By Ray McDonald Eric Clapton sounds tired. Talking to “Rolling Stone” Magazine, the 67-year-old guitar legend says he plans to stop touring once he hits 70. Eric says he still loves to perform, but the rigors of traveling – such as dealing with immigration officials and security checks – is proving too much. I can […]

By Katherine Cole They’ve been together for years and years (minus a  5 year split), but the Stone Temple Pilots have parted ways with lead singer and founding member Scott Weiland.  The band released the news in a terse, one line press release on Wednesday, saying simply “Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially […]

By Eric Felten More than a few have commented on just how strange it was that the live pit orchestra at the Oscars last night was performing not in the actual theater, but from down the road at Capitol Studios. As one might expect from Capitol (where such great — and great-sounding — recordings as […]

And The Little Gold Guy Goes To…

By Ray McDonald Sunday, February 24 marks the 85th edition of the Academy Awards – now officially re-branded as “The Oscars.” The origins of that name, which attached long ago to the statuette awarded winners, are contested. Legendary actress Bette Davis claimed she gave the little gold guy the nickname “Oscar” because she said  it […]

The other side of love …

Posted February 18th, 2013 at 9:53 pm (UTC+0)

By Katherine Cole OK, enough with the hearts and flowers. If you were anywhere near a newspaper, television or radio last week, you were probably made aware of the St. Valentine’s Day holiday — the most sickly sweet day of the year. And while many radio shows turned your stomach with songs of undying love […]
