There are some people who love to tell us “he / she ain’t Rock and Roll”…… but for us, there are just some people who were such a part of it even though they rarely sang a song. Today we are remembering one of them, George Carlin who left us 10 years ago today on […]

He’s one of our favorite people on this planet. He has one of the greatest voices in the history of Rock and Roll. He is Howard Kaylan and today he is celebrating his 71st birthday. Howard for those of you not familiar with him, was the lead singer for The Turtles, (Happy Together, She’d Rather […]

We very rarely use the word genius. There are very few people who warrant it even being used in the same sentence as their name. Even more rare is when just about everybody agrees that the word is fitting for someone. The Beach Boys founding member Brian Wilson has been called a musical genius by […]

There are some voices that many people can hear briefly and know who it is. One of those voices belonged to Brad Delp, the lead singer for the band Boston. If Brad was still with us, he would have turned 67 years old today. We lost him on March 9, 2007 when he took his […]

It was on this day, back in the summer of 1979, that many people first heard the words (kinda) “M-m-m-my Sharona.” It was on that day that The Knack released their debut LP “Get The Knack.” The LP got an incredible amount of airplay and was a favorite in many clubs that were starting to […]

By the late 50’s, Rock and Roll was really taking hold in popular music. Elvis, Chuck, Buddy etc. But there was still room for a novelty song every now and then. On June 9th, 1958, Sheb Wooley’s “The Purple People Eater” became the #1 in the US. We were all much younger then so we […]

There are very few people who can be defined as a true Superstar. One of those who can be, Prince Rogers Nelson, was born 60 years ago today. He was best known by just his first name, Prince. He left us way to soon on April 21st of 2016. If you were to only hear […]

36 people were taken to the hospital during a Grateful Dead concert at the Winterland Auditorium in San Francisco, CA on May 30, 1971. Turns out some one spiked the apple drink that was available with LSD. There are some sources that say or believe that the spiking was done by the band. These fine […]

There are very few people in the history of Rock and Roll who have had an impact on the music and the performance equal to that of The Who’s Pete Townshend. Today, Pete has 73 candles on his birthday cake. There are some of our friends who think we are taking the easy road when […]

There are very few people who have changed music, or at least part of it. Joey Ramone was one of those people. It has been 17 years since Joey left us. Joey died of lymphoma at New York-Presbyterian Hospital on April 15, 2001, a month before he would have turned 50, seven years after he […]
