Oceania is the latest album from Alt Rock royalty The Smashing Pumpkins, or if your feeling somewhat cynical Billy Corgan and his Smashing Pumpkins tribute band. I must admit I went into this record with low expectations, ever since the reformation and reshuffling of the bands line up and Corgan’s ambitious (to say the least) [...]
The story of Bobby Womack is one of incredible proportions, starting off as a guitarist he worked with the likes of Wilson Pickett and Aretha Franklin before his solo career took off in the late 60′s. Between then and now Womack has established himself as one of the true great soul singers from that era. He’s also battled with scandalous romances, [...]
He imagines that if he and his special lady are together when they die, at least they’ll “get laid in the afterlife.” They should have that inscribed on their wedding rings!
