We know how you feel, John

John Mellencamp just recently released his 23rd album, and he's OK with being know as an old man of rock and roll. More power to ya, John.

The kids are rockin' Billy Joel

Does this kid have any idea what "makin' love to his tonic and gin" means?


Pulling out an old fave

Sometimes the old stuff is really rockin', like Pat Travers doing his classic "Boom Boom (Out Go The Lights)."

And we think that musicians must make all this cash selling records. Well, Lyle Lovett says he makes nothing from records, but pays the bills by touring.

Unique record collection coming to Syracuse

A vast collection of 78 rpm records — valued at $1 million, weighing 50 tons and representing more than a half-century of American music history — is being donated to Syracuse University by the estate of a prominent New York City record shop owner.

The more than 200,000 records represented the entire inventory of "Records Revisited," a landmark Manhattan store owned by Morton Savada, who died in February from lung cancer at age 85.

Savada's collection included recordings from 1895 to the 1950s, with big band, jazz, country, blues, gospel, polka, folk, Broadway, Hawaiian and Latin among the genres. It also contains spoken-word, comedy and broadcast recordings, and "V-disks," which were distributed as entertainment to the U.S. military during World War II.
