Lost and found: Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers



Americana Rock was huge in the ‘80s. If it wasn’t John Mellencamp singing about Pink Houses, then it was Bruce Springsteen reminiscing about his Glory Days. However, not all heartland artists are remembered as well as Bob Seger, so this week we shine a light on those artists that flew under the radar.

Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers were appointed by Rolling Stone and others to be the next big thing after the release of their 1988 album Rumble. Somewhere between Gun 'N Roses, Nirvana and rap music, Americana Rock took a seat near the back of the bus, but we’ll always have If We Never Meet Again that peaked at No. 48 on the charts.
