Ringo Starr’s 75th Birthday Celebration At Capitol Records, Tuesday July 7th 2015 Review

By Alyson Camus | July 7, 2015

I arrived almost two hours before the time — and that’s dedication — but the front of the building was already full of people, mostly ‘old’ people, but it is insane to qualify Beatles’ fans of old, these people have kept the fire in their belly, they are still excited to see one of the two Beatles left on earth, and they still believe that peace and love can change the world… it is so refreshing. Call them naïve, call them childish, I don’t care because I am one of them!

That Was The Week Of June 16th, 2014 That Was

By Iman Lababedi | June 24, 2014

A 14 year old boy killed the boy who had bullied him for months while New York fiddled mindlessly. This is such a horrible story it is hard to find the good guys. But the murderers Mom who threw away the cellphone because she sells drugs and thought the cell might have a GPS tracking device is a damn good place to start. Or the Principal who wouldn’t do anything. Or the Police who refused to intervene. You know, there’s enough blame to go round.

When you read the setlist you think, oh OK, two killer Ringo, a new Ringo, Todd, a bit of a snooze and then Ringo again. But when you are there, you have to sit through excruciating versions of “Evil Ways”, “Rosanna” and “Kyrie”. It is deadly.

Active Viewin': rock nyc Concert Picks Week Of June 16th, 2014

IAt the tiny Gramercy Theatre, Saturday June 21st. (see here) Cliff Richard promises an intimate New York City gig to make up for Morrissey canceling the Barclay Center Show Cliff was meant to be supporting. I haven’t seen Cliff for FIFTY YEARS, so it as big as big can get for me. To my mind, the man has had one of the great careers and this is the show of the week at the very least.

By Iman Lababedi | June 14, 2014

With the eagerly awaited big time rock concert for young Ringo and his All Stars at the Beacon Tuesday and Wednesday nights, I thought it might be worthwhile to take a closer at the setlist, a lot of Ringo (including two newbies), plus Rundgren and, ahem, Toto songs

1971: The A+ List

By Steve Crawford | May 15, 2014

1971 was a great year for what we now call classic rock – Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and The Who all released indispensable albums. Boiling down 1971 to 20 A+ tracks was no easy feat – my apologies to the Chi-Lites and the Stylistics, among others.

All Starr(key) To The Beacon

So I got a tix, my best seat for an ex-Beatle, 16 th row orchestra at the Beacon, a great place to see a band as well. There are two dates but I’m going Wednesday, June 18th, 2014 and it has been so long (early 00s) since I’ve seen young(ish) Starkey croaking and charming between other performers playing songs you never ever want to hear again

Must See All Starr This June 2014

Well, I’ve seen em three times and plan to see them this, the (gulp) twelfth version of his All Starrs and here is the line up and besides Rundgren we all know what to expect from this, right? t Steve Lukather, singer Richard Page, keyboardist Gregg Rolie, multi-instrumentalist Todd Rundgren, and drummer Gregg Bissonette. Toto? That’s all starr? Come home, Sheila E all is forgiven.

Ringo Starr Announces All Starr Band Tour

By Helen Bach | February 4, 2014

Would it be safe to say he is the least favored Beatle? I think so, drummers rarely get their props. His All Starr band has been a staple of music, nothing that dynamic nothing that bad just there, almost like a hobby to a formal mega act.
