Re: “Christian punks MxPx wrestle with doubt — and greatness

I don't think we should be personally attacking Mike here. It is easy for church to be a routine that means nothing, It's good to think about what you're doing and what it means to you. Christian lyrics can be insincere and forced; It's easy to tell the difference between something inspired and something that isn't. When you've been told how to think for so long It's easy to walk off and try something else that might be the complete opposite. But that doesn't mean that you can't come back to the pure desire of wanting to feel God's presence again and realize your life hasn't taken you anywhere better. There is nothing wrong with questioning. I know I have no one to judge.

Re: “Oddboy Collective Brings Another Month of DIY Variety

You are right, Greenman: The wording in that paragraph was misleading. Our print issue street date is Thursday, so I was writing this piece to push to next week's Oddboy event and the subsequent weeks' events. But I should not make reference to "last week" in a paper whose issues straddle two different weeks. I regret the error and have clarified the wording now. Apologies to you and any others who read it and were confused. Thank you for pointing it out.

Re: “Oddboy Collective Brings Another Month of DIY Variety

There are only four Wednesdays in in September, so how could there already have been a residency show last week? The whole first half of the description of when the shows are happening is totally wrong. Pretty regrettable error.

Re: “Scowl Brow Singer Robby Hale Burns Cross, Posts Pic to Facebook

You seem offended. Maybe you will just label me a 'racist nazi' because I'm not in line with your judging left. If your a stand up person Robby will have your back no matter your skin color.

Re: “Scowl Brow Singer Robby Hale Burns Cross, Posts Pic to Facebook

This guy has been a bigot and a bully around town for years. No one took a public stand against him or his clique of bro-nazi rednecks. As a community we can't continue to give these fuckheads a pass. He's not the only one in the scene who proudly uses the N word. Don't believe his bullshit cop-out "some of my best friends are black."

Re: “Elenora Fagan balances life between rock and rap

Hi MusicMike,
Thanks for writing and asking. We reached out to Elenora Fagan bassist Juan Ossa, who informed us, "Elenora was dissolved a while ago. We got to record an album and everyone kind of started drifting apart. Two of the guys had kids and stuff, so that had something to do with it. My career as photographer/filmmaker started picking up as well, so I had to choose. Our guitar player still plays as a solo artist and sometimes as a session player. He goes by the name Von Hunter."

You can find Elenora Fagan's self-titled album of 2011 on iTunes at this link:…

And follow Von Hunter (who's now doing acoustic funk, rock, reggae and soul) at his Facebook page:

Whatever happened to these guys? Found them on spotify, and wow is all I can say. They have a very raw sound, could be big.

Re: “Remembering Stevie Ray Vaughan - 20 years later

I was, also, at the 7/7/90 concert in Holmdel. I was lucky enough to first sit in the lighting booth with Eddie, the lighting guy, and his girl Laura, who was my friend. I was also on his bus that afternoon and got to meet him as I was exiting his bus. Then, after he was finished playing, Eddie, Laura and I walked across the stage to sit stage right for Joe...I just sat down on the black stage luggages when the bandshell fell! I had just walked under it! The concert went on but SRV was freaking backstage! About halfway through Joe's stint, SRV came over to Eddie, Laura and me to discuss the damage with Eddie. He had calmed down by then and stayed with us until Joe was finished......memory of a lifetime!

Re: “The night Dickey Betts broke my guitar

Dear god I hope this is strictly satirical otherwise it is nothing more than sheer rock-and-roll blaspheme. Most guys would chop off their left nut to have THE Dickey Betts play their axe. Shit, I wouldn't care what he did with it, just to meet that man let alone watch him play your own instrument would be an absolute honor. Stick to your eye-liner, glam-rock garbage if you can't appreciate one of the greatest guitarists going, belonging to, in Bill Graham's words, "the greatest rock and roll band in the world"

Re: “The night Dickey Betts broke my guitar

Is this supposed to be a joke or trying to be serious? If so who is the author so I can be sure to always avoid anything he writes in the future.
