  • The Clash's "London Calling" Still Rocks!

    I have been listening to London Calling - the Clash's 1979 breakout album - on my morning drive recently, and wanted to blog about how fresh it still seems after 30 years.

    Chrissie Hynde is back -- and she's spectacular -- in the Pretenders' first studio album in 6 years, "Break Up the Concrete." She hasn't lost her voice or her style! The hard-rocking Hynde, who wrote all the songs, fronts an all-new band consisting of Jim Keltner, Eric Heywood,...

  • "Little Wild One" by Joan Osborne

    " Righteous Love " is one of my all-time favorite albums, so when I read in "People" magazine that Joan Osborne had a 7th album out -- " Little Wild One " -- I made sure the library ordered it. Osborne's music has elements of rock, folk, country, and blues -- so it's...
