August 6th should have been his 44th anniversary but it was not the occasion for tears and sadness, on the contrary it was a fun fun night, with the right amount of laugh, smile, and moving moments.
Smith communes very well with troubled souls; his is the music for the emotionally disenfranchised as surely as Strummer is the music for the politically disenfranchise -tickets go on sale Monday at noon
Popdoses Ken Shane wrote “Now that George is gone, Vince has the most beautiful voice in country music” and if you don’t think that’s high praise may I remind you George Strait is still alive
Teenagers are to rock and roll. what the story of Jesus is to the Gospels, everything else is to rock and roll what Parables are to the Gospel. They illuminate but they aren’t the point.
It cheapens the legacy, in my eyes. It really is nothing more than a money making tour scheme. I cant quite understand how legends such as May can even allow such a thing. After working so hard for so long, what’s the point?
The real problem is the single is actually really good. Yup- better than The Black Keys so here’s another lesson- don’t let legends get a hold of you material, you’’ just end up looking weak.
It’s always a little threatening to take on material I consider perfect as is. The only rule being, don’t fuck it up’. And they didn’t fuck it up at all.
By one of those strange coincidences that occur in life, I saw the two sons play live, one day after the other. Arlo Guthrie on Sunday at Summerstage, Frank Sinatra Jr. on Monday at the Town Hall . Both of these guys are pretty good in their own right

When speaking to most ‘hard’ rock bands they will offer up props to KISS in some way or another. A great example of KISS spawn is The Black Veil Brides- there is no doubt that KISS took music to new levels but really now, when can all this end?
To cross genders and brain space is a tribute to his brilliance. A rather awkward vocal and innovative approach to his accompaniment can never be replicated. “Freak Out.. Far Out…In Out”
Most of her songs were about love or sex and this one time she tried to venture a little deeper she basically fell off a cliff. What was she ainging about anyway?
Joey Ramone was many things to many people and most I have encountered found him not to be the most friendly guy, thus adding to his rock and roll swagger. I thought he was a great guy but my eyes were clouded with idol worship.
Brothers tend to sing rwell together, and the Australian Gibbs brothers, are a mirror image of L.A.’s Wilson brothers, with Barry playing brian to the other twos Dennis and carl. And not exactly either. Maybe it is more of a Beatles story: Robin playing Paul to Barry’s John. Barry was the best looking, anyway way. Robin has always been a nerd in hunk clothing. Buoffont hairdo and sequined jumpsuit..
I was 7 years old and sitting with my mother on the seawall ( we were watching them film the movie because my mother was a huge Frank Sinatra fan.
