I have a lot of music. I have music on my computer, on my phone, on vinyl, on CD, on cassettes. I even have a few songs on reel to reel tape! I had much more at one time. Like 3000 vinyl albums that got lost in one of my many relocations. That’s one missing possession that gnaws at me in the middle of the night.

Recently, I bought a c...

I had just gotten home from running errands on a beautiful Sunday.  With my list completed I sat my happy ass down on the couch in front of the TV for an afternoon of snacks and watching The Masters. Before Jordan Speith could get out to a five shot lead and consequently lose that lead my phone rang. It was Power Chord sponsor Kurt w...

I love music. That was probably the most obvious statement of 2016. That being said, I can’t play a single instrument. Not the bass, not the guitar, and absolutely not the drums. Singing is done in the car with the volume turned way, and I mean way up. I do however, play a world class air guitar. Years ago the band Great White held a...

Last week I was out running errands. Stops at the grocery store, getting gas and an oil change, etc. While on route from one destination to another I got a text message. Being a law abiding citizen I waited to check my text until I had parked my car. (cough cough) Or the next red light. It was my cousin, Dave. His text message read,...

My neighbor got some bad news from the doctor. He was told he had to stop working or he would lose his hearing for good. My neighbor is Brian Johnson from AC/DC. We live in the same city. I’m sure he has many homes but he does like this little town and is seen around quite often.

It has been reported that the band would continue on, w...

The other day, Power Chord TV’s excutive producer posted an article on Facebook about Steve Perry working on a new solo record. Last year was the first time in 19 years he had sung on stage. He did three encore performances with a band called Eels. He looked and sounded great. He doesn’t look like he did in the 70’s or even the 80’s....

Fashion and music go together so well because they each run on cycles. In fashion, what was cool 10 years ago gets a bit of an update and everyone is wearing it again. Remember spandex pants? Aren’t yoga pants the same only with a better textile? The same can be said for music. If you were willing to sit through two and a half hours...

One of America’s favorite past times during football season is to play "monday morning quarterback". If your team lost, you get to commiserate with your fellow fans about the game or call sports talk radio and complain. You can go on social media and ask the important questions like, "why the coach didn’t go for it on fourth on 15 fr...

2016 is here although, 2015 didn’t leave without a fight. Didn’t it seem like the casualties were high? Two iconic voices were taken from us at the end of last year. Scott Weiland from Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver. He had waged many battles in his lifetime. It seems he lost the final one on a tour bus in Bloomington, Minne...

In a childhood far far away. Before I was consumed by music, I was bitten by the Star Wars bug. At the time, I loved sports (still do). Movies and music were barely on my radar. While playing sports one day, I took a fall and broke my wrist. Two nights later, a friend of mine was having a birthday party. I was miserable and in pain a...
