Anthony is a frequent visitor... and big music fan:
Hey guys, my name is Anthony, and my wife's is Kathy Mondino, and we love visiting your sight. We had stumbled apon it one night, after seeing it in the internet accsess mag. We've answered many questions, and had asked a bunch of our own on ask the dj.
I've studied music, and music evolution for quite some time, from Al Jolsen to the maybe the early 80's stuff, manly focussing on the 50's 60's, and early 70's. We really love the one-hit wonders, and garage bands that had 1 or 2 songs and then vanished. I still drive my '69 Impala, all matching #s 396 big block, (cool, huh?), and 65 Biscane, 3 on the tree.
Now check this out. Growing up, I was a big Buddy Holly fan, and most of the 50's rock and vocal, then had progressed to blues, folk, old country, (Marty Robbins, then of my favorites). Then of course discovering The Beatles, Stones, Hendrix, Cream, and everything in between, especially the odd hits from bands like People, The Merry-Go-Round, The Lemon Pipers, Sopwel Camel, etc. My claim to fame was back in 88, I had an oportunity to ply axe for The Marshal Tucker Band for 2 years, until the road had burned me out.
Well anyway, I'm done for now, thanks for listening, thanks for your great sight, its the best way to browse and relive some great times.
|The BBHQ Feature Album is "Old Friends Live on Stage (Deluxe Edition) (2 CD/1 DVD)," by Simon & Garfunkel. If you were fortunate enough to see them in concert in 2003, I do not have to sell you. The concert was terrific! This album collection includes 55 songs, plus their new recording, "Citizen of the Planet," and one of the songs sung by the Everly Brothers during the concert. The DVD was recorded during their concert in Madison Square Garden in 2003. For any S&G fan, this is a must have! But then, you knew that already, didn't you?|
|The BBHQ Feature Book is “Bobby Rydell – Teen Idol on the Rocks.” This is a “behind the scenes” story of one of the boomers’ first rock n’ roll stars. Told in the first person, Bobby chronicles his short ride to the pinnacle of fame and fortune, his glide through the 70s and 80s, and how he nearly lost it all. Relax; it has a happy ending. Bobby was (and is) a “normal” Philly guy... with an absolute love of music and an amazing gift. For any fan of early rock n’ roll, it’s a wonderful story. And yes, Bobby Rydell is still on tour, playing to boomer fans all over the world. Click here for a closer look at the book.|
