David Childs http://kuer.org en The Stone Roses: Made of Stone http://kuer.org/post/stone-roses-made-stone <p>I’m due for a confession. For as much as I tout myself as a great fan of alternative rock and all sub-genres that fall under that description, I only recently (in the past three years) began to regularly listen to English rock legends The Stone Roses. Still, it’s not too shocking. As fans of music, we all experience our own “eras” or “phases.” But it seems now more than ever, I’m coming around to the rich contributions that the UK offered to the rock music of the eighties and nineties.&nbsp; It’s not that I’ve been completely blind to it, it’s just that I’m now immersing myself in it.</p> Thu, 03 Jul 2014 16:46:02 +0000 David Childs 48162 at http://kuer.org The Stone Roses: Made of Stone The First Sounds of 2014 http://kuer.org/post/first-sounds-2014 <p>Can you believe that May is on its way out and summer is upon us? If you’re a music junkie like me, it’s easy to overlook the amount of time that passes as new albums are released at lightning speed. Musicians and bands do a stand-up job of keeping me distracted, and with that thought in mind, I’d like to share some of the music that's been keeping me occupied. Don’t worry, I’m keeping the list short, but definitely sweet, with some of my top releases so far for 2014.</p> Tue, 27 May 2014 16:27:55 +0000 David Childs 45640 at http://kuer.org The First Sounds of 2014 Beatlemania: 50 years and counting http://kuer.org/post/beatlemania-50-years-and-counting <p>On February 7, 1964 The Beatles touched down at JFK Airport in New York City. Their subsequent performance on <em>The Ed Sullivan Show </em>could easily fall in the category of events that we often reflect on by saying “I remember where I was when…”&nbsp;Countless musicians have given a nod to seeing the legendary television performance and being mesmerized and inspired.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 25 Mar 2014 15:41:03 +0000 David Childs 43679 at http://kuer.org Beatlemania: 50 years and counting
