    The "if you had a time machine" concert.

    Two concerts come to mind. Hendrix was in town and I didn't see him. I have no idea why I didn't go. The other was Miles Davis at Massey Hall.in the 90's. He was pretty old at that point, but it was likely the last time to see the great musician.

    Your Worst Concert Ever

    This would be the flip side of "Best Concert Ever". It was actually hard to come up with one, but I'll say the MC5 at the RockPile in Toronto around 1970. They were insanely loud and I couldn't decipher one word from the singer. Just a cacophony.

    Female Frontmen

    Ya I said frontMEN, so sue me. Frontwomen sounds awkward. Anyway there's been a lot of great ladies fronting bands over the years. They are usually singers that play an instrument occasionally eg. Chrissie Hynde, Ann Wilson, Stevie Nicks etc. But this lady has got it all - great voice, stage...

    Worthy Commercials

    Commercials - we all hate em. But every once in a while one will appear that is memorable and catchy. Here's one that I love. It's for Maynards candy and has a nice happy vibe to it. The music is very 60's and the vocals sound a bit like the Hollies. And the girl in the light summer dress is...
