The term genius is a term that should not be use casually; however, it is
the term that can be best used to describe the founding member and
guitarist from the band Boston Tom Scholz.
Tom Scholz was born on March, 10, 1947 in Toledo, Ohio. At the
age of five or six, Scholz made his first powered toy boat from scratch
and from there, he moved up to airplanes.
At the age of twelve, he built his first electric motor. “It was very
exciting, even more…

It is an album that fired the first shot across the bow and arrow
that for me forge a love affair with not only hard rock and heavy metal,
but rock and roll in general. The album in question is Iron Maiden’s of
the “number of the beast “

This is one of the finest books that I have read in a long time. This book is
fascinating and doesn’t let up. Alan Paul’s well documented history warts and all
on the Allman Brothers Band is a fascinating and reverting account told by not
only the band members but by the people that have been a…

Five Guys is a traditional old fashion burger establishment with its
headquarters located in Fairfax County Virginia just outside of Washington D.C. I

Queens, New York.
The service was very friendly and the meat was juicy and delicious and the

oil. The staff was very friendly and gave good customer…

I now produce a radio show named Crystal Cavern which runs on Hamilton Radio & Q Star Radio. The owner of Hamilton Radio Gene Pierro announces it for me, I tend to move around a lot. My concept with this show, and so far so good, is to select a track from an Independent artist, ask them what mainstream artist or track has influenced them and have that played directly after them.

am nothing. However, I am finicky when it comes to rock and roll, not all rock and
roll for me is good. At 43 years of age, there are two styles of rock and roll that
have come two defined me of who I am as a person and the…

Jimi Hendrix is an American Master. A musician of the 20th century, he has
earned his place among the iconic masters of Bob Dylan, Duke Ellington and Elvis
Presley. Forty-two years after his death, his music and his image is still felt to this
day with a new generation of rock fans. The recent documentary Hear My Train

Billy Gibbons and Stevie Winwood. …
