#RIP Gregg Allman

27 May

Man, hearing the news of Gregg Allman passing, this one stings way too much. On a personal note ABB is one of my favorite bands of all time. Never saw them enough but boy did I see Gregg Allman every chance I got. Of course you knew the health complications, the constant rumors, etc. but to many he was immortal and that musician who kept on fighting to play another show. But hey you know what, I bet Duane is the happiest up above right now, reunited with his Brother. Thanks for the memories, now it’s time to eat a peach and crank it up. We’ll raise a glass or 7 and listen to ABB wishing I was at that concert going on up above.

18 May

Bummer to wake up to the news that Chris Cornell has passed away. He was 52.

I should be posting a Soundgarden track but man, I always hoped for an Audioslave reunion. Wishful thinking….


Jamiroquai is back!!

27 Jan

While many things are not right currently around the world, one thing certainly is, music is the healing force and the universal language. We are in store for a massive year of new music and yours truly just got a bit giddy about this new one from Jamiroquai, yes, Jamiroquai with “Automaton.”

RIP Butch Trucks

25 Jan

Sad day to learn of the passing of Butch Trucks, original drummer of the legendary Allman Brothers Band. This one stings a bit more as ABB are one of my favorite bands and nothing will take away from that first time I got to see them play in 1999 at Mesa Amphitheater in Arizona.  The band like many of their songs (including my #1 song) stick with us on a daily basis. Legendary band, legendary songs, legends of music. You will be missed, Butch, rest easy.

30 Dec

Another year down, another year filled with great tunes. Below is a list (in alphabetical order) of 50 albums I dug in 2016. Normally I shy away from naming my top album because quite frankly I think there is too much great music that gets released throughout the year but this year is different because to me, A Tribe Called Quest didn’t just shock everyone by announcing and releasing its first album in 18 years, coupled with the loss earlier this year of Phife Dawg but it was the perfect album at the right time when “We The People” needed it. We Got It From Here…Thank You For Your Service is the album of the year and if you haven’t for some reason, dive into it, listen closely. We need more like ATCQ in 2017 and the years to come, there is a purpose to this album, find yours as I found mine. Peace + Love + Music. See you in 2017.
