This blog is an electronic diary of my musical life – random thoughts on music or my personal reactions to gigs I’ve attended and albums I’ve listened to.

It’s a celebration of the type of music that connects with you so deeply that it leaves a scar. Music that becomes part of your reality – your being, your future and your past. That inspires you to dream, to reach higher. That helps you deal with sadness or loss. That elevates you, plugs you into something vibrant, beyond the paint-by-number dreams of everyday life.

This blog is dedicated to the artists who make that music and the enthusiasts who, like me, have been scarred by it.
