Chaz Mixon

Chaz Mixon was born in Baton Rouge and grew up in Amarillo.  From his earliest years he took a serious interest in music and the concert business.  It was commonplace to hear heavy tracks like Billion Dollar Babies and Aqualung blaring from the open windows of his parent’s house. After landing at the University of Texas, Arlington Chaz knew that his life was destined to be spent on the air.  He proceeded to do that for the next decade and a half on the biggest rock stations in Dallas.  Chaz loves sports (especially Dallas teams) and he’s a fan of shows like Breaking Bad, Fargo and Ray Donovan.  He’s got a busy family life with his wife Kathy and their two twenty-something sons: Josh and Jeremy.  Chaz still manages to find the time to get some practice in on his 12 string acoustic.  It’s his way of recharging after a spending the morning rocking out, telling stories and helping you get your day in gear.

Albums from The Beatles, The Who and other many others could have had different, and in some cases terrible, titles.

I don't think Lynyrd Skynyrd ever pictured the song being done this way. The band Leningrad Cowboys are from Finland and teamed up with the Red Army choir for this interesting version of Sweet Home Alabama. Check out the hair!

No spoilers here if you didn't see it, but Sunday night, 9PM on AMC,  Breaking Bad was back. Many fans, myself included, have been counting down the days all summer. After last season's cliffhanger, we all wondered how the final season would begin. It's W. W. vs Hank, and it's on!  What did you think of the episode? There is always interesting music in each episode. Here's the Top 10 Breaking Bad songs.

Richie Sambora left Bon Jovi during the last leg of their world tour. No one has said specifically why, or if and when he'll return. But he's staying busy in the meantime. He just released a solo single that may shed some light on the situation. Check out his new tune here. . .

Not only is the music important for an album, but sometimes the cover can be just as memorable.

On August 2nd, 1969, Paul McCartney produced a song he had written for the Beatles Abbey Road album for a band that was recently signed to the Beatles' Apple label. 9 days earlier he had recorded a demo of the song, playing all the instruments and double tracking his voice in less than an hour. Originally it was supposed to be considered for the Abbey Road album, but instead he gave it to Badfinger who recorded it exactly as he had on the demo, and it became their first big hit. But imagine if it had been recorded by the Beatles and included on Abbey Road. Where would it have been placed? What do you think. . . should it have been included on Abbey Road instead of given to Badfinger? Check out the original Paul demo as well as a story about the recording.
