13 when he first started playing the blues and rock-n-roll in and around Atlanta with The Chicago Joe Jones Band. In the fall of 2006, Jordan got his first taste of the “big time” when The Chicago Joe Jones Band won the Atlanta Blues Challenge and went on to compete in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee.
 Jordan still plays with The Chicago Joe Jones Band several nights a month. He is also a founding member of the band Swagger. Swagger recently competed in the 2007 Atlanta Blues Society Challenge and won the Peoples’ Choice Award. Swagger plays regularly at several venues throughout the city. Jordan has performed with many of the top blues musicians in Atlanta.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Jordan has the potential of becoming the newest hottest guitarist around
You wait and see !!!

Paul Rodgers  has signed on to perform at London's O2 Arena as part of a tribute to late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. "Ahmet had many gifts," Rodgers said in a statement. "His soulful freedom to love and lift others was just one. Now even in his passing he is still bringing people together and inspiring us. I am deeply honored to be a part of his musical legacy and pay tribute to his memory." As previously reported, the upcoming concert will also feature a reunion performance from Led Zeppelin,as well as Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings and special guests Pete Townsend, Paolo Nutini and Foreigner. Originally scheduled to take place this month, the tribute show was pushed back to Dec. 10 after Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page--Rodgers' bandmate in The Firm--fractured his finger.

BILL WAS ONE OF PAUL'S BIGGEST FANS

Minnesota Police Officer Killed in Iraq

FALLS CHURCH, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--William Lawrence Juneau, a former officer with the Chisago County (Minn.) Sheriff’s Department, was killed yesterday in Iraq when the military convoy in which he was traveling was struck by an improvised explosive device approximately 50 miles southeast of Baghdad.

Mr. Juneau, 36, of Rush City, Minnesota, was working as an international police advisor (IPA) for DynCorp International in Iraq. The incident occurred at approximately 2:35 p.m. local time. After the attack, Mr. Juneau was transported to the 86th Combat Support Hospital, where he died of injuries sustained in the attack.

Mr. Juneau was assigned to the Civilian Police Advisory Training Team (CPATT), the component of the U.S. military Multinational Security Transition Command – Iraq (MNSTC-I) responsible for the U.S.-led effort to train and equip the 135,000-member Iraqi police service. DynCorp International is responsible for recruiting, training, equipping, and supporting the 700-member U.S. contingent of trainers through a contract with the U.S. Department of State.

Mr. Juneau had been working as an international police adviser in Iraq since June 2006. Before joining DynCorp International, he spent four years as a deputy with the Chisago County Sheriff’s Department. From 1997-2002, he was an investigator with the Pine County (Minn.) Sheriff’s Department, and from 1995-1997, he served as an officer with the St. James (Minn.) Police Department.

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Bill Juneau,” said DynCorp International president and CEO Herbert J. Lanese. “He was an unselfish and courageous young man who left his home to serve his country to train police in Iraq. He was performing a vital service for our country and for the Iraqi people under very difficult circumstances, and we remain honored to have had him serve with us.”

  Say It's Not True - FREE 46664 Download

Queen and Paul Rodgers Brand New Recording For Free Download Especially For Nelson Mandela's 46664 On World Aids Day Available Via Queenonline

Spurred on by their commitments as Ambassadors to Nelson Mandela's 46664 HIV AIDS global campaign, on which the spotlight will fall December 1 with a World Aids Day awareness and fundraising concert in Johannesburg, South Africa, Brian, Roger and Paul have announced they have rushed to finish a track specially written for 46664 by Roger and have it available as a free download in time for this coming Saturday's benefit concert.

The track, Roger's "Say It's Not True", originally came to light for the launch of the 46664 campaign back in November 2003. Roger wrote the song as a gift to Nelson Mandela (or 'Madiba', as he is fondly know), and performed it live for him for the first time with Brian and Dave Stewart at the inaugural 46664 concert in Cape Town that month. The song carries the message that HIV AIDS is something that can affect any one of us.

Having played two previous 46664 concerts, but committed in the studio this year, Roger, Brian, and Paul decided to revisit the song, with all three of them sharing the vocals, and to make the song the band's message of support to Nelson Mandela this year.

"By making the song available for free", says Taylor, "we hope to help Madiba with his campaign to get across the message that no-one is safe from infection. We have to be aware, we have to protect ourselves and those we love. The song follows the line of his personal message: it's in our own hands to bring a stop to this."

Click here to download 'Say It's Not True'

A specially made video for "Say It's Not True" will be premiered during this Saturday's 46664 Johannesburg World AIDS Day concert and the track will be made available as a FREE download exclusively on
www.queenonline.com and through www.46664.com www.46664global.com, www.queenpluspaulrodgers.com and www.paulrodgers.com for World Aids Day, December 1.
