About

Following the bands you know. Finding the ones you might not.

Everybody needs room to jam.

Life is a jam: rocking that steady beat, spitting out solos in every direction -- never losing hope, arm-in-arm with your tribe, gaining volume, momentum and confidence -- taking it all in -- pulling from the chaos that surrounds us to find out what's best in the rhythms.

What will you find in The Jam Room? Tons of new vids, a few album reviews, music and guitar rants, lists of things I like, laments about my inability to play piano well and, perhaps, every now and then a song or two of my own.

Jamming is the beginning of music -- when humans got bored of just existing, started clacking sticks with crickets around the campfire -- when humankind found what it needed in nature to make sense of who we are as a species.

Welcome. Please be loud in whatever way you feel comfortable.

Rock and/or roll.
