NEW MUSIC: David Bromberg/ David Bromberg Band


Love the Blues rhythm (feel) and I hit "repeat" on Track #4 I'll Take You Back, but the slow, drowsy country twang feel of some cuts and the down tempo story telling feel of the Folksy selections have never been my cup of tea..

Cuban to the Rescue

He who does NOT agree with the outspoken Cuban is living in a cloud! wE ARE all..

DALLAS (Reuters) - Outspoken Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban fended off social media criticism on Thursday for his "bigoted" response when asked at a business conference to address the controversy over banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Overcoming bigotry requires acknowledging internal prejudices, Cuban said in a video-recorded interview shown on Wednesday at the GrowCo convention hosted by Inc magazine.
"If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it's late at night, I'm walking to the other side of the street. And if on that side of the street, there’s a guy that has tattoos all over his face - white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere - I’m walking back to the other side of the street," he said in the interview that was posted on the Internet.
Critics said his "hoodie" reference recalled the 2012 shooting of unarmed, black Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, who was wearing a hooded sweatshirt when he was fatally wounded in a struggle with a man who said he feared for his life.Cuban defended his views on Twitter, saying that his quotes were not meant to advocate racism.
"The point was that before we can help others deal w racism we have to be honest about ourselves,"

The Who May Release New Music For 50th Anniversary

Pete Townshend has revealed that he's hoping to release some new material to celebrate the Who's 50th anniversary. He broke the news during a recent interview with Billboard, saying that he plans to dig through their archive to find anything that they may have missed in the past.

"I'm trying to [look] through my 20,000 hours of complete and utter disorganised music . . . I'll be pulling some songs out of Floss to give to Roger [Daltrey] to see if we've got enough to make an album. It might be a big waste of time, but I'm hoping there will be an album," he explained.

He also discussed the new track he recently penned for the television show The Americans:
"I wanted to keep it very simple. Here's this couple whose whole life is about duty, duty without honor, duty without explanation. There are no accolades. They're not living a lie but doing things they find hard to do. Everybody has a part of their life that's difficult to explain. For me it's why the f*ck am I in the Who?"
