The Tower of Power guitarist, bass player and drummer used to frequently jam at a neighborhood bar in the mid to late 90's. Guitar player Coco Montoya used to drop in, young guitarist now known as John 5 used to hang out, and G & R's Richard Fortus lived with 2 other E Coast guys (actor and comedian) in an apartment one street over, where fellow late nighters used to hang when the bar closed. Otherwise we would wind up at the 24 hr Twain's diner on Ventura & Coldwater (sadly, now a Sharky's). A duo of very pretty young porn chicks with old eyes used to cruise the place, and tried to get guys to stock up on Colombian marching powder, and 'party' at a motel down the road in Universal City. The guys probably couldn't believe their luck and had no clue about their starring roles on candid camera, no kidding.

A new official music video for David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” premiered Saturday to celebrate the 50th anniversary of both the 1969 single and the Apollo 11 moon landing.

“The video features never before released footage of David Bowie performing ‘Space Oddity’ at his 50th birthday concert at Madison Square Garden in 1997,” Bowie’s official website said of the new visual.

“It is directed by Tim Pope, and includes footage shot and directed by Eduaord Lock, the founder and choreographer of the Montreal dance troupe La La La Human Steps, for the on screen back drop of Bowie’s 1990 Sound & Vision tour.”

As a music geek I wanted to share some of what I currently vibe with.

Grew up hearing this album a lot alot and man do I still love so it so so much expect for Wild Honey Pie my god that song sucks, glad I have it on my phone now so I can just delete the damn thing.

Best album of 1999 in my humble opinion.

Proper English stuff

A warm melancholy entrance to the 90s.

Have to be in the mood for it, but I love it when I am! Sad to hear that Erickson the main force of the band passed away last month.

Also grown up with a lot of Men at Work and this summer just screams smiles and summer time(and makes me think of my first breakup staying up all night staring at the stars then the rising sun listening to Overkill), and I recently saw Collin Hay in concert he was amazing except for his wife who kept being all Yoko.

The sun begins to set as I park my car at the top of Skinner Butte and I turn off the engine and stare longingly at the sun as the synths melt into the sun the song cuts off and the tape pops out I am in peace. I take a deep breath and drive home in silence.

I first heard this album when I was in second grade or so and since then I would bet it has been one of if not my most played album.

One of my favorite newer peeps, and recently saw him in concert and was easily my favorite concert ever.

Since the Travelling Wilburys would be what I would explain my music tastes with if forced at gun point. This song still really hits a chord with me and still sends a shiver down my spine.

This is the tip of the iceberg of what Australia has to offer for the genre! I'm sorry but Greta Van Fleet is just straight up not good, they try to copy that Zepplin/more hard rock vibes of the era and end up sounding like a corporate thief in my thoughts while Gizzard takes the influences and changes it up.

I really feel with this one as a semi cynical high school student. I have written the whole song's lyrics on a couple tests that I had no idea what to do for whatever reason. We are all on the Rat Race or the Road to Nowhere or both.

Just like Back In The U.S.S.R. a killer way to open an amazing album and an amazing way to end this list.

Well that it my current vibes for summer for the most part. For years I was stuck in a ELO,early 80s New Wave, Travelling Wilburys, and Daft Punk rut so I have worked to embrace the rut while expanding always! As my old third grade teacher used to constantly say, "change is the constant."

Black Woodstock

This 1969 Music Fest Has Been Called ‘Black Woodstock.’ Why Doesn’t Anyone Remember?
The Harlem Cultural Festival attracted everyone from Stevie Wonder and Nina Simone to Jesse Jackson and Marcus Garvey Jr., but quickly faded into obscurity. Fifty years later, a rediscovery is finally underway


The Harlem Cultural Festival attracted some of the biggest artists of the late Sixties, from the Fifth Dimension (pictured) to Sly and the Family Stone. Why doesn't anyone remember?

Operatic Metal

Finland's Tarja Turunen, one of the biggest voices in the business. No autotune or backtrack needed. With her opera training she could probably project nicely even without a mike.

Kendrick Lamaar. The only popular artist to ever win the Pulitzer Prize in music. Genius. Listen to the richness of the sounds with so few instruments.
