Props to Jefito

Have to give a shout out to one of my favorite sites out there, Jefitoblog, a phenomenal music website that provides some excellent selections of music for readers. I was first introduced to the site some time last year when EW online mentioned Jeff’s “Idiot’s Guide to Hall and Oates”. I thought it was a joke at first. I mean, who would devote more than a couple of sentences to Daryl and John? As I read his breakdown of each of their albums, I realized that Jeff wasn’t making fun of Philly’s sons, but offering a real criticism of their catalog. This is something that would never happen at Rolling Stone or any of the other BIG music sources. As I came back to the site every day, I discovered that here was a guy who loves music. He GETS music. And that’s what he’s writing about. It’s not about who is the most appreciated and deserves the accolades. Sure, he covers Springsteen and the like, but it’s also about the gut and the heart. That’s why groups like Styx, Toto. Bruce Hornsby and Robert Palmer get equal time.

But don’t check out his sit just on Tuesdays when he’s offering up the Idiot’s guide. Check in on Wednesdays when he actually reviews new music. Or Thursdays with the brilliant “Cutouts Gone Wild”. And every Friday Jeff offers up some outstanding bootlegs for people to listen to.

This is a great site, and I’m not just saying that because he let me write a Journey Guide. It’s great because Jeff writes for the fans and appreciates the people that support him.

Okay, enough of my yappin. Go there now.
