Glorious Noise Is 17

Time flies. Seventeen years? Crazy. GLONO is the same age as the lead singer of my favorite band. There are kids in bands today who weren’t even born when we started this. That blows my mind. I remember turning 17 the summer before my senior year of high school. John Cougar had told us to … Continue reading Hey What’s Up? Glorious Noise Is 17

Wrapping up a lousy year: 2017 http://gloriousnoise.com/2017/wrapping-up-a-lousy-year-2017 http://gloriousnoise.com/2017/wrapping-up-a-lousy-year-2017#respond Fri, 29 Dec 2017 14:35:08 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=16252 Wrapping up a lousy year: 2017

A lot of people died this year. This happens every year, and we’re all gonna die someday, of course, but it’s still a drag that we’re no longer inhabiting the same plane of existence as Chuck Berry and Fats Domino. We also lost Glen Campbell, Tom Petty, Walter Becker, Grant Hart, Clyde the Funky Drummer … Continue reading Wrapping up a lousy year: 2017

When we first launched Glorious Noise in February 2001 the country had just inaugurated a Republican president who had lost the popular vote after a bitter, draining campaign. My pals and I were not optimistic about the future. We’ve written at length about the origins of this site, about the influence of Vanity Fair’s “Rock … Continue reading Glorious Noise Turns Sweet 16

Our Missing Jay Bennett Interview Is Back http://gloriousnoise.com/2012/our-missing-jay-bennett-interview-is-back http://gloriousnoise.com/2012/our-missing-jay-bennett-interview-is-back#comments Tue, 28 Feb 2012 14:43:45 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=8578 Our Missing Jay Bennett Interview Is Back

A little housekeeping, folks. When we converted from MovableType to WordPress, it seems we lost some of our early, featured content. We didn’t really “lose” it but we definitely orphaned it. If readers and search engines can’t find it, it’s lost for all intents and purposes. A reader contacted us last night to point out … Continue reading Our Missing Jay Bennett Interview Is Back

One year ago for our tenth anniversary, we took a little break. A sabbatical. After six months with nary a peep, we quietly started publishing stuff again. And we’ve been posting stuff fairly regularly since then. The break was nice. It gave us time to migrate from MovableType to WordPress. We also switched hosts from … Continue reading Glorious Noise is 11 years old today
