John Hall Does It All
Huffington Post - 5 months
John Hall co-wrote two of the most widely played songs on Top 40 radio during the 1970's that are still in constant rotation today. The hits "Still The One" and "Dance With Me." You may or may not connect the dots between the man, and the group he co-founded Orleans, but he is much more than this success story which alone would be a dream come true like winning the lottery for most musicians. Mr. Hall is by definition a modern day renaissance man. In addition to rockstar he is a social activist, former two time US Congressman, father, grandfather, and now author with the release of his self penned memoir "Still The One." I met John whilst living in Woodstock in the mid 1980's. Along with Malley Heinlein, Pete O'Brien and other local musicians we formed the house band at "The Joyous Lake," the main music club at the time. The band Stormy Monday named after the iconic blues hit by T-Bone Walker played mostly soul, Motown, and blues covers. Local musicians would jump up to jam or ...

After captivating the Throwback Thursday generation last year in Brooklyn, the festival is coming to Governor's Island and will take concert goers to a simpler era where Pokémon couldn't be caught using cellphones. Pauly Shore will be the master of ceremonies and is looking forward to the event. Shore, best known for being the king of MTV in the 1990s, told me in an exclusive interview that he is ready to return as the host of the ultimate gathering that proudly celebrates nostalgia. "I like the energy. I did it last year when we did Brooklyn and that's why I'm coming back. It's a really cool environment. And the '90s were a really fun time for me, before the internet obviously.

Britney Spears Is Willing To Overlook Justin Timberlake Breakup For The Sake Of Pop Music
Huffington Post - 6 months
Apparently what goes around, comes around ... and around ... and around. In case you missed the last 10 years or so, ever since Britney Spears shattered Justin Timberlake’s heart in 2002, the former *NSYNC crooner has been crying a river to basically any reporter who will listen. He was straight-up savage in 2008 when inducting Madonna into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  “The world has always been full of Madonna wannabes, I might have even dated a couple,” Timberlake said during his speech, subtly shading Britney. In 2011, JT spoke about her again to Vanity Fair, admitting they hadn’t spoken in over 10 years. Nonetheless, he used the opportunity to turn their relationship into something of “The Notebook” proportions.  “I wish her the best — that goes without saying. We haven’t spoken in nine or 10 years … We were two birds of the same feather — small-town kids, doing the same thing,” he said. (If you’re an albino burmese pyt ...

Trump's Twitter Suggests He Actually Loves Fox News
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Donald Trump keeps his friends close, at least on Twitter. He boasts almost 6 million Twitter followers, more than any other presidential candidate. But the Donald dishes out "follows" sparingly. So far, he's bestowed the honor on only 50 accounts. More than 10 percent of the accounts Trump follows are affiliated with Fox News, Reuters pointed out today. Trump has a complicated relationship with Fox. He feuded with the right-leaning news organization last week, eventually refusing to participate in Thursday's Republican presidential primary debate hosted by Fox. The news agency and real estate mogul have since reconciled.  Feud or no feud, Trump's willingness to follow Fox-affiliated accounts on Twitter typifies the love-hate relationship Trump seems to have with Fox.  What does it take to get a Twitter follow from Trump if you don't work for Fox? Well, if you aren't a part of Trump's immediate family, you could try becoming an outspoken supporter. But even then, you're ...

Time in With Dr. Tim: Helping Girls Overcome the Emotional Scars of Trauma
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The breakthrough came through crochet. Like many girls who have suffered abuse or neglect, Kacy didn't want to talk to a counselor. At just 10 years old, she had come to our Youth Villages Girls Center for Intensive Residential Treatment for intensive help in a safe setting. She hadn't been successful in other places, but she wasn't doing too well with us either. Youth Villages helps girls in all our programs, but our Girls Center was opened in 2009 specifically because of the lack of effective help for girls with the most severe emotional and behavioral issues. Like many of the girls who come to us, Kacy hurts herself -- cutting her skin with any sharp object, even attempting suicide. That's a common way that girls respond to trauma. Children usually don't respond to trauma the way we think they should. Trauma, just like any stress, can trigger "flight or fight" responses. But, girls and young children most often freeze rather than fight or flee. They don't act out; they act i ...

After the 18-month Get a Grip Tour ended in December 1994, the band took a break in 1995 to spend time with their families. They needed to rest due to the grueling lifestyle of the previous 10 years under the helm of manager Tim Collins, who helped orchestrate much of the band's comeback and sustained success.

Aerosmith, however, almost broke up after Tim Collins spread rumors that band members were deriding each other and that Tyler was being unfaithful to his wife and using drugs again during recording sessions in Miami.

Shortly after relocating to Boston, Tyler's dissatisfaction with Tabano's lack of passion and dedication would prompt the band to replace Tabano with Brad Whitford.
