Hunky Dory

Usually I give a mention to the new music that’s coming out but this is the week I’ve been looking back to the Bowie catalog.  The one I keep coming back to is Hunky Dory.  In the year that gave us, Joni Mitchell’s Blue, Carole King’s “Tapestry” James Taylor’s “Mud Slide Slim and the Blue […]

Serious Moonlight

I’m still on my Bowie kick.  My first show with no parents was September 9, 1983 at Anaheim Stadium.   Basically it was pretty much the perfect day.  David Bowie with The Go-Go’s and Madness opening up.   After witnessing this show, I had a whole new perspective on pop culture.  Fashion was cool.  Dancing […]

David Bowie 2 for 2uesday

I’m still trying to get my head around the fact that David Bowie is not among us anymore.  I was listening to his brilliant new album Blackstar during my jog this past weekend.  I found the new album, inspiring, motivational and driving.  It is perfect to get me to push myself in preparation for my 1/2 […]

Running scenes in movies

I’m running a 1/2 marathon (why do a full marathon when 1/2 is available) next week.  So I’m looking for inspirational music.  What better place then the movies?  Here are ten scenes that I’m going to watch before the big race. “If I was going anywhere, I was running” music by Alan Silvestri “Chariots Of […]

Lemmy Memorial

This Saturday January 9 at Forest Lawn, the memorial for Lemmy Kilmister will be held.  I am expecting it to be the most kick ass memorial you’ll ever witness.   You won’t be able to get in, but you will be able to watch it on YouTube. As the site says… So wherever you are, […]

Coachella lineup 2016

This is not your father’s Coachella.  They finally did it and kicked out the 40+ age group that attends these shows.   I looked on Facebook and my entire feed (i.e. old people)  was utter disappointment.  And honestly this is the way it should be.  I was in Starbucks today and the high school kids were […]

While everyone is talking about Guns ‘n’ Roses and their inevitable reunion (and eventual disappointment), The Cult  keeps churning out classic rock gems every few years.  2016 marks their first new album in four years and they sound as strong as ever with their first single “Hinterland” Every wonder what it would sound like if the […]

2016 Predictions

Let’s stare into the crystal ball and see what might happen in 2016. Coachella – It’s pretty much confirmed that Guns ‘n Roses and LCD Soundsystem will headline.  I’m going to guess that Axl will go on late, they’ll cut the cord and he’ll throw a tantrum and refuse to play the second weekend. Meanwhile, […]
