Rock Cellar Magazine

The impact of the musical contributions of Jesse Colin Young is undeniable.

As a founding member of seminal 1960s band the Youngbloods, the songwriter/singer attained success and notoriety with their version of the peace anthem “Get Together,” which hit No. 5 on the billboard charts when it was re-released in 1969.

Recently, Jesse Colin Young paid a visit to RockCellarTV studios for a special one-on-one video interview and performance session. During the candid and revealing chat, Jesse discusses the legacy of the Youngbloods, life in general, songwriting and much more.

Watch the interview below:

Jesse also strapped on an acoustic guitar for a special mini-concert as well, showcasing some material from his new album, Dreamers, as well as some classics. Watch and enjoy that below.

RockCellarTV was introduced a few years ago as an effort to allow larger-than-life music icons to get up close and personal, discussing whatever they want — for however long they want, resulting in some candid conversations about hits, successful albums and music legacies … as well as misses, scandals and anything else they were comfortable discussing.

Some of these chats took place at Rock Cellar HQ in California, while others were filmed on-location at venues (like the world famous Troubadour in Hollywood, in the case of our chat with John Oates) as the artists prepared for a gig. They’re all up on our YouTube channel.
