""I do think there's a link between the sensationalized performances, the internet, and the fact that people just want to jump down the throats of anyone who disagrees with them. We could all be well advised to take a deep breath in…"

"Hey Dan,  I loved the half time show and so did the 6 people I was Super Bowl partying with.  I'm 61, there were two folks in the room close to my age and 4 30 somethings.  I loved the way Bruno kicked it off on the drum kit, I…"

Of Bruno Mars, Halftime, and a State of the Music Address.

Everybody is raving about the 2014 Super Bowl halftime show.

Merry Christmas From The Three Kings - Freddie, Albert, and BB

Though unrelated by blood, three men named King were arguably the most influential blues guitarists of the past sixty years. Such luminaries as Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Carlos Santana all credit the Kings as being major influences on their playing styles.

George Duke: Up Close and Personal

The mid-seventies were a busy time for master keyboardist and jazz/rock icon George Duke. The projects he involved himself in that were the most visible at that time were his many recordings and tours with Frank Zappa, and his own band with drummer extraordinaire Billy Cobham.

I had seen both Duke and Cobham perform live, but separately – George with Zappa and Billy with the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Both were simply incredible musicians and spellbinding to…
