Let’s Settle This!

OK. Let's settle this once and for all. A few days ago, the co-host from the Literary License Podcast asked... Dave or Sammy? To the young people out there, this is the age old question of who was the best Van Halen front man. (Gary doesn't count. Van Halen III was a beer coaster). I... Continue Reading →

Farewell To Adam Bell

As every working musician knows, bands rarely remain the same for long, particularly when the members are “grown ups” – i.e., they have careers, families, and responsibilities at home. The more dramatic band break-ups among the “rock star” groups often make headlines with scandalous stories of disagreements between members or worse. But in real life, there... Continue Reading →

The Moment

Tonight, for a single hour, I wasn't pre-occupied with thoughts of books, book releases, future books, upcoming events, making music, reading, or writing assignments.

Music Review: 3 Blocks Away

Disclaimer: There is an editing mistake near the beginning of the article. They call the band 3 Doors Down instead of 3 Blocks Away. An editing mistake, not mine.

My Nemesis

It's time for me to get a rant out of my system. Deep breath and...SCREW YOU, A CHORD! How in the heck am I supposed to play you with three fat fingers so close together? Sure, I can cheat and just use the G and B strings but then I neglect the D string! The... Continue Reading →

Dear Local Musicians…

Well, you can add Greenville Life Magazine to my laundry list of local literary contributions. Strange that I had to get noticed by a literary agent in London back in 2015 (Thank you Keith Chawgo and Vickie Rae) before making a splash (actually, it's a tiny ripple) in my hometown of Greenville, Texas but the...

New Band To Sing Old C. Derick Miller Songs?

Remember never being able to touch the radio while riding in your older brother’s car? They're the ‘live’ version of that. 8 Bore are four Texas musicians that play what they want. From Toto to Zepplin, if you don’t like what you hear…just wait for the next song! Rumor has it they'll be incorporating the... Continue Reading →
