Note to my readers

So, where the hell have I been? Well, I just got hired as the sports editor for a small paper in East Alabama, the Alexander City Outlook.

So, new posts are going to be few and far between. But, still stop by frmo time to time, because you never know when I'll feel like ranting. Until next time.

The 100 Must Own Rock & Roll Albums

Break out the hallucinogens, it's time for some Pink Floyd.

Dark Side of the Moon


My personal favorite Floyd album. Great production, this is how albums should tie together. Plus, there's that cool Wizard of Oz thing too.

The Wall


Epic. OK, I don't there's anything else that needs to be said.

Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd


Because, unbeknownst to most, Floyd did more than just the two above albums. This is a solid collection of their hits, hand picked by the band.

The 100 Must Own Rock & Roll Albums

Hey, I'm alive. Just been dealing with a lot of bullshit dealing with my degree. But, I'm done and my degree is secured. So, back to life and the list.

Today, it's all about the gods of guitar.

Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix


Best of the best here, plain and simple. Good listen for those times when you just need to chill out.

Live at Woodstock


It's Hendrix. Live. I don't need to explain this, just listen.

Unplugged


This one is just amazing. The things Clapton can do with a six string. The arrangements are majestic, just listen to how he handles Layla.

The Cream of Clapton


He was pretty good with the guitar plugged in too. This one has all his stuff from the Derek & the Dominoes and Cream days too.
