That Thing You Do! One of my favorite rock and roll movies ever. This movie featuring Tom Hanks, Tom Everett Scott, LIv Tyler and Charlize Theron is the quintessential movie about a band who makes it big with a one-hit-wonder during the Summer of 1964. The era is one of my favorites and I feel some great music came along during the early 60’s. There are also some great cameo’s in this movie too. If you haven’t seen it, check it out!


Huey Lewis and The News: “Sports”..30 Years Of Musical Memories


Huey Lewis and The News put out a record (as we called them back in the day) called Sports. It was their third album and the one that made them global superstars. It was loaded with hits. “Heart and Soul”, “The Heart of Rock and Roll”, “I Want A New Drug”, “If This Is It” are all awesome songs that have stood the test of time. 


It was a Billboard number one record and went platinum 7 times. I love it because its rock with some blues influences. This was the music I grew up listening to. I was 14 in 1983 Huey Lewis and The News were a huge part of the soundtrack of my life.
