Nov 23 Blink 182’s Tom DeLonge Compares Streaming Music To Killing Elephants?
‘I tell people condoning streaming is like condoning the Chinese that are killing elephants for their tusks and carving ivory statues. It’s cool to put on your shelf but if you really think about what you’re doing it sucks’

Nov 23 Anne Husick’s “The Other” Side Reviewed
“The Other Side” has a horn solo to die for and keyboards in the center and a strong gravitational pull of a beat meanwhile Anne’s vocal is a real beauty

Nov 23 Dave Grohl On Arctic Monkeys And Smoking Pot While Watching The Kardashians
I’ll see a young band like them become that popular and think, ‘Please God, don’t let them self-destruct’. Because it happens, you know. But they seem like a band of brothers. Those four dudes seem like they’re doing really well and will be for a while.’

Nov 23 Sneak Peaks: New Album Releases week of November 24th, 2014
I saw her live many years ago, like that, and she has pipes on her like nobodies business though always hurt by weak material. This could be the one though the first single “I Deserve It” while good -yes, that is Missy elliott could be bette

Ah, yes, Thanksgivings week, where all the turkeys take the week off and we end with a whole lotta leftovers so what do we want for the guest of the week? I am going with the “drug addict pimps” One Direction who have one very good new album to their name released last week

Nov 23 Let’s Active: rock nyc Concert Picks week of November 24th, 2014
The setlist concentrates on the past 15 years to the exclusion of the golden age. Also interestingly enough, I couldn’t care less. In my opinion, Dylan has never had a fallow period but even so, this has been an incredible late period for the poet laureate on the 20th and 21st century.

Nov 23 10 Songs: Sunday, November 23rd, 2014
“Staten Island vigilante inspired by a quest for personal retribution and bent on saving his community from the grips of crooked authority and urban decay,”, that’s the upcoming yet another concept album, here the hook is the song, a great soulful one by Tre Williams – B

Nov 22 David Bronson At Rockwood Stage 2, Thursday, November 21st, 2014, Reviewed
David takes to the audience like he takes to people in the real world, he makes you at ease, ready to be part of his family and then he levels you with the intensity of his playing. It is as though he sees no reason why artistry must be self-important. At Rockwood he shared his stage so generously while remaining the focal point.

Nov 22 Hal Ketchum/Ronnie Fauss, Kessler Theater, Dallas Texas, Thursday, November 20th, 2014 Reviewed
The majority of Ketchum’s material exists in a bell curve where everything sounds good, it’s well crafted folk influenced country music and Ketchum still has a strong voice, but there’s no emotional glue to his work. The music wafts by you, very little sticks

Nov 22 Emel Malthouthi’s At Live@365, Thursday, November 20th, 2014 Reviewed
At Live@365, she took the band out for a spin and found them capable of sounding like everything from traditional Arabic music, to trip hop, to lo fi electronica, all held together by Ethel’s superb voice, a great instrument which sounds Arabic in Arabic and European in English and French

Nov 22 Ozzy Osbourne: ‘That Bono Pisses Me Off!’
I liked some of their earlier stuff, but to be perfectly honest, that Bono pisses me off. He’s made his name out of working with and talking about starving people in Africa. I don’t particularly like what he does. It’s phony

Nov 22 Lana Del Rey, Marilyn Manson, Eli Roth’s Lost Troubling Video
I should say first that Manson’s representative, Kathryn Frazier of Biz3, has declared that the Goth singer has nothing to do with the video and that ‘It must be a fan video splicing up old Manson video footage with someone else’s Lana Del Rey footage’

Nov 22 Hear, My Friends: Nikki Vee’s Five Songs
When I asked my Facebook friends, and my friends at 45 Revolutions Per Minute, to offer up their five favorite songs I figure I’ll get through em all eventually and first things first, here is Nikki Vee of Rhode Island’s song list. Not faves, not best, just what she is listening…

Nov 22 Pricing Kills Buying Music, Not Streaming
The battle over streaming is a battle over prices not distribution. I don’t care what anybody says, the average person does not want to spend $10 a month on a streaming service, it is too expensive, but if songs and albums were cheap enough they would get back in the habit of buying them.

Nov 22 Must See? Bob Seger At MSG December 19th, 2014
I’ve never seen Seger live and the only way for me to be sure is to take a look at him in concert. I would hope that if you read rock nyc it is for an informed opinion and the only way to have an informed opinion is to do the work, even if it is painful. So, yeah, I am gonna check him
