Edge of Heaven

the edge of heaven,  feel the potential, inside the gates,  it’s even better and eternal, those who find the path, stay on it, there are those who try to persuade otherwise, heaven does not exist and it’s only a dream, what love have they shown, usually none, heaven exists for those who love,   the story of the ancient scriptures,  very real, what’s a little hassle,  life eternal awaits you, amen…there are many wines, good ones are rare, pure loving people, are like those rare wines, when you find one, you’ll never be satisfied with anything less, amen…


what is love? (baby, don't hurt me)

as “Twilight” commences in the background, for lack of anything more adult to watch, i see the fire in Bella’s eyes on the not-quite-black-and-white set. and the smoldering weird intense stares from Edward’s impossible golden eyes. 438 more words


Henley and Stripes or: Not Much Else (RS pt 12)


Last 10 were pretty decent, let’s see how this one shapes up!!

#390 – Elephants by White Stripes. You can’t watch any sporting events without hearing “Seven Nation Army.”  There’s a reason, too.   2,029 more words

How’s your week going?  As for me, well, I’m standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona… in spirit, anyway!  Here to smooth over any rough edges for us are the Eagles performing Take It Easy. 282 more words


Unsung Heroes of Rock: Danny Kortchmar


I haven’t posted a piece on an unsung hero of rock ‘n’ roll lately but guitarist Danny “Kootch” Kortchmar certainly fits the bill.  I first became aware of Danny back in the seventies through his work with Jackson Browne and James Taylor (you’ve no doubt heard his work even if you didn’t know it was him) but pretty soon his name was popping up in the credits on lots of music I was devouring at the time.   279 more words

Rock Music

Victim of Self-Love

I like the Eagles; I’ve always liked the Eagles.  “Take It Easy,” “Wasted Time,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “Tequila Sunrise,” “Desperado,” and, yes, “Hotel California” are great songs no matter how often I’ve heard them or strummed them on my guitar, and the band epitomizes the jaded glories of 1970s California rock:  denim ‘n’ dope, cocaine ‘n’ cowboys, laid-back and burnt-out – that’s the Eagles, and right on. 545 more words


Real Life Rock Top 10 (09/89)

1. Don Henley, The End of the Innocence (Geffen)
THIS ALBUM I really do wish Don Henley would stop addressing all his songs to the same hapless frail Cat Stevens so gently sneered at in “Wild World.” If you listen to the title tune more than once (and if you listen to the radio for more than 10 minutes you will), you might catch just a hint of rape… 626 more words
