It’s true that 2017 made quite an entrance on the musical, social & political part. I won’t deal with anything else but music; although things are not going so well both on the social & political part and soon they are gonna affect music as well. Let’s hope that this won’t happen anytime… Read More

Well that time of year is already here! Hooray!!! It’s the end of 2016 and we are standing at the door of 2017! Apart from the Season’s Greetings, I must say that 2016 was a good music year on the whole. No, I am not going to do a retrospection of 2016, but be sure to check the lists with the… Read More

I’ve always wondered why some artists & musicians get into politics and they try to blend arts (music, theater etc.) with politics in general. Well, some may argue that they both deal with the commons so… but come on, let’s be honest. The arts and especially music has nothing to do with… Read More

Another matter that caught my attention was that thing about (smart)phones on live shows, a fact that was brought up by Alicia Keys. Well, from now on, your (smart)phone will be locked-up on any Alicia live show. I like the idea of the phone-free zone, especially at a live show or a festival. I… Read More

Well, what’s with all that madness about the Brexit? Why are people so into it? We all know that the European Union is not what it was meant to be and it was just a matter of time to be broken into pieces again. After all, musically speaking, the UK was always apart from Europe… just see some… Read More

I was looking at a band’s name the other day and it was familiar in a way. Then I did a brief search and I found out that there have been at least 4-5 bands with the same name since the 70s. This wasn’t the first time that I happened upon a band with a name that has been used before. This is sort… Read More

It’s been quite a while since I wrote down some things about the music business and the way things work these days. Hence, the new trend has to do with the digital promos… but hey that ain’t new at all. Sure it ain’t! But I’m talking about the streaming promos! Hooray!!! Things are even easier… Read More

Well, since it’s officially Spring now and the time has also changed, I decided to do a little “experiment” and see if people are interested in new releases and new bands or not, especially these days.   Having been a part of several FB rock/metal music groups and on FB pages, I started posting… Read More

Something very wrong is going on with the “music industry” these days. And by “music industry” or “music scene” if you prefer, I mean the DIY or independent bands that are increasingly releasing albums every so often. I do know how hard things are when an independent band has a new album out and… Read More

How not to comment on the frequency that some Rock Stars & legendary musicians have passed away over the last month or so?! It’s like the “old rock/metal generation” is leaving us for good! And that ain’t a good thing cuz there are not so great rock personalities or songwriters today, like… Read More
