Bang Music

Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018

I recently attended a New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden (my wife and her siblings, raised in Upstate NY near the Canadian border, are all hockey fanatics—I just follow the puck).  Before start time, the photo of a new team member, Brett Howden, appeared on the jumbotron, and with it...

Okay, it’s that time.  Hear the waves crashing?  Let’s all gather ‘round the fire—I’ve got plenty of dry wood, there’s wine and beer in the cooler.  Moon is almost full, that silver light shimmering off the ocean— awesome.  Puts me in the mood for some summer music, how about you guys?  Thought...

Not sure it makes sense to say that I “ran into” my colleague from back in the day on YouTube, but that’s sort of how it happened.  Bob Power was an engineer, producer, musician and composer, often working out of Calliope studios in Midtown, which was Bang’s “crash pad” in the early 90s.  That’s...

I was flailing a bit, trying to figure out what the next column might be about when my partner Brian suggested, “How about Kidz Bop?”  To which I replied, “What the hell is Kidz Bop?”  “Look it up,” he deadpanned.  Brian has two beautiful little girls, ages 5 and 9.

So, turns out that...

As the world knows, I’m a liberal.  Social and fiscal.  So, for like-minded citizens these are not easy times.  You’ve seen me talking to myself on the street, in the subway.  Don’t be concerned—I’ll be fine.  Just wanted to establish the context. From the immigration ban to defunding Planned...

Late last summer I had the great pleasure of seeing the premiere of the documentary “Score,” written and directed by Matt Schrader

Peace On Earth.  No, seriously…

As you well know, normally at this time of year I can be found hanging out in the mall, mouthing the words to Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmas Time”, or Wham’s “Last Christmas,” unashamed of how ridiculous I must look, a grown man in his ugly sweater,...
