Re: “Scorpions Bring Their Arena Rock-Worthy Stage Production to Jacobs Pavilion at Nautica

Classic rock bands are like champion boxers -- retirement will abruptly end through a promoter's beefy checkbook.

Re: “The Rock Hall Turns 20 This Year, But the Real Fun Comes in the Next 20 Years

It's sad that today's supposed "musical genius" (Kanye West) doesn't actually play any musical instruments at all. It really speaks to the demise of popular music as a whole. No one plays instruments anymore. We have no choice but to look forward to a "Rock Hall" full of microphones and turntables. Awesome.

(And I'm not some old dude bitching about the younger generation. I'm in my 20's, and I feel sorry for my generation.)

Re: “Singer Peter Wolf Enjoys Revisiting His J. Geils Band Past

What a long, strange trip......when Peter Wolf initially left the group, the acrimony spilled out in the 1984 album - "You're Gettin' Even While I'm Gettin' Odd". Sporadic reunions from 1999 to 2011 went smooth, until John Geils filed a lawsuit before a brief 2012 tour alleging that band members conspired to keep him out of the lineup and had hijacked the trademarked name. "Piss on the Wall", indeed.

Re: “O.A.R. Revisits its Early Days with 'The Rockville LP'

Worked in Rockvillle for 7 years. Traffic everywhere. Nowhere to just cruise with the windows down and blast tunes, unless it is 3am (and I wanna go to be-e-ed).

Re: “ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Blackberry Smoke’s Charlie Starr Talk About Their Upcoming Grooves and Gravy Tour

Jimi Hendrix was as impressed with the potential of Billy Gibbons as Pete Townshend was with Joe Walsh.....when the rock superstars were also super scouts during the midnight hour in boozy bars, smoke-filled clubs and hopin' after-hour joints.

Re: “Singer-Songwriter Graham Nash to Dig into his Back Catalog for Hard Rock Live Concert

There are artists who have an intrinsic joy of connecting with fans through informative media interviews, conducting meet-and-greets that go well beyond the perfunctory and strive to make the concert experience something very special ---- Graham Nash is at the top of this small list.

Re: “Rock Hall Plans to Incorporate More Tech to Appeal to Younger Audiences

The Pro Football Hall of Fame has done an excellent job in keeping pace with technology -- which starts with the website -- while not detracting from the up-close-and-personal aspect of "old time" exhibits.

Re: “Whitesnake Guitarist Enjoys Revisiting Band's Deep (Purple) Catalog

When Ritchie Blackmore left Deep Purple in June 1975, David Coverdale suggested that the band enlist guitarist Tommy Bolin -- instead of breaking up. But in one of those wild twists and turns in rock-n-roll, Coverdale's attempt to keep the group together finally fell apart about one year later.

Re: “After 40 Years, New Wave Pioneers Blondie Continue to Look Forward

There is a wild story from back in the day that features Blondie, Iggy Pop and his band, a couple of vehicles and a trip that started in downtown Cleveland and ended up near the Richfield Coliseum due to some lousy a high-speed adventure that could be chronicled in a remix of the Velvet Underground's "I'm Waiting for the Man".

Re: “He Can't Stop: Bodeans' Frontman Talks About the Band's 30-Year History

"Moron ?" come on, I guess writing, arranging, and playing most of the instruments on the records isn't enough for you. And he didn't get rid of Sam, that was Sam's choice. True without the powerful blend of their two voices, you don't have The BoDeans, but I think Kurt has earned the right to use the name.and a Kurt Neumann solo gig is better than most.

Re: “The Artists Still Waiting for Their Deserved Rock Hall Nods

Jethro Tull, Fairport Convention, Richard Thompson, Steeleye Span and King Crimson. Particularly Jethro Tull. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a remarkable institution but Tull should have been in 20 years ago.
