Music (253)

It's a great time to be Nils Lofgren. One year after issuing a 10-disc career-spanning retrospective ('Face The Music' copies of which are personally autographed), the multi-instrumentalist and member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band since 1984 has just released 'UK2015 Face The Music Tour,' featuring 15 carefully chosen live solo tracks recorded at various UK venues last winter.

To support the new disc, Lofgren scheduled a series of dates across the US for first part of 2016 that are now being rescheduled as a result of Springsteen's sudden decision to hit the road in support of 'The Ties That Bind: The River Collection,' a 4-CD/3 DVD (or 2 Blu-ray) set rounding up the music recorded by Bruce and the E Street Band for 1980's 'The River.' including a wealth of previously unreleased audio and video.

The band, composed of Rick Bruns (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Greg Lunn (vocals, guitar) and Chas Bruns (vocals, bass, drums), navigates a variety of styles ranging from rock and folk to pop, blues and even a modern day sea chantey among the album's 12 original songs.

Steve Hackett of Genesis and GTR

Written by Mike Dow

If progressive rock had a Mount Rushmore, we would surely see Steve Hackett's face carved there.

As lead guitarist for Genesis (1970-1977) and cofounder (with Steve Howe of Yes and Asia) of short-lived mid-80s super group' GTR, Steve Hackett's influence is vast. From Phish, Van Halen, Queen and Rush to Kate Bush, Trans-Siberian Orchestra , Porcupine Tree and Spock's Beard Hackett's impact ripples through them all.

Tony Banks of Genesis A Chord Too Far'

Written by Mike Dow

As far as their public was concerned, Tony Banks was the congenial, soft-spoken, 'quiet' member of Genesis, content to let Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford (and, previously, Peter Gabriel and Steve Hackett) absorb most of the spotlight glare.

Within the band, it was a starkly different situation. From their early, blazingly theatrical progressive-rock epics to their latter days as MTV darlings, Banks was, more often than not, the primary creative instrumental engine of Genesis.

Paddy Murphy's is under attack

Written by DJ Samuelian

BANGOR - On Wednesday nights at 8, an invasion is launched on the second floor of Paddy Murphy's. Attack on Paddy's is a weekly event hosted by The Maine Fighting Gamer's Alliance. The event features brackets for both 'Street Fighter IV' and 'Super Smash Brothers.' Entering the brackets is $5; there is no cover charge for those who just want to watch.

Wednesday the 24th marked only the second of the weekly events, so the creators of the event are still open to feedback and change. You wouldn't have guessed it was only the second week of the event, though. The upstairs of Paddy's was packed almost from wall to wall with gamers of all types. Some were there to win and some were there to watch. People were yelling and cheering, the beer flowed and the competitors showed the difference between casual and competitive play.
