Hope for Preemies, No New Stones & New Kid OK

0 Comments · Wednesday, April 17, 2013
Researchers find that live music, played or sung, can help with the development of premature babies, Mick Jagger says no new Stones album, but Keith says, "Uh, yeah," and some in the media actually took time to report on boy band members/runners' non-injuries just hours after the Boston Marathon explosions.

All Hail Satan!: The Devil's Favorite Songs

A playllist of Beelzebub's favorite songs, just in time for Halloween weekend

Whether you call him Beelzebub, Satan, the Prince of Darkness, Mephistopheles, or just the plain ole devil (it’s all about your preferred nomenclature, man) there is no denying the big guy downstairs has been a huge influence on Rock & Roll.

This Date in Music History: May 10

The Rolling Stones enter the studio for the first time and Sid Vicious would've been 55 today

On this date in 1963, right after signing their deal with Decca Records, The Rolling Stones entered London’s Olympic Sound Studios to track its first single, a cover of Chuck Berry's "Come On." The single came out in the U.K. on June 7 and went to No. 21 on the U.K. charts, allowing them to begin playing shows outside of London. The band's singles steadily performed better in the U.K. — the second one, "I Wanna Be Your Man" (a Beatles cover) made it to No. 12 and their cover of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" went to No. 3 (it was their first U.S. chart single, as well, reaching No. 48). In early 1964, the band had its first No. 1 single (in the U.K.) with another cover, Bobby and Shirley Womack's "It's All Over Now." The first original song by the Stones to make it to No. 1 didn't come until 1965's "The Last Time." Later in ’65 the Stones released the following tune, which signaled the coming of a legendary, enduring band — it reached No. 1 in countries across the globe. Over 50 years after forming, the Stones are still rocking. They ended up doing pretty OK for themselves. A 50th anniversary tour is currently said to be in the works; reports are that the band has been rehearsing in New York and New Jersey for … something (details have not yet been publicly released). Keith Richards told Rolling Stone their aiming to hit the road next year.Mick Jagger is hosting Saturday Night Live on May 19 for the show's season finale. He'll also be the musical guest. But with whom will he perform? Maybe those New York-area rehearsals will result in a full Stones performance on SNL? All four members of the Stones were present (along with Don Was on bass). They reportedly rehearsed just a few songs, including "Miss You" and "Jumping Jack Flash." But Jagger's most recent release was with the "supergroup" SuperHeavy, featuring Joss Stone, Dave Stewart, A. R. Rahman and Damian Marley. Perhaps that's who will play?My money's on either a solo performance backed by SNL's band or the full Stones. Though if The Rolling Stones are performing on Saturday Night Live, you'd think NBC would be very, very eager to promote that. We'll see.One thing of which I'm fairly certain — wanna bet Jimmy Fallon makes another cameo on SNL May 19?Click on for Born This Day featuring Donovan, Bono, Craig Mack and Sid Vicious.

Life (Review)

Keith Richards [Little Brown Publishers]

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 24, 2010
Even though Keith Richards worked with professional writer James Fox on this long-awaited memoir, the voice sounds dead-on true to the "Keef" we know from countless interviews, concert footage, Rolling Stones songs, run-ins with the law, etc.: profane, rambling yet blunt, rough-edged and potentially violent, funny, defiant about his bad habits, passionately unafraid to say what he means and mean what he says.  

The Life of Riley

Michael Riley’s extraordinary love of music is the focus of an upcoming tribute

1 Comment · Tuesday, November 10, 2009
When Michael Riley died in June from a massive stroke, it was clear his passing would leave a gaping hole in the Cincinnati scene and that his life and talents were worthy of significant tribute. His longtime professional and personal companion Tebbe Farrell has been planning that tribute for months, and it comes to fruition Saturday at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center with "Man of Music: A Tribute to Michael W. Riley."  

Keeping a Home Base Here

I hope you don't have to be a young dude to read the Living Out Loud column. I'm in my sixties, just like Mick Jagger, but I feel young at heart.   

Stones in the Road

0 Comments · Wednesday, January 28, 2009
I'll be meeting my son for lunch next week, and my daughter wants me to see her new place on Sunday. They never seem interested in leaving Cincinnati. I always am. But while I've threatened to leave many times, so far I've stayed right here. I've moved around a lot, but I always stay local. My road doesn't really go anywhere else.   

Sway (Review)

Zachary Lazar (Little, Brown and Co.)

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 11, 2008
If Zachary Lazar has an inherent enthusiasm for the Rolling Stones, his novel's subject, he keeps it hidden. Rather, he meticulously challenges a truism of the 1960s: that the Stones' performance at Altamont dramatically ended the '60s.
