No More Music from the White Stripes

Sad news today from the world of rock and roll... The White Stripes, Jack and Meg White, have chosen to hang it up announcing that they're going to be leaving the legacy of the band as is, will not be recording or touring anymore and officially are calling it quits.

Carnival of Rock and Roll–February 2011

Even though my hometown and I have recently been buried under roughly 20 inches of snow (that's no joke or exaggeration, there literally was 20 inches that fell in 2 days and drifts of 3+ feet I shoveled from my driveway) I can smell something fun in the air.

New Music from the Strokes on the Way

It's been a good 5 years since we had new music from the band that brought the sounds of 60s garage rock back to the mainstream, but they're coming back with new music this spring. That's right, the Strokes have recently announced that their new album, tentatively titled “Angels”, is supposed to be released March 21 2011.

The Black Keys Bring in the New Year of 2011 With Real Rock and Roll

Where were you on New Years? Partying it up in some glitzy club? Down in Time Square freezing off various body parts? No no no... a true rock and roller was where I was... At one of 3 (or multiple) Black Keys concerts in Chicago!

Rock and Roll Feature: Paul McCartney's Band on the Run Takes Wings to a Whole New Level

This is the thirty-fifth in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

Carnival of Rock and Roll–January 2011

And rising from the ashes of an... let's say interesting... year of 2010, we have the first Carnival of Rock 'n' Roll of 2011. In fact this is more than just the first carnival of 2011, but the first of what I am hoping is a bit of a rebirth for the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll.

Carnival Pushed Back for December 2010

in

Well I decided to push this month's carnival back and start fresh come 2011, due to time constraints and a number of things out of my control at the moment.

Nothing serious, but time consuming.

Anyways, the next Carnival of Rock 'n' Roll will be published in January 2011, including posts submitted for the most recently carnival. Please visit Blogcarnival.com

Take care,

Carnival of Rock and Roll–November 2010

Carnival of Rock and Roll–November 2010
Alright, finally time to put together another Carnival of Rock 'n' Roll. There has been plenty of submissions, a few that seemed pretty hilariously cynical (who am I to judge, but unfortunately not exactly on topic) and lots to weed out actually from two months worth of stuff... still more than few that were pretty cool... so here we go.

Can Facebook Bring John Cage's 4 Minutes and 33 Seconds of Silence to the Top of the UK Charts?

I think it's nice to see some forms of what could be called “unique protest” out their in the music scenes today... protests against the mediocrity that's being released in so many cases.

Rock and Roll Feature: Remembering Imagine on John Lennon's 70th Birthday

This is the thirty-fourth in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

What can really be said that hasn't already been said about John Lennon?
