I am always receiving emails on interesting sites, sounds and happenings that are most times related to the Classic Rock genre. So I've decided to showcase these items every weekend so you have a chance to check them out. If you have anything that others may view as cool, hip, badass or just interesting, please feel free to contact me at the link in my header and give me a heads up.
And now check these out.
Jonathan Paisner of City Listen Audio Tours sent me the following release:
Autumn in New York. The days are a bit shorter, the air a bit crisper, the leaves beginning to change...What a great time to enjoy a walking tour.
The Rock and Roll Tour of Manhattan, hosted by Ken Dashow
Our latest tour takes you through the famed streets of the East and West Villages of New York while rock DJ Ken Dashow talks about the legends, the artists, the movements that have put New York City at the center of rock and roll history. Any music fan will absolutely love it.
From folk to rock to punk to new wave, New York City has been a vital part of it all
- See where Hendrix, Dylan, Springsteen got their start
- See some of the legendary locales and former locales in the NYC Rock scene
- Re-enact classic album covers
And so much more...
I personally took this tour from here in my den in San Antonio and followed along by Googleing the different locations as we came to them. It was very cool and informative, like I was there.
If you dig Hendrix, Springsteen, The Ramones, Zeppelin, Lennon or want to know about Fillmore East, CBGB's and The Bottom Line,..... then you'll dig this tour.
Paul Miller of Lyric Culture turned me onto the following:
Lyric Culture takes greats such as Don Mclean, The Beatles, INXS, and KISS to show their popular lyrics right on the front of their tees. This unique product carries a unique license and the artists even get proper royalties.
Here's what makes this apparel so cool!! Paul says, "Each piece is burned out individually by hand to give it a unique vintage feel. This is very labor intensive. No two tees are exactly alike. Lyric Culture uses high quality fabrics that we also enzyme and silicone wash and design our own fits and styles. These are not blank tees with a simple print. All graphics are original illustrations done by hand. We don't use existing album covers or clip art etc. There are multiple screens, not only on the outside of the tee, but also on the inside so you can wear the lyrics close to your heart. The song copyright info is printed under the label and they do have to pay a royalty to the songwriter. Finally,the hang tags are individual concert tickets featuring the history of the song."
Folks, aside from these awesome designs for men and women, Lyric Culture also donates a portion of their proceeds to worthy causes worldwide. Check them out when you have a chance. I think the "Brunette" may find one under the tree.
And finally, a totally cool sweepstakes where you can win an "Autographed Fender Squire Stratocaster". Signed... you guessed it, by the members of Led Zeppelin.
