Thoughts on 2017’s Rock Hall inductions

Written by Mike Dow

Back in the Oct. 26 edition of The Maine Edge, I made a prediction about the 2017 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Out of 19 nominees selected, we were told that only five would actually be inducted during ceremonies next April. As it turns out, six names made the cut with a seventh added in a special category.

2016’s best music – A Top 10

Written by Mike Dow

From Bowie and Prince to Merle and Maurice, music fans experienced a staggering number of painful losses in 2016. Surprisingly, the album - and music in general - seems to be more alive than ever.

Ian Hunter talks Mott the Hoople and David Bowie

Written by Mike Dow

What do you do when you’re one of rock’s most consistent artists and have recorded one of the finest records of your career when few are paying attention? You put it out anyway and hope it finds an audience.

Album review: Neil Young's 'Peace Trail'

Written by Mike Dow

Is there no one around Neil Young with the giblets to tell him that his new songs are not very good?  It would seem that way. 

Anyone who has seen Chris Ross and The North at one of their live shows should not be surprised that the group has just put together a hilarious video announcement for their upcoming album.

The Rolling Stones – ‘Blue & Lonesome’

Written by Mike Dow

For the 25th studio record of their career, The Rolling Stones have finally made good on their decades-long promise to record a real blues album. 

Lou Gramm, the original voice of Foreigner, has signed on to be part of 'The Rock Pack' a two-hour, multi-artist classic rock show scheduled for December 16 at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona.

The first thing you notice about Those Pretty Wrongs (the band and eponymous album) is a sense of familiarity within the music. That isn't to say we've heard any of these songs before, but rather that the depth and richness in the songwriting and recording suggest a project that exists purely for the love of music-making, the way it used to be done.
