Corduroy – Pearl Jam – At the height of their Pearljamness, they sold a million copies of Vitology in a week while still claiming that they were some form of opposition. It was a tough thing, saying a loud nolle prosequi with the world at their feet and fortunately for Vedder’s mental well being it didn’t last long.. but this is what it sounded like – A

Mind Your manners – Pearl Jam – The rowdiest I’ve ever seen a concert was these guys at MSG a long time ago, I thought the floorboards were gonna collapse from the fans pounding their feet. They didn’t have this song then, but if they had it would have fit right in – A

On the third hand, Olivia Vedder must be, what 8 years old now, so I am show she has been freezing it out like crazy though at eight years old her dad is probably still a god like figure. “Daughter” was never a favorite and I see zero reason to change my mind, so there.

The CMJ Festival came about as close to taking over the city as humanly possible, Saturday afternoon on Ludlow Street you could wander from one gig to another all day long. It is one of my favorite times of the year -it’s like Christmas Eve

I am sure I’m not alone in adoring John Newman, just a great disco guy, a grand dance House singer player, more pure talent than Avicii can dream of. Absolutely deserves a # 1 and the only question is will the US fall in line?

The thrill here is Linda Thompson’s new album, except for that song earlier this year “Never A Bride” and it was a killer, we haven’t heard anything new in years. Maybe we will get a tour out of it!!!

Pearl Jam have been well loved and have certainly had their moments, and as far as mainstream rock bands are concerned you can out every Linkin Park on the planet on one side, and they wouldn’t be as good as Pearl Jam, but still, they’re dodgy and half hearted, on record any way
