Re: “What’s in Store: Chicago Music Store

I was one of the young musicians, just starting out that was allowed to put a small sum of money down (I think it was $20) and make payments long ago. I purchased my first bass, a head and a cabinet from them. I eventually went on to play in bands that were on indie and major labels. I got to tour and play shows with bands I listened to and admired growing up. I no longer play in bands, but I still have the head unit they sold me. Thank you Chicago Store!

Re: “What’s in Store: Chicago Music Store

Man oh man...the stuff they had upstairs in the "attic". Just piles and piles of music stuff. I found my John Lennon style Rickenbacker guitar up there. Still have it. Nice and fixed up.

Love the Chicago Store! They are the spirit of Tucson. I will miss the rafter piled cool stuff, but needs must.

Re: “Many Years, Multiple Lineups

Pena was good but he was never the same after what happened in that van in germany. That is my two cents worth.

Re: “Tucson Perfection

Awesome article. Having worked with Danehy at the AZ Daily Wildcat and Lopez at KTUC makes it even sweeter. Two great great guys.

Re: “Doing Her Thing: Ann Wilson

Ann rules! One of the few people who can cover Stairway to Heaven and not make Robert Plant cringe. Believe me & Monsieur Plant, that is an amazing accomplishment.

Re: “Birthday Blues: Boondocks

Monterrey Court & a lot of the downtown places make facebook events for all the acts they have coming thru. Love it or hate it, it reaches a lot of people, fast...

Re: “Fresh Cut Records: Lathe Cut

AVOID the retards at COSMIC VINYL ( 5 month turn-around for 4 records, zero communication (except to lie about order delays). GARBAGE SERVICE.

Re: “Birthday Blues: Boondocks

If you haven't seen Mitzi Cowell perform at the Boondocks you are in for a real treat. Mitzi is just one of several outstanding local musicians who play great music at this long time venue.

Re: “Birthday Blues: Boondocks

It'd be fun to see it featured in a turn around from Gordon Ramsey.

Re: “Birthday Blues: Boondocks

They need to advertise more. Promote the music scene like Monterrey Court does. The fish fry there is one of the best, if not the best , in town. Yet so few people know about it.

Bang your own drum, louder. Contact all the media and let them know about what's happening at this great spot!

Re: “Miss O'Dell

I looked forward to this book. And then I read it. It's full of inaccuracies on the Rolling Stones 1972 tour. And what really is sad is Chris naming the rock stars she slept with. What's even more disingenuous is remarking that Bianca Jagger was frosty towards her when Bianca joined the tour for a few days in late June. Honey, you were BONKING her husband! You think she couldn't tell? Bianca's brilliant. I could have done without the Kiss n Tell, Miss O'Dell...

Re: “South By

I grew up in Tucson playing music then moved to and played music in Seattle, San Diego, LA, Phoenix, Austin and have now returned to Tucson. I've played SXSW over 11 times from each city I've lived in.

I don't think it's reasonable to say because it's called SXSW there should be more artists from the SW. You have to remember Austin is only 500 miles away from New Orleans. When you live in or travel to Austin it feels more southern than southwestern, but it's still in TX and I think most who haven't been there think of it as the SW. So the name SXSW is more of a play on perception of region.

You also have to remember this isn't the SXSW of 20 years ago. They have built this into a international event, with bands attending from around the world as well as the US. So 14 bands representing Tucson and Phoenix is actually a great representation. I'd rather see 10 or 14 good bands representing the state or region than 35 average bands. Quality over quantity. Now I'm sure there are 35 good bands in the region but again SXSW is a international event and there are only so many slots available. I think the beauty of the event is seeing a small sample of bands from all over the US and world.

Re: “Sands of Time: Giant Sand

Howe is a Tucson classic and a fine true artist.His music has meaning and is interesting to listen to. Totally original. And the lyrics do more than repeat themselves like so many successful music writers write. This says something about the people who listen to his music and about himself . More poetry than product. Thanks Howe.
