July Talk is AWESOME!!!

I have 1 of Tom Cochrane’s albums, one I grew up with and borrowed from my parents. Nostalgia for me! “Mad Mad World”. He’s Canadian and from Lynn Lake, Manitoba. He was born in May of 1953, and he did the original of this song on this album in 1991…

He had a ton of big hits. Everyone in high school was into Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, any band involved with the “grunge” movement. At the time I was so opposed to that type of music. I guess it’s sort of a good thing. I like some stuff that people my age (34) might not know about. Like Tom Cochrane, The Eurythmics, my love of Tom Petty’s music, Dire Straits, The Edgar Winter Group, Prince, Counting Crows, B-52s, Tracy Chapman, etc. I heard “Frankenstein” by The Edgar Winter Group and it was instantly AWESOME! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOM4no5C8EU

Here’s some Tom Cochrane from the album I own and other albums afterwards…

These songs were on “Much Music”, Canada’s MTV, and radio as well.

Yeah, you had Tom Cochrane or Tom Cochrane & Red Rider, like Tom Petty or Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Neil Young or Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Matt Mays or Matt Mays & El Torpedo, etc.

Why did this turn into a music blog? Because “music is a BIG @#$%#$& deal”-Dave Grohl
“Complaining won’t solve anything. If you want something done your way, just do it yourself!”
“Don’t try to please everyone, it CAN’T happen”
“Learn something from your mistakes and don’t do them again”
