https://youtu.be/ClQcUyhoxTg BOC is one of my favorite bands. I wouldn't know where to begin to tell of the impact and influence this music has had on my life, and my writing. But, I've got to be careful not to give away all my secrets. TS
https://youtu.be/GEkGu3UWwG4 One of the first albums I ever owned that was mine. It was a birthday gift from a friend in grade school. Someone else gave me a copy of Andy Gibb's "Flowing Rivers" that same year. It's great music. The Bee Gees were masterful song writers.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kijpcUv-b8M The other day someone shared this great quote from Freddie Mercury that really spoke to me. I've found several versions of the quote. What that means is that what he meant when he wrote whatever it was, and what the listener/reader gets out of it or interprets it as, may … Continue reading Mr. Mercury
"Tom and Rikki Lee" They had a wildness that I couldn’t get to in the same way anymore, if I ever knew it. They had gypsy clothes on, no matter what they wore, it was how they moved, how to wear a hat, and you can’t teach natural cool like that. They sat with their … Continue reading Tom and Rikki Lee
Grunge is the music that my generation created, whether the label of "grunge" is one that was met with approval or acceptance or not. Passionately philosophically divested in many ways from the heavy metal and "pretty" hair bands and glam bands of the heyday of "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" of previous generations, the … Continue reading It Is Still Beautiful.
