DoYouHearTheMusic.com – 2016 Top Albums

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.

GLASTONBURY 2013 Lineup is here. WOW!

27 Mar

My jaw is still on the floor scouring this lineup and seeing the insane amount of talent performing at Glastonbury this June 28-30. I mean just read through this thing a bunch of times.  Sure The Rolling Stones, Mumford & Sons, Arctic Monkeys, Dizzee Rascal, Primal Scream, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Vampire Weekend, Elvis Costello, The Vaccines, Kenny Rogers, Ben Howard, Rita Ora, Rufus Wainwright, Jake Bugg, Haim, First Aid Kit all on the Pyramid Stage is enough to get most anyone to buy a ticket but just look at the Other Stage and the John Peel Stage.

Just take it all in.

Revisited: My First Concert

9 Aug

I was a mere eight years old in December 1989 and found myself at the Atlantic City Convention Center going to my first concert, The Rolling Stones. Of course at eight I couldn’t comprehend what a big deal The Rolling Stones were but I remember Mick Jagger running around like a maniac, gigantic blow-up legs inflating like the floats at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, we somehow wound up backstage and me asking my parents “what’s that smell?” Little did I know then that The Rolling Stones would become one of my favorite bands and that this would be the beginning of my love of music. I’ve been fortunate to have seen The Rolling Stones in three different decades (80s, 90s and 00s). I still have the concert t-shirt from that Steel Wheels tour and now it actually fits and is not used for pajamas.
