Favorite Halloween Theme Music Videos that are not Thriller

No question, we all love Thriller but sometimes we need slightly different thrills to add to our Halloween enjoyment.  Here are a dozen videos that make my body start to shiver. Because no no mere mortal can resist; the evil of the thriller. Nine Inch Nails “Closer” Rotating hanging bodies, pig heads on a stick. Creepy factor […]

Falling on stage

Revenue may be up for the concert business this year, but artists seem to be falling down, tripping or flat out being ripped from the stage more than ever this year.  The unpredictability of live events is part of the fun of going to shows.  No matter how rehearsed and prepared the artists are for […]

Record Store Day 2015

Record Store Day is here. While I still love the idea of spreading the love and joy of record shopping, it definitely is a double-edged sword as people line up around the block of their local record store to pay high retail prices for what may or may not be collector’s items.  That said, there […]

Musical Legacies

It started in December last year when Adam Sandler’s Hanukkah song came on and I came to realize that the names Adam mentions in the song are irrelevant to my kids. David Lee Roth James Caan Kirk Douglas late Dinah Shore-ah Bowser from Sha Na Na Arthur Fonzerelli Paul Newman Goldie Hawn Captain Kirk Mr.Spock […]

New Music Tuesday

I like Dave Grohl.  I imagine he’d be a great guy to hang out with and swap stories over beers.  His eight-part documentary Sonic Highways is fascinating for both the music fanatic and the casual fan.  He really hits all the right notes paying homage to the punk rock/country heroes of years gone by.  The […]

Grammy Nominations

The Grammy awards have been reduced from 109 to 78 categories wisely removing the distinction between male and female performances. Of course that doesn’t mean there are still some eyebrow raising moments. The most pleasant surprise is the recognition of Bon Iver.  The song “Holocene” was nominated for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year. […]

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’ […]
