By Hans Ebert It’s definitely been because of the erratic behaviour of President Donald Trump, but these last few weeks, a keyword playing over and over again in my head is the one called Tolerance. Trump- it’s almost impossible to call him President- is intolerant and intolerable- a 70-year-old manchild, who seems to be going [...]

By Hans Ebert A friend in music was trying to find “solace” in the recent cases of Alanis Morrisette being duped by her former manager for millions, and Sir Paul fighting with ATV/Sony Publishing to buy back his and John Lennon’s early catalogue of songs.

I hear you’re paranoid and depressed? Here’s some news for you, bro: Get in the queue. Every day, millions around the world suffer from depression. And in silence. They don’t have millions of Twitter trolls drumming up the sympathy vote for them. They go through that long dark tunnel alone and hope to the god [...]

By Hans Ebert There’s no other way to put it: We’re all going to die, some before others. And as we face mortality, we start making changes and finalising plans- the obituary, the funeral, how and where you want to lay your weary head, who you want to be beside you, what you want to [...]

It clears the head, let’s in some much-needed fresh air to make the fog and amphetamines disappear. forces one to think, re-think and re-learn many things that have been swept under the sneakers, and kinda say, F*ck what everyone else thinks, cos opinions are [...]

“I like it because she’s being herself.” “She” is Rihanna. and my friend Jenny is trying to answer my question as to why the video for “FourFive Seconds” has so many drawn to it, including myself. In my book of greatest music videos of a Feel Good nature, it’s right up there with the amazing [...]

  It’s been swift in more ways than one- the rise and rise of fabulously popular and successful singer-songwriter Taylor Swift, 25, who’s gone from being almost a serial “dumpee” whose queue of short-lived romances have led to a series of Big Hurt songs, to now being hailed as something like the Joan Of Arc [...]

DAVE STEWART LAUNCHING ‘THE VOICE FOR SONGWRITERS’ AS HE SIGNS TO BMG Some read the news above about Dave Stewart and tweeted that The Hardest Working Man In Showbiz was back. But he’s never left the building with Elvis, or given up keeping on. Possibly the only thing he hasn’t done is collaborate with Kanye [...]
