Queens of the Stone Age Reissue Debut and Plan Tour

As someone who considers themselves something of a collector when it comes to music, there always seems to be an album or two that I can't seem to track down both in good condition and for a price I'm willing to pay.

The Wall Comes to Life in Roger Waters' 30th Anniversary Show

Saying that I'm a fan of Pink Floyd and of The Wall doesn't see to really cover exactly how I feel about their work and this particular album. To this day I remember the first time I really listened to it in it's entirety and the mixture of awe, identification and absolute confusion I felt afterward.

Rock and Roll Feature: The Who, Art Rock, Lifehouse and Who's Next

This is the thirty-third 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.

First Track from the Smashing Pumpkins Epic, Teargarden By Kaleidoscope

During the time the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll was being redesigned and reborn, there was a lot of music news that I didn't get to discuss. One of the most exciting (at least for a big Pumpkins fan like me) was the announcement that the Smashing Pumpkins would be releasing their next album, a 44 song epic called Teargarden By Kaleidoscope would be released a song at a time online.

The Mars Volta, an Incredible Live Experience

It was well over two months ago that I was lucky enough to see this band live. I meant to write a review almost immediately, but between site overhauls, other issues and a series of delays, this is the first time I'm actually getting around to doing so properly. Consider it a testament to how much I enjoyed this show that I'm still writing a review so much later.

The Mars Volta Tear it Up Live With Rapid Fire Psychedelic Style

A few months prior... before the site overhaul, many unique circumstances and many many more delays, I went to a concert. That by itself is not all that uncommon as I go to a number of concerts every year and will certainly go to more every year in the future.

Rock and Roll Feature: Unlock the Multifaceted Octahedron with the Mars Volta

This is the thirtieth 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.

Today I put forward what is the 30th Rock and Roll feature I've done in the past 2-1/2+ years. There's been a lot of variety, albums new and old, during that stretch and each one remains a favorite of mine for some reason or another to this day.

Incubus Continues to Bring Complex and Exciting Music to the Stage: A Concert Review

Well I just couldn't keep away... my concert addiction continues... not that I'm really complaining. This time I caught a band I've seen a total of four times now, and will probably make an effort to catch every time they come around because they're a favorite of mine, and they always put on a great show: Incubus.

Rock and Roll Feature: A Tribute to Sky Saxon through the Music of the Seeds

This is the twenty-ninth 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.

Still Grateful to See the Dead Jamming Live: A Concert Review

As someone who didn't grow up during the 1960s, being enamored with the music of that era has always left me feeling a little detached. Most of my favorite bands/artists stopped touring years before I was even born and in many cases their albums proceeded me by as many as 20 years! That may not have tempered my love of those bands any, but it has left me a little unsatisfied in terms of attending concerts.
