You may be wondering to yourself why in the holy hell my opinion on music matters to you in the least little bit. Well most likely it doesn’t. What I’ll tell you is that for years I’ve been listening to everything I could get my hands on. I’ve been lucky enough to meet several major artists in my life.  I’m not talking about the typical meet and greet type thing, but an actual we sat around and shot the shit.  Once again this doesn’t necessarily mean that I have any kind of special knowledge of music.  But I can say that I’ve been pretty spot on when it comes to predicting what will or won’t take off on the charts. For instance back in the day I was a blackjack dealer working in a hotel bar. Not far from me was a A&R rep, a music programmer and a DJ. In the process of doing my job we started talking and they asked me what I listened to. Just because it was the last thing I listened to I told them Live. As it turned out that was who the A&R guy was pushing. We sat and chatted for a couple of hours with them nearly badgering me about why I liked the band. Eventually the programmer and DJ agreed to start playing more Live and it was extremely popular in our market. So was it all me? Probably not, but it was freaking cool and makes for a great story.  I could also share with you the conversations I had with the members of Def Leppard, Pantera, Evan Seinfeld, Bon Jovi or a number of others.  But that just makes me sound like an ass.

So here it is, why I am working on this site. I love music.  It’s the one thing I can’t live without. For me good music is like air, I have to have it to live. I’m not ever going to play guitar or sing for a band but what I can do is listen to what’s out there and give people my honest opinion of what I thought of it. After that it’s up to you to listen to and decide if you like it because at the end of the day if it speaks to you, that is all that matters.
