Rob Ross has been, for good, bad or indifferent, involved in the music industry for over 30 years - first as guitarist/singer/songwriter with The Punch Line, then as freelance journalist, producer and manager to working for independent and major record labels. He resides in Staten Island, New York with his wife and cats; he works out a lot, reads voraciously, loves Big Star and his orange Gretsch. Doesn't that make him neat?
Radio City with Jon Grayson and Rob Ross: Episode Thirty Four
There’s never any time to rest between shows and once again, Jon and Rob come up with another riveting, interesting, thought-provoking and at times, downright hilarious conversation. The duo start off with D.W. Dunphy’s excellent Popdose piece on internet trolls in the wake of Tom Petty’s passing; the “1984 – American Underground…” series continues with Meat Puppets II (the one that always got under the radar); the fall T.V. season is upon us and there are a few shows worth mentioning – especially since ABC has an interesting one, “The Good Doctor”; Curt Weiss’ book about Jerry Nolan of The New York Dolls/the “other” Heartbreakers, Stranded In The Jungle – Jerry Nolan’s Wild Ride; Brothers Prince new 3 song E.P.; Sean Kelly of A Fragile Tomorrow goes solo – video debut for “Syncopation” with a very personal interview by Rob; of course, President Dumbass’ travels in Puerto Rico and Las Vegas and the phenomenon known as “In Our Heads”.
You always get more value than you ever bargain for with Jon and Rob. So kick back, enjoy and let your mind be soothed by the wisdom imparted by these boys…
