Last Waltz

It’s the greatest concert film and it was re-created last year in San Francisco.  This year it’s going to New York.  It’s a nice idea but it will never add up to the original. Last year I posted The Band’s “Don’t Do It” In 2011, I posted  Neil Diamond’s “Dry Your Eyes”. This year I’m […]

Black Friday Record Store Day

Much like there is now two days of Black Friday (Thanksgiving Day and Friday), there is now officially two record store days (one in April and now one on Black Friday).  Avoid the long lines with random weirdos at Best Buy, Target and Wal-Mart and stand in a long line with your fellow vinyl weirdos. […]

Setlist.fm

For someone that can’t go to every concert, I’m thankful for setlist.fm. I really don’t know much about the site.  It seems to be run like Wikipedia letting the fans update the site.  It has over 980,000 concert setlists of more than 543,00 artists including tour and song statistics, personal statistics, videos and much more.   And […]

John F. Kennedy…Rockstar

He was charismatic, good looking and had fabulous hair and meant to be a music video star so here are a number of videos that feature the 35th President of the United States with original footage and/or creative interpretations of that fateful day on November 22, 1963. Human League “Seconds” Steve Stein/Steinski and Mass Media […]

I had to look twice when I saw that the one and only Martin Short is performing in Orange County?!?  What could one expect?  Perhaps a little song… A little dance A little scene from Miss Sassy Pants On Sunday, Beck for the first time will […]

A Christmas Gift For You 50 years running

It’s a day that changed history forever and people still talk about what exactly happened and how this came to be.  And while this does pertain to the Kennedy assassination, I’m referring to “A Christmas Gift For You” one of my all time favorite albums.  I think Ms. Darlene Love had a pretty good year […]

New Music Tuesday

It’s like the 60s all over again as Jake Bugg releases his second album of 2013.  Seriously who does this anymore.   Good on Jake.  The 19 year old  follows up his self titled debut album that was released in the States in April of this year with  Shagri-La. Shangri-La is named after the music […]

Danny Whitten

“I Don’t Want To Talk About It” is one of the most beautiful breakup songs ever written.  It’s been covered by Rod Stewart, Rita Coolidge and Everything But The Girl.  It was composed by Danny Whitten.  Danny is probably best remembered as the guitarist in Neil Young’s Crazy Horse and Danny’s guitar playing is probably […]
