  • Fans turn on country stars pushing gun bans, but conservative John Rich issues (T)

    Proud conservative country music singer John Rich posed a challenge this week to those of his peers in the industry who believe gun bans are the only solution to gun violence: He asked them to think outside of the box and come up with a real solution that’d satisfy everybody. In a video for Fox News, he explained that the problem with simply banning certain guns is that it’d leave families — including his own — less prepared to protect themselves from actual criminals.

    #1 Zero by Audioslave Chris Cornell and the guys from Audioslave killed it with this song. Sounds like a love begin with. Great composition. Great lyrics. Cornell's singing is something close to a perfection and Morello's guitar work is sublime.

    Country Classic: Johnny & Jack - (Oh Baby Mine) I Get So Lonely was recorded in 1954 on the RCA label and went to #1 on the charts. Most country fans know the duo was composed of Johnnie Wright (1914–2011) and Jack Anglin (1916–1963), that Johnnie was married to Kitty Wells and the duo's 25 year career together ended in 1963 when Jack was killed in a car wreck while going to Patsy Cline's funeral.

    Jim Morrison's homage to Los Angels. It used to be a great place. I figured appropriate in light of the devastating fires. Barely 3 months after release Jim Morrison was dead. And that was "The End" of one of the truly great bands of the 60's.

    Roger Daltrey’s new autobiography, Thanks a Lot Mr. Kibblewhite (we’ll explain the title in a moment), is a fun read, but if you’re as diehard a fan of The Who as I am, you can’t help but notice it contains a few missed opportunities. Daltrey is the lead singer for one of the most influential rock bands of the 1960s through the early 1980s, yet fails to comment on some of his group’s most important moments. But he does discuss some of the many squabbles that involved him, his band mates, and his managers. As Dave Marsh wrote in Before...

    The story and origin of the bugle call known as "Taps" can be found in many versions, including the legend of a son fighting on the opposing side of the Civil War from his father. This legend depicts a Northern boy who was killed fighting for the Confederates. His father, Robert Ellicombe, a captain in the Union Army, came upon his son’s body and found the notes to “Taps” in the pocket of the dead boy’s uniform. When Union General Daniel Sickles heard the story, he had the notes played at the boy’s funeral. While this very short version of...

    Perhaps annoyed that “jingoistic” country music is not yet as infested with left-wing promotional politics as other musical and entertainment fields, a major newspaper again used the annual Country Music Association Awards to push gun-control politics onto the industry, Reporter Elizabeth Harris garnered the front page of the New York Times Arts section for her Saturday piece “Singing About Pain, But Not Its Source -- A country awards show may discuss its slain fans, but guns and politics are unlikely topics”: The Country Music Association Awards are supposed to be a celebration of one of America’s enduring art forms, a...

    Musical scholar Ziad Ajjan composed eight poetry and musical pieces from the musical archaeological cuneiform tablet known as "Hymn of Supplication" H6 discovered in Ugarit in the early 20th century. Ajjan composed three musical pieces based on the musical notes in the tablet which dates back to 1400 BC, naming the pieces "Sunrise," "Sunset" and "Holiday in Ugarit." This marks the recording of the oldest music notation in the history of the world. Ajjan said he is still working on the tablet based on information he reached after extensive study and previous experiment, making use of previous research by fellow...
