I attended my first concert on April 2, 1990 when I saw Rush on their Presto tour at the Forum in Los Angeles. In 1998, I started my writing career. 

Not too coincidentally, I reviewed my first album – Rush’s Vapor Trails and first concert – Rush’s Vapor Trails Tour – in 2002 for the Orange County Register. It was one of the highlights of my five year career as a reporter for that paper.

Sometime around 2007 attending concerts became almost a hobby introducing me to music and bands I never would have listened to otherwise.

In 2007, I contacted The Oregonian and offered a free review of Rush’s Snakes and Arrows tour I was attending. They declined. Instead, their reporter covered Britney Spears rather than a sold-out Rush concert.

So, in 2012 I decided to start doing what the local media fails to do on a regular basis – review the music that matters, or at least the music that matters to me.

Once I finally figured out the blog thing I posted all of my reviews here – reviews of bands you’ll probably never read about in your local newspaper.

Since then, I have included album reviews, a couple of book reviews and interviews for those generous enough to give this little website some time.
