Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

So let's see... we've been under stay-at-home orders here in Chicago for what, two weeks maybe? Maybe a little less? I admit I've been able to "go out" in terms of being the person who goes out and does the shopping. But it's odd, strangely quiet, very ghost-town like when I do. I don't like knowing...

Re: Coronavirus: How ya doing?

So far, we're doing as best as we can. My wife is (as of this writing) actually in the hospital for cellulitis in her leg that they haven't been able to resolve using oral antibiotics. That means my 16-year old son and my 12-year old daughter and I are home with the cats. We're making do, but we mis...

Re: Best of the Decade... Share yours!

I'm not gonna even pretend that I've listened to all the music that I should have; I'm way behind. I *do* know that I have always been a great "cheerleader" for the bands and sounds I like the best. Here's the ones I highly recommend to you, the cultured listener who has impeccable taste: Hushdrops ...

Re: Entirely new test thread

Heard any good new records? Actually, yeah! What I've heard of the new Wyldlife sounds awesome. Tangleweed has a great new one. I just won a download of the new Wabash Cannonballs album, I can't wait to hear. They sound a bit Stones-y crossed with the Georgia Satellites. Methinks GloNo will hafta i...

Re: Entirely new test thread

I've been good! Been getting into a lot of older music like Mott The Hoople, Spirit, Jo Jo Gunne, that sort of thing. Life is good, work is good, family is good, can't really complain.

What about you? How are things?

Kevin Junior is gone; long live Kevin Junior

Many moons ago, Glorious Noise helped to throw a benefit concert to help Kevin Junior of the Chamber Strings. Today, Kevin left us. The musical legacy that he left behind cannot be quantified in terms of beauty, and by all accounts he was a really nice guy. He will be missed sorely. Thank you Kevin,...
