It all started with a boy and a dream, but who really wants to hear about all that? Or about another bandmate deciding to go off on his own to find his “voice” and make a record that “matters”. Between the barrage of superlatives and unwarranted argument of how the debut album challenges any post-Beatles' solo work, folks just can’t help but doze off. Sure it could be the lack of sleep, self medicating or early onset dementia, but let’s be honest. We lack bandwidth for all the quality material thrown at us today. Oh we try to keep up, but how can we? I mean there’s 9 ‘Real Housewives’ reality shows concurrently running and American Idol just got picked up for season 17. And those priorities WILL NOT be compromised. So where does that leave us? If what you’ve read thus far hasn’t done it, just look at the pic over there. Doesn’t it make you wonder what those baby blues are stoically reading about? The weather, sports, a Grammy nod!? Nah, it’s probably just the demise of civilization as we know it crumbling into a sea of apathy. But not to worry, Rome didn’t fall in a day. There’s still plenty of time to ignore impending doom and enjoy the finer things in life...like this artist!
