A nice interview with Jimi Hendrix’s sister Janie on the Bravewords.com site. It’s talking about the latest collection of unreleased Hendrix material to hit the stores, Valleys Of Neptune. Janie Hendrix: “He’s probably laughing.” BraveWords.com: Yeah, he must be laughing, going, “how can I be ruling the rock world…” Janie Hendrix: “40 years after my…

Music Mondays: Five songs I love

Another list of songs I really love, this time leaning a bit on the heavy side. I by Black Sabbath (performed by Heaven & Hell). This is one of my favourite Dio-era Sabbath songs, from the underrated Dehumanizer album (Dio/Sabb box set). This sizzling live version is performed by the reformed Dio-era version of the…

Music Mondays: Five songs I love

It’s been a while since I did one of these fairly general entries in the “Five songs I love” series: Forget about Me by Mem Shannon. A great blues/soul/R&B singer, Mem Shannon is terribly underrated.

Music Mondays: Fergie Rocks!

Thanks to SciBling Ed Brayton for bringing to my attention Fergie’s blistering duet with Mick Jagger on The Stones’ Gimme Shelter. U2 is the back up band. The Youtube is here. Mick Jagger also sings. Fergie, for those that don’t know, is the singer for the Black Eyed Peas Jagger and Fergie are both great,…

Welcome to the latest feature here at Confessions of a Science Librarian — Music Mondays! My plan is to have a vaguely music-related post here most Mondays, somewhat in the vein of my Friday Fun posts, but probably not quite as regular. I’ll probably mix in short CD reviews, odd bits I’ve found on the…
