Happy Halloween from the Soul of Rock and Roll


I'll keep this short and sweet today.... just want to wish everyone a fun, happy and safe Halloween.

Check back tomorrow when we continue our regularly scheduled programming with the November Carnival of Rock 'n' Roll.

Take care,

Elvis Costello Live Footage, Rare and Known.

Recently I've been trying to expand my musical collection with a lot of artists/bands that I've had on my radar for a while and just haven't explored as in depth as I would like. The list of artists I compiled for this little endeavor has quite a range to it and includes a certain singer/songwriter/punk rock icon I've been hearing sporatic songs by for something like a decade or longer.

Nick Cave Commands the Stage Like No Other, and Seems to Only Be Getting Better With Age: A Concert Review

Back in September, a mere week after I went to another great concert (read my review of the Eagles here: Playing Like it Actually IS the Farewell Tour: The Eagles – A Concert Review), I was lucky enough to attend another show, a concert I had been anticipating for months.

A Little Music To Weather the New Storm... The Economic One

Well, although we survived the hurricanes and the flooding, while all that was going down we fell into a new storm that is still effecting us and is spreading... the economic crisis. With the market on a perpetual roller-coaster, the US government working to do whatever they can to right the ship (including throwing money at the problem) and the general public wondering if we're going to be in for just a little recession or will be bartering for food by the end of the month, it's certainly exciting times that we live in.

Playing Like it Actually Ii the Farewell Tour: The Eagles - A Concert Review

September was a good month for concerts here at the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll, and because of that, I can post some concert reviews this month. I was able to see two of the amazing shows, by two very different artists, at two very different venues, amazingly making for two incredible, but very different shows. And it just so happened that they both happened within a few days of each other, making for one stellar week for me.

Rock and Roll Feature: The Umma and the Gumma of Pink Floyd's Ummagumma

This is the twenty-first 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.
