rock n’ roll

It’s gettin’ steamy up in here tonight, y’all. And by steamy I mean all-out fire. These songs are hot. I’ve come to realize that I say “you’re welcome” to my listeners quite a lot – and in all the modesty that is Fighting Rose, I stand by that. So without a need for further explanation, for your […]

As much as we love “Smokin’ in the Boys Room” and “Paradise City” (and I say ‘we’ because if you don’t love those songs, you’re wrong) you can only listen to your playlist of the-best-of-hair-metal so many times before you wish you had something else to throw in with different lyrics but the same sentiment. […]

Whether you like it or not (country, that is) basically all current and classic rock has been influenced by country. All the pioneering rock n’ roll artists said it loud and proud, and you can pick it right out of the most iconic songs from the ‘Stones (Mick Jagger once told a reporter, “Keith has […]

The other day I accidently wrote “2012” on a check. (First of all, did I genuinely go back to the year 2012, because who writes checks anymore?) Needless to say, I’m a little behind, and not at all sure that I’m mentally prepared for a new year. Of course, I’m also not sad to be […]

Every couple months, my KPSU radio show “Six Degrees of Rockination” has a theme. In November 2016, that theme was the piano. What songs did I play? The Bus Boys – “The Boys Are Back In Town” If you’ve seen the movie 48 Hours, you’ve heard this song. Fast, fun, old school rock ‘n’ roll. […]

Happy Holidays, y’all! It really seems like I was just compiling songs for Fighting Rose’s first holiday show, A Very Fighting Rose Christmas (check it out a couple of tabs back). But that’s already been a year ago! So I thought that the season called for another round of rockin’ Christmas tunes, and just like how we all […]

This week’s theme: a nod to the “poor drummers”, featuring pieces with prominent, powerful, sensitive, and intuitive percussion (and basically any song with “drums” in the name). Jazz-centric, but with enough funk, rock, pop, and dad jokes to whet any palate. By the way, the names of all drummers and percussionists are listed after the group […]

    Episode 2 of The Road to Nowhere follows us down the dead-end streets of small town America. There are ghostly bars, gleaming, formica-covered diners, glittering high school proms, and the interminable, hypnotic roads that lead to somewhere, anywhere else . . . and back home. “Yourtown U.S.A.” focuses on outsider country, dreamy doo wop, rock, […]

“The original is better.” You’ve no doubt heard this from someone, and probably uttered it yourself, at some point in your life. And it often is the case that the original (be it a work of audio or visual art) is “better.” Whatever that means. I, myself, carry this opinion and yet I struggle to […]
