It has been 46 years since the birth of British rockers, Magnum. In their infancy, it was not an easy task for founding members Tony Clarkin (guitar, songwriter) and Bob Catley (vocals) in keeping their dream alive.

LOVE N’ REVENGE – Karma (Album Review)

After taking a break from writing, I thought it was time to do a review on an album that I received earlier this year from Kivel Records. If you don’t know Kivel Records I would suggest you get on the site and check out all the amazing bands on the label. I was first introduced to Kivel‘s selections with a spectacular band called Tango Down, which is one of my most played CD’s released in 2016….
