BLOG – “THE HALVING OF MAYER’S HEART”

BLOG – “THE HALVING OF MAYER’S HEART” 

Recently I read a great article in Rolling Stone. Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton interviewed together. Guitar royalty talking about the evolution of The Yardbirds, their admiration for each other’s talents and their subtle competition to outdo each other. Both agreed that B.B. King is the Master of Blues and Jimi Hendrix is the God […]

STP @ SXSW

STP @ SXSW 

After a nine year break – Stone Temple Pilots has the engine fully greased again! The band shifted straight into fifth gear, kicking off its spring tour last night to a raucous Austin Music Hall crowd at SXSW. Scott Weiland and the boys revved it up with a little “Vasoline” right out of the gate. The STP classic was the perfect lube for this much anticipated musical […]

BLOG – “SXSW WATERFALL”

BLOG – “SXSW WATERFALL” 

It was an average winter night in early 2007. My wife and I were sitting on the couch unwinding from a long day. The TV was on, but we were obliviously lost in our own worlds. Then, all of a sudden, the silence was shattered with a smooch. Not from the misses and me. From […]

BOB SCHNEIDER – SAN FRANCISCO (2/21/10)

BOB SCHNEIDER – SAN FRANCISCO (2/21/10) 

There is nothing like Bob Schneider live at Saxon Pub in Austin. It’s like jamming with him in his living room. He’s a Texas treasure, but when Bob hits the road, the rest of the country shines brighter. On this late February evening, however, it poured like a Peruvian rain forest in San Francisco. Bob suggested […]

AUSTIN CITY LIMITS FESTIVAL 2009

AUSTIN CITY LIMITS FESTIVAL 2009 

ACL 2009 was epic! Three days, eight stages, 130 bands. So many stories to tell… There was more than sex on fire at the Kings of Leon show; why Caleb was burning on much more. Also, the making of a musician through mushrooms, the tastiness of a chicken fried fiddle and the sheer beauty of skinny love. Plus, how […]

OUTSIDE LANDS 2009

OUTSIDE LANDS 2009 

Year two of the Outside Lands Festival, and the review must always begin on the hollowed grounds that play host to the event. Golden Gate Park – so many epic performances from decades ago including The Dead, Joplin and Jimi. The weather is always an interesting juggling act. Sunny and warm when the sun’s out. The exact opposite when it’s not. And […]

Over the last decade, the warm desert setting of Indio, California, east of Palm Springs, has hosted music’s biggest names – from Madonna in ’06, to Prince in ’08, and now in ’09 – Sir Paul McCartney. In addition to the headliners, there’s an eclectic array of entertainers to keep crazed fans from all genres satisfied. […]

OUTSIDE LANDS FESTIVAL 2008 

It’s one of the most storied rock n’ roll cities in the world, and now San Francisco has a major music festival that does its history justice. One hundred fifty thousand people packed Golden Gate Park under mild, late August skies. The sounds coming from the six stages set on rolling grassy meadows in the […]

JOSS STONE – ACL 2007

JOSS STONE – ACL 2007 

Joss Stone has found unconditional love, and she’s sharing it with the world. Her lover has no lips to kiss, no eyes that shine, no smile that says, “Welcome home.” Instead, her beau hits her heart to a depth that cannot be measured. When she’s looking for fun, this love makes her dance. When she’s […]

AUSTIN CITY LIMITS FESTIVAL – 2006

AUSTIN CITY LIMITS FESTIVAL – 2006 

Tonight’s sunset in Austin is amazing – red, orange and yellow zig-zagging across the sky. It turns pink and purple and then fades away to navy and black. As the stars come out and the humidity dips, the air is suddenly breathable, the beer tastes better and it’s time to get my dance on. It’s […]
