Some Musical Odds & Ends For Spring

Here are a few musical links you may find interesting.

  • A really fine, young band from Austin, The Wild Feathers, gave The Vinyl District an interview in January 2014. You can read it here.
  • 60 Minutes and Vanity Fair have teamed together to come out with their 2014 music poll. It covers everything from how good or bad today's music is (Guess what? It stinks), to which band you would want to go back in time to see, to the sexiest musical instrument to play. Here are the results.
  • A very intelligent music blog, Any Major Dude With Half A Heart, posts a monthly In Memoriam series that is so popular that when it's publisher tried to end it a couple of years back due to time constraints his readers begged him to carry on. The blog compiles and honors anyone in the music business who passed away the month before, from the most famous to the very obscure. It's a must read.
  • In 2007, recent Rock Hall of Fame inductee, Daryl Hall, began recording full length concerts with guests he invited to his home and posts them online. You can see guest shots by Ray Manzarek, Nick Lowe, Todd Rundgren, and partner John Oates as well as newcomers K.T. Tunstall, Diane Birch, and a whole lot more. Listen to all of them at Live at Daryl's House.
  • From Rolling Stone Magazine: Hear Neil Young and Crazy Horse play "Cowgirl in the Sand" live in Japan way back in 1976.
  • Finally, we'll end with one of Bloggerhythms' own highlights from the past. It's a two part article about former Poco frontman and Buffalo Springfield member, Richie Furay, including an online interview the former rock star so graciously gave to us. Please take a look at part one and part two for some very interesting rock history and a whole lot more.

That's all for now. We'll be back soon.
