Rock Hall 2016 Inductees: Snap Judgement

Congrats to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for not taking their name literally and inducting innovators like Joan Baez and 2Pac. Congrats to Pearl Jam.  Excluding Radiohead, whom I don’t think is a traditional rock band, this may be the last guitar-based band from the 90s invited to the Hall.  You think Weezer might […]

Temple Of The Dog

Need to escape to a time when there was a Clinton in the White House?  Fear not, as the reunited Temple Of The Dog takes over The Fabulous Forum on Monday.  In all fairness, the lone Temple Of The Dog album came out in 1991 when George H.W. Bush was still in office but you […]

Innovators/Imitators 2017 Rock Hall Nominees

The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees were released so that means I’m disappointed knowing The Cure, The Smiths, Nine Inch Nails and Devo are not even invited to the dance. That said, it’s time for the 6th Annual Let’s Not Get Carried Away Innovators vs. Imitators to determine who deserves to get […]

Artist cameos in Films

I stole this idea straight up from Flavorwire (click on the link and watch Peter Sellers in The Road To Hong Kong. You won’t regret it).  The idea is that some of the best moments in film are when an unexpected appearance from someone with a familiar face suddenly shows up on screen (think Alfred Hitchcock).  With […]

Favorite Songs 2013

As much as I love albums I do love radio and the amazing ability for certain songs to be played over and over and yet still get enjoyment out of them with each listen.  So here are the 20 songs that I played ad infinitum in 2013.  As always the songs are in no particular […]

Setlist.fm

For someone that can’t go to every concert, I’m thankful for setlist.fm. I really don’t know much about the site.  It seems to be run like Wikipedia letting the fans update the site.  It has over 980,000 concert setlists of more than 543,00 artists including tour and song statistics, personal statistics, videos and much more.   And […]

Classic Rock vs. New Songs

Paul McCartney and Pearl Jam are all putting out new music this week.  Macca and PJ are both getting positive reviews.   They’ll play a few of these songs on their current tours but then then they’ll probably be left to die a slow death.  Soon to be forgotten.    Want proof? Paul McCartney’s last album Memory Almost Full […]

Music Collaboration

John Fogerty just released an album “Wrote a Song For Everyone” comprised solely of past Creedence Clearwater Revival and solo songs.  The hook is he’s collaborating with a different artist for each song of that artist’s choosing.  i.e. Foo Fighters performing “Fortunate Son” and  Dawes performing “Someday Never Comes” I’m not sure if it means anything […]

Singles is 20

Last weekend the family sat down to watch “Singles” and coincidently it turned out to be exactly twenty years to the month of when this movie was released.  The movie holds up fairly well but what is still shocking to me is how Cameron captured this lightning in a bottle moment in time when the […]

Tribute Albums

I wish all tribute albums were as brilliant as the songs they covered but that’s rarely the case and as the saying goes, “if wishes and buts were clusters of nuts we’d all have a bowl of granola“. Just Tell Me That You Want Me – Tribute To Fleetwood Mac comes out Tuesday and while the […]
