Aaron Thomas is really something else. I stumbled on him while trolling though the pages of eMusic recently. Thomas is a singer-songwriter with a bit of a folk like flare accompanied by emotional lyrics. Although he is a bit aloof, as he only seems to have a myspace page, if I were a record label I would be all over his nuts like a squirrel looking for acorns.

In 1972, Lou Reed was a minor cult hero to a handful of rock critics and left-of-center music fans who championed his former band, the Velvet Underground, but he was unknown to the mainstream music audience. By 1986, Reed was a rock & roll icon, widely hailed as a master songwriter and one of the founding fathers of punk, glam, noise rock, and any number of other vital rock subgenres; he even scored a few hits along the way.

This superb double CD set has a wealth of tracks that coverstheir career, featuring early single releases from 1965 as well as hits from 1967-68, tracks from their ‘Paradise Lost’ album and other earlyrecordings.
Melodic metal (often used synonymously with hair metal, glam metal and pop metal) is widely considered to be a big-city phenomenon, born out of such urban landscapes as Philadelphia (Cinderella), Seattle (Bloodgood), New York (Winger) and, of course, Los Angeles (Stryper, Quiet Riot, Guns N’ Roses and a host of others too numerous to mention).
