The Ballad of Treadmill Trackstar: Music for Music's Sake
2011-06-05 07:00:00
When it comes artists, true artists regardless of media, there's a sort of compulsion that leads them to create. It's not about money or fame or anything other than the love the making their art that makes them continue... art for art's sake. There's a lot of musicians that fall into that category of artist, but the mainstream hasn't always been receptive of their work in the past. --> read more

Carnival of Rock and Roll?April 2011
2011-04-03 07:00:00
Well I've finally gotten around to being able to put together another Carnival of Rock 'n' Roll and although the number of submissions was actually quite high, it was unfortunately plagued with spam and things far, FAR off topic. Nothing against those people who submitted something off topic, but they don't get to be part of the carnival. --> read more

Foo Fighters Rock Wembley With Extra Special Guests
2008-06-10 07:01:00
In case you missed the news, several thousand (something like 80,000?), extremely lucky Foo Fighters fans were treated to one heck of a special event June 7th 2008. Recently the Foos have been reaching out to some of their heroes. They played with a couple members of Rush just recently, although I can’t ...

Yesterday was a truly sad day for rock and roll as one of it’s original founding members passed away. Bo Diddley died yesterday of heart failure after months of ill health at the age of 79, and so I thought I would take today to mourn his passing, offer condolences to his family and ...

Happy Memorial Day from the Soul of Rock and Roll
2008-05-26 07:01:00
Hey everyone, just thought I’d wish a quick happy Memorial Day. Although it’s often more about the barbecues and parades, let’s make sure that we try to remember what Memorial Day is really celebrating: the men and women who have fought and died in service for their country. I like to do that ...

Iron Maiden Live 1980: Heavy Metal with More to it than Meets the Eye
2008-05-22 07:01:00
I took a glance through the archives recently here at the Soul of Rock ‘n’ Roll and then a subsequent glance through my music collection and decided that for someone who loves massively thick and fuzzed out guitar sounds… I don’t have nearly enough hard rock and heavy metal in my collection. Can’t tell ...

Traffic Live in 1972 to Celebrate Steve Winwood Turning 60
2008-05-14 07:01:00
It’s hard to imagine that back in the early 60s with the Spencer Davis Group that Steve Winwood was a mere 15. It was only 4 years later that he would put together the band Traffic , one of the first bands to delve into jazz fusion. I first came to know about Steve ...

Weezer, Lyrics, Record Labels and Why the Industry Needs to Change: A Rant
2008-05-12 07:01:00
It seems the number of bands who are upset with their record labels, is sort of skyrocketing. Actually I think it’s more so the number of bands that are coming out and speaking about their label troubles that is increasing, as opposed to the actual number of bands unhappy, because the times just seem ...

More Free Music from Nine Inch Nails
2008-05-07 05:13:00
As the music industry continues to shift away from label focus and towards a more artist centric viewpoint (at least in my view), we’re seeing more and more music released online where the fans can get it directly from the band. Leading that charge are many of the more progressive bands including a certain ...

The Uplifting Magic of Santana Live: A Concert Review
2008-04-27 07:01:00
There is always something extra special about going to a concert that cannot be found in other music formats. Albums, even live albums, just don’t seem to be able to capture all of the energy and atmosphere in the room when a band is on stage performing. That isn’t to say that the ...

The Hook Plays the Blues Live: The Mastery of John Lee Hooker
2008-04-24 07:01:00
I don’t think anyone can really debate that blues is where rock and roll all began. Which artists had the most impact on early rock and especially classic rock can be debated to the ends of the earth with supporters of various artists all having valid points and defending their idols to the death. ...

Today is Earth Day so I thought I’d take a minute to put environmental thoughts into everyone’s head.

Digital Beatles Fan Remasters Released Online

This is easily one of the coolest stories I’ve heard about in a long time. Beatles fans have only been waiting for someone to come along, remaster the original albums and release them in updated CD (or other format) versions. It’s not that the original CD releases are of a horrible quality, but ...
