Welcome to the New Blog!

Once upon a time, there was Idol Musings. Since February 2008, I have written faithfully on American Idol (and occasionally the other reality singing shows) with insight, snark humor and self-righteous candor. And Adam Lambert. I’ve written a lot about Adam Lambert. And within the blog’s 618 posts, I also wrote occasionally about music in... Continue Reading →

Sympathy for the Devil

[alternative title Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead] “I’m sorry for your loss, Dad.” [cue The Love I Lost by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes] I appreciated my daughter’s heartfelt sentiments.

With so many fond memories of memorable firsts, I would have told a story to own the Group Date. [cue... Continue Reading →

I believe that music is ultimately too subjective to call something... Continue Reading →
