Welcome to SlowTrain Rollin'..... Did you just happen to stumble upon this little blog of mine by accident? Or, was your arrival here part of some great plan laid out by unseen forces that have been guiding you every minute of your life until you found this place? Either way, you're probably asking yourself one thing: Who is this idiot?? Well, I'm gonna ignore that question and answer this one instead: What is this SlowTrain Rollin' blog about?
Like most bloggers, I'll be using this space to express my opinions on a variety of subjects no one really asked me about in the first place. I don't mean those small, tedious topics like politics, war, religion... No, I'm out to tackle the really BIG issues of today: Music and Sports.
I will be reviewing many of the CDs I have collected over the years (Yes, I'm the guy that still buys CDs). My collection isn't huge, but it does consist of some of the greatest artists of all time: Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Simon & No Garfunkel, The Band and others.....plus, some country stars: Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson, Alison Krauss. I'll also include my thoughts on a few newer acts that have made their way into my collection -- Amos Lee and Tokio Hotel (If you don't know them, go check them out right now!!!! I'll wait...)
I know what you're thinking now: Who is this idiot??? As I said earlier, I'm gonna ignore that question. But, you may also be asking yourself what could I possibly have to say about Dylan and The Beatles classic albums that hasn't been said before? Answer: Not much, but at least I can share with you why I love this stuff so much and encourage you to listen to them yourself, whether it's for the first time or the 1,000th time.
When I'm not writing about the music I love, I'll toss in a few thoughts about the other things that make me get out of bed every day: Baseball, fishing and maybe even a book review or two.
So, now that you know what this blog is about, be sure to check it out once in a while and let me know what you think.
