Editor's Note:  Nigel Glockler of legendary British metal band Saxon joins the Madness To Creation Podcast for the 39th episode. In this episode, Nigel talks about the release of "Inspirations", which provides "Saxon-ized" covers of famous classic rock songs such as "Stone Free" by Jimi Hendrix, "Paint It Black" by The Rolling Stones", "Speed King" by Deep Purple and "Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin.

(Mental Health Conversations): AMERICA PART TWO

Editor's Note:  New Jersey socially conscious, mental health conscious trio America Part Two recently released their music video for "Welcome To The Times", which follows up with previously released singles "I Don't Wanna" and "Glaciers."  The aforementioned singles take on hatred, racism and those that are just creeps towards women head on with their emotionally charged lyrics and powerful arrangements.  Case in point, the single "I Don't Wanna" talks about when a woman says no, she means no and that's the end of the discussion.  In this mental health conversation with Madness To Creation, America Part Two members Alex Fabio(vocals/guitars), Fred Rainville(vocals/bass) and Sam Weingarten on drums discusses education, dealing with loss of a grandfather and their music.  Fans can find Ameri...

(Music Video Review): Day 7 of Black History Month: That Super Bowl Halftime Performance featuring PRINCE

Editor's Note:  Super Bowl XLI was between the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears.  This video is presented by NFL Films.  And no I'm not going to talk about the football game.  I'm going to talk about the real star of Super Bowl XLI, Prince.  Usually, Super Bowl performances were forgettable but all these years later, Prince's performance still rings beautifully in my ears.  Prince wasn't there to promote himself or an album, he was there to celebrate love, life and music with the fans at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.  It wasn't just his music.  Yes, he did the songs in medley form of "Baby, I'm A Star", "Let's Go Crazy" and "Purple Rain", but homage was paid to Queen, Ike & Tina Turner, Jimi Hendrix and Foo Fighters for "We Will Rock You", "Proud Mary", "All ...

The Musician’s Tribune Vol. 39: “My Personal Spotify Playlist” by FREEMAN

London, England's own FREEMAN recently released his single entitled "London Nights" ahead of his upcoming summer release entitled "Love". Fans can expect the theme of "Love" to talk about the "free-love movement" of the 1970's.  "London Nights" was written with fellow bandmate Jamie Brown and it merges the nostalgia of the 1960's and 1970's with today's modern vibes.  Alternative Addiction has stated that "whether he's channeling Jagger, Dylan, Petty, Bowie, or whoever, he's doing it damn well".  The lyrics of the single follow the narrative of feeling isolated and alone in a city filled with people, until the perfect person comes around to help ease the pain. Freeman says “The opening riff for London Nights flew in from the ether and for weeks after we couldn’t stop singing it. Soon...
