MediaMass is a satire site, folks.
Apparently, Kiss remains what they were from the beginning---proof that Mr. Mencken was right: nobody ever goes broke underestimating the...
More like it committed suicide.
Heavy metal has long been the too-classic evidence on behalf of the argument that surrealistically gifted musicians (and they are) can and have...
One of his major influences, but not the prime one:
The first time I saw Michael Bloomfield play guitar was when the Butterfield Blues Band came...
Often forgotten: Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac was a very popular live performance draw. It's not impossible that, if Green hadn't spun out, they...
Likewise for me!
Teenie Hodges, the great guitar accompanist at Hi Records in Memphis during that label's classic 1970s days . . .

When you can make music like the Tedeschi-Trucks Band you don't need "stage presence."
Uh, no he wasn't . . .
To answer the OP's question, I'm trying to put a new blues band together, concentrating mostly on...
This one's still my favourite record by Dick Dale . . . and could also be known as "Meshuggena Beach Party" . . .
No guitar of mine goes out unless it's in a hard case.
You should seek out, among others, Pepper Adams, Hamiet Bluiett (once a member of Charles Mingus's groups), Harry Carney (a mainstay of Duke...
