News today of Eddie Van Halen’s passing. As I posted on my Facebook timeline, Was never much for knowing who the faces, voices, artists were as individuals behind their band/group persona. He was pretty much the standout exception.
RIP Eddie Van Halen.
First was media posts yesterday of Helen Reddy passing. I scurried onto YouTube to find a few of her hit songs back in the day, because while I wasn’t a particular follower of her work, her work was a very memorable part of my early teen/post childhood times. And with my way of having memories tied to soundtracks,… Continue Reading “They brought back feel good memories”

Legendary country singer Kenny Rogers dies at 81
I grew up not knowing or realizing there were very distinct genres of music since on Guam we had a very small, select, choice of radio stations. I only remember two…. KUAM and KSTO (K-Stereo). The stations played the different genres at different times … Continue Reading “Noting Kenny Rogers in music memories”
