The Who’s very first Nashville performance!!

Can you believe it?  Neither could I, but it’s true.  I was going to witness the first Nashville show that Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey have ever played together.  Roger had performed 2 shows in town about a year or so ago with his own band, but not with Pete. Opening this show is a […]

Rick Nielsen’s Guitar Collection on Display in Rockford

Not all musicians are gearheads, but Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick most certainly is. In fact, his guitar collection elevates ordinary gearheadism to work-of-art status.
