Sure I love Rudimental… live. on record they are a little self-evident, it doesn’t capture the stage dynamite. Still if this isn’t a great chart, it isn’t terrible either, back to back A albums and only Avicii a true dog with fleas.

ABC are seconds away from cancelling the atrocious The Muppets, a brain dead concept, the Muppets as a reality show for adults, they should’ve been thoroughly ashamed of. All we wanted was, well, the Muppet Show. Instead we got the most mean spirited program of all time. Shameful hit job on our collective memories.

Imagine – John Lennon – Nothing lasts forever except for this ode to nothingness, a dream of unity made poignant, if that is possible, by his murder at the age of 40, on this what would have been his 75th birthday – A+

What makes a man start fires The Minutemen asked. Well, what makes a man/person continue? I am NOT looking for pity and I could be waaaaay worse off than I am. It just at this juncture in time, my life feels like a perfect storm of loneliness, helplessness, of fighting the every day fight with both hands tied behind my back

If you have to listen to jingoists, rather Toby than Tim McGraw any day of this week. This is a fine old school country album, opening with the previously loved ode to Yanks great equalizer (alcohol) and ending with a one night stand, the rest of the album takes you on a trip there, including a wonderful excuse “Everytime I Drink I Fall In Love” and the terrific self-explanatory “Haggard, Hank And Her”, because, you know, the Jukebox knows no shame – ALBUM OF THE WEEK- A

Rollins is really excellent in the role of this dark character, flesh-eating vampire, suddenly turned superhero despite his beastie tendencies. He is extremely strong even invincible, and has taken more bullets in his body than he can count, but he plays Jack with a lot of ambiguities, in the sense that he is never the bad or the good guy, he coldly kills and eats humans but saves his daughter.

If you are in the business of selling blood pressure medicine, you probably discuss the inductees of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as often as possible. Just last week a complete stranger growled at me, while waiting in line to see The Zombies, “THEY SHOULD BE IN THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME!” I almost responded with “Are you kidding me?” just to see if the guy’s head would have exploded

The next two New York ballgames are at 830pm and the first two Mets playoff gaes are past 9om, begging an answer to the question: who is going to, you know, actually see them. 3 Years ago my Sunday’s were all sorted during the footballs season, Giants and Jets 1p to 7pm followed by 60 Minutes and topped off by the Simpsons. In 2015m I might as well go to the movies on a Sunday afternoon.

ever the bridesmaid Pandora have finally made a move and have made Andrew Dreskin $450 Million dollars richer, it seems to me to be the definition of a non event. Ticketfly have never come close to rivaling Ticketmaster and unless they get some major players to spend the night with em, they never will.

Morrissey is a complete head case, after throwing Harvest under the bus (for no good reason whatsoever), he has followed it up by such bizarre acts as claiming he won’t play in the UK again because he can’t get a record contract. Are you kidding me? Even if they wanted to sign him, everybody is too scared to go near him.

I could not believe it, the man was standing in front of me with his ex-wife Pegi, Stephen Stills was even there, and, when he saw I was taking pictures, he even offered to pose for me with his daughter, what a treat!

‘I don’t understand why there’s — You know what, I don’t care what a lot of people want. You know? I’d rather say, just don’t buy the f****** book, then, if I’ve offended someone. Don’t listen to my records. Cause I’m only telling you my story, I’m not here trying to advise anyone or tell anyone what to do or tell anyone what to think, and I’m not here as a spokesperson for anyone. I’m just telling my story. So the fact that I’ve been — you know, it’s almost like a lynch mob.’
