My Music These Days

I started out my career as a rock radio DJ and I've always been interested in popular music. Still am, and now that I have a teenager, I'm getting introduced to all sorts of interesting music. I'll get into that in a minute but I do have to say that rock is for the young so those musicians of my generation who are still trying to play like they were 22 -- hey, you ain't. I thought the Stones looked so fucking pathetic at the Super Bowl. I'm also not into nostalgia, so you can't pay me enough to go see freakin' old fucks like the Stones or Paul McCartney or even worse, The Who -- hey get a clue two of the four of you are DEAD and the remaining two look half-dead -- so please don't tour.

Anyway, my current favs are:

Clap Your Hands, Say Yeah -- saw them at a club, they were only OK -- but I still like this CD
The Killers -- haven't had a chance to see them yet, but a good CD
Franz Ferdinand -- who put on a great show, BTW, and I like both their CDs

and my current #1 faves
Hard-Fi -- saw them at a small club and loved them -- great show, great CD

Check 'em out!
