When vocalist Ed Kowalczyk stated to the sold out Fallsview Casino crowd that this year marks Throwing Coppers 25th anniversary it seemed like he almost couldn’t believe it as much as I. It is so hard to fathom that the album that put the band on the map and got the whole ball rolling is that old. The album has a unique distinction for climbing to #1 after it first hit the album charts (52 weeks) thus making it the third longest gap to do so in the Billboard Album Chart history.

For our first show of the new year it was one for the books. The band from Rockford, Illinois Cheap Trick took over the Fallsview Casino Friday night. Take it over they did with as solid of an 80-minute set as you will find from a band from their era. Not only did Cheap Trick dazzle, they did so with the best sounding show I’ve ever heard the band play. Continue reading

Queen: The Top 25 Songs

Queen/The top 25/By Joseph Suto and Dave Leary

We decided to take a stroll through the Queen catalog and rank what are the top-25 songs the band has ever made.

Rock Hall Still Has Many Glitches

Commentary By Music Writer Thom Jennings

Rundgren from an outdoor show in Buffalo in 2013

The latest slot of Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductees raised the ire of Todd Rundgren fans-like me. While I’ll be the first to admit I drank the Rock Hall Kool-Aid after TR came in third place in the “fan” voting, the Rock Hall has been transparent when it comes to the fact that the fan ballot amounts to one vote out of around 1,000. In other words, it may feel good to vote for your favorite artists, but the main purpose of the fan ballot is to collect email addresses, not influence the outcome. Continue reading
