What’s it all about, Alfie?

There are hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of blogs floating around out there, on every topic under the sun.  Do we really need another one?  Well, yes.  Because I need to write it.

Music is a wonderful thing.  I can’t remember a time when it wasn’t a part of my life, and the idea of a life without music is truly unimaginable.  But unfortunately, I’m not a musician.  Oh, sure, I took piano lessons, I was a band geek in school, I can carry a reasonable tune.  It’s not the same thing.  But I can write about it – the things I love, the things I hate, the songs, the people, and those weird random bits of trivia that get stuck in my head.

And the title?  Santana made the comparison about Jimi Hendrix, but I think it’s a good description for what music aspires to, and what the best music accomplishes.  It’s probably a pretty good description of what the best writing does, too.  I don’t promise to always write about the best music, and I’m certainly not egotistical enough to promise the best writing.  But it’s an aspiration.

Oh, and a shout-out to the audiophile playlist.  Thanks for the inspiration.
