The Devils behind Jagger’s ‘great lost album’

Posted in Uncategorized on July 8, 2018 by J.J.

The greatest music never sold. The greatest album you’ll never hear. The greatest band you’ve never heard.

Add “The Great Lost Jagger Album” to the retellings of The Red Devils’ ill-fated 1992 blues recordings with Mick Jagger.

That’s the story inside the special Jagger “collector’s edition” of Rolling Stone magazine, out on U.S. newsstands this month in honor of the head Stone’s 75th birthday.

No Fightin’ is back again

Posted in Uncategorized on April 26, 2015 by J.J.

After an extended, unanticipated hiatus, No Fightin’ is back.

The past year has been much busier than I could have anticipated, with a lot of work and personal commitments that took away most every free hour not devoted to sleep.

This blog was never intended to be a “blog” per se, with random daily posts. Instead, we focused on deep cuts that we think are of interest to Red Devils fans and newcomers alike, with a back catalogue of info that is valuable anytime. It was nice to see people coming to the site and contacting us, even when we weren’t always available.

I can’t guarantee that you will see posts every week on here going forward, but we will do our best to post more frequently. But know that when we do post, it will be quality info that will always come back to keeping the flame burning for The Red Devils.

Ready for 2012

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on January 19, 2012 by J.J.

Thanks everyone for visiting No Fightin’ in 2011 — and thanks for letting us recover a little into 2012!

We have lots of plans for the blog this year, the 20th anniversary of The Red Devils’ “King King.”

Keep watching this space for some new Red Devils and Lester Butler goodies. You can also follow us on Twitter or watch a bunch of cool videos on our YouTube channel.

Lester Butler Tribute Band coverage & news

Posted in Uncategorized on May 18, 2011 by J.J. will be attending the Lester Butler Tribute Band gig at the 22nd Annual Simi Valley Cajun Festival in Simi Valley, Calif., Memorial Day weekend, May 28 and 29. Also performing that weekend are Los Fabulocos with Kid Ramos, the Mannish Boys, Elvin Bishop, Kirk Fletcher, John Nemeth and a whole lot more.

We’ll be out there live, mostly shooting pictures and posting updates and more @nofightin on Twitter.

Which reminds us, we’ve made a No Fightin’ tumblr site, in case you spend time there. Here is the menu of where to find No Fightin’, and what we’re doing where:

  • NO FIGHTIN’: The original, the main site — you’re on it now. Deep reviews, news and history on the bands.
  • TWITTER: We post there often, with links back to and other links and news we find interesting. It’s not always Red Devils, but always something good. Follow @nofightin.
  • YOUTUBE: Posting rare videos there, as well as making playlists so you don’t have to search all over for vids.
  • TUMBLR: Just added ourselves to the blog site, where we’re posting random photos, videos and more. Follow

And if you really love us, shop in the No Fightin’ store!
