SALUTE 50 years of Abby Road

SALUTE 50 years of Abby Road

Wow..what can I say but YES this is one of my favorite albums of all time.  Yes I can say I was just a very young “Duffer” when it came out but I remember borrowing it from my cousin to listen on my MONO turntable in my room.  I was an electronics NERD and took it apart and wired the small speaker over to my guitar amplifier!  GREAT sound (for mono) and filled the room.  One listen and I gave the album back to my cousin as I was headed out to go get my own copy!  I thought side two was just a suite of songs…not knowing at the time that the songs on side two were just songs they didn’t finish and decided to run them all together.  What a incredible concept.  I can’t even imagine how many times I’ve listened to this album.  Love it…will never be without it and thank you John, Paul, George and Ringo for being part of my life!  Congratulations…job well done.

Congrats…We’re getting old(er)

So with so many of our Classic Rock stars passing away do you find yourself starting to think a little more about it than usual?  I remember years ago not even thinking about it.  Somehow it has a slight impact as of late.  With the passing of Eddie Money I actually deleted the Series DVR…read more »

Dan Rather interviews ROCK STARS?

Dan Rather interviews ROCK STARS?

It’s called The Big Interview with Dan Rather.  NEVER would I have thought these would be interesting.  Nothing against Dan Rather but I just never saw him as a rock fan nor someone who has been in the trenches of Vietnam that would conduct interviews with rock stars.  I gotta tell you….I was wrong.  These…read more »
