Toad the Wet Sprocket – my Music A to Z

Toad the Wet Sprocket was my second favorite band in the 90s. They actually reminded me a lot of U2. They had that same passion and the guitar reminded me of Edge. I saw Toad several times in concert back then and then once a few years ago. I was a bit disappointed with that show a few years ago at [continue reading]

Soundgarden – my Music A to Z

I first saw Soundgarden back in the early 90s at the Baltimore Arena when Superunknown was popular. Then I saw Chris Cornell solo at Rams Head in 2007. In 2010 at Lollapalooza, I saw Soundgarden in their first big show together over a decade. I went it as soon as the gates opened and got a spot on [continue reading]

Rockabilly – my Music A to Z

I love Rockabilly! I think I have always loved it, but didn’t really learn about it until I moved to Memphis. I lived only a couple of miles from Sun Studio, where Rockabilly (and Rock n Roll) was born.

I am not a subscriber of Q magazine or even a regular reader, but what else am I going to write about for a Q topic for this A to Z Challenge. I do buy Q when someone I like is featured – and that’s usually U2. It is quite a good music magazine. Over the years, they have had some [continue reading]

I was watching Happy Days from as early as I can remember – four years old, maybe even three. It was [continue reading]

Olivia Newton-John – my Music A to Z

Olivia Newton-John is my favorite. I have loved her since I was five. She was my first obsession, my first scrapbook.  I discovered Olivia when I first saw Grease and soon had all of her albums. Olivia has a memorabilia shelf along side Elvis and U2. My favorite Olivia Newton-John album [continue reading]

New Kids on the Block – my Music A to Z

My first concert of my life was New Kids on the Block at the Baltimore Arena in 1990 – I was almost 18. (I wasn’t allowed to go to concerts until I graduated high school.) Twenty-three years later I still love the NKOTB! The only difference is back then I was a ‘Danny girl’ and [continue reading]
