My big interest, aside from Pete Seeger and folk music, is The Mother Road, Route 66. Although the road was decommissioned in 1985, it remains a part of the our American consciousness.
But is it strictly an American thing? Not by a long shot. Route 66 is, it seems, a world-wide phenomenon as witnessed by this video I found on Ron's "Route 66 News" Blog.
This is Moscow musician Dmitry Novokolsky picking on Bobby Troup’s “Route 66.”
