Elton John and his songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin, were fans of Ray Bradbury’s writing and the song “Rocket Man” was, in fact, inspired by Bradbury’s 1951 short story “The Rocket Man”. I recommend reading the Bradbury short story “The Rocket Man” and then plug in the earbuds (or Seashells?) and give Elton’s “Rocket Man” a listen. Neither one will disappoint.

ZZ Top: A Top Ten (RIP Dusty)
The music world lost a rock-n-blues legend a few days ago. Dusty Hill, founding member and bass player for the rock-n-blues trio ZZ Top, put away his bass for the last time. In honor of Dusty. my top ten ZZ Top tunes.
Still processing the shock of loss.
Sometimes we need to hit the pause button…especially when we really want to hit rewind.
