MUSIC Buyers Beware!!!!!

That as of July 10, 2015 new music is being released on Friday instead of Tuesday. I don’t know IF this means we get more days for a sale price or less. When it was on Tuesday those of us who prefer the hard (physical) copy only had 5 days to get that sale price. So my advice is to know when your artist is releasing a new CD and look in the sale paper the Sunday of release week.

It seems that there is no way to know for certain if the sale price will carry over to the next week so IF you are even remotely thinking about buying the hard copy I urge you to do so. Remember that the hard copy generally comes with the lyrics, pictures, and liner notes etc. I’m not saying the download copy is bad just that the hard copy has perks.

BOTTOM LINE whatever format you like BUY the WHOLE CD (which is the way the artist intended for it to be listened to). There are always songs that never get airplay that are just as good or better than the hit & possibly could be your personal favorite. Why should WE (the music buyer/listener) be told by the record companies what songs are worth our time when music speaks to us so differently?

Please Support the artists with your purchase or new music will become a thing of the past.

Keep on rockin

PS I’m looking forward to much anticipated releases this month, August will be a GREAT month for new music with releases from DISTURBED, POP EVIL & BUCKCHERRY that I know of. More next post at ……..

Meeting POP EVIL

Can you believe Pop Evil knows about my book?

As fate would have it, while on vacation in WI, I was presented with a rare opportunity to attend a POP EVIL show. I hurried to get my ticket the night before to guarantee I’d get in and boy was I surprised the next night. I not only got to see POP EVIL but I was among the first few fans to get a meet and greet with the band.  The guys were wonderful as they greeted the row of fans that were awaiting them. They each signed our CD’s, posters, shook hands, gave hugs and made an effort to say something to each fan but the most memorable part for me was having my picture taken with the band. This was something we’d all have as a special memory forever.

And even more so for me since I was also able to hand them my information about a book I wrote that has a music theme. They were very supportive and showed interest. It meant the world to me that finally musicians would know about it. After all that is who I dedicated the book to.  I hope that POP EVIL finds the time in their busy schedule to read it. But as you can see when I saw the picture up close I realized that  Matt was holding my card. That small gesture made this experience even more exciting and personal for me.

POP EVIL put on a great, high energy show that evening giving the fans a mix of new and older material. And the smaller venue made the show more intimate. The band was super cool and told the fans to stick around after the show cause they were going to hang out.  They really are a nice group of young men and IF they are in your area by all means go check them out.  You won’t be disappointed.
