Musicians and coffee

We aren’t surprised when we see that musicians brand themselves with alcohol.  ZZ Top and Sammy Hagar have Tequilla.  Jay-Z has his cognac and of course Willie Nelson has his Whiskey River to name but a few. The new go-to product for musicians now seems to be coffee. St. Vincent is a big coffee fan. […]
