The album, I mean. Or do I? We shall see. As I mentioned in a previous post, many of my all time favorite Stones songs appear on 1969’s “Let It Bleed” album, while not necessarily being cuts off of that album. So I got to thinking what the ultimate mega-mix of “Let It Bleed” would […]

Every now and then, I’ll run through the entire catalog for an artist or band. And today, it’s Weezer, a band with which the world has (apparently) had a weird relationship. *PLEASE NOTE: This was written BEFORE hearing “The Black Album.” Which makes some of my statements questionable.  It’s always the same with Weezer — […]

It’s been a recent fantasy of mine to perform guitar on the street. Not really concentrating on making money, but more to just do it. I’ve kind of fantasized that I would be playing some Bikini Kill song on the off-chance that another fan might recognize it and want to join in. This is the […]
