I am pretty sure Jack White is the best

It’s an honest accomplishment of mine that I’ve held back this long to make a blog post on Jack White.

As soon as I start talking about him, I don’t really seem to stop. To me, he is quite frankly one of my favourite, and greatest musicians of all time, and I don’t use the term ‘favourite’ that often.

Someone Wrap Up Our Greatest Musicians in Bubblewrap

I didn’t plan on writing a blog post today. However, last night I watched a BBC documentary about the last 5 years of David Bowie. To say it moved me would be an understatement. By the end I was left with a tear in my eye, the documentary really captured David’s more intimate life and I was truly left inspired.

Celebrating The Doors

From now on, on the 4th of January every year, I want everyone to celebrate the mighty band called The Doors. This is a request not only by me, but also by the city of Los Angeles, who have proclaimed the date as the ‘Day of The Doors’.

In true Jim Morrison style, it would be fitting to go wild, go crazy, and simply not care.

Warning: This blog post contains excessive Pearl Jam fangirling.

If you haven’t already figured it out, Pearl Jam are getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2017. Along with others… but we’ll get to that later.

The Return of Temple of the Dog

Temple of the Dog wrapped up their 25th anniversary tour last month in the place where it all began. The supergroup from Seattle finished their 8 date reunion tour in their hometown to a sold out Paramount Theatre over 2 nights, and gained nothing but excellent reviews from Rolling Stone, with The Morning Call saying it was “indeed, pretty amazing”.
