Remembering Tina Turner: The ‘Queen of Rock & Roll’
Today, I, and millions worldwide, mourn the loss and celebrate the monumental legacy of the iconic ‘Queen of Rock & Roll,’ Anna Mae Bullock, widely known as Tina Turner, who passed away at 83. Originating from humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, Turner’s unique voice and electrifying performances charmed audiences worldwide, establishing her as a global superstar in a career spanning over half a century.

As we navigate through the sorrow of her loss, let us reflect upon her transformative career and indelible impact on the world of music.
TOM KEIFER #KEIFERBAND Release New Video For “Untitled”; Special Edition ‘-Rise+’ Vinyl Set For Release July 7
Hard rock fans! If you’ve been craving a grinding, blues soaked, heavy groove, then TOM KEIFER #KEIFERBAND’s “Untitled,” just might be the fix.

Best of Bloganuary 2023
In January, I took part in a WordPress challenge called Bloganuary. Every day for 31 days, I received a writing prompt to inspire me to write a post for that day, which I did. During those 31 days, I sang a song for you, wrote a poem, shared childhood memories, offered advice and aspirations, and much more. Below are what I consider to be the best of Bloganuary in no particular order. Thank you to those who read my posts and engaged with them. I appreciate it. I hope you enjoy this greatest hits retrospective of this fun writing challenge.

Where is the best place to watch the sunset near you? There’s nothing quite like watching a beautiful sunset. Read on for my answer to this question, and let me know yours.
What would you title your autobiography?
Today’s Bloganuary prompt is “What would you title the chapters of your autobiography?” I don’t like that question because I think it’s too difficult to answer accurately, and I don’t think the answer is compelling. Instead, I’ve modified it to: What would you title your autobiography? That’s a far better question, easier to answer, and makes for a more readable post. Below is my answer to this question, and don’t forget to let me know yours.
