If you were fortunate in 1983 to discover the first full-length album Murmur from Athens GA-based R.E.M. , you probably realize that it sounded unlike anything else at the time,and precious little ever since except maybe their followup Reckoning.Over the next four years and five albums on indie label IRS,Michael Stipe,Peter Buck,Mike Mills,and Bill Berry made some of the smartest,quirky,angular rock of any American band...(more)

After experiencing YES for my third tour, performing in the round on a revolving stage in Fall 1978 in Memphis, I distinctly recall thinking that this was the best way to see any band larger than a quartet. YES had always consisted of musicians…

In 1978 my pick for album of the year was Bruce Springsteen's Darkness on the Edge of Town,which no doubt topped many such lists that year.Second by a gnat's eyelash on my list,however,was Blue Valentine by Tom Waits,an album which I can cherish easily for another thirty years...(more)

In the Fall 1988, Kansas had reunited most of the original band and they were eager to talk, plus key man Kerry Livgren, who had retired from touring in order to become a Georgia farmer, had parked his John Deere and picked up his Les Paul to do some Contemporary Christian solo albums, so suddenly he became available as well to talk about "Leftoverture", the 1976 four million seller from Kansas.

(cont)... As The Who's recognized Quadrophenia auteur , Townshend has assessed their almost half-century of musical creation and found it to be good . Pete is a delightful , witty , thoughtful , and refreshingly honest conversationalist who can easily and effectively examine The Who's epic 1973 opus through a slightly-detached , objective eye which only the passage of time , and maturity , can provide . -Redbeard

(cont)..."And I got to lie still, and I stopped being a rock star. I stopped working, I stopped striving, I stopped everything. And I was completely still . And being still is the best thing you can do for yourself. I mean it. We just don't do enough of it in our lives , and it is so important. And I just laid still, and I finally got to the point where my brain stopped chattering. It stopped waking up and wandering, and I started dreaming again. I started dreaming of what I wanted the rest of my life to look like ." RB: "With the diagnosis of breast cancer, you still could make plans for the future even before you completed chemotherapy and radiation ?" ME:" Oh my gosh , I want the rest of my life ! No no no, I'm not done at all, I'm just beginning . And with that new excitement, I started looking at what I had created , what I'm creating now, and what I wanted to create. I started reading like crazy , I started reading everything from cosmology to quantum physics , string theory, agnostic gospels, Buddhism, everything ! And everybody is saying the same thing , this simple thing : that we're all here to create, to be happy, and to love. You know, give me the peace signs and all the gooey stuff, but that's really what I started feeling.And when I started thinking ,'Oh my gosh , I want to write a new album ' , I had this joy behind it . I had this great desire to put my experience down and to ignite people and light 'em up and say , 'Look , you can do this too . We don't have to do it this way '. " RB: What attitudes and behaviors should we all look at ? ME: Today , right now, we have a choice .We have marketed ourselves into a little bitty corner of sound bites and fast food , and we think we can sustain ourselves on this . We think we can go to McDonald's every day , eat in our car , and be fine . We can just download that one little song that sounds just like that other song . They're little pieces . If you want to live your life on just little pieces of life , okay , that's your choice . But I think that there's a large bunch of us who really want more , who really do believe that the best food comes from the earth ; that it grows up out of the dirt ; and then you eat it and it nourishes you . And that music is made channeled through an artist . They craft it , they put it down in a certain place , and you can enjoy it for three minutes , or an hour , or you can even go to a live concert and enjoy it for three hours . Imagine giving yourself that time ! But I think our society needs to take a breath and step back , and get off this wheel that we're on of faster , faster , faster . I do ."

William Martin Billy Joel has sold more albums in the U.S. than any pop/rock singer except for Elvis Presley. Superstar musicians in that rarified league ( and many more only pretenders to it ) always surround themselves with gaggles of managers,…
