Heartbreak Remedy Midnight Groove CD Album Review

Heartbreak Remedy: Midnight Groove

Idlewar Dig In EP CD Album Review

If the only quality on which to judge the relative merits of any given album was originality, we might as well take Idlewar's new Dig In EP, write it off as a dud and go ... [ Read More ]

It's Only Rock n Roll

If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal.
   Alice Cooper

Hard rock will always be hard rock, but you don't really know what is rock - and what isn't - anymore. I don't consider a lot of the pop things I hear on the radio to be rock n' roll. It's just kind of fragmented.
