RIP J. Geils


You probably wouldn’t take me for a big J. Geils fan. To be fair, I’m not a big J. Geils fan. But how can anyone with a pair of ears (or even one ear) resist that melody in “Centerfold”?

I certainly can’t. And I’m excited to read Boppin’s Post on Geils’ Top 10 to hear some of the band’s songs beyond those three I already know.

Thank You 2014


I’d like to send a big thank you to all of the people who stopped by the Audible Stew this year, but I don’t have addresses for all of them so I’m just going to thank those of you that read this post.

2014 was another year of growth for the Audible Stew. I’ve settled into my role as a rock blogger and I feel I’ve hit my stride. I’ve unleashed a few new series, Musical FriendsPlatinum Albums and So You Wanna Start A Band. I’m closing in on 10,000 hits. While none of these are huge accomplishment and I’m not quite a superblogger – It’s still a step on my way to global blog domination.

So after showing you the best the world had to offer you this past year in The Best of 2014, I bring you the best my blog had to offer this past year.

Now…(drum roll)… the winners are:
