Bruce Springsteen's Fame Predicted by A Psychic

 

Whoa. Just caught this little snipet on A&E. It sorta' like came out of nowhere, in between commercials! Thought it was kinda' cool and interesting. A psychic-fortuneteller by the name of: Madame Marie.

Just had to save it somewhere...

The New Era Radio Playlist on Spotify

 

This is a playlist created by Spotify, that seems to also include other artists besides 'The New Era'...

RadioAirplay.com: Artist Spotlight Billie B

 

I dig this track, and absolutely love this chick's voice. Also, in relation to this song, there is an interview with this very interesting Indie artist, who goes by the name of: BILLIE B at the Radio Airplay blog. In fact, I find that her voice and sound, seems to me to be surprisingly and quite strikingly similar to: The Green Children. At least, the sound on this particular track, anyway...

Paul McCartney: Live from NYC

 

Historical concert by Paul McCartney at Grand Central Station!

The show doesn't actually start however until about 40 minutes into the video, so I would of course recommend fast forwarding to that point to watch the beginning of the performance...

James Corden's 'Carpool Karoke' with Paul McCartney!

 

Take a trip down Memory Lane ('Penny Lane' for that matter!) with Jim Corden and Paul McCartney in a once in a lifetime Carpool Karaoke. What a trip! (Pun intended). Just awesome. Wow...

Soundbreaking Stories from the Cutting Edge of Recorded Music

The Beatles Christmas Album

Remembering Elvis Presley 40 years after his death

 

John Lennon once said: "if there hadn't been an Elvis, there wouldn't have been a Beatles!" Elvis sold more records then any entertainer in history. I have always loved playing Elvis songs, since I was a kid, and have always really dug his voice. Nobody ever sung and performed quite like he did. He was the coolest...

Gregg Allman, of The Allman Brothers Band, Dead at 69

 

O.K. Here we go again. Another music legend dies. (Another sign of the times?) The Allman Brothers Band were another big musical influence, from when I was a kid. Gregg Allman, was like the ultimate Blues/Rock singer (and a very good songwriter). And Duane Allman (the co-founder of the group) with Dicky Betts, were such an innovative and creative guitar playing team, surpassed by none. Not to even mention, the great bass playing of Berry Oakley. Together, (especially in those early days), they created such powerful rock n' roll music, like no other group before them or since. The band however, had its share of tragedy, starting with the death of legendary guitarist Duane Allman, (another early big influence on my own guitar playing), who was also one of the greatest slide (and studio) guitar players who ever lived. (You can also hear some of his fantastic guitar work with Eric Clapton, on the Derek and The Dominoes Layla album for example). It was even sometimes said by his fans, (including myself), that he could actually make the guitar cry! And you can definitely hear that on the band's early albums. After the tragic deaths of Duane Allman and Berry Oakley however, I think the band sadly, (despite the great success of the Brothers and Sisters album), sorta' like lost part of their soul, and were never quite the same, in my opinion anyway. Although, Gregg Allman and The Allman Brothers Band (including Dicky Betts for that matter), still remained living legends in their own right, and continued to have a very significant following, and much success...

Paul McCartney

 

O.K. I am dedicating this post to Paul McCartney. Wow, (even though I never met him, at this time in my life anyway), having grown-up with his music and all, he almost seems like an old friend. Especially, since he reminds me so much of an old friend who I did know: 'John Sullivan.' (God rest his soul). So much so, that it approaches being extraordinary. (Of course, I mention John in other places on this website as well). In fact, speaking about extraordinary, (and eerielly coincidental), that I just can't help mentioning here, is that I indeed, also had this absolutely surreal dream of John last night, that seemed so authentic, that I almost had to pinch myself when I woke-up! (Ever have a dream like that?)

So, it's actually kinda' funny, that I just happened to inadvertently come across this video of Paul McCartney just now on YouTube. As, I also know, that John would have probably gotten as big a kick out of it as I did. You see, The Beatles were such a big influence on us when we were kids, especially. Brings back so many memories. (So, I would like to dedicate this post to you too John). Enjoy...
