Rock and Roll Gift Guide

Looking for a great holiday gift for somebody who loves rock and roll? I've got a few ideas, and none of them will break the bank (except for the last one). 1. Keith Richards autobiography, Life. I started reading it right when it came out and took a break for a few weeks..but this thing is rock and roll memoir done right. Not only does Keith remember the sex and drugs and rock and roll..he weaves a good story. With plenty of behind the scenes anecdotes and quite a bit of humor, you get a good idea of what it felt like to be a Rolling Stone. And if you're a guitar player, he gives a lot of instruction on how he got certain tones on his most famous songs. While we do learn a lot about his fascination with open tunings, thankfully he doesn't get TOO bogged down in technicalities. 2. Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010 DVD or BluRay. Didn't make it to Chicago to see Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Jimmie Vaughan and the rest of the gang back in June? You'll get the highlights here and won't have to pay $11 for a beer.  While some cool stuff didn't make it into the video, there's lots to see here, including a rousing rendition of  "Miss You" featuring Ron Wood, Buddy Guy and Jonny Lang. If you buy the DVD at Best Buy you get a bonus disc. 3. Robert Plant's Band of Joy CD. I had to give this album a plug following our charming conversation a few weeks ago. Still can't believe he flirted with me. If you missed that conversation you can hear it here. And to answer your question, no I didn't give him my phone number. (I know, I know, I should have.) 4. LENNONYC This new documentary highlights John's life from 1971 until his tragic death in 1980, and his love affair with New York City. It features new interviews and interesting perspective on John's "Lost Weekend," the period of time he left rock and roll to take care of his son, and his immigration fight with the U.S. government. It premiered on PBS last week and is now available on DVD. I haven't seen it but Rob Thomas of 77 Square did. You can read his review here. 5. The entire Beatles catalog on iTunes. Assuming you don't already have it on vinyl or the remastered CD's that came out last year, iTunes has your digital hookup to the best music of all time. Not that I'm biased or anything. I think the whole collection costs $149, but you can get individual songs for $1.29 each.

What if you're the most effective man, you are able to make the type of speech that is expected, funny, and also the men and women will listen to, without any erring or aahing or umming.What if you're going to be the bride and intend speaking, then you'll be able to make a touching and beautiful speech which people will always keep in mind.

The Maid of honor will also stand on the side of the bride during the ceremony and is dressed to match the brides Maids, these are other close friends of the bride as well.The Maid of honors speech is significantly like the speech the most effective man provides only it brings out the special high quality and gentleness of the bride.

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the song here...

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The G-rating probably...

World's Worst iPod: Hall & Oates "Method of Modern Love"
Hall & Oates had a lot of great hits in the 1970s and 1980s, and if you believe a lot of folks, this is NOT one of them! This song with its amazing spelling lesson hook made it all the way to #5 on the charts in February of 1985. We're a...

Will this be Clapton's last record?
Eric Clapton definitely has retirement in mind. He hinted to Rolling Stone recently that he may quit touring and recording, and only play for family and friends. We can look forward to at least one more new Clapton record before he hangs up his Strat...
