A few weeks back I got the idea of going to Wikipedia, typing in the name of a band, or more importantly a musician that I really liked, and clicking the search button. With the exception of some really obscure musicians I like, most of the time this produces some sort of write up on the history or discography of the musician. From there I look at side projects, collaboration efforts, and musical influences that I might not recognize the name of.
The first thing that caught my eye was a write up on a band called Blue Floyd that Marc was briefly part of. This band was described around the web as a blues take on Pink Floyd done by members of Gov't Mule, The Allman Brothers, and the Black Crowes.. Say what?!?!? That's pretty friggin cool. So I went over to their Myspace page (who knew this even existed anymore?!??!) and played some tunes.

Anyways, I think I'm going to try to do this a little bit more and write about it here on this blog. I found some really good tunes tonight and I'm interested in digging a little deeper into what some of these artists/bands have to offer, especially this Jason Lomheim guy. This is some remarkable stuff that gave me a great night of jamming out in the MacAloney Man Room.
