Joe Cocker is one of the great singers of the late 60's-70's. "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" is one of the great live albums.
Yesterday, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announced their class of 2018. The inductees will be the Cure, Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music and the Zombies.  I would normally take this space to argue why or why not they are deserving of the honor. Not today. I’m okay with results although... Read more »

During campaigns politicians have songs that they think relate to them. They play them at all their rally’s and their conventions. Why not have songs that describe the new Presidency? Here are some tunes for the new President: In spite of the snarkiness of these songs, I really so want things to go well for... Read more »

Top Ten List: David Letterman And His Music
Tonight will be the final Late Show with David Letterman. I’ve been a huge Letterman fan since the opening NBC show in 1982. There was something about him that made you turn him on every night. It was so much different than anything that was on the air. Bill Murray was the first guest. Chris... Read more »

    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.
