The Doobie Brothers Do AC This Sunday Night

To say that the Doobie Brothers have been around a long time is an understatement.  They formed in 1970 and, except when the band disbanded (sounds a little redundant) for five years back in the '80's, they are still around (and touring!) forty-five years later.  And though the lineup has changed over the years, die-hard fans will be happy to know that original guitarists/vocalists Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons are still with the band today.

Marlene’s Music History Moment : 8-25-1975 [VIDEO]

Has it really been forty years since Bruce Springsteen's album "Born to Run" was released??  Yep!!  That's four decades!  And chances are (if you've been around as long as I have), you had that album in your collection.  "Born to Run" is a classic and my fave Springsteen album.  But it wasn't his first studio album.  It was actually his third.  And it still sounds as good today as it did forty years ago.

Marlene’s Movie Madness : Straight Outta Compton [VIDEO]

"Straight Outta Compton" is the name of hip-hop group N.W.A's first studio album, and it's also the name of the new movie about the band.  N.W.A. came onto the music scene in 1988 and changed hip-hop forever.  But the movie is not simply a story about gangsta rap.  It's a story about real life on the streets of Southern Los Angeles and how that life influenced a new genre of music.
