Rich Mahan (from the album Hot Chicken Wisdom available on Snortin’ Horse Records)
What makes a wiseman? Wikipedia has no description and Mid-Eastern history has Wise Men as either Magi or Kings. So, technically, the name is up for grabs since neither technology or the bible claim ownership. Rich Mahan picks up the baton, the man with Hot Chicken Wisdom (his latest release), standing on both pulpit and soapbox to deliver roughly three-minute sermon rants addressing our times, suggesting life choices that have worked for him (“Coffee in the Morning”), mojo remedies to cure all ills (“Hot Chicken & an Ice Cold 40”), and a community choral sing-a-long (“Stoned as a Roman Slave”).
Backed by a Country Rock’n’Roll band that sticks a funky street parade shuffle underneath the Hot Chicken Wisdom cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Loose Lucy”, and matters of the heart on the back burner when Rich Mahan turns up the heat on The Bee Gee’s “To Love Somebody” as a smoldering southern rock anthem. Write your truth is the advice Rich Mahan uses when his pen sends a last chance letter in “Open Up Your Heart” and puts his hard work on the map with “Hippie in the City” while he becomes an equal opportunity slacker for “Daydrinking” and “I Smoke Pot”. Summer is here and the beat hits the street as Rich Mahan struts into Hot Chicken Wisdom on opening cut “Boots Off” and issues a warning when seasonal dancing takes you outside with “Tick on My Taint”.
