Bloodmoon 2019 – the day after

What is a Bloodmoon

When the moon is in Earth’s core shadow, the Earth takes direct light radiation from the Sun away from the moon. As a result, the moon changes color.

Why red?

Sunlight is distracted (broken) by Earth’s atmosphere and short-wave blue light is scattered in such a way that they do not reach the moon. However, long-wave red light parts reach the moon, making it shine red. A blood moon always goes hand in hand with the full moon.

Fun with Paul McCartney – and more underground

Paul McCartney – für FUN zu haben

Der ehemalige Bassist der Beatles `Sir´ Paul McCartey ist mit seinen 76 Lebensjahren noch sehr aktiv. Was an seinem Spielstil auffällt ist, dass er die Gitarre auf der rechten Seite abgreift, was nur sehr wenige Musiker tun. Wie ist er zur Musik gekommen? Was waren seine ersten musikalischen Einflüsse, als er mit John Lennon eine Schülerband gründete?

The former bassist of The Beatles `Sir ´ Paul McCartey is still very active with his 76 years of life. It is quite special about his playing style that he picks up the guitar on the right hand side, which very few musicians do. How did he come to music? What were his first musical influences when he started a student band with John Lennon?

Schlagzeuglegende Jon Hiseman – Nachruf

Schlagzeuglegende Jon Hiseman ist am 12. Juni 2018 gestorben

Er wurde 73 Jahre alt und starb an den Folgen einer Gehirn-Tumor Operation. Bei seiner Abschiedstour durch Deutschland mit Colosseum konnte ich ihn noch persönlich sprechen bei einer Tasse Tee, auf die er nach dem Auftritt großen Wert lag. Dabei war er als einer der weltbesten seiner Zunft an Bescheidenheit und `trockenem Humor´ nicht zu übertreffen.

Have a look at my English article about Jon from 2016 (follow the link):

Jon Hiseman Zitat

„Das Beste, was Europa passieren konnte, ist die Europäische Union.“ (unbritische Ansicht in einem ZEIT-Interview 2007)

Nachruf

Die Worte von Andrew Lloyd Webber sagen alles über Jon:

Das ist ein gewaltiger Schock. Jon Hisemans großartiges Spiel untermauerte mein „Variations“-Album und er war ein wichtiges Mitglied der ursprünglichen Cats- und Starlight Express-Bands. Ich werde für immer in der Schuld dieses phänomenalen und zutiefst menschlichen Musikers stehen.“

Mit seiner `Schlagzeugkunst´ lebt er in uns weiter

Back to the roots with Blues

„“Little Red Rooster“ (or „The Red Rooster“ as it was first titled) is a blues standard credited to arranger and songwriter Willie Dixon. The song was first recorded in 1961 by American blues musician Howlin‘ Wolf in the Chicago blues style.

The Rolling Stones were among the first British rock groups to record modern electric blues songs. In 1964, they recorded „Little Red Rooster“ with original member Brian Jones, a key player in the recording“ (Wikipedia).
