  • Amypalooza - Dead Bands Reincarnated

    Bands that rocked before they died.

    Am I morbid for thinking about my dream Lollapalooza of dead artists? I know the answer but hear me out- with Lollapalooza in our rear view mirror (Aug 2-3 Grant park, Chicago) a festival of tremendous musicians alive and well, I thought what if I were to formulate my very own –Lollapalooza of great dead bands who either no longer exist thanks to the angel of death or they are trying to exist even after a major death in the band….I hope you will find it as fascinating as I did to read through how these great rock stars came to pass. And it’s not even Halloween….
