In This Moment – Blood

Do you have a musical weakness?  Is there something that you are always drawn to?   Rock chicks are my weakness.  I freaking love rock chicks.  There is something incredibly attractive about a girl that can sing and scream over heavy guitars.  I can’t express in words the reasoning; it must be some sort of…

Michael Bolton

Have you ever been in a record store and said “Hey look!  Michael Bolton!”? Probably not.  But, you should.   First, look at this cover art.   How do you not want to have this in your collection??  Look at that hair!  I would kill for that hair.  And those eyes!!  I’m worried that my…

The Highwaymen – Live at Nassau Coliseum 

Do you ever wish that you could go back in time and slap your younger self?   I want to go back and grab a hold of the younger me and give myself a good shake and a slap in the face for not respecting the music that was being made at the time.  Live…

The Doors – L.A. Woman

What is the best dollar that you’ve ever spent?  This album is it for me.  I found a copy of L.A. Woman at an estate sale for a single dollar.  Deal of the century. The fact that this is the first album from The Doors that I’ve added to my vinyl collection makes me sad.  I…

Hellyeah – Unden!able

Stereotypes are born in truth, but stereotypes are hurtful.  Think for a moment about what the typical fan at a metal show looks like. Black t-shirt?  Leather or denim vest with patches and chains?  Black jeans even when it is 97°?  This describes most metal fans and it is the reason I get strange looks…

AC/DC – Flick Of The Switch 

You know that handful of albums that you flip past in every record store as you look for vinyl to add to your collection?  I will guarantee that at least one of them is an AC/DC record. We don’t flip past them because there is something wrong with the albums or the music.  In fact,…

Sunflower Dead

When was the last time you were surprised by a band?  I am not talking about Oh, they’re pretty good; I am talking about Wait just a damn minute.  Is that what I think it is?? I was throughly surprised by Sunflower Dead when I saw them as an opening band a couple weeks ago…

Black Pistol Fire – Don’t Wake The Riot

How many bands do you love while none of your friends know who they are?  My list is growing and growing.  However, I always feel like an asshole when someone asks What band did you see last night? and my answer is Oh, you’ve probably never heard of them.  But, it’s true; they probably haven’t.  …

Bandits – Kill Tonight/Wheels

Are you the type of person who gets to a live show early so you can secure your spot up close and get a good look at the opening band or are you the person who gets to the show late because you are only interested in the headlining band?  I am an opening band…

Screaming Females – Ugly

Do you remember being an angry teenager?  Maybe you painted your fingernails black or kept your hair in your face or wore Doc Martens in the summer; whatever you were doing it was because the man was keeping you down and your parents didn’t understand you, right?  For some of us it was high school,…

Jack White – Acoustic In Idaho

Do you ever wonder if you are just a little too obsessed with an artist?  Are you like me and you tell that little voice in your head to shut the hell up so you can listen to the music? I just might have an unhealthy obsession with Jack White’s music, but I am not…
