It’s his “Happy” in that it’s simple in its infectiousness, and has that added twist of having his millions of fans wonder, “But what does HE mean and who’s this song for and about? Selena Gomes?”  The track “What Do You Mean” has arrived at a time when Justin Bieber was looking perilously close to [...]

I was listening to a couple of tracks recorded by the Beatles today that are somewhat obscure- “I’ll Be Back”, “You Can’t Do That”, “Rain” with it’s brilliant false ending, and “I’m Looking Through You” as part of my ongoing “therapy” to stay true to music, and believe that there’s a light at the end [...]

There is just so much music out there, and yes, not all of it is that great. Then again, greatness is in the ear of Van Gogh and the psyche of Rasputin, but because of all the clutter, some real gems fall through the cracks. Guitarist Wil Cajucom is one of those rough diamonds found [...]

There’s a kind of hush and mush and beatz and paddling upstream all the time with Tidal, Spotify, and now Apple, but nowhere are their the Rock Guitar Gods who once strode across the world with the brontosaurus stomp of their They Ain’t Heavy They’re Our Brothers Bands with names like Led Zeppelin, Vanilla Fudge, [...]

(Souorce: App 01) This is one of the worst things about so-called “social media”- allowing in the haters- and also, more relevant and worrying, [...]

(Source: Mshcdn) Sometimes,like an old Kinks song, we are dedicated followers of fashion- and often led by our noses without really examining what we are purchasing.
