There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
Seriosuly guys, Canadian band Mother Mother merits your valuable time to listen too. There are like nothing that you've ever heard. Kind of hard to explain, but it's like an infusion of rock, folk, and maybe other stuff too. It's weird, but one of the few bands I could listen to over and over without getting the least bit tired.
The new Alice Cooper, Along Came A Spider.
Within Temptation, which Facebook insisted I would like (and I do).
Exodus - Bonded by Blood
Very unknown but very good IMO: Egypt Central, One Lone Car
"The Hall of Fame is there to keep alive the memory of people. You don't need to do that with people like Buck [O'Niel] and Joe [Nuxhall]. Nobody's forgetting those guys."

Rich Mullins, The World As Best As I Remember It, Volume 1. One of my all time favorite albums.

Miniature Tigers - Catchy little tune called "Cannibal Queen"
"I can make all the stadiums rock."
He was a brilliant musician and songwriter, but the quirkiest oddball you would ever meet. He would often come on stage for concerts barefoot and wearing torn jeans. He was the rare person who never got an ego when his music got popular. I think he was somewhat embarrassed by the attention.
It's now been 11 years since he died and I still miss him more than any other person I wasn't related to, but he left a lot of good music behind and a pretty lasting legacy.
I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
Kings of Leon's new CD is decent, but I'm still in love with the CD featuring this song:
