The Ballad of Treadmill Trackstar: Music for Music's Sake

When it comes artists, true artists regardless of media, there's a sort of compulsion that leads them to create. It's not about money or fame or anything other than the love the making their art that makes them continue... art for art's sake. There's a lot of musicians that fall into that category of artist, but the mainstream hasn't always been receptive of their work in the past.

Queens of the Stone Age Rock Their Debut Album and More

Who thinks I need to go to more concerts? I absolutely do... especially when they're as great as the one I went to earlier this month. In early April here in Chicago, I finally got to witness in person the massive awesomeness that is a Queens of the Stone Age live concert.

Rock and Roll Feature: Steely Dan Can't Buy a Thrill­

This is the thirty-sixth 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–April 2011

Well I've finally gotten around to being able to put together another Carnival of Rock 'n' Roll and although the number of submissions was actually quite high, it was unfortunately plagued with spam and things far, FAR off topic. Nothing against those people who submitted something off topic, but they don't get to be part of the carnival.

The Secret History of Rock 'n' Roll: The Mysterious Roots of Modern Music

Anyone who's ever been to a really great rock and roll concert can probably tell you... it's more than “just a concert”. No. the good ones can border on a sort of mystical experience where magical things happen and time seems to stand still, albeit just for a moment... even if it's a sober moment.

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.

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!

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.
