        When I think of Adam Lambert I think of someone who is an extremely talented vocalist, heavily involved in charity work that is close to his heart, and someone who isn’t afraid to be himself.  I was all too excited when I found out that I would be able to write a blog for Concert Blast at a private Adam Lambert event being held by the radio station 107.5 The River in Nashville, Tennessee and sponsored by Direct Auto Insurance.

                Written By James Downing
                I just learned that a member of one of my all time favorite bands, The Monkees, passed away today.  Davy Jones died of a heart attack today Feb 29, 2012 in Florida. He was 66 years old. I never had the chance to see The Monkees together as a band but I did get to see Davy several times as a solo act.  His shows were always fun and his voice always sounded in top shape.

                    I have always said what an incredibly hard job it is to produce a show like the Grammys that tries to cover all the bases of what is out there in popular music today While the 54th Grammys was a very “classic” leaning show, there were lots of styles and variations included that gave it a well-rounded feel, almost to a fault – but more on that later. Really, it all comes down to this. When you open a show with “The Boss,” Bruce Springsteen, and end it with Paul McCartney, does anything else in the middle matter much?

                                        Life by Keith RichardsWritten by Mike Arnold
                                        The main guitarist of the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards, wrote a book about his life simply called… “Life”.  This is our first book review on Concert Blast and we may have more to follow. 

                                        Keith Richards’ book, Life is appropriately named due to that is exactly what it is, a journey through his life.  The book begins as he and Ron Wood are being arrested in Arkansas as they are driving their rental car to the next city during one of the many Rolling Stones tours… and they have plenty of drugs on them, in them, and in the car.
