Meeting Jimmy Page

There I was, stars in eyes, suitcase in hand, and blood pumped full of adrenalin while entering the queue to meet Jimmy Page. It was midnight; my bud and I had just gotten on off our 8-hour bus ride, ready to get our hands dirty with some JP. You never think you are going to be the person sleeping on a filthy New York City sidewalk to meet a fellow human being, until you are sleeping on a filthy New York City sidewalk to meet a fellow...

5 Classic Albums You Should Finally Listen To

After contemplating the ratio of people who have heard of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon compared to those who have actually listened to it all the way through, I was slightly disturbed.

Bumpin’ and Grindin’: R. Kelly’s Comeback and the Night I Witnessed it in Person

2013 was a pretty good year in music I have to say. A ton of new bands and artists popped up out of nowhere with really exciting albums (Autre Ne Veut, A$AP Ferg, Speedy Ortiz) and artists that have been around for a while produced some of their best work to date (I’m looking at you Vampire Weekend, Kanye West, and The National).
