My Morning Jacket’s Tom Blankenship lists his Top 10 albums of 2012

Tom Blankenship

My Morning Jacket was formed in 1998 in Louisville, Kentucky by singer, songwriter and guitarist Jim James (real name: James Olliges Jr). The original line-up also included three members of the Shelbyville emo-punk band Winter Death Club; namely John McQuade (later known as Johnny Quaid – guitar and vocals), Tom Blankenship (later known as Two Tone Tommy – bass) and J. Roberts (later known as J. Glenn – drums).” [Wikipedia]

My Morning Jacket will stay busy this holiday season, with three shows at Port Chester’s Capitol Theatre (tickets) that lead up to a New Year’s Eve show in Boston, and then the Hurricane Sandy relief benefit at Asbury Park’s Paramount Theatre on January 2 (tickets), a show that’s hosted by Matt Pinfield and also features Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Joseph Arthur, Nicole Atkins, River City Extension, Tangiers Blues Band and “special guests.”
