The links, the links, the links are on fire:

Pete at IckMusic serves up some sweet, live Steve Earle (featuring The Boss!), then makes me actually think about buying a Kenny Wayne Shepherd release.

Kurt at Kurt’s Krap finds out, the hard way, that only the good die young…and then things get ugly. Keep fighting the good fight, Kurt!

Idolator makes with some white-rapper wisdom, Vanilla Ice style.

Betty Rocker finishes her list of Top 50 sad, sad songs.

Py Korry gets geeked about the Police reunion, then helps us say a fond farewell to Molly Ivins.

John from Lost in the ’80s finds something kind of sweet (and also deeply disturbing) on YouTube.

Taylor for T-Sides reviews a concert as only she can.

And, of course, what I’m reviewing at Bullz-Eye this week…
