The Doors at the Bowl: Mick, LSD and a Moth

To play the Hollywood Bowl. For any musician, that has to be a career highlight. The Doors performed in that revered venue in 1968, and Ray Manzarek, in his interview for Qello Concerts, articulated the import of such an occasion.

The Dead at the End of ‘So Many Roads’

It’s not a sexy, round-number anniversary, but I bet Deadheads know that July 9 was the date of the last Grateful Dead concert with Jerry Garcia. That was in 1995, at Soldier Field in Chicago.

Hank Williams, Tom Hiddleston & Me

This week in rock history, Hank Williams made his debut on the live radio show, Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. That was on June 11, 1949, and it says somewhere that he got an unprecedented six encore calls from the audience at the Ryman Auditorium. Must’ve thrown the radio show clear off its schedule.

The Seasons | Stingray Pauseplay

The Seasons formed in Beauport, Quebec in the winter of 2011. The Chiasson brothers Hubert & Julien (vocals & guitars) had a desire to share the collection of hooks and melodies turning in their minds with the world, and so, Julien called up Rémi (drums & percussion) who brought along Sam (bass) and the band was formed.  The chemistry was instantaneous. After a few weeks in their parents' basement, a fully grown batch of original songs was brewed and they realized immediately that they were part of something bigger than themselves.
