By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk There were the Beatles and there were the Stones and then there was George Harrison and there was Brian Jones. If being completely honest with myself, it was seeing George in “A Day’s Night”, especially in that opening scene when they’re running away from the fans and trips, and then playing [...]

By Hans Ebert Again, you need to go back to where you came from to gather your bearings and remember what you either might have forgotten or never appreciated at the time. Listening to the back catalogue of Mr Chuck Berry, I only now truly understand what a “backbeat and you can’t lose it” really [...]

By Hans Ebert Much has been said about the power of music, but one has to wonder if this is truly understood or celebrated, and just how much healing power it has. Some of us have tried climbing those 12 Steps, but, for whatever reason, too often, that Higher Power is either not at home [...]
