Re: “Guitar Hero

I never cared for Great White or that "Big Hair" band sound. But I like the story. I grew up at the same time at Santa Rita...And, I participated in those huge desert gathering's. Reminds me of the old days in Tucson.

Re: “Guitar Hero

Would have liked this better if there was a little more subject and a lot less dark and brooding commentary in it, but it is what it is. Robby is a great addition to a sound I've loved for many years. Truly talented and nice guy. Thanks Tuscon..he's someone to be proud of.

A lot of history was made there. Dick will be 80 next year.

Re: “Almost Famous

Been following your writing for quite a few years. Great story. I'd love to see that original People spread and a few pics of you and Doug too. I remember hearing about his death all those years ago and hearing that he was the real writer of their most famous songs and how they treated him. Split my dedication from "them" to "him" although I didn't have to. I did not like any of their follow ups genuinely. But I have a cover shot that I've used time and time again on my FB page and I think it was from your original article. It says "Tomorrow we can drive around this town...let the cops chase us around...the past is gone but something might be found to take it's place...". It's just blue sky and people's hands in the air in a convertible if I'm not mistaken. Anyway...no one really knows but that's about Doug for me. I'm a fan and I don't know how anyone could have saved him from himself but I wish he'd had a chance. You were a great friend to him. I mean it.

Re: “Vintage Vinyl Tucson

Doesn't matter who does it, 'Bald Headed Woman' is still a dog. The Sot Weed Factor just underscored that fact and made it even doggier. Let it serve as a warning to young and new bands: The Kinks and The Who only did it because they had no real choice, being green. naive and under the thumb of their producer, Shel Talmy .

Re: “Noise Annoys

Obama deported around the same amount that Trump is planning on and there's been a nary a peep about it from those that claim they care now.

Funny how "punk rock" is now the abusive alcoholic father that sired all the bastard children that this publication (and I might argue this writer) has loved so dearly as of yet. The fact that none of those vaunted institutions ever took real lessons supplied by "punk" to heart seems completely lost.

As for the "make punk great again" that too goes to the fact that there are lots of idiots running around now sputtering things they have no idea about. "Punk" never went away and never stopped producing great music, because the institutions/reasons for the anger never disappeared. Even if a majority of the public, and yes that includes people who claim to love "punk", aren't paying attention.

Re: “B-Sides: Viva La Vinyl

This is a great young record store that lends itself to live gigs [local & out of town],it is not
some hipster joint where you would be embarrassed to ask for Elton John's "Madman...." lp or the 1st
E.W.&F. "Keep your head to the sky" lp.However,the folks working there know alot about new Genre's
i never heard of .They will find you an old "Rainer Ptacek" or a new "Katterwaul".Wooden Tooth has
kind,stand -up guys who own it and you won't go wrong stoppin' in.I been there...These stores are treasure for minds who crave music.
