Relive 1995 with this Billy Joel Calendar

By |2017-08-20T18:30:43-04:00August 21st, 2017|Categories: Article|Tags: |0 Comments

Growing up, I was never one for modern popular music. I listened to my parents' music, so classic rock which was my dad's choice or folk music which was my mom's. One of my dad's albums was 1973's Pianoman by Billy Joel. I remember running across this album with a mix of light-hearted but [...]

A mystery of a trilogy

We’ve discussed the concept of the death trilogy here before, but the events of the last several days left CT and me puzzling over this one. Ed McMahon (1923-2009) Farrah Fawcett (1947-2009) Michael Jackson (1958-2009) What’s the thread tying these three together? Any ideas, fellow lunchers?

Shatner Week: Has Been

By |2017-03-17T01:02:33-04:00March 25th, 2009|Categories: Article|Tags: , , , |3 Comments

I'm not entirely sure what Shatner was trying to accomplish with The Transformed Man. What may have been an attempt to be truly artistic turned into a largely mocked and campy outcome. The album is Shatner unleashed and I think Shatner is at his best on a leash.Shatner's performances of "Hey Mr. Tambourine Man" and [...]

Music Nerd: The Man of Bronze

By |2017-03-17T01:02:35-04:00February 17th, 2009|Categories: Article|Tags: |1 Comment

Yeah, it's a tricone resonator guitar. And it's a lefty, which is a rarity indeed. And I love the baked-on bronze powder coat. And it's reasonably priced. So what's the holdup? Well, I'm thinking that I'd like the same thing, but in a squareneck model (for lap-style playing). So I'm continuing to harass Frank at [...]

El Tres para Senor Solo Macho

I'm still shopping for a new instrument. It's a sickness. The National Association of Music Merchants just had their annual trade show, and a lot of interesting new gear debuted. One item that caught my eye is the Martin LXM Tres. It's very similar to the Martin tenor guitar I've been circling, but unlike the [...]
