The Eagles' '<em>Hotel California</em>' at 40, '<em>Buffalo Springfield</em>' at 50
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Quick, what is the state anthem of California? If you answer 'California, Here I Come,' you are, like me, wrong. If your answer is 'I Love You, California,' you are an unusually well-informed career state employee. And if, like billions of people around the world, you answer 'Hotel California,' well, you are technically wrong but, oh so right. This month marks the 40th anniversary of the release of 'Hotel California,' both the song and the album it graces which is one of the most telling, and best-selling, albums of all time. The power and mystery of 'Hotel California' has tantalized and inspired, provoked and mystified ever since its exotic and evocative guitar figures and enigmatic lyrics were first heard 40 years ago. "It makes me want to go there and it makes me want to get away," said one tourist standing near a California street corner as a singer with a guitar gave the song a go. "Look at me," she said. "Here I am." December also marks the 50th anniversary of 'Buffa...

Eleven More Bass Players Who Belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Huffington Post - about 1 year
"You ask the average person what a bass is, or what a bass sounds like, and most of the time, they don't know. But remove the bass from any piece of music and suddenly it becomes the largest missing piece in the world! Whoa, fifty percent of the music just went away with one instrument! It is an instrument that is much more conspicuous by its absence than by its presence..." As told to this writer by Michael J. Visceglia, bassist, author, educator, recording artist The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees were revealed a few weeks ago and I congratulate all the artists: Bad Brains, Chaka Khan, Chic, Depeche Mode, Electric Light Orchestra, J. Geils Band, Jane's Addiction, Janet Jackson, Joan Baez, Joe Tex, Journey, Kraftwerk, MC 5, Pearl Jam, Steppenwolf, The Cars, The Zombies, Tupac Shakur, and Yes. Some of the choices are obvious to me, some less so. A few leave me bewildered, but that's rock and roll...the mistakes make the music real. And I see that a few of the nom...

Neil Young: A Timely, and Timeless, Appeal
Huffington Post - over 1 year
"The end of this war? The end of this war is when we solve the energy problem. This war is going on for a long, long time. This war will not go away until we figure out what we're doing here on the planet. This is a bad war." Neil Young 'The Charlie Rose Show' July 17, 2008 Even as his quirky yet essential place in the rock music pantheon was affirmed this month by his thunderously successful appearances at Desert Trip -- the massive, ultra-expensive mega-festival outside Palm Springs, California for classic rock aficionados, which also featured the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, the Who, Pink Floyd's Roger Waters, and Bob Dylan -- recent events had also affirmed Young's sociopolitical relevance. Earlier in the year, Young, a staunch backer of Bernie Sanders, feuded ferociously with Donald Trump over the climate change denier and racism inciter's insistence on using Young's corrosively anti-corporate 'Rockin' in the free world' as his incongruous campaign song.

An Open Letter to Those Attending COP 21: The One-Sentence, Moral Solution to Climate Change
Huffington Post - about 2 years
As negotiations take place in Paris, we, the undersigned, would like to suggest a new kind of conversation about climate change. Instead of asking, or even begging, corporations and countries to please reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, we would like to follow The Pope's lead and suggest that there is a simpler, more effective and more just way to deal with the existential threat facing life on this planet ... and to agree with Pope Francis that the core issue is, indeed, a moral and ethical one. We ask the world leaders and their delegates to agree on one sentence. A sentence that will end the root cause of the pollution of the planet, a sentence that will end the overt and covert subsidies that artificially encourage the emission of greenhouse gases, a sentence that celebrates true, full and honest "free market capitalism" and a sentence that will restore morality to the conduct of governments and corporations around the world. That sentence would read something like this: ...

I Hope You Dance: The Power and Spirit of Song
Huffington Post - about 2 years
As father to five vibrant and very much alive children, it's mind-bending and gut-twisting to contemplate even for a nanosecond the grueling task of giving the go ahead to a medical team you have just barely met to take your brain dead daughter off life support. Your brain dead daughter who apparently committed suicide. Your brain dead daughter whose organs will, after your selfless blessing, rapidly find their way to other lives, to other families so they can do what this daughter can no longer do. Live. Breathe. Love. Hope. And yet somehow, Bill Thomasson -- the father of now forever 18-year-old daughter Taylor -- navigates the journey of unfathomable loss with grace, dignity and strength. His poignant story is among those told in the Hallmark Movies &amp; Mysteries Thanksgiving primetime special, I Hope You Dance: The Power and Spirit of Song. It's the story of a song that became an anthem, but even more so it's about real people who have overcome real odds. People whose liv...

Laugh On
Huffington Post - over 2 years
I was raised with laughter. My parents' house was always filled with comedians, dancers, actors and writers. My Mother was a ballerina, and danced with The Royal Ballet Company in London."Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship,and is by far the best ending for one." OSCAR WILDE I learned to laugh young from the best in the business. Eric Sykes, Tommy Cooper, Norman Wisdom, Hattie Jacques, Spike Milligan, and Peter Sellers. In 1968 however I discovered a new breed of comedian, a group that'd recently graduated from Cambridge and would eventually become Monty Python's Flying Circus in 1969. A year earlier David Frost produced a TV show called "HOW TO IRRITATE PEOPLE" written by Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, and Marty Feldman, and starring Connie Booth, Michael Palin and John Cleese. I remember roaring with laughter when I watched sketches like "The Car Salesman" and "Airline Pilots," where Cleese and Chapman as the pilots start "reassuring" th...
