Man forced to spend night in empty Las Vegas airport makes epic music video.

Man who got bumped from two Delta flights and found himself all alone in a totally empty Vegas airport overnight didn’t just try to sleep, he made an epic iPhone music video of Celine Dion’s horrible cover of the Eric Carmen song, “All by myself.”

Freddie Hubbard dies, leaves jazz world stuck with <shudder> Wynton Marsalis.

On December 29th, Freddie Hubbard, one of the last great jazz trumpet players, died after a heart attack at age 70. Growing up, I was a huge fan of Freddie. I used to listen to his records and play along (did I mention that I started playing trumpet when I was nine? Cuz I did).

The Tampa music scene.

One of Florida’s few hip and progressive traits has to be its music scene. Many of the local bands down here put on some bizarre stage shows. One funk-rock bands’ obviously Jewish lead singer (pertinent only because of his headgear) comes out covered with tattoos, wearing a choir robe and a Pope hat. Gotta love a guy with a sense of humor. On the other extreme is a band who’s main attraction has nothing to do with music.

I meet David Pack from Ambrosia.

As a huge fan of the musically progressive tunes produced by the 70’s band Ambrosia, I was gratified to learn that they had reunited (a seemingly inevitable occurrence for bands these days) and were playing in St. Petersburg. For free, no less. However, upon attending, I was dismayed to learn that they were playing in a small tent at an art fair. (Had I known this, I would’ve taped it…for personal use of course, Mr. FBI agent.)
