  • The Missing Drums In Modern Pop Music

    13:25
    Follow OBM on Twitter and Instagram - In this episode I talk about the missing drum kits within modern pop music.  I miss hearing the sound of real drums being played in modern music and I was reminded of just how much I miss it when I heard En Vogue's 1997 single 'Don't Let Go' being played on the radio at a shopping mall.   Long live real drums!

  • Going To A Concert Solo Is Better Than You Think

    13:21
    Follow OBM on Twitter and Instagram -   Have you ever gone to a live concert on your own? If yes, then good on you for making the decision to actually go and experience the music of an artist or band that you love. Don't miss out just because someone else's schedule doesn't align with yours or no one else likes a particular musician that you do. Go your own way! (Pardon the Fleetwood Mac reference).  Live music is one of the great things that you can experience, irrespective of whether you are attending solo or with friends. When you go solo, you are not really alone anyway, because the minute you arrive at the venue you are surrounded by people. You are part of a community that wants to be there, a community of music lovers who are all there for the same reason and to experience the same thing. Don't hesitate the next time someone is playing live in your city, if you really want to go and see them. Get there, be there, and be part of the real thing that is live music.
