Dirty Heads Send Smoke Rings Into the San Diego Sky

Dirty Heads Send Smoke Rings Into the San Diego Sky

Jared Watson and Dustin Bushnell created something incredibly unique in 2006, and ever since I first heard the song “Lay Me Down” on the radio, I knew I loved their sound.  That song is a modern day Bonnie and Clyde story featuring a chorus sung by Rome from Sublime, but the music captures the brain […]

Upright Man Debuts Unique Style in Self Titled Debut Album

Indie Rock has an interesting connotation to most people, and the term has different definitions depending on whom you talk to.  If you talk to the three men behind Upright Man, you would probably get a different answer from each of them as well.  Aidan Dolan (Guitar/Vox), Nick Katz (Bass/Vox), and Max Yassky (Percussion) have […]

Martha Davis & The Motels – “If Not Now, Then When”

If you came of age in the 80’s, you know the song “Only The Lonely.”  The smash hit song sent hopeless romantics into a fury every time a Rock Jock spun the #9 single over the airwaves.  This song got some serious airtime, and was followed by another hit single, “Suddenly Last Summer,” the next […]

Nostalgia turns to New Memories with Collective Soul

Nostalgia turns to New Memories with Collective Soul

Collective Soul was my High School.  Their breakthrough album, “Hints Allegations and things left unsaid,” was a staple in every DJ’s arsenal at every dance during the 90’s.  They were supposed to be a one-hit-wonder, according to every jock on radio at the time, and Ed Roland made no bones about that on stage tonight […]

Warrant – Hitting “Louder Harder Faster”

If you’re any kind of rocker you’ve probably sung the words ‘’She’s my Cherry Pie…” many times over the years, some times even when completely unnecessary.  Warrant’s second studio album by the same name of the hit single rocketed up the charts and made the band pretty famous, until the grunge scene took over the […]

16-year-old Anthony Cullins (a.k.a. The Fallbrook Kid) is just now able to drive a car by himself, but he’s been driving the hearts (and ears) of Southern Californians for almost his entire life!   Hmm…I wonder if that’s why the title of his first solo album is “Hittin’ All Cylinders”…or was is that just coincidence?  Either […]
