Goodbye 2016, Oh hell 2017

We lost a lot of great people last year. It’s been tough processing those who died before their time.

Sorry for not putting more out last year. Listen to a number of new albums and will talk about them later on, but right now I want to talk about Green Day.

I have watched them change and grow over the years and have been impressed with what they have said of late and what they yell out loud.

Here is a look back at Green Day and good luck to them in the future.

 

 

Looking forward to many more years of their music.


Goodbye to the Legends.

New Albums, Rob Thomas & Shinedown

GreatunknownThe Great Unknown, the latest from Rob Thomas. This album is very fast paced and gets you going. Loved the content and the lyrics and enjoyed where the songs took me mentally. Check it out.

Here are three samples from the album.

threattosurvivalShinedown never fails to please. This new album is just another in a long line of great albums for them. All full of visuals that make you think and feel every word of the lyrics.

Here is some examples from this album.

Songwriters and Spotify.

musicA number of things are out of wack in the music industry. One of those things has to do with songwriters. Aloe Blacc’s article in WIRED, check it out. As part of the discussion I understand that Taylor Swift removed herself from Spotify. I must say that is a bold move and I hope others follow here lead on this. If you don’t know about Spotify here is an article on WIRED! and one from the New Yorker.

Foo Fighters and other music.

foofightersIf you haven’t seen this amazing show on HBO your missing a piece of music history. The show brings the influences of what make our music today to the for front and each week they also create a song around the interviews and influences discussed that week. It represents where our musical roots have come and how over time they have connected together.

Check the website, Foo Fighters Sonic Highways.

Also I listened to the new album with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. It’s amazing. But here is a little taste of what the album is like.
