New Music Friday

It only took The Rolling Stones 50+ years before they finally decided to make their blues record.  They make this sound so effortless like slipping on some comfortable shoes.  So actually they no longer have the angst to make a brilliant blues record but it’s still nice to hear the boys get back to their […]

Get Out

This is the week of Desert Trip.  If you’re tempted to go, you’re in luck as tickets on StubHub are below cost. I’m almost tempted to go myself.  Here’s who is playing and what to expect. Friday Bob Dylan Set time 6:40PM What to expect: Probably disappointment.  Veteran Dylan followers know what to expect but first […]

Sticky Fingers

The great thing about reissues is it’s a chance to revisit works that might have been forgotten by all except those that bought the Rolling Stones album way back in April 1971. Here are ten fun facts about The Rolling Stones “Sticky Fingers” making its well earned remastered appearance 44 years later. 1) It’s the first release on the […]

The Stones Keep Rolling

I’m far from being the first to say this but The Rolling Stones music in a live setting is still energized and vital.  Earlier this month I got to see Brian Wilson perform and while there is absolutely no denying how amazing the music Brian created 40+ years ago is yet there is also no […]

Bands with similar sounding names

Opening act for Benjamin Booker last week at The Roxy was a band playing Coachella this year from Leeds called Eagulls.  They really knocked me out.  Lead singer George Mitchell sounds like Robert Smith and the band reminds me of the shoe gazer bands of the 90s like the recently reunited Ride.  But the band’s […]

New Music Tuesday

New Music. It’s great (sometimes) and I’m very happy (sometimes) that there is an amazing assortment of new sounds to hear on a consistent basis.  But sometimes it’s so nice to hear the tried and true.  You can go back to an old album and just sigh and scream “YES!’ This is what I want […]

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 […]

Crossfire Hurricane

I got the chance to watch the latest Rolling Stones HBO documentary “Crossfire Hurricane” and what I learned is that it’s impossible to tell the 50 year story of the band in two hours.  In fact, the documentary practically wraps up the story in 1978 when Keith Richards is sentenced to only probation for heroin […]

New Music Tuesday

A wise man once rapped “Don’t call this a comeback, I’ve been here for years!” Nevertheless, these three artists will have to deal with the label until proven otherwise. I’m not sure if you have heard, but the Rolling Stones are still a viable band.   Well I guess you can call two new songs viable.  They […]

New Music Tuesday

While the nation focuses on the election, Aerosmith decided that this would be the day to release their first album of original material in eleven years.  Everyone else has pretty much decided to leave this date alone.  As with the election, the public will decide if this was a good idea. Since there isn’t any […]
