Opinion

Yeah, It's Happenin'

By WES BROOKS,

Have I mentioned I’m a rock ‘n  roller? I’m sure I have, but have I gotten as specific as mentioning that I have special place in my heart for blues-injected, Keith Richards open-G tuned guitar-type rock ‘n roll?

Well, I do.

Given to Fly

By WES BROOKS,

The song soaring through my headphones for this month’s  offering is “Given to Fly”  from the 1998 release, Yield, by Seattle rockers Pearl Jam.

For me, this was my rediscovery of a band that I’d come very close to letting go completely. By this point in the 90’s, the alternative/grunge movement was close dying out completely.
