On this week's episode, Matt tries something different. There is a dearth of news, so we jump straight into a monologue on how curiosity can sustain you through years of collecting. The genesis for the subject came from an interview Matt recently heard with writer Derek Thompson about his book "Hit Makers" as well as a podcast chat about the nature of curiosity and passion. It's an interesting, if slightly meandering rant, based around detective work, pushing your listening boundaries and relying on friends to enrich your listening habits and improve your collection. This is one's a horse of a different color. Enjoy!
Another week has gone by and we've lost another musical icon. In fact, this past week, we lost George Michael, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds and Rick Parfitt from The Status Quo. Matt touches on these deaths and then delves into the white, male, Baby Boomer driven committee that selects acts for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Things finish up with an in-depth look at Elton John's Honky Chateau in another installment of our Dollar Bin Darlings series.
Back in November of 2014, we published our list of the ten most overrated bands of all time. Without question, it has been our most viewed piece and has stirred up an immense amount of discussion and debate.
Now, in this special podcast episode, Matt has put together an audio version of the list with audio clips of the offenders and myriad thoughts on how and why the list looks the way it does. There is lots to chew on here, and of course we can't wait to hear your agreements and arguments. Let's go!
