Slipknot - The Devil In I [OFFICIAL VIDEO] / Psychosocial [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

Here's the new single from Slipknot. A guy that I work with is really into this shit, but I'm not convinced yet. This song embraces every dysfunctional, demonic and satanic cliche that has made heavy rock, over the past 20 plus years, into a truly depressing listening experience. Embrace satin and enjoy the madness.............

And here's another spiritually crushing demon classic called Psychosocial from the All Hope Is Gone album............

Blue Jays - Who Are You Now / I Dreamed Last Night

Some lost classics from John Lodge and Justin Hayward of The Moody Blues circa 1977. This is some stunningly beautiful music! Enjoy..............

Phil Ochs - I Ain't Marching Anymore

Phil Ochs was one of the very best songwriters of the 1960's. This is, by far, his most famous song - but not necessarily his best song. I'll be covering the music of Phil Ochs in great detail in the coming weeks............

Hawkwind - BBC Documentary

This is as crazy and heady as rock music will ever get! No sellout here........

Tommy James - Tighter Tighter / Me, The Mob, & The Music

Tommy James & The Shondells were one of my favorite bands when I was growing up back in the late 1960's. I'll be covering their music in great detail during the coming months. Nevertheless, now I find out that a bunch of homicidal wise guys were actually producing the innocent bubblegum music that I was grooving on as a teenybopper..........

Frank Zappa And Gene Simmons And Others Explain Why MTV And The Grunge Culture Destroyed Today's Music Business

I always thought that the music industry was getting a bit cheesy when MTV started dominating the popular culture, but everybody that I knew thought that the MTV glamor and glitz was just so super cool. It broke my heart to see Yes and Genesis being railroaded by their record companies during the early 1980's and selling out for a cheep buck. Emerson Lake & Palmer actually broke up in 1979 over this shit? I could see that less artistic freedom had become the norm, and I wasn't buying into any of it! Hind sight is 20/20. MTV was the beginning of the end for the rock music industry.....

Uriah Heep - Dreamer / Seven Stars / Sunrise / Pilgrim / Gypsy / Easy Livin' / Salisbury / The Magicians Birthday

My two favorite Uriah Heep albums are Sweet Freedom (1973) and The Magicians Birthday (1972). You should download both of those albums in their entirety. The combo of Ken Hensley (keyboards), Mick Box (guitar) and David Byron (vocals) was killer during the early 1970's.

However, Byron's drinking problem destroyed this band after the Sweet Freedom album and the band was never the same afterwards. Byron was sacked from the band in 1976, without any public explanation. At the time, I was shocked that Uriah Heep would actually dump one of the beat rock vocalists of the time, and for decades I always wondered why it happened. Well, a few months ago I finally found out why it happened. Byron was an impossible drunkard..........

According to Wikipedia "Byron died of alcohol related complications, including liver disease and seizures, at his home in Maidenhead, Berkshire, on Thursday, 28 February 1985. He was 38 years old. His death was barely reported in the music press".

Bette Midler - The Rose

I love this song! That's why I posted it three different times and from three different sources. You just can't trust Youtube not to delete anything and everything and for the flimsiest of reasons! Hopefully, at least one of these three videos will be here for a long time? Enjoy!

Ritchie Family - The Best Disco In Town (1976)

Village People - Macho Man

Utopia - Singring And The Glass Guitar (An Electrified Fairytale) / Utopia (full album}

This is probably the beat album that Todd Rundgren ever made! I really need to get this one on CD myself. Enjoy!
