From 2000 to 2004, I went to college at the College of Saint Rose in Albany and got a bachelors degree in public communications, with a focus in journalism. While getting my degree, I contributed music columns for my college magazine and campus newspaper. Went on to become the editor of my college newspaper and eventually started getting published with national music publications like #Relix and #GlideMagazine. People used to tell me all the time that I reminded them of the teenage rock journalist in the film “ #AlmostFamous”, the movie loosely based on the life of the guy in this photo, #CameronCrowe. I took it as a compliment. Always felt that he was one of Rolling Stone’s greatest contributing writers, up there with Hunter S. Thompson, Matt Taibbi and David Fricke.
His work has been published in #RollingStone, #Creem and #Circus... He’s interviewed #BobDylan, #DavidBowie, #EricClapton and #NeilYoung. He covered #CrosbyStillsNashAndYoung, #LedZeppelin and the #Grunge scene more prominently than just about any journalist in the music world. Some of his films include #PearlJam Twenty, Singles, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Jerry McGuire, and the new documentary on the life of #DavidCrosby... Remember My Name.
We went out for a glass of wine after the free David Crosby concert in the city tonight and he strolled in with a few friends. My girlfriend went up to him to say hello and tell him we were fans of his work. Super cool guy... Talked to us for a little bit and took a few photos with us!
Un día como hoy 22 de Agosto pero de 1967 nace en Washington el músico, compositor y cantante Layne Staley líder de @aliceinchains
Dotado de un poder de creación impresionante, Layne se caracterizó por poseer una de las voces más desgarradoras y melodiosas de aquélla célebre generación de vocalistas de los 90's.
Junto a su banda, gozó de un respeto absoluto de parte de la industria y fanáticos, a pesar que se les encasillo en la generación "Grunge", su música siempre tuvo tendencia hacia el Heavy Metal y el alternativo.
En el 2002 perdió la batalla...
Una infancia conflictiva marcó el caminó de Layne, jamás pudo superar sus fuertes adicciones.
Feliz cumpleaños Genio!
Descanse en Paz.
