Laura Talks To Jack Johnson


A while back, I had the opportunity to talk with Jack Johnson. I was told to keep it brief and limit my questions to fit in a 5 minute time frame (which I thought to be ridiculous). Jack was very gracious and gave me 10. Ha! He speaks about his last minute fill-in as a headliner at Bonnaroo, his time spent in Indianapolis riding his bike around the city and recording at The Lodge and […] Read more »

Record Store Day, Hear A Needle Drop


This Saturday, April 19, is one of my favorite days of the year. Record Store Day is a time for music  lovers to gather and tip hats to a dying breed, the independent record store. Almost extinct after years of being gobbled up by chains and abandoned by former patrons favoring internet music shopping, some independent record stores still remain. There is no better feeling for me than to walk into a record store, smell […] Read more »

So You Want To Be A Rock N Roll Star


Recently, I posed the question on Facebook and Twitter, “Who is the best frontman(woman) in rock n roll history?” For some reason, I woke up in ponderance on the subject and had to gather a variety of opinions to satisfy my craving for the truth. I guess I should have asked a more specific version of my question to focus on the live aspect of bands and their front of stage entertainers. When I was […] Read more »

Come on, let’s put Kiss in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

“You wanted the best and you got the best.  The hottest band in the World … Kiss.” It’s been well over 30 years since I took in my first Kiss concert, and I still have the ticket stub to prove it. Numerous other Kiss shows have come and gone for me over the past three decades, but I still get goose bumps every time I hear those words. They crept across my body once again […] Read more »

Here’s to 35 years of Joe Walsh, AC/DC

Isn’t it funny how times slips away? Earlier this week it was brought to my attention that it has been 35 years since the release of two records that played major parts in my overall love of music. In May of 1978, Joe Walsh released But Seriously Folks, while AC/DC, which had enjoyed years of success in Australia, continued its push onto the American rock-and-roll scene with Powerage. I can still remember the first time […] Read more »

Another year over and a new one just begun


Take a chance while you still got the choice -AC/DC As we enter 2013 we’re reminded that the only constant in life is change, but we control the outcome. Too often we we allow ourselves to be dragged down into the mundane existence of day-to-day life and lose focus on the future. Don’t stay suspended in a wicked web of wonder, break free from your self-imposed chains of restraint.  Toss aside the ‘Would’ve, should’ve, could’ve’ […] Read more »

Happy 62nd birthday Tom Petty


When Tom Petty gathered the Heartbreakers and broke free of Florida in the 1970s he helped redesign the ever-changing landscape of rock-n-roll. Petty knew he wanted to be a musician at an early age and for that we can all be thankful.  On his own and with The Heartbreakers he has penned some of the genre’s most recognizable hits of all time. From ‘Breakdown’ to ‘Refugee,’ ”The Waiting’ to ‘Saving Grace’ and numerous others, his music […] Read more »

Jagger still singing for ‘Satisfaction’ at 69


Qucikly.  Name the first rock star that comes to mind. If you said Mick Jagger you are far from alone. For 50 years the Rolling Stones frontman has firmly placed his rubber stamp on stardom in the here-today-gone-tomorrow world of rock-n-roll. The Stones, and in particular Jagger, have been the inspiration for youngsters around the world to grab a guitar and head for the garage with a few of their like-minded buddies. He is as […] Read more »
