After months of delays…much like my work on the book itself…we’ve finally launched our Kickstarter project to fund the completion of The Other Side of Nashville. Subtitled “An Incomplete History and Discography of the Nashville Rock Underground, 1976-2006,” the book includes entries on several hundred of the Music City’s talented artists and complete listings for literally hundreds of albums, tapes, and CDs as well as my own personal recollections and pithy commentary on many of them.
Check out The Other Side of Nashville Kickstarter page and watch my crudely-made video, in which I beg for alms to help complete the book project. After donating, I’d appreciate it if you could share this link with your Facebook friends, email it to everybody you’ve ever remotely known, and spread the word in any manner possible. Thanks, and keep on rockin’!
Progressive rock fell out of favor with the mainstream audience decades ago, but the genre has managed to thrive and survive in the rock music underground, picking up steam in recent years and appealing to an entire generation of young new fans searching for honest music.
Prog 2010 covers a “A Decade of Progressive Rock & Metal 2001-2010” and features hundreds of album reviews and artist interviews with some of the best and the brightest prog talents from the first decade of the new progressive century. Among the artists interviewed, you’ll find Steve Hackett, Steve Babb (Glass Hammer), Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), Devon Townsend, Neal Morse, and many more, as well as reviews of over 100 CDs, essays, and a list of “essential prog-rock recordings.”
Authors Tommy Hash and Rev. Keith A. Gordon have been covering prog rock for years in spite of the ridicule of prog non-believers.
The “Hashman” has been preaching the gospel of underground music through various print magazines and online for better than a decade, including notable prog website Ytsejam.com and Melodic Rock music zine. Rev. Keith A. Gordon is an award-winning rock critic and music journalist with four decades experience walking the pop culture beat.
