Joe Satriani - Strange Beautiful Music, a Musical Memoir

Joe's new book, as the title suggests is not a true biography, it's more of a biography of his music. As much as I love Joe's music, and it is a HUGE part of the soundtrack of my life, I do wish it was more of a true story of his life. Read more...

Scorpions Unplugged

I know the idea of an MTV Unplugged album is pretty out of date, however this is one of the best that the franchise has ever assembled. Read more...

Adrenaline Mob

In my youth it was not uncommon for me to buy albums based on a cool album cover, and this one reminds me of something I would have obtained. These days great art work is more of a bonus than a feature. However the real reason to buy music is and always has been for the songs. Read more...

My Last Fight - Darren McCarty

Red Wings fans will love McCarty's book, as most of us can't resist re-living the glory days. My Last Fight however is not really a book about # 25, but much more of a book about Darren McCarty the person.

As a member of the media, and someone who has covered the wings in the locker room and even on the road on occasion during my career, I was well aware of Mac's drinking problem, and I'm proud of the way he faces his demons head-on and opens his heart and soul in this book.

Halestorm: ReAniMate 2.0

Halestorm's new 6 song EP is pretty strong for an all covers albums. It opens with a most interesting choice of songs; the last track on the 1977 Judas Priest album Sin After Sin. I never expected anyone to make a cover of "Dissident Aggressor" and would probably have bet that nobody in Halestorm was even aware of that song. Lzzy nails the powerful vocals and I'm sure she will get Rob Halford's blessing when he hears this version which recreates the dark energy of the original. Read more...

Birth, School, Metallica, Death

When it comes to a good biography I'm only looking for a couple of things; I'd like to learn and be entertained. Read more...
