Comparing The Beatles and The Stones is like comparing apples and oranges, but if I’m going to do it, gun to my head– I’m taking Stones all day, and it’s not even very close. If my criticism of The Beatles seems harsh, remember, I’m just being honest. At the end of the day, I’m just doing and saying what others are afraid to. Anyway, who’s your favorite?
Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with Matthew Bradford of the NoSleep Podcast. Among other things, we touch on what he’s been up to during the lockdown, his origins as a voice actor, his time with the NoSleep Podcast, and what he’s looking forward to the most once COVID-19 breaks.
In Unmasked, and Creatures of the Night, we find the band spiraling out of control, and yet still managing to craft what I would deem quintessential albums. They were unpopular then, and they’re underrated, but at least in some ways, retroactively appreciated now. These two records are very different, yet forever linked, and both are tremendously important to the band’s development.
There is no denying that “Space Ace” has a special swagger about him…that certain something that simply makes him special. Ace is both unable and uninterested in reading music and is generally averse to playing by anybody else’s rules but his own. Still, Ace has managed to forge a fifty-year career in music and has seen the wildly unheard-of success that street-walking guys from the Bronx don’t often see.
I had the pleasure of speaking with the CEO of SlyVinyl, Eric Hughes. Among other things, we touch on what he’s been up to during the lockdown, the origins of SlyVinyl, his opinions on where RSD stands today, and what he’s looking forward to the most once COVID-19 breaks.
Punk is alive and well people. If you’re looking within the mainstream, you’re looking in the wrong place. Teenage Bottlerocket has been keeping the spirit of old-school Punk music alive and well for twenty years.
Eric’s inspiring story of hard work and determination is cemented in Rock ‘N’ Roll lore. After spending the 1970s moving from band to band, and rounding out the decade repairing stoves with his father, in 1980, Eric Carr was granted the chance of a lifetime in the form of an audition with The Hottest Band In The World– KISS.
The late 60s were a tumultuous time in history, but they were also a fantastic time for music. One genre in particular really stands out from this era, and that is Psych Rock. Iron Butterfly was one of the leaders of this genre which would come to define an era of music.
Today I am highlighting the blue-collar workers of some of your favorite bands. These stalwart workhorses of Rock music have created many of the most memorable songs in history. Their impact may be low ley on the surface, but their legacy is larger than life.
Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with veteran musician and artist, Bernardo Lanzetti. Among other things, we touch on what he’s been up to during the lockdown, his newest music, his opinion of the music scene today, and what he’s looking forward to most post-COVID.
