BourbonAndVinyl is a blog post about the timeless joys of listening to rock and roll music and having a sip or two of bourbon, preferably at the same time. I like to focus on older, established artists who are making new music. That seems to be a sadly overlooked niche these days. Give me guitar chords not beats. It’s my hope that in these pages I’m able to evangelize rock and roll and the great bands who still play it.
Music has meant a lot to me over the years and I usually try to relate the music or the artist to my personal experience with them. Memories I have often evoke certain songs and vice versa. Luckily for me, I married a woman (referred to in these pages as The Rock Chick), who shares my love of music.
I am not a music critic. I did not study music theory in college. I’ve just spent a lifetime listening to music, reading liner notes and anything else I can get my hands on about the artists and music I love. Put simply, over the years I have developed an intense enthusiasm for rock n roll music. If there is something that I’ve discovered over the years that helps you learn something you didn’t know before, my job will be successful.
Nor am I a bourbon expert, but I know what I like.
It is my attempt in these posts not just to edify but to entertain as well. I try and see the humor in everything I do or have done. If you’re not laughing, you’re not living. So some of these posts may have nothing to do with music or drinking but will be my attempt to make you laugh. In most cases the names are changed in these stories to protect the guilty.
