Eddie Money’s Music will Forever be πŸ’²πŸ’²πŸ’², yo

Wikipedia

My very first concert, the July 19, 1980, World Series of Rock at the Cleveland Stadium, also happened to be the very best and most memorable concert I’ve ever attended.

That day was one massive mess of merriment and music…

We Should Be Dancing… Not Dying

With all the constant blood and violence in this constantly bloody and violent nation of mine, a la yesterday’s insane mass killing after a gun-toting asshole goes off his nutty handle during a routine traffic stop, I hardly feel like getting my groove on.

But get my groove on I must or else I will become completely consumed by the constant blood and violence and do nothing more than wallow in a constant state of misery and fear…

Sunday Songs to Spark the Spirit and Summon the Moves of the Dance

If you’re hatin’ on the latest music phenom known as Billie Eilish because you think her fame is a result of entitlement and nepotism in the entertainment industry — Seriously, who had ever heard of the uniquely-styled seventeen-year-old’s low-level acting parents or whatever their L.A. entertainment gigs are before she and her brother became famous? And I’m still not even sure what her brother became famous for. — like so many are, then I sure hope you’re voting in the 2020 presidential election because we have President The Donald’s highly entitled child and child-in-law prancing all around our pretty but petulant planet behaving as presidential advisors and high-level diplomats who…

Hold on.

Deep breath…

Let’s get back to music before it gets all politically ugly up in here.

Sunday Songs to Spark the Spirit and Summon the Moves of the Dance

On the road to Ohio to visit the fam. and jammin’ to songs off of Willis’ Soundcloud stream. This song is an especially groovy road song.

MOOD:   (o|o)

If you haven’t noticed, Willis has the same last name as yours truly.

Yes, he is my son, thank you for asking.

That’s right… you must now pay special attention to the song.

The Spirit of What Remains

While I’ve given up completely on superhero movies, ugh, especially Marvels’, UGH!, I am still a fan of the superhero genre in spirit and I have very fond memories of as a child riding my bike to the local grocery store and spending all the allowance I had just received on the latest Batman, Superman, and Spiderman comic books and, at a penny a piece, a handful of Bazooka bubblegum with its own little Bazooka Joe comic strip on the inside of the wrappers.

The Draught of Naught Troubling

More good stuff from my sons Willis’ and Bobi’s band Aelios* in the form of a music video of their latest release.

You should be able to tell who my sons are because you should be able to tell who the blood brothers are in the video. The third member, Colin Bates, while not a blood brother, he’s a brother nonetheless.

Incidentally, Colin, an all around artistic talent and graduate of Juilliard, collaborated with me on my movie Leave. You can learn more about him and other cast and crew members here.

Incidentally again, my son Bobi’s other band Saving Apollo, just returned from a tour that culminated in them playing SXSW. It was a very successful tour and set them up to now tour with this summer’s Warped Tour. Pretty huge, no?

BTW, if you have enjoyed the video, please take the time to “like” it on youtube and subscribe to their channel and then tell everyone you know, and I do mean everyone, about it.

Is that asking too much?

Probably, but hey, what’s a dad to do?

The Boss Rick Ross

Hope the reports about Big Rick being on life support aren’t true, but wanted to put some positive vibes out there for him just in case.

Here are a few of my favorite vids of his or in collaboration with others.

Be careful, they are explicit and NSFW*
