Great Female Guitarists

The new issue of Rolling Stone just arrived touting the 100 Greatest guitarists of all time.  Can we just do away with this topic?  The order doesn’t matter.  We know Hendrix, Page, Clapton and Van Halen are always going to be listed in the top 10.  Most of the guitarists will be from the 60s […]

New Music Tuesday

More reissues from the 90s and releases from artists that one might say 7 of the 15 songs belong on a best of collection. Speaking of artists from the 90’s, Craig Armstrong is releasing the soundtrack album to In Time.  I’m not sure if In Time is going to be any good but it’s off to a good start […]

Bret McKenzie

I saw the Muppet movie over Thanksgiving weekend and while I had heard that it was quite good (which it was) the pleasant surprise was how great the original songs are in the film.  Credit is due to Bret McKenzie, the bearded member from  Flight Of The Conchords fame. As in all great musicals, well […]

Best. Thanksgiving movie. ever.

Some people would suggest that Planes, Trains & Automobiles is the choice but for my money it’s The Last Waltz. Recorded on Thanksgiving Day November 25, 1976 at The Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. I’ve made it an annual tradition to watch this brilliant concert film directed by Martin Scorsese about The Band’s final performance. […]

New Music Tuesday

NPR came out with a story earlier this year asking, “How Much Does It Cost To Make A Hit Song“.  Using a 2010 song from Rihanna the number is over $1 Million (not even including the video).  Well, the Rihanna machine is back for more and apparently the formula is working as she’s got a song in […]

The Collaboration

“I’d like to now bring out on stage…”  When I’m at shows those words always get me excited about which possible artist is waiting in the wings ready to step forward.  Sometimes, even if the names don’t earn an audible gasp (i.e. Beyonce or Bruce Springsteen) it can still be very cool. Last week at Dawes’ […]

Extra cool points if you take your Vespa to […]
