ZZ Top - Blue Jean Blues - Grand Prairie, TX 2007

Happy birthday to a guitar hero, style icon and a guy who always sings with a bit of a wink and nod... Billy Gibbons is 70 today! Here he is burnin' cool onstage with his 1975 classic "Blue Jean Blues."

Sun Is Still Shining

Today marks the 50th anniversary of an album that was central to my developing love of music as a child. The Moody Blues' fifth album, "To Our Children's Children's Children" was released on this day in 1969. Though it wasn't their biggest seller, it remains my all-time favorite album by the Moodies, and perhaps their most cohesive album of their late 60s psychedelic period.

Joe Walsh "Walk Away"

Couldn’t let the day pass without a birthday shoutout to the incomparable Joe Walsh, who turns 72 today. He’d still be a legend even if he had never joined the Eagles. He’d probably have less money, though.

Genesis - The Carpet Crawlers

On this day in 1974, Genesis released the most ambitious album of their Hall of Fame career, "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway." It was also the final Genesis album to feature founding member Peter Gabriel on lead vocals; Phil Collins would step out from behind the drumkit to take over that role following Gabriel's departure.

He returns from his mixed-up memories to the passage he was previously stuck in. This time he discovers a long carpeted corridor. There is lambswool under my...

Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison Set 2020 Stadium Tour

Never again, said Mötley Crüe. Oops!

(Looks like R.E.M. is still champion of bands who sincerely promised not to get back together, and haven't.)

“There is no amount of money that would ever make me do it again because I have such pride in how we’re ending it,” Nikki Sixx said in 2014

Gene Clark - From A Silver Phial

From the “shoulda, coulda, woulda” files: the late Gene Clark would have turned 75 today. This founding member of The Byrds released several incredible albums after departing The Byrds, none of which achieved much commercial success in spite of their quality. Start with “No Other” and go from there.

Little Feat’s Paul Barrere Dead at 71

Sad news for one of rock’s finest-ever live bands. Longtime Little Feat guitarist Paul Barrere has passed at age 71. Though not a founding member, he joined them in 1972 and has been a part of the band ever since.

He joined the funky roots-rock band in 1973

I Feel Like A Bullet (In The Gun Of Robert Ford)

On this day in 1975, Elton John released an album that's been largely overshadowed by his other work of the Seventies, "Rock of the Westies." This was a standout track.

Those Were The Days

He may well have been rock’s finest drummer. And I’ll step on a pile of Rush, Led Zeppelin and Who records and make this claim. But you’d never want to say that to Ginger Baker’s face as he considered himself a “jazzer.” RIP to a true original, Ginger Baker, who has passed at the age of 80.

The Cars "You're All I've Got Tonight"

Growing up listening to Boston radio stations like the dearly departed WBCN meant a healthy selection of hometown heroes The Cars on the radio. If there was one song that I always would CRANK on a hot summer day on the car radio with the windows down, it was this one. It never sounded better than in those moments. I still crank this one loud. RIP Ric Ocasek.

Yes - And You And I

On this day in 1972, Yes released their fifth album, "Close To The Edge." Not only is it regarded as one of their masterpiece albums, but it also represents a high watermark for the progressive rock movement of the 1970s. A longtime favorite of mine!

Starship - We Built This City (Official Music Video)

Awful song or guilty pleasure? The debate rages on, but on this day in 1985, the band formerly known as Jefferson Airplane and then Jefferson Starship officially achieved liftoff as just "Starship" with the release of their "Knee Deep in the Hoopla" album. The album spawned numerous hits, most notably the polarizing "We Built This City."

Rush - Subdivisions (Official Music Video)

On this day in 1982, Rush released their "Signals" album. The leadoff track is one of my favorite Rush songs of the 1980s portion of their career.

Happy Leif Erickson Day
Hey Leif you’re a good dj. You’re very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. I only have two points that rankle me and not necessarily you. 1. Your 6 am Sunday morning with the MS chick has just completed its third consecutive Sunday. Yikes 2. I listen to 107.5 @ home and I have you tuned in on my 🚌 and I still haven’t heard the song “Bat Out of Hell”. I notice you rarely deviate from your playlist.
