Music Collaboration

John Fogerty just released an album “Wrote a Song For Everyone” comprised solely of past Creedence Clearwater Revival and solo songs.  The hook is he’s collaborating with a different artist for each song of that artist’s choosing.  i.e. Foo Fighters performing “Fortunate Son” and  Dawes performing “Someday Never Comes” I’m not sure if it means anything […]

New Music Tuesday

Laura Marling has released a gem.  She’s only been making records since 2008 and each one has been more impressive than the next but her fourth album “Once I Was An Eagle” has her sounding self-assured, angry and yet, still vulnerable.  Laura mentions in a Spin Magazine interview that “I’d been traveling a lot and listening to […]

Get Out

I think of a better way to spend a part of your 3 day weekend at The Hollywood Bowl with Fleetwood Mac.   Sure, it’s without Christine McVie so you won’t hear “Over My Head” or “Say You Love Me” or “Little Lies” or “You Make Lovin’ Fun” but they’ll still play “Don’t Stop” (how […]

Rockshow

I got a chance to see the Paul McCartney concert film Rockshow over the weekend and it made me nostalgic.  Not for the past, but for the way our rock stars used to approach their shows. First off, what I didn’t realize was that McCartney approached this show from 1976 as a truly band project. […]
