Currently made up of Jordan Raine on Vocals, Guitar; Wesley Nickel on Keyboards; Ty Badali drums and bassist Andrew Beck, the quartet has been in existence since 2008.

    Photos & Story by Scott A. Smith Remember way back when, when Steely Dan ignored the road, treating the word “tour” like a big, glowing slab of Kryptonite? Back in the mid- and late-1970s, Steely Dan’s creative nucleus, Donald Fagen (keyboards, vocals) and Walter Becker (guitar, bass, vocals), showed extreme favoritism to the recording studio, where they meticulously built still-great-sounding, jazz-rock LPs such as 1975′s “Katy Lied,” 1976′s “The Royal Scam” and the Grammy Award darling from ’77, “Aja.” Back then in…

Portnoy’s latest post-DT project is The Winery Dogs, a powerhouse of a trio that magically marries Superman-like instrumental abilities with a disciplined focus on the song. Also featuring bass guru Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, David Lee Roth) and singer-guitarist Richie Kotzen (Mr. Big, Poison), The Winery Dogs showed how to be hard-hitting aggressive in sound without shoving melody away from the…

I walked toward the light, when I should've gone the other way, I said yes when I should've said chill and deal. So what's the result of all of these poor decisions?

I am honoring the memory of my wife and best friend, Karen Barrett-Lopez (aka The Brunette), who I lost this past June to a severe asthma attack. A true classic rocker, Karen loved this group and especially their frontman Roger Daltrey as exhibited in the sidebar at the bottom. Triumphs of the mid 60's to today. What's your favorite Who tune?

To look deep within ourselves is to confront blank passages and confusion, but to admit these obscurities without engaging their accompanying emotionality would be self-defeating. The slow, imprecise work to unpack, at least partially, what at first seems like empty space is how we uncover fragments of ourselves to be aligned and realigned. These fragments are not answers, and they’re not obvious, but there’s a comfort in at least laying out the pieces. Will To…

Dick had a huge heart, which is perhaps why it gave him so much trouble, it was simply too full of love, of music and life. His creativity and passion will live on forever in the legacy he has left for us, in his music and his words. We have so much of him to celebrate. Dick was prolific not only in the tangible realm of what we can see and hear but in the boundless energy of his spirit, which will never die. He was a fighter, but in the end his…

    Children — the youngins, if you will — can be so desperate for attention sometimes. You can’t get a moment’s peace before one intrudes with their shrill, breathless voice to say something of little-to-no value. They’re incessant, incorrigible. But look, they’re just youngins, they’ll learn to keep their mouth shut like the rest of us one day! For now, all you can do is be calm and patient, showing the bare minimum of interest, an absentminded nod or an “uh huh,” because, let’s face it, they don’t know the difference anyway.

    In this Rewind, we take a look at  The Turtles’ “Happy Together”. Talk about a song that found new life: The Turtles “Happy Together” had been pitched and rejected a dozen times when it got to the Turtles. It had been pitched enough times that the demo tape was worn down. Thankfully the Turtles recorded the song because it went to number one for three weeks in 1967. It was also successful enough to knock the Beatles “Penny Lane” out of the top spot during it’s chart run. Trivia: Anytime Turtles band member Mark Volman played the song on TV. He would “play” a…
