The Doobie Brothers | Sibling Rivalry – Lost Gem
Vintage Rock
by newvin_admin
4d ago
The Doobie Brothers have weathered enough styles and changes in personnel to deserve recognition as the sturdy and successful unit they are. Embracing an easy-going, country-infected stance that has always been at the foundation of their sound, Sibling Rivalry, released in 2000, didn’t exactly set the world on fire. It did, however, satisfy those who yearn for the simple rhythm and lightly textured harmonies that the Doobies have always been known for. Without Michael McDonald in the fold, the band reached beyond the blue-eyed funk/jazz leanings that, to many of their early fans, almost killed ..read more

Creedence Clearwater Revival | Cosmo’s Factory – Classic Commentary
Vintage Rock

1w ago
Creedence Clearwater Revival’s fifth album, Cosmo’s Factory, was arguably the peak of the Bay Area band’s commercial run. It dented the number one spot on the charts for an amazing nine consecutive weeks. Although it boasted three hit singles, it was, as a whole, much more AOR than most CCR fans would want to believe. When you do a smokin’ 11-minute version of Marvin Gaye’s “I Heard It Through The Grapevine,” you’re not worrying about feeding the hit parade. On that cue, CCR’s next and final album as a foursome — Pendulum — would go on to be their first commercial flop. Go figure. No doubt, Jo ..read more

Sister Rosetta Tharpe | Live In France: The 1966 Concert In Limoges – Live Release Review

Sister Rosetta Tharpe isn’t exactly a name on the tip of everyone’s tongue. But if you have any interest in the origins of rock and roll, it’s a name you should know. Chuck Berry reportedly once said his entire career was “one long Sister Rosetta Tharpe impersonation.” Bob Dylan called her “a powerful force of nature, a guitar playing, singing evangelist.” Both Elvis Presley and Little Richard cited her as a major influence. If you saw Baz Luhrmann’s film Elvis, she pops up in the story. Alabama Shakes’ singer and guitarist Brittany Howard, who inducted the musician into the Rock and Roll Hall ..read more

The Rolling Stones | April 28, 2024 | NRG Stadium | Houston, TX – Concert Review

Review by Jordan West The entity known as “The World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band” keeps rolling along. Celebrating over 60 years as a band and playing the first show of their 16-city Hackney Diamonds Tour, the Rolling Stones showed no signs of slowing down, as they rocked a sold-out NRG stadium in Houston Texas, with a tight, well-rehearsed, 18 song set, before an enthusiastic, all age crowd of fans. I was fortunate to be among the benefactors of a ticket process that the Stones have implicated the last few years for dedicated ticket buyers, called the “Lucky Dip.” Ticket buyers have a chanc ..read more

Review by Ralph Greco, Jr. As long in the tooth as I am, it’s nice to be surprised by a classic band’s concert setlist; even better to be bowled over by it. Kansas pretty much knocked me out with a blistering two hours of their present Another Fork in the Road – 50th Anniversary Tour. Opening with “Belexes,” from the first Kansas album, the group moved on to “Point Of Know Return,” “Play The Game Tonight,” and “Fight Fire With Fire.” The band then hit full steam ahead, showcasing their 50 years on the planet with some very deep cuts. The pairing of “Icarus – Borne On Wings Of Steel,” with “Ica ..read more

Review by Trace Rock The Sessanta Tour is a five-week expedition to celebrate vocalist Maynard James Keenan’s 60th birthday. The mission of the tour is for bands to collaborate by sharing musicians and to evoke a sense of fellowship. The celebration brings together Keenan’s bands Puscifer and A Perfect Circle, along with the Les Claypool-fronted Primus. Keenan and vocalist and bassist Claypool (also 60) have known each other for thirty-one years. The two met when Keenan’s band Tool and Primus were on the 1993 Lollapalooza Tour. Both men are veteran alternative-rock visionaries who have maintai ..read more

By Ralph Greco, Jr. With AI on the rise, we all need to be ever more vigilant on what is coming from a real source and what could be manufactured by inputting some information and a few clicks of a mouse. But great vintage rock, made by the actual hands, mouths, brains, and desires of real men and women (even when manipulating some studio machine) will always rise above the chafe of the manufactured. And so will the fans. With that said, here’s 10 ways to recognize a fake vintage rock fan: 1) They think that Jethro Tull is Ian Anderson’s name. 2) They mispronounce Lynyrd Skynyrd. 3) They thi ..read more
