We're hoping for a "Sunny Afternoon" but I'm afraid it will be mostly cloudy.
We’re just hours away from the eclipse. People are traveling all over the world to see the sun and moon come together. For some of us, it’ll be our last chance to witness this phenomenon. It’s easy to find a viewing party….and if there’s a party, there needs to be music. Here’s some tunes to... Read more »

Why The Beatles Mean So Much To Me

Why The Beatles Mean So Much To Me
Hey kids! It’s Blogapolooz night. What?! You’re thinking didn’t you just do one yesterday? Well yeah, we did but this is the night time version. Just think of it like The Price Is Right, where they have a day and night show. They still do that don’t they? Anyway…tonight’s topic is “Pick a song (or songs)... Read more »

Donald Trump....Cease & Desist

Donald Trump....Cease & Desist
It happens every four years. Election season. Politicians pick songs that they think describes themselves and their candidacies. They try to pick tunes that the public thinks are cool and hip. The voters like the songs, maybe they’ll like the candidate. One problem with this is that most Republican candidates find songs from artists that... Read more »

Ringo Starr Auctions His Memorabilia

Ringo with his wife Barbara Bach. He's not auctioning her off.

Imagine getting your hands on some of his memorabilia? You had your chance this week as Ringo auctioned off over 800 pieces he accumulated over his five decades... Read more »

Happy Birthday George Harrison: His Life In Pictures And Songs

Young George
Today would be George Harrison’s 72nd birthday. He died fourteen years ago and is still missed. I often wonder what George would be doing if he was still with us. I doubt he would be touring like Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr. He might be doing the occasional charity or tribute gig. He’d probably be... Read more »

Goodbye to 2014 in Blogo-land

 This is my final effort for the year. So as the late, great Craig Ferguson Show would say….What have we learned in the last year, Howie? 1. I’ve done 11 pieces on death. ELEVEN!! I must be obsessed or trying to find some hidden meaning? But people like this crap….sorta.  Great Songs about Death is one... Read more »

George Harrison should be celebrating his 71st birthday today. A victim of Lung Cancer. A victim of cigarettes.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
