The Afghan Whigs’ new single is a cover song that they recorded in tribute to the band’s late guitarist Dave Rosser, who passed away last month following a brave battle with inoperable colon cancer. Rosser’s incredible guitar work can be heard on 2014’s ‘Do To The Beast’ and the album released this year ‘In Spades.’ Rosser had also played with Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan in The Gutter Twins and in the post-Whigs project, The Twilight Singers, prior to the return of The Afghan Whigs in 2011.
“You Want Love” was first recorded by the now-defunct New Orleans band Pleasure Club, whose musical force James Hall contributes vocals to The Afghan Whigs’ new version of the song. Thank you for the fine music Mr. Rosser.

It would be most helpful if you included any information on touring and show plans, contact information and social media, and any interesting stories about the project and the musicians involved. Please note any profanity in your correspondence and know that on WUDR we must abide by all FCC regulations; however, on Reveal we have far greater latitude on what can be played on an Internet stream.
Thank you! Cheers! – Dr. J
