  1. Glad to see good folk/pop talent from Joan being appreciated as well as that of rock n roll from the 60’s as well as some from the 70’s.
    Yeah, where we had truly good songs with great melodies and lyrics.
    The rock n roll bands of these days should be appreciated too, cause sometimes you gotta wonder, does this and the two generations before even know rock?
    Look at the so-called music and performers on shows the media keeps pushing and showing with noise and the most ridiculous words in songs that I wouldn’t even call lyrics.
    Glad to see McCartney and Jeff Lynne’s ELO going on tour this year too by the way.
    That we can dig
