Covering Bowie

It’s been two months since David Bowie’s passing and as many of you know there have been many attempts to honor the man by covering his music. Some of been really stellar (Lorde at the BRIT awards), some have been ambitious but fallen flat (Lady Gaga at The Grammys) and some are sincere but questionable […]

The Return Of Tower Records

It’s not exactly the return of Tower Records but with the release of Colin Hank’s documentary “All Things Must Pass” this week, there is much reminiscing about what the record chain that shuttered its doors in 2006. It was a moment in time when you had to rely on the staff to educate you on […]

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 […]

Bitch, I’m Madonna…and that’s sad

Imagine throwing a party for yourself and everyone was half your age and the only way to get attention was to literally throw your body or crawl on your fours into everyone’s way. Everyone’s comparing Taylor Swift‘s cameo filled new video to Madonna‘s cameo filled video but while Taylor’s video has people her own age […]

1984: The Greatest Pop Culture Year

I’ll admit that I’m biased but as I look back 30 years it’s really hard to top 1984 in terms of Pop Culture influence. Television had the Thursday lineup of The Cosby Show, Family, Cheers, Night Court and Hill Street Blues.  It was the first year for Miami Vice.  It was also the year of this take […]

Celebrity Branded Perfumes

Yes, it’s that time of year when major releases come out and I’m not talking about music, I’m talking about celebrity branded perfumes.  Ever wondered what a Britney Spears scent might be like?  If that’s not your speed how about the smell of 20 year old men?  Yes, One Direction has a fragrance out too. […]

Madonna turns 30

I always thought Madonna’s debut album exploded out of the gate when it came out 30 years ago as she seemed to be everywhere all at once in 1983.  But I looked on the Billboard singles charts and even though the album came out on July 27, 1983, her first single did not chart until […]

Sexy (NSFW) Music Videos

That title alone should get me a lot of “hits” today. Both Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke have recently released videos that celebrate the female form (at least the 20 something well honed female form) and people are all a titter (pun intended) about whether this is appropriate. Of course nudity and music go hand […]

MTV Awards

I watched the MTV awards last week and like every other old person watching it was left wondering, “I don’t get it”.  It’s not like in the 80’s when it was relevant and spoke to me.  And who is this Kevin Hart guy hosting the show and why is he doing a Nicholas Fehn impersonation […]

Feuding with Elton John

I love Elton John.  I love his music, his philanthropy and his general ability to not hold back and call it like he sees it.  Basically it’s probably a good idea to stay on Elton’s good side. You’ve probably heard of his recent spat with Madonna.  Basically he didn’t like Madonna’s comments regarding Lady Gaga’s […]
