    ... the birth of one of the greatest musical artists of our time, the legendary George Benson. A genuine triple threat.... singer, songwriter and guitarist.. I remember being captivated by this cut as a kid. Singing along with the horn lines he was playing on the guitar. I'm still amazed by it.

    Live From Home

    Been seeing lots of these. How about we share some of our favorites? Here's mine... Chris Thile shreading the everloving crap out of Gillian Welch's "Hard Times". Could be titled, "When Bill Monroe steals your Adderall."

    … AC/DC released "Highway To Hell". IMO, as close to a perfect rock n roll album as has ever been made. Great songs, front to back. Sonically, as good as I've ever heard. Top 5 all time, desert island album for me. Another interesting fact... 367 days after releasing "Highway To Hell", and...

    AC/DC released their first album after the passing of Bon Scott. They pulled off a feat that few bands have ever done... successfully continuing after losing an incredibly charismatic frontman. "Back In Black" speaks for itself and is one of those albums that I never get tired of listening to.

    … Guns N Roses released their debut album, "Appetite For Destruction". I was 19 years old and it was a huge record for me. IMO, as much of a game changer of an album in the hard rock genre and any before it.

    Peter Gabriel's "So"...

    Released 33 years ago, today. Arguably, one of the best albums of the 80's. I was a week or so away from graduating high school when this came out. I was a metalhead and wanted very little to do with any other genre, but this album resonated with me in a big way. Incredible songs, great...

    It's hard to believe it's been 15 years. His was a genuine tragedy. Layne Staley was a troubled soul, no doubt, but out of the despair and anguish came music that was more real than anything else that came out of that damp city and took over music for a few, brief years. Look no further than...
