“Back in the day”, many of us bought records- wonderfully packaged vinyl records like all the effort and creativity that went into Small Faces’ “Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake”- not only because of the artists, but because of the producers involved, the arrangers, the session musicians, the photographers who made those album covers come alive, the [...]

Someone new to Hong Kong was asking if there were any local artists like Sia, Pink, Janelle Monae, or Jhene Aiko- pop artists but with that creative quirkiness that gives them an edge. We were having dinner, the video for “Pressure” was being shown on one of the music channels, and she wanted to go [...]

A group of us were discussing and dissecting and coming to grips with the saddest song we’ve heard. It was tough getting to the heart of the matter as what was sad then isn’t sad now. One either stays in a relationship or moves on with memories of what was then, and what is now, [...]

(Source: Wiki) Like George Harrison, Keith Richard was and is not the greatest guitarist in the world, but, like late Beatle, The Coolest Man In The World has given us some of the greatest guitar riffs in music.

Theirs was a strange relationship- and thank gawd for it. Whatever it was- yin and yang, call and response, anything you can do, I can do better, John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote some of the best songs of all time. They set the bar over forty years ago and which we are still trying [...]
