Three-time Grammy Award winner and R&B singer, Bill Withers, born on the 4th of July, 1938, died in Los Angeles March 30th from heart complications. He was 81. Withers wrote and sang a string of soulful tunes in the 1970s that featured “Lean on Me,” “Lovely Day” and “Ain’t No Sunshine,”

Withers disappeared from the music making scene in the mid-1980s. His death comes as the world has drawn inspiration from his music during the coronavirus pandemic, with health care workers, choirs, artists and more posting their own renditions on “Lean on Me” to help get through these difficult times. RIP Bill Withers!

Singer-songwriter John Prine, who for five decades wrote plain-spoken songs that chronicled the struggles and stories of everyday working people, died Tuesday, April 7th at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He was 73 years old. The cause was complications related to COVID-19.

Prine, who left behind an influential body of country-folk classics, was hospitalized last month after the sudden onset of COVID-19 symptoms, and was placed in intensive care for 13 days. Prine’s wife and manager, Fiona Prine, announced on March 17th that she had tested positive for the virus after they had returned from a European tour.

Amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, we managed to get the April issue of Metronome on the streets. It was quite eerie actually- lonely highways, shuttered businesses and only the brave (or crazy) walking the byways to their destinations. Nonetheless, we completed our distribution and feature 4 extraordinary artists on our cover: Brad Hallen and Christopher O'Donnell's outstanding new project, The Providers, the Americana duo of Karen & Tag, the supremely original Tequila Jim and one of Boston's finest songcrafters, Terry Kitchen.
We also punched out CD reviews of Sonny Landreth, Black Stone Cherry, The Johnny Barnes Group, Dennis Pearne, Close Lobsters, Tom Hanraty, Electric Standard, and The Midnight Callers as well as featuring our usual columns Metronome Madness and The Time Machine (featuring The Joneses).
You'll also find club and concert listings (but of course call ahead to make sure your show is still on) and Musician's Classifieds.
AND Please don't forget to support our advertisers. These good folks make it possible to keep Metronome bringing all the music to you. Thanks for reading! We appreciate it. Stay well.

01/18/2020

Rush drummer Neil Peart, whose virtuosity made him one of the most accomplished drummers in rock history, died from brain cancer, January 7th, 2020. He was 67.

The Canadian musician and lyricist joined Rush in 1974 along with singer-bassist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson. The progressive rock trio, would become one of the most beloved power trios in the history of rock music.

Rush delivered extensive, complex, prog-rock compositions highlighted by Peart's brilliant lyrics and delivered by Geddy Lee's unusual vocals, while being bolstered by the fiery guitar work of Alex Lifeson, Lee's bounding bass lines and Peart's precision time keeping.

Peart often cited swing-era drummers Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich among his primary inspirations, although he also credited the Who’s Keith Moon, Cream’s Ginger Baker and Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham as major influences. He was celebrated for his use of a 360-degree drum kit that incorporated dozens of drums, cymbals and other percussion instruments and accessories.

RIP Neil Peart!

Happy Holidays friends and players! The January issue is already on the streets and features four great acts. First up, bluesman Mark Nomad weighs in with a hip new rock & roll record called, Rocks In My Head. For this release, he's assumed his old nickname, Sparky, that was given to him by bandmates during his rock phase. This guy knows how to rock. Next up, former Marlowes frontman, John Larson lights up his new disc along with his band, The Silver Fields. If you're a lover of all things pop-rock, John and his band are the act for you. Award-winning Connecticut bluesman, Paul Gabriel, has been a staple in that state's blues scene for years and now his new album, Man of Many Blues, is shaking up the rest of the country. We had a long, candid conversation and he outlined his storied career for us. The One Dime Band floored us with their new album, Gonna Take Sweet Time, so we reached out to the blues duo (who are now a trio) and they gave us their story.
We reviewed some outstanding CDs by Jan Akkerman (od Focus fame), Diane Blue, Jack Mack & The Heart Attack, The Amplifier Heads (Sal Baglio & Ducky Carlisle), Flying Colors, Natalie MacMaster, Cold Expectations, The Shadracks, The Muffs and Motorhead along with our usual columns, The Time Machine (Heavy Metal Horns), Metronome Madness, Club & Concert Listings and Musician's Classifieds. A new issue for a grand New Year. Let's make it a good one! Thanks for readings.

11/20/2019

The December 2019 Holiday issue is on the stands featuring four great artists gracing our cover. First up, Kim Simmonds and his band Savoy Brown talk about their new album, "City Night." Kim hasn't lost any fire in his guitar playing and this CD shows off why he's considered one of the architects of British Blues-Rock guitar. Next up, Irishman Bob Bradshaw discusses his excellent new album, "Queen of The West." If you're not familiar with Bob, you need to check this guy out. Then, Lori Lieberman, the singer-songwriter that penned "Killing Me Softly," made famous by Roberta Flack, weighs in on her outstanding new album "The Girl and The Cat." Lori's story will inspire. Finally, we talk to Paul Murphy about Guitar League, a Central Massachusetts based guitar school & performance club. Want to learn to play guitar? You need to talk to these folks.

Of course there are in-depth CD reviews of Myles Goodwyn (of April Wine), Lighthouse Sentinels, Bluesman Paul Gabriel, Teresa James & The Rhythm Tramps, Keb' Mo', Dede Booth, Black Stone Cherry, Room To Spare, Gino & The Goons, Motorhead and Bobbo Byrnes along with our regular columns, The Time Machine (Frank Zappa), Metronome Madness, Metroscene Club & Concert Listings, Musician's Classifieds and a review of Styx's amazing Orpheum Show on November 9th where they played their astonishing new album The Mission in its entirety along with all their hits.

We also pay our respects to fallen musicians: George Chambers of The Chambers Brothers, "Mambo King" Ray Santos, and Little Feat singer-guitarist Paul Barrere. May they all Rest In Peace. All in all, there's plenty of news and info to keep you busy. Here's wishing everyone a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS! As always, thanks for reading.

10/09/2019

Peter Edward "Ginger" Baker, drummer for the 60's psychedelic rock group Cream, whose hits including “Sunshine of Your Love” and “White Room" died October 6, 2019 at age 80. With his roots in jazz and blues, Baker transformed rock drumming, creating a template for generations of bands to follow.
Born Aug. 19, 1939, in London, Baker had a childhood passion for cycling, and strove to compete one day in the Tour de France. Baker quickly forgot about cycling when he found his talent with drums, and by 16, he was performing with local jazz combos.
Baker built his chops for years, becoming a well-respected member of London's jazz and blues scene while playing in groups including the Graham Bond Organisation. By 1966, when he began thinking of starting his own band, he had a bigger career than either of the bandmates he would recruit for Cream, Eric Clapton and Jack Bruce.
Over the course of two short years and four studio albums, Cream built a powerful sound that would set the stage for countless hard rock and heavy metal bands to follow. But also doing Cream no favors was Baker's heroin addiction. He discussed his addiction with The Guardian in 2013, telling them he tried to quit heroin "something like 29 times." He went on, "I don't have fond memories of it at all. To find you have to do something just to feel normal is not a good road." He would permanently free himself of heroin in the years to come. From the 1980s on, Baker would perform occasionally with bands including Hawkwind and Public Image Ltd., and participate in reunions of Cream and Air Force, and tour with Steve Winwood.
Baker wrote a 2009 autobiography "Hellraiser," and was profiled in two documentaries, "Ginger Baker in Africa" (1971) and "Beware of Mr. Baker" (2012).

Hello friends, fans and players. The October issue has hit the streets with four great artists gracing our cover. First up, Robben Ford talks about his new album "Purple House" as well as his recent collaboration with saxophonist Bill Evans for their new disc "The Sun Room." Then singer-songwriter Matt York weighs in on his new release "Bruisable Heart." It was a pleasure to share the stage with Matt this summer at The Marshfield Fair where he played new cuts from the album. Meanwhile, singer-songwriter-guitarist-model Natalie Joly talks to Metronome about her band The Reckless Hearts while rockin' new comers, The Kapps fill us in with their unique story.
There are CD reviews of Hoban Sanford, Savoy Brown, Sparky (Hey Mark), Coco Montoya, Jason Ricci & The Bad Kind, Magnapop, Katie Dobbins, Tad Robinson, Les Bof!, Lucy/Joey & The Rats and Rusted Bucket Band.
And don't forget our regular columns Metronome Madness, The Time Machine (Aerosmith), Metroscene (Club listings) and Musician's Classifieds. We also say goodbye to rockers Ric Ocasek of The Cars and singer Eddie Money. May they rest in peace.
That should keep you well informed. Grab a copy today... and THANKS for reading!

09/25/2019

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame singer Ric Ocasek, whose Boston band, The Cars, helped define the sound of rock music in the late 1970s and 1980s, passed away from hypertensive and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease on Sunday, September 15th. Pulmonary emphysema was also a contributing factor in Ocasek's death, the medical examiner said.

The 75-year-old was found dead in his New York City apartment in Manhattan's Gramercy Park neighborhood on Sunday by his estranged wife, supermodel Paulina Porizkova. Police said there was no sign of foul play. Ocasek had been at home recuperating after an undisclosed surgery. Ocasek's musical partner and Cars bassist Ben Orr died in 2000 from cancer.
RIP Ric Ocasek.

    Just wanted to share that I am so happy that metronome magazine exists. Also, I have to give a shout out in particular to The Muffs album review. Great music and classy review. Way to go Metronome.
    “Heavy AmericA’s “Easy Killer” is a unique track who’s elements suggest T. Rex and Mott The Hoople, by way of Queens Of The Stone Age. The result is sexy, adrenaline-soaked rock and roll. They’re out for a thrill, and this song is like the theme song to a wild night. This act rocks, and by that we don’t mean in a PG-13 way.” -Skope Magazine
    Thank you Metronome Magazine! "Cary Morin’s music is as expansive and beautiful as the Colorado home he hails from. Proudly displaying his Crow Indian heritage in his songs, Morin’s guitar picking and seasoned vocals vibrate with a spiritual resonance that reflects his vision and appeal. Whether he’s fingerpicking a lilting ballad or rockin’ the electric realm, Morin creates songs of substance that ignite the aural senses while calming the soul. Morin is joined by a handful of players that include Steve Amedee on drums, Paul Benjaman on guitar, Celeste Di Iorio on vocals, Jay Forrest on drums, Jason Larson on vocals, piano & bass, Dexter Payne on clarinet & harmonica, Kim Stone on Bass, Andy Weyl on piano and Lionel Young on violin that all add their substantial talents to this remarkable recording. Songs of note include the tribal album opener, “When I Rise,” the easy going jaunt of “Let Me Hear The Music,” the gorgeously executed “My Memories of You,” the lilting revelation of “Devoted One,” Morin’s alluring rendition of Duane Allman’s “Little Martha,” and the uplifting acoustic version of “Jug in The Water.” When I rise may very well be the best album of Cary Morin’s career and one that everyone should hear. Outstanding!" -Metronome Magazine Boston, January 1, 2018
    Hey Brian could I possibly get a back issue for from February ?
    Great to find you on here!
