John Potash‘s ‘Drugs as Weapons Against Us’ At La Luz De Jesus, Sunday October 25th 2015

By Alyson Camus | October 26, 2015

Potash did an impressive amount of research, his 400-page book is riddled with characters and meticulous references, and his lecture was a very disturbing report filled with pictures of musicians in company of high-ranked CIA agents, army reserve colonels… Did you ever wonder why there was a colonel Parker in every photo showing Elvis Presley after he served the army?

Not With The Band: Right Or Left-Handed, Does It Matter?

By Alyson Camus | June 3, 2014

He’d go to the toilet with his guitar, he’d make breakfast with a guitar. In an interview with Dick Cavett, Jimi expressed his, more than disinterest, worries about fame, about praise, about really anything that distracted him from what he was born to do: play the guitar.

By Iman Lababedi | September 26, 2013

Just out of the army, back in the charts, this is Presley, not an album artist, best album: it has the breadth of masterpiece, blues, pop, rock and roll, hits and deep cuts, It sprawls its way on to the charts and Presley, in an alternative universe, was using this as a gate to a future and not a goal post.
