Episode 201 - Top Ten Blues Rock Guitarists w/John O'Kennedy & Kevin Eldridge
Clean

There's a subtle art to brute force that must be addressed when describing the musical genre of blues rock. This fine line between beauty and heaviness can become a disaster if left in the hands of a crappy bar band (see the film Ghost World for a hilarious example of this nonsense. BLUES HAMMER FOREVER!). So how do you create quality, tasteful blues that really rocks? There's no doubt that the conversation must begin with a stellar guitarist. From Stevie Ray to Jimi (and Jimmy), this particular genre of music boasts some of the greatest guitarists in music history. They harness the power of rock, with the soul of the blues and make it work, spectacularly. Ben is joined in GoodList Studios by two of blues rock's biggest fanatics. John O'Kennedy and ATTT newcomer Kevin Eldridge bring the knowledge, and show off some killer licks of their own, live in the studio.

John O'Kennedy can be hired for his stage and studio wizardry, look for the man on Facebook.

Kevin Eldridge currently plays guitar in a number of bands all over Los Angeles. Find out more at:

Episode 199 - Top Ten Ben Folds Songs w/Maurice Bursztynski

Ben Folds is a jack of musical trades, and a master of practically all of them. The man is a phenomenal musician - his skills on the piano are only matched by his equally stellar bass playing and drumming. His songwriting chops are some of the best of anyone working today, and let's not forget his abilities to sing, produce, arrange and swear like a drunken sailor. Ben is joined via Skype from sweltering Melbourne, Australia by fellow Folds-head Maurice Bursztynski, who is as big of a fan of the man as Ben, and that's saying a lot. The two lads make their case for why Ben Folds is not only worthy of his own episode, but he's probably the most musically gifted artist working today.

Maurice is the co-host of two fabulous podcasts - the album discussion show Love That Album and See Hear, which explores the world of music in cinema. Find these on iTunes and at their respective websites.

Episode 198 - Top Ten Songs About The Future w/Chris Wolffing

We here at All Time Top Ten have some harsh news. Sorry to say it, but you, me and everyone on Earth will not be a part of the future. We'll never know what lies beyond our time. Even if you live to be 150 years old, you'll only know your past and present. The good news is we do have the present and if we're lucky, many more years of the present to come. The future, on the other hand, is only there for us to dream about, and it's not surprising that the future is a great concept for songwriters to play with. Jetpacks and hover boards, rocket ships and interstellar travel, disaster and armageddon, these are concepts of Songs About The Future. Ben is joined via Skype by longtime 'Pal Of The Podcast' Chris Wolffing to count down the most amazing futuristic songs ever written.

From The Archives - Episode 142 - Top Ten David Bowie Songs w/Gabe Scalone

Like the rest of the world, we here at All Time Top Ten were shocked and deeply saddened to hear of David Bowie's passing. We have to pay tribute to the man and this is the only way we know how. Here's our Bowie episode from November 2014.

In the annals of rock history, there has never been an artist as mercurial and elusive as David Robert Haywood Jones. David Bowie, aka Ziggy Stardust, aka The Thin White Duke is known and beloved by millions and has been in the spotlight for 45 years, yet what do we really know about the man? Only what he wants us to know. All we do know is that he's a musical and stylistic chameleon who has blessed the world with decades of great music. We know he's an ageless, timeless showman that was destined to be a rock superstar. Ben is joined by fellow Bowie fanatic Gabe Scalone to highlight the 20 best songs from a true rock legend. We're not worthy.

Almost every great album has this in common - they end in grand fashion. Whether it's an epic statement, with the singer howling from the mountaintops; or ending with a whisper, a pretty little bow placed on an amazing piece of art; an album-closer is a concept that is as important as any in the world of music. All of the best bands in rock and pop history have taken a stab at the signature classic album-ender, and we've got the best of the best. Ben is joined by that savant of rock, the almighty Fish, to break it all down.

Episode 194 - 2 Degrees Of Separation - Elvis Costello w/Jeff Axelrod

There are a few unique things about this week's hero, Elvis Costello. First off, his voice is unmistakable in pop music. Nobody else has that expressive but urgent quality that informs his vocal performances and has helped make songs like "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love & Understanding" such monumental achievements. Secondly, he's the most stylistically diverse artist this side of David Bowie. He's tackled every genre from punk and reggae to classical and jazz. Over the years, Elvis has worked with some of the best musicians, producers and songwriters on Earth. This "Elvis-verse" or the Elvis Costello Universe is the subject of today's podcast. Ben is joined by EC fan and aspiring rock historian Jeff Axelrod to bring you a 2nd volume of our "This Is Your Life" style show, and this week we're exploring the people orbiting the musical universe of our hero, Elvis. Put on your knowledge bib, your cup will runneth over.

Jeff and Ben did the "2 Degrees" treatment for Madonna back in Season 3. You can check it out at the archive page here:
