It was touch and go in the early part of 2016 for Classic Rock. Half the people that have ever made music in my lifetime died in the first 6 months. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but it looked like it was going to be up to The Rolling Stones to save the planet. Well, since the release of The Beatles documentary “Eight Days A Week” the geezers are rallying.

Bob Cam Garden Party

(Editor’s Note): As you may have guessed by now, Cam is MIA today, swamped by his work in the music business he loves, that informs his knowledgeable and entertaining columns here at DBAWIS. Hopefully, the work load will decrease and he will be back with us next week, but until then, I thought you would like to see the first column he ever wrote for us back in September 2011. This will bring back memories for long-time readers, and introduce Mr. Carpenter to those of you new to the blog. Enjoy.

My bones are aching like they’ve been played by a mad vibraphonist. Ah, the perils of live performance. The agony of the feet.But ah, the joys as well!

Cameron Carpenter: The ABC’s Of Rock – A

(Editor’s Note: Cam is tied up this week, and rather than let you be Camless for a week, I thought it would be fun to rerun Cam’s first ever column for DBAWIS from September 22nd, 2011. Have we really been here that long? The Camster (Carpenter to the Stars) will return next week with an All New Column…in the meantime, here  is Cam’s maiden voyage from the long forgotten past exactly as it appeared almost 4 years ago….)

The impetus, for what has now become a series, was my discovery of an old vinyl record by Maggie Bell. I came across it going through one of my many purge cycles. Suicide Sal, released in 1975, was my introduction to the blues….I just didn’t know it then. I wasn’t in the habit of labeling types of music in my younger years, I just knew what I liked. Greg Simpson, who happened to be managing the now defunct Records on Wheels in London, Ontario, recommended the album, thinking I might like it. I loved it and still do. Thank you Greg!

MTV, and then Canada’s own Much Music, changed the musical playing field. Whether you loved it or hated it, suddenly being able to SEE musicians, actually playing, dancing, emoting, in living  colour or sepia and in unfortunate eighties fashion choices, and all in the comfort of your own home, impacted on the decades to follow.

Give me a couple of Jack’n’Cokes and I can spill out rock’n’roll stories with the best of them. For forty years my life has been consumed by music and I have been fortunate to meet and talk to most of my idols, and, at one point, I even got paid to do it.
