Summer social distancing, dining alfresco. Breathe in/breathe out. All'aperto! I'm ready.

Finally! A concept that doesn’t look completely terrifying. Amsterdam has given us a glimmer of hope with this greenhouse dining concept. While concepts like glass tanning boxes were starting to make us feel a little uneasy about the future, these are more aligned to the highly popular, pop-up igl...

Rush - Permanent Waves 40th Anniversary (Unboxing Video)

It’s the 40th anniversary of #Rush’s seminal album Permanent Waves and MusicPlanetRadio.com is happy to see their expansive reissue.

The trio shifted their sound on this album, getting more radio airplay with tracks “The Spirit of Radio” and “Freewill” but also maintained their progressive rock roots. The nearly 10-minute closing song “Natural Science” is divided up into three different sections, changing seamlessly between odd time signatures such as 7/8, 6/8, and 3/4.

The Super Deluxe Edition reissue includes two CDs, three 180-gram audiophile black vinyl LPs, a 40-page hardcover book with reimagined artwork by the original designer Hugh Syme, unreleased photos, and a 12,000 word essay.
Also, this marks the first time the Abbey Road Mastering Studios 2015 album remaster will be available on CD. One of CD’s also contains previously unreleased bonus live tracks from the Permanent Waves 1980 tour from Manchester, England, London, and St. Louis.

You can pre-order the reissue and find out more here. https://www.rushbackstage.com/dept/permanent-waves-40th-anniversary?cp=102112_107415

The release is the band’s first since the passing of legendary drummer Neil Peart who joined the band in 1974, becoming the primary lyricist for years to come. I miss Rush already.

MusicPlanetRadio.com wishing Happy 75th Birthday Weekend to John Fogerty. Fortunate Son!

It took 75 years and it’s a little different than I envisioned. Now on my birthday I get to fulfill my dream playing “Centerfield” in centerfield with my kids on the team. A home run! Hopefully it won't be long until we are able to have baseball back. Until then... “Put me in coach, I'm ready to play!” ⚾️🏟 #fogertysfactory

In ‘Perry Mason,’ Matthew Rhys Plays Defense

Can't wait for this! I wonder who will play DA Hamilton Burger and Lt Tragg? A 21st century Perry, Paul, and Della and that great slow, dramatic theme music. Guilty!

HBO needed an actor to portray pulp fiction’s most successful criminal defense attorney. Rhys, an Emmy-winner for “The Americans,” took the case.

05/25/2020

I'm so excited about my wife's upcoming novel that was inspired when she listened to my conversation with #RobertPlant. He spoke of living in the same area where beloved ‘Lord of the Rings’ author J.R.R. Tolkien resided and how much Tolkien’s theme of good vs. evil and light vs. dark influenced him in Led Zeppelin. That spark was in part responsible for Susan beginning her novel, The Summerlands, here in her office.

It’s a work of metaphysical fiction that speaks to the heart, characters you’ll fall in love with, sumptuous visuals, and glimpses into the realm we belong to when we’re not busy believing we are human. Her book will make you laugh out loud while breathing magic into your soul. I am taken aback by Susan’s gift of writing, especially on her elegant literary debut. Her love for me has changed my life.

Susan's fascinating book The Summerlands, available soon on Amazon in hardback, paperback, eBook and audiobook. Please like her author page Susan Butler Colwell.
