New Music Tuesday

Not so much a new music Tuesday as shout out to the work of Bob Ezrin who has a “resurrection” album and a band that needs a resurrection coming out today. Alice Cooper described Bob Ezrin as “our George Martin” as the sounds he helped create, defined the work of Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd and […]
