Stefon Alexander, aka, P.O.S., returned last month with his first full-length album in years (following a kidney transparent) entitled Chill, dummy. The album, which featured the track “Born A Snake” which Marvel used for their Black Panther web series (see above), is currently on the round supporting the new work. Speaking of that new piece […]

Dark Helmet took it to ludicrous speed, and so have The Wrecks. Google that reference if you don’t get it by the way. What I’m saying is the Los Angeles band have been on the fast track from the second they formed some 15-months ago. Let’s prove that point below, and then have the band […]

Video by shootmepeter.com Wyclef Jean is a kid in a candy shop right now. As he arrives at the Gibson Showroom in New York City for his A-Sides session he’s told he can choose any guitar he wants to play.

A week from today the nominations for the 89th Academy Awards will be announced, and I’d expect a few jaw-dropping omissions (Ryan Gosling?) and additions (Michael Keaton?) like every year. That said, I think we’ll see less surprises this year than in years past (ie. La La will sing and dance to the tune of […]

2016 was a bad year. We know it. It’s been written everywhere. The world is in complete disarray. Even if you voted for Trump, you have to agree with that. Celebrity deaths were too much to handle. The Oscars were “so white.” Mariah pulled a Milli Vanilli at the final hour. I could go on […]

Disney wasn’t quite sure how many Star Wars films to add to the slate until Rogue One debuted. Admittedly, Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm said the company didn’t want to go beyond the two sequels to last year’s mega-hit The Force Awakens and the “Young” Han Solo film. Now that Rogue is a hit, we can […]

It must be rough having to go through your career with the title “American Idol Winner” before your name. Sure, many winners and artists from that show have embraced their AI roots but I’d think, if I had even an ounce of musical talent and played my whole life even before a contest I’d won, […]
