  • Well, hell it’s been a damned rocky road to get to 2014. I feel like last year I was trucking along full speed and killing it with unbreakable momentum. The fact that I haven’t posted in over a month proves that I hit a roadblock. I apologize for ducking out for an unplanned hiatus. Hey, I’m only one guy–I don’t have a staff and only occasionally do I have other contributors, mostly this is a one man show. A show I intend to get back on the road. The main problem for me began in October when there was a...

The Dead Eyes Of London do exactly that in 3:03 with a total of 33 words...

  • Clearly, I write about a lot of music–a lot of local music of all genres, categories and styles, but when it comes down to it, my soul completely belongs to rock’n'roll. There is no way around it, while I enjoy so many varieties of music, so many genres and sub-genres, what really moves me more than anything else is pure rock’n'roll. This is, in a sense, my religion. I make no bones about it and I’m constantly seeking it out, constantly looking throughout the local scene for authentic rock. It seems that while there is a lot of great music...
