Note to all mixtape makers out there...when creating your 2017 summer mix, Spoon's 'Pink Up' and 'Passionfruit' are a fantastic 1-2 punch to start it off.

Rattle and Hum is great. When the dvd came out I remember figuring out a way to record the songs from the film onto my old onkyo receiver/pioneer dual tape deck. 'When Love Comes to Town,' Bad and the version of 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' where Bono goes off from the film is essential viewing, and to be able have the ability to listen to it in my old nissan was easily one of the greatest recording accomplishments of my young baked life.

February 1, 2017 on Bruno Mars Eyed For Grammys’ Prince Tribute
What they should do is collect a bunch of bands/artists and do a medley...you could essentially tab anyone from The Weeknd to Spoon. But then again, this is The Grammys, and to actually single out how far his reach was to the music community in this way would be far too practical.

February 1, 2017 on Bruno Mars Eyed For Grammys’ Prince Tribute
I agree...to a degree. Love when he rolls songs like 'Son of a Ladies Man,' 'I Love You Honeybear' or 'Holy Shit' outta his strumming guitar. And, I'll take the occasional 'Bored in the USA,' or this, and 'Pure Comedy,' but the latter examples do tend to take on the similar structure and preachy angle. This track, tho, does feel like something that may fit nicely as an interlude between songs. I am sure the album will be epic to an almost excessive degree, but still...its FJM. He's tenured the freedom of us waiting to hear the entire body of work before judgement. The album feels like it has the makings of being the apex to his catalog.

Not that I don't adore 'Carrie and Lowell,' it being one of my favorites, but he could read the obit section from a newspaper over a few chords and it'd carry more 'wistful elation' than that album. Lookin forward to it...

Let those who grew up with the evolution of U2 and their pinnacle moment, The Joshua Tree, let you in on their "appeal." There was nobody besides maybe REM who put more of a stamp on radio friendly 'alternative' music in the 80's than them. Go give Rattle and Hum and view and you may understand how massive attention U2 and that album created.

Does "slower and more reflective" refer to the songs or her recording approach? Past has proven this description applies to both. Either way, bring it on Grimesy...

Its the Nobel Peace Prize. It's very fucking important, and the honor should be acknowledged. No one is asking him to gloat, but at least pay respect to those who have paved its path.

Pretty sure Leo hasn't swung and missed yet and coming of Revenant, tough to not think his streak will continue. Book was riveting. What would rock is if Iñárritu & Lubezki joined in...then we'll definitely have somethin. One facts for sure, ground zero for rock was Sun Records.

My experience with Buck was '88 when I was knee deep into Clapton at the time, and his album, Taking it Home featured Slow Hand on 'Why Does Love Have to be So Sad." Honestly woulda never known him if it wasn't for my love with Clapton, and he put him on the pop culture map with that song. Robert Cray also helped as well....great musician and was sorry to hear we lost him when I read the news. RIP
