Kurt Cobain would have been 50 today

I’m sure there will be many thought pieces on what should have been Kurt’s 50th Birthday.  We can all speculate on what might have been.  Nirvana might have recorded a 3rd album before breaking up.  Kurt would probably be divorced. Kurt would probably have gotten into a Twitter war with Kanye. Here’s what we do […]

New Music Friday: Ryan Adams

Let’s call this new album from Ryan Adams the Post-Valentine’s Day record. What can you say about Ryan Adams? He is pretty consistent with his album output. Prisoner is his 16th in 18 years as a solo artist.  Prisoner is his breakup album.  His 6 year marriage to Mandy Moore officially ended last year so one […]

Happy Birthday Matt Groening

Matt has created the longest running TV series ever (in case you’re not paying attention, it’s The Simpsons) and yet I still don’t know how to correctly say his last name….I’m pretty sure it’s Gray-ning. Since, this is a music blo,g I present to you my 5 favorite musician cameos from the show. Linda Ronstadt […]
