I’ve been told not to meet my heroes. “Your heroes will disappoint you,” they say. “They won’t be heroic. They’ll be divas. They’ll be dull. Don’t do it, save that pristine image of how cool they are in your head!” Still, like a lot of good advice I’ve been given in my life – such as, “Don’t major in English,” and “Logan, get down from there!” – I chose to ignore it.
And, thank God, Travis Stever and Zach Cooper of Coheed and Cambria were some of the nicest, most gracious, and humblest dudes I’ve ever met.
Tonight we have Donald Kinsey on the show. You may know him as a member of The Wailers or The Kinsey Report. He’s stepping into the studio to chat and talk about a show Saturday at the Uli’s Haus of Rock! Chicago blues and new blues are on the menu tonight!

New Orleans indie rock duo Generationals perfectly mix elements of 60’s flower power with the indie rock of the early 2000’s. The band gained a decent amount of notoreity after being featured in two commercials including one for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and one for Bloomingdale’s. You can hear a track of theirs as the opening song for the 2010 film Going The Distance as well. With two albums and an EP under their belt, Generationals show no sign of stopping their onslaught of happy, guitar driven indie rock. Check out the song “When They Fight, They Fight” off their 2009 debut album Con Law below. Read More…
