Recently, I accomplished one of my bucket list items, a list far from complete but worth checking off. Still on that list, staying in broadcasting to age 71, making fifty years in the business, the Good Lord Willing and I don’t lose my job or die…that looks good so far. I also want one more […]

On Wednesday September 7th, DRI brought their 40th Anniversary Tour to Empire Underground in Albany, NY. The show started early at 6: 30pm with opening acts  1000 Yard Stare, Faded Line, Remains Of Rage, and Hate The Adversary. All of the bands brought their “A” game for sure. This was the debut show for Faded […]

How the hell is it already September?! Somebody, please, stop the time — I’m begging.  When I was a kid, my mom and dad would host a lot of parties. It was their way of killing three birds with one stone: unwind from a stressful work week, spend time with the kids, and party with […]

Your everlasting summer has faded. Soon your complaints about humidity will be replaced by pumpkin spiced everything. Forget it, okay. You do know we live in one of the best areas of the country for live local music. I didn’t make that up. Go check. I’ll wait…see, I told you. Not just you’re typical, garden […]

There’s a universe that operates on a natural law of rhythm, of galaxies spinning on the turntable of a black hole and the intricate interplay of planets passing by, moons revolving in such a way we could set our watch to them, and in a way, we do. And on this planet, there are trenches. […]

Metalheads all want to sing like Ozzy. It’s true. Whenever I go to a Walpurgis gig (a local Sabbath tribute band), they’re all singing along, especially to War Pigs.  They know all the words — even if they don’t sound like Ozzy. But imagine if you really could sing like Ozzy? What would that be […]

It seems like there are two ways to know music, at least in the case where there’s singing involved. One is that the music is so distinct, so recognizable, that the singing can be all over the place and you’ll still always know that band by the sound. Then it’s the opposite, with a singer’s […]

Fun bands are great. It’s strange, in that some bands, you listen to their music and lyrics and you feel so light that you don’t realize how difficult the music might be to put together. Like they say; the great ones make it look easy. And it’s refreshing to have a music that just does […]

One of the most obvious benefits to being involved in the local music scene is the “behind the scene” activities that occur.  The scene can certainly be “gossipy” at times, but in this particular case, the gossip is good. The gossip is Chad Ploss.   Nearly every drummer that I have interviewed thus far, has mentioned Chad […]

RRX: Your intrepid reporter, Niki Kaos, turned the interview format on its ear! Ky McClinton and Matty D, from the podcast Ky and I, hosted a roundtable interview. Like a songwriter’s circle, but with talking, not singing. Prince Reed produced the session, and we relaxed into the cozy atmosphere of Matty D’s Van Schaick Island […]
