Science: Drummers’ Brains Are Actually Different

Being a drummer, I've heard all of the jokes. I've also been told at times that my brain wasn't "quite right." Well, according to a scientific study, it's apparently true...but in a good way. I've always tried to be a problem-solver, and this study shows that trait is part and parcel with being able to lay a solid groove "in the pocket." But, hey...don't take my word for it; read the article and see why I have just gotten a nice, big shot of self-esteem.

Video: Skeeter Sings Willie Nelson’s “You Ought To Hear Me Cry”

Here's a video from the Flag City Opry performance on 5/20/14. It's one of my favorite old Willie Nelson songs, "You Ought To Hear Me Cry." Willie wrote and recorded this one back in the 1960's, when he was signed to the RCA Victor label. I wasn't released as a single until 1977. Two years prior, in 1975, Willie had released "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" from his Columbia Records smash debut album, Red-Headed Stranger.

Are The iPod’s Days Numbered?

Some tech blogs are speculating on the possible discontinuation of the product that launched Apple into the stratosphere, and sparked a revolution in both the personal electronics and music industries: the iPod. Unit sales have declined over the last couple of years, as more and more smartphones (with music storage and playing capabilities) make up a larger and growing share of the market.
