The Hunt For A New Guitar Is A Pain

After a long time not playing, I’ve picked up the guitar again. I grew up playing, played in high school, played in bands in college. My speed was Angus Young (AC/DC) and Eric Clapton speed. Used to love cranking out Cream’s Crossroads. Faster stuff I could mostly fake it. But, I got canned when I […]

Afternoon Rush

Amusing story. See if you can figure it out. I was at the Walgreen’s getting some batteries for my watches. The total for the purchase was $21.12. The cashier made a brief comment about that being an awesome number. It took a moment for me to respond, even though I immediately understood her reference. When […]

Question: Is Led Zeppelin A Heavy Metal Band?

A coworker, much younger than me, started this debate with me earlier today. It’s an interesting question. Is Zeppelin really a heavy metal group? Consider: seemingly half their songs feature acoustic guitar. Many are sedate, more plain rock. When you compare them to the other early metal groups, like Deep Purple, and the group considered […]

Rolling Stone’s Top 100 Guitarists

I know this list is a bit old, from back in 2011, but I ran across it while looking up something about the Yardbirds, and there is something on there that just drove me nuts (OK, nuttier). First off, let’s look at the Top 10 Jimi Hendrix Eric Clapton Jimmy Page Keith Richards Jeff Beck […]

Rush – Countdown

I love this song. Always gives me goosebumps during the section where the countdown gets to 10 and under. Happened to be flipping through my MP3 player and it came up. Those 1980’s clothes, though. Sheesh. And, you know what’s amazing? In 1981 we could launch a space shuttle. Now, Los Federales can’t even get […]

Who Says Rock Music Sucked In The 1970’s?

Your non-political/hotcoldwetdry thought of the day comes via a truly moronic DJ from some radio station I was listening to on IHeart Radio, who foolishly proclaimed that music in the 1970’s was horrible. Granted, there was disco, but that was at the end of the 70’s, and really only lasted a few years. So, for […]

Jon Lord, Co-founder Of Deep Purple, Dead At 71

Growing up, Deep Purple was one of the first real Heavy Metal groups I ever listened to and bought albums (along with Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath). Reports are that Jon Lord, co-founder and keyboardist, has passed away from pancreatic cancer at age 71. Deep Purple was truly revolutionary in creating that British metal sound, […]
