    Lately, I have been discovering some old classics such as R Kelly’s 'Ignition' and Natalie Imbruglia’s 'Torn'. However, instead of listening to the original mixes, I have been enjoying some emerging bands and finding that I prefer some of them to the originals! All of the songs I am about to review are on Spotify and you can listen to them on there free of charge.

    The convention couldn’t sound less rock-and-roll — the National Association of Music Merchants Show. But when the doors open at the Anaheim Convention Center, people stream in to scour rows of Fenders, Les Pauls and the oddball, custom-built creations such as the 5-foot-4-inch mermaid guitar crafted of 15 kinds of wood. Standing in the center of the biggest, six-string candy store in the United States, you can almost believe all is well within the guitar world. Except if, like George Gruhn, you know better. The 71-year-old Nashville dealer has sold guitars to Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Paul McCartney and Taylor...
  • Glastonbury revellers get the party started VERY early by inhaling balloons of laughing gas [tr]

    here were a few sore heads this morning at the Glastonbury Festival after revellers continued the party well into the night, following scorching temperatures on the first day of the famous event. And while some might opt for a bacon sandwich after a big night, some spirited individual chose a rather more edgy breakfast of hippy crack. Revellers could be seen inhaling balloons filled with laughing gas just as the sun was making a tentative first appearance.

    The British business at the forefront of the global recommence revolution, musicMagpie, have studied the most popular platforms for streaming or purchasing music, such as Spotify, Google Music, Tidal and iTunes. The research looks at how much a music artist makes when a single, album or vinyl record is purchased. An extraordinary example is this, Beyoncé would need us to listen to one of her songs 12.5 million times on Apple Music in order to meet the UK's yearly minimum wage of £14,625.
  • Moby Music Video Blows Up Cartoon Nazi Donald Trump

    Brietbart ^ | June 2017 | Jerome Hudson
    The music video for electronic music-maker Moby’s latest song depicts President Donald Trump as a Nazi robot who is eventually blown up by a band of rebellious citizens. The three-minute video for Moby’s song “In This Cold Place” sees an evil capitalist Trump, who transforms into a flying swastika money symbol, in a battle to take over a slowly decaying world. Visuals in the trippy video include a border wall, President Richard Nixon with a Pinocchio-style nose that grows and wraps around the world, and several popular cartoon characters, including He-Man, the Care Bears, Mickey Mouse, and Super Mario. “As...

This is because I have been adding to it over the years as my research has continued. I am by avocation a church musician. Before my ordination, I was a Choir director and an organist.

  • Worth(?) $30 Million Himself, Rock Guitarist Tom Morello Attacks the 'One Percent

    06/17/2017 6:42:17 AM PDT · by rktman · 49 replies ^ | 6/16/2017 | Madeleine Post
    Tom Morello constructed a band dedicated to bashing capitalism, among other supposed “injustices.” But beware, Morello fans: this guitarist is, unsurprisingly, worth millions. Tom Morello, lead guitarist of Prophets of Rage and Rage Against the Machine, takes to Twitter constantly – though not necessarily to discuss his music (given the band’s taste for screaming and ear-ringing metallica, maybe this isn’t such a bad thing). In light of his loud adherence to the Resistance, Morello has an unquenchable penchant for the political.

    Anita Pallenberg, an actress and model who starred opposite Mick Jagger in Performance and had three children with his Rolling Stones bandmate, Keith Richards, has died. She was 73. Pallenberg died Tuesday, her friend Stella Schnabel, the daughter of painter and filmmaker Julian Schnabel, announced on Instagram. No cause of death was revealed. In 1968, Pallenberg appeared as The Black Queen in Barbarella, starring Jane Fonda, and as Nurse Bollock with Marlon Brando and Richard Burton in Candy. She also filmed Performance that year, but Warner Bros. did not release the violent, hallucinogenic film until 1970.

    The River ^ | 2-7-2017 | Webmaster
    When Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj teamed up, their resulting single Side to Side shot right to the top of the charts! And it's easy to see why; the song is catchy, it's sexy, and it's got an energetic, bouncing, funky beat that will have you bobbing along with the music even if you have no idea what the song is about. Plus, that VMA performance with the exercise bicycles was pretty neat. Speaking of "what the song is talking about," it's not always easy to tell what's really going on in lyrics like these. The girls use their fair...

Turkmenistan is included in the category of countries in which “there are no or weak laws against domestic violence, rape, and marital rape, and these laws are not generally enforced.” What’s more is that according to the Turkmenistan 2012 Human Rights Report by the U.S. Department of State, “The three most important human rights problems were arbitrary arrest; torture; and disregard for civil liberties, including restrictions on freedoms of speech, press, assembly, and movement.” The President of this country is...

    For many, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is The Beatles at their best. When it came out on 1 June 1967 it was unlike anything that had come before it. Experimental and immersive, it pushed musical boundaries. Half a century on, it remains one of the most influential albums of all time, as Beatles author Steve Turner explains: "It was artistically aspirational at a time when most of their contemporaries were still playing beat music of some kind or another. "They had these great ambitions. Paul was starting to go to the theatre, George was listening to Indian music,...
