Re: “Looking back on the 50th anniversary of Etta James Rocks the House, recorded at Nashville's New Era Club

My late father,James Beverly LeCroy,shot the cover photos for "Etta James Rocks The House".Though he did work for other artists and the Grand Ole Opry (as well as being an accomplished musician himself),this album cover was his most well-known work.It was also part of the "Night Train To Nashville" exhibit,and my father took pride in being part of the musical history of Nashville.Though he passed away last year at the age of 93,his legacy lives on in this classic album.Thank you for a great article.

Re: “Queens of the Stone Age return to Nashville and show that every band of bad boys has a soft side

Thanks Gold.

I really didn't know anything about the QOTSA band except Dean Fertita is in the band. Dean has been a great addition to the Raconteurs' band. I had to go back to your article here to see how to spell his last name and realized he has the word "tit" inside his last name...no disrespect, just will remember how to spell his last name from now on. He is a great musician and performer so I should know how to spell his name correctly...and will from now (hints: fur-tit-a...but is it pronounced like" fur-teet-a?).

I do have to confess that I thought the guys in the band named the band that because they are all "queens"...like their new buddy Elton John (who admits to being a "queen"). Okay, I know that is dumb but girls can be dumb sometimes. I'll think of them as Dudes of The Stone Age from now on so as not to go on being so confused.

Re: “Thom Yorke-led supergroup Atoms for Peace doesn't need Spotify, but it's a different story for the little guy

wow, andy! calm down, your keyboard doesn't like it. Unfortunately for you, a lot of young artists do not like spotify and would rather not be on it but feel they have to.

Re: “Thom Yorke-led supergroup Atoms for Peace doesn't need Spotify, but it's a different story for the little guy

Thom Yorke is a pain in the a$$. And does nothing to promote the idea of a relationship between musicians and their fans. He's the Lars Ulrich of streaming music. This is a much better environment for lesser known artists. 20 years ago bands would've loved to have their stuff accessible to so many people. They were fighting to!! So I don't feel bad when I fire up spotify or torch music, and I certainly won't be paying a cent toward any of Thom Yorke's projects.

Re: “John Densmore and the legacy of The Doors

Jim’s tortured lyrics and poetry ignited an entire generation. I found him in my own youth and his work inspired me throughout over half my life now. See my portrait of The Doors’ frontman and join in Celebration of the Lizard King at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/07…

Re: “John Densmore and the legacy of The Doors

John Densmore will be signing copies of his latest book "The Doors: Unhinged" at Grimey's Too/Howlin' Books next Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 7pm. He'll also sign one other Doors-related item. So if you've ever wanted to meet a member of The Doors in person, here's your chance!

Nice work, SLM. 120 Minutes definitely influenced me as a unsteady adolescent. JAMC, Mudhoney, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Pixies, Tool, Primus were all featured. I should pore over that TylerC.com archive of playlists for Swervedriver too.

Re: “Funk-pop guitarist Alex Cuba never overplays

He came to Houston Community College to help us celebrate the Latin Heritage and he was so amazing! I also agree that he was very engaging and was easily able to connect to the students, he made us laugh and clap along. He has a very endearing and humble personality, as a true gentleman should be.

Re: “The further adventures of Robyn Hitchcock

Robyn is a legend, though not too many are aware of his awesome talents. The Mercy Lounge show was perfect.

Re: “Thrash co-founders Megadeth on God, Iron Maiden and Megadeth

"When they passed that bill exempting them off of Obamacare, that was the cherry on top of the cupcake for me. All I have to say is, 'I told you so.' "

Oh, except that it isn't true, but Dave didn't get the memo, so he continues to spew the stuff he gets from Fox News and Alex Jones.
