Queen is jumping on the bandwagon, or are they? ~Stevi

It seems as though the new trend in music is to release 'lost tracks' from performers that have passed decades before. I'm not sure what to think of this; although I get excited when I hear that Freddie Mercury's lost Queen production is finally going to be available to the public, I can't help but wonder if it's music that was MEANT to be lost by the performer. By that, what I mean is: these are tracks put together, then scrapped by the artist. Whether it didn't go with their direction, or it didn't meet their standards, it was music that was not meant to be heard with their name attached to it at the time of the musician's life (this also happened recently with Michael Jackson). I would imagine someone taking rough vocals, producing them in their own way, and releasing them without the artist's consent is much like some creep taking pictures of you at a beach, then publishing them. 

At any rate, here's the link for details on Queen's upcoming release ft. Freddie Mercury

LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling." It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing! Musically, these guys were...

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

Finally, recognition of Stevie Ray Vaughan by the Rock Hall
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
