        When doing my weekly This Week in Rock History post, I often think about doing a deeper dive into the acts, albums, artists, concerts, events and personalities that I cite, and sometimes working on TWIRH has inspired the Can’t Get It Outta My Head blog entries....

        Fifty years ago This Week in Rock History, I was a part of Wisconsin’s first outdoor rock festival.

        The Sound Storm event took place April 24-26, 1970, on a farm near Poynette, about a half-hour from Madison. But I spent more than thr...

        It was a week ago that I learned that John Prine had died — apparently, the first Maker of The Music to fall victim to the Coronavirus pandemic.

        OK, the name of the PBS special this blog post is about is Joni 75: A Birthday Celebration. But I didn’t see it until Canadian singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell was almost 11 months on her way to age 76.

        I’ve been a big fan of Mitchell’...

        It’s that time of year when costumed creatures show up at our doors asking for treats.

        No, I’m not talking about Halloween. Not that they’re all extravagantly costumed, but the nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Class of 2020...

        Peter Edward Baker left the planet a couple weeks ago — and left it without one of the best rock drummers ever.

        Known as Ginger — because he was one, as in very red-haired — from childhood on, Baker succumbed to heart problems that ha...

        (Resuming my blog post about The Band and Abbey Road.)

        Not surprised that the “Paul Is Dead” hoax helped sell more of the earlier Beatle LPs, but I think Abbey Road would have sold well, regardless. “Something” was a No. 1 s...
