This past Thursday, my mom, dad, grandmother, Blaine and myself ventured out to the Sanderson Centre in Brantford to see The Irish Rovers play. My grandmother (whom in Hungarian I refer to as Nagymama, Nagy for short) loves Irish music, and despite her and my Nagypapa’s strong Hungarian roots, the two of them saw The … More Are you familiar with The Irish Rovers?
I said in yesterday’s post that today’s would again cover some very incidental facts affiliated with the musical genre known as rock and roll, and here we are. I try to keep my posts around 300 words or less so as not to lose anyone’s attention, therefore I won’t be including each and every fact … More … and some more absolutely random rock and roll facts
I’ve mentioned once or twice here on my blog that it can be a tad difficult at times to try and brainstorm ideas for a post without being redundant or writing on a topic I have already. Considering I post to my blog daily, it makes sense; while I like to think I’m slightly creatively … More Check out some purely arbitrary rock and roll music facts
Anyone who is a fan of Freddie or Queen will probably read the title of this post, think to themselves, yes, let’s, and then carry on with their day. I say this because Freddie Mercury is arguably one of the few people to have lived that can simply have their name read aloud and garner … More Let’s hear it for Freddie Mercury
The musical genre known as rap is one that really gets me going, but I should probably stipulate I have a handful of artists I listen to, and none of them are new to the game. Eminem, N.W.A., The Notorious B.I.G., Snoop and 50 Cent are my favourites, and their work is the best in … More Have you seen ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’?
If you consider yourself a country music fan and haven’t yet heard of Mr. Kip Moore, then boy, do I have a discovery for you. If you ask me, this man is an incredibly underrated musician, and if you’ve been sleeping on him and his sound, allow me to be your alarm clock, blaring loud … More Let’s hear it for Kip Moore
Kip Moore, for anyone who may be unfamiliar with the name, is an American country singer and songwriter. If you haven’t heard of him, don’t stress too much; from my own observations, I would wager that, sadly, a lot of folks don’t know about Kip, and the reason I use the term sadly is that … More Let’s hear it for Kip Moore
When I sat down to write this post, I couldn’t help but note that the song Unchained Melody by The Righteous Brothers was playing via the radio in the other room. I’d reckon the majority of folks are familiar with this tune as it is a classic love song, but to me, it has a … More What are your favourite songs?
I wouldn’t exactly consider myself a football fan. I don’t mind the sport, and I’ll occasionally watch games with my dad as he played for the University of Guelph and is a fan of the game. I don’t really understand all of the ins and outs of the game, however, which is why I can’t … More Did you watch the Superbowl halftime show?
Classic rock is my preferred music genre of choice and has been for quite some time now. In my own humble opinion, classic rock embodies everything great music should encompass, hence why a lot of the classics from this era will prevail within music for, I hope, many generations to come. We cannot let this … More How well do you know your rock and roll?
Music really is an incredible thing. It has the power to unite us, or divide us, depending on someone’s music preferences, and it serves as the perfect muse for most of us going about our days. I thought it might be fun to share with all of you some of my favourite songs of all … More What are some of your favourite songs?
I am, without a doubt, an absolute sucker when it comes to getting songs stuck in my head. Moreover, it isn’t usually as though I mentally go over the entirety of a song’s lyrics in my head; rather, it’s the same one or two lines, over and over, until I have the urge to rip … More Can’t get a song out of your head? It could be a good thing
Not too long ago, my sister and I were chatting about underrated country musicians. Eric Church came up and we agreed he is one of the most overlooked musicians in the country music realm, and I’m really not too sure why; he is an incredibly talented musician and performer, and I’d pick his music over … More Profile: Eric Church
Music is something pretty well all of us enjoy. Regardless of our preferred genre(s), it is relatively safe to say that just about all of us have listened to music at some point in time, and for those of who don’t, I find it a tad weird, but no judgment. While most of us enjoy … More Yes, learning music is good for your brain
I’ve been meaning to get around to purchasing a portable speaker for myself for quite some time now. Unfortunately, procrastination has reared its ugly head as I’ve been relying on borrowing my sisters speaker whenever I’m in need of it, but now that I am in the process of renovating a house, I figured it … More In need of a portable speaker? Look no further
On November 13, a little bit of humanity was restored when AC/DC released their newest album titled Power Up. Being their 17th studio album and their 16th international album, there has been a lot of anticipation for this musical masterpiece to become available, especially considering they haven’t produced an album since 2014. Featuring the combined … More Praise for AC/DC’s ‘Power Up’
Rock music is, without a doubt, my preferred genre of music. More specifically, classic rock that originated in the 60s and continued to the early 90s, and I am pretty committed to keeping these phenomenal tracks alive within my own generation and hopefully future ones as well. I have my favourites when it comes to … More Praise for AC/DC
If you’re a classic rock fan, it’s relatively safe to assume you’re familiar with the name Mick Jagger – the man is a rock legend, and as the lead singer for The Rolling Stones, his name is one that is highly recognized across the globe. As a fan of The Stones and Mick himself, I … More Profile: Mick Jagger
I’ve made my love for electric guitar and classic rock quite apparent here on my blog. There is something so pure and enthralling when an electric guitar sings, and my appreciation for the instrument is something I struggle to put into words. On the topic of electric guitar, who better to discuss than Mr. Jimmy … More Profile: Jimmy Page
A few days ago, my mom, dad and I made a trip to Cleveland, Ohio, to get away for a few days. We weren’t entirely sure of how exactly we were going to fill our days while we were there, but one thing was certain; we were going to be paying a visit to the … More Yes, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is worth seeing
When the concept of wireless headphones was first introduced by Apple, I recall thinking to myself how innovative the idea was. Being someone who works on a farm, listening to music can be tricky and also hazardous when you’re using a piece of machinery and have a wire dangling down your front. I thought wireless … More Want AirPods but not the price? Get these instead
Electric guitar, to me, is one of the best sounding instruments in existence. I’m not exactly sure what it is about an electric guitar that gets me so riled up, but I can honestly say no other instrument pumps me up like an electric guitar does. With an electric guitar comes a talented player. One … More Profile: Slash
I’ve always been a fan of AC/DC, but as of late, I’ve been on a bit of an AC/DC kick, if you will. I’m the type of person who thoroughly explores a new interest that presents itself in my life. Since getting Spotify Premium, I’ve been listening to a whole lot of the band’s music, … More Profile: Angus Young
I’m optimistic you read the title of this post and immediately connected the reference to AC/DC’s song. If you didn’t, that’s okay. I’m not here to judge. Rock music isn’t for everyone, but it certainly is for me. Since purchasing a Spotify premium membership, I’ve had the opportunity to explore my preferred genre of music … More For those about to rock, I salute you
Having access to a great selection of music is something I take rather seriously. I’m not someone who regularly listens to the radio; in fact, 90 per cent of the music I listen to comes from my phone, the songs being ones I’ve chosen and downloaded myself. I’ve gotten kind of bored with iTunes, and … More Is Spotify Premium worth the money?
On Sunday evening, my mom and I ventured to Toronto to see Queen with Adam Lambert at the Scotiabank Arena. I had been looking forward to this concert since we purchased the tickets before Christmas, and rest assured I was anything but disappointed. My mom and I actually had tickets to see these guys two … More Queen + Adam Lambert: a show of a lifetime
It’s rather apparent within my blog posts that I am a huge fan of classic rock music. I often say I was born into the wrong generation as I firmly believe rock music throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s is the pinnacle of the genre and likely won’t be matched, let alone topped anytime soon. … More Profile: Guns N’ Roses
I mentioned a while ago that I’ve taken it upon myself to learn how to play the acoustic guitar. Learning anything unfamiliar is challenging, but musical instruments are in a league of their own, in my opinion. I had never so much as plucked a string on a guitar before my boyfriend got me a … More My tips for learning guitar
Back in December, I created a post describing some of my favourite tunes and the reasoning as to why they’re my favourite. All of us have songs that are near and dear to our hearts, and it’s interesting to learn why certain songs resonate deeper with us than others. Since my previous post listed only … More The power of song: part two
On Thursday evening, my mom, dad and I saw a Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR) cover band, presented by the Classic Albums Live Series. The concert was at the Sanderson Centre in Brantford, and the three of us attended the show with a few of my parents’ friends. Classic Albums Live “takes classic albums and recreates … More Classic Albums Live Series: Creedence Clearwater Revival
