Goodbye Gerry Rafferty

By Amy | January 4th, 2011

A sad note for saxophone fans, as Gerry Rafferty, best known for his iconic song “Baker Street,” has passed away at the age of 63. Younger fans unfamiliar with Baker Street may recognize his song “Stuck in the Middle With You” by Gerry Rafferty’s band Stealer’s Wheel (the song was originally a giant hit in 1972, but Quentin Tarantino gave it new life by featuring it in the Reservoir Dogs soundtrack).

Also – if for some reason you haven’t heard Baker’s Street, take a minute now. It’s worth it.

Newest members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

By Amy | December 15th, 2010

This morning, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation has announced their newest inductees into the acclaimed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Alice Cooper Band
Neil Diamond
Dr. John
Darlene Love
Tom Waits

Each inductee was chosen by more than 500 voters of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, and became eligible for the recognition 25 years after the release of their first recording. President and CEO Joel Peresman said today of the five newest members, “They truly represent the variety of people that have defined and continue to influence music and the business of Rock and Roll.”

What do you think? Did the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation get it right? Myriad voices on twitter seem to think Jon Bon Jovi was deserving of the spot, but it would seem the voters spoke otherwise. Maybe next year? Regardless, a big congratulations to the newest artists on the list!

Justin Bieber re-schedules NY State Fair concert

By Amy | August 31st, 2010

Looks like Justin Bieber’s Sunday, 8/29 performance, which was rescheduled for Wednesday, 9/1, will go on Wednesday as planned, much to the relief of everyone who moved their schedules to get back to the State Fair three days later!

From the NY State Fair website:

“The Fair was notified Saturday during the grandstand concert that, due to an illness, Justin Bieber has re-scheduled his Sunday, Aug. 29 concert at the New York State Fair to Wednesday, Sept. 1, at 7pm.

As a result, promoters for Justin Bieber have had to reschedule the Verizon Wireless Arena show in Manchester, New Hampshire, which was scheduled for Wednesday, Sept 1. That show will be moved to Thursday, Dec. 9 in order to accommodate re-schedule the Fair date.

The Fair will honor all tickets issued for Sunday’s show for the new date on Wednesday, Sept. 1. Any ticket that cannot be used should be returned to the point of sale for a refund prior to Wednesday’s show. The refunds will be processed at 10 am Sunday morning.”

BCS predictions already? Not really, but it’s fun to talk about.

By Amy | August 23rd, 2010

With the college year ramping up, it’s only a matter of time before the pennants start flying in earnest. So who are the teams thought to have a chance at next spring’s BCS Championship Game? The Crimson Tide again, perhaps, or the Texas Longhorns? Maybe not.

According to Stewart Mandel of Sports Illustrated, there are plenty of unranked teams with real promise. Arizona State Wildcats could have a good chance this year, thanks to some good transfers and high-calibre players. The UConn Huskies also stand a good chance, as well as the Boston College Eagles, the Purdue Boilermakers and the Navy Midshipmen. Think this will be the year of the underdog? We’d love to hear your opinions over on our Facebook wall!
