Fortunate Son


Back in the production days of season 1 (seems like a long, long time ago) Kurt had the idea to close episode 108 with an instrumental version of “Fortunate Son.” The dramatic flow that was occurring on screen had a lot to do with sons, some fortunate and some not so. I got together with the awesomely talented Lyle Workman and we recorded this one morning at his Burbank studio. Brian Scheuble, another one of the great LA recording engineer/mixers that I can call friend, made this piece of music sound that much more rich and compelling.

A bunch of fans have been talking this piece up on the various message boards. Well, for those fortunate sons (and daughters) who have stumbled on to this site, here is your reward...

Saw the episode and instantly recognised the song but couldn't place the title. My only recollection was the lyrics "it ain't me" so, like many others, I searched that phrase. Within 30 seconds I realised the phrase was not the title and refined the search and found you here.
This track is one of those rare covers that equals the original, because, like the others, it does not try to do the same as the original.
Absolutely beautiful, thank you Lyle and Bob.

Thanks a ton for taking the time to post this up for the fans to enjoy. After the entire music industry has shot it's self in the foot with bad music and bad business, it is good to see there are still some exceptions to the rule.

It took me some digging but I finally found my way to your blog and this song. I was in and out of sleep as the episode ended but what grabbed me was this song. I was wide awake and had to hear it again. Thank you for this.
