Spotlight on Fan Halen - The World's Greatest Tribute to Van Halen

What I hope to accomplish in this series is to analyze, compartmentalize and paint a clear picture of the phenomenon of the Cover Band as career from an anthropological view point. I am not an anthropologist, or an apologist of any sort for that matter and I guess that's what qualifies me. That and my desire/knowledge of music and its extension of the human spirit - I'm fascinated as much as I'm confused by the idea of a professional cover band - and in complete anarchy of the idea of a Tribute band - one…

Tricky-Kid Top 25 LPs of 2017

Here it is! -  
As I disclaim every year, I'm not so arrogant that I believe that what we like/listen to is somehow the "Top LPS" of the year or as if I've heard every album that's come out this year - This is simply the stuff that we listened to the most or got the majority of our attention this year.

Depeche Mode - September 22nd - Starplex Pavillion - Dallas, TX

I did it - It finally happened: I saw Depeche Mode perform live- For some reason the specific pleasure has escaped after being a fan for over 25 years. Everytime we were in the same town at the same time, something would ALWAYS come up to prevent me from seeing them.
