The Murphy’s Law blog is dedicated to the love and appreciation of music, and I’m honored to partner with living legend Cerphe Colwell here at Talk Planet Radio. Cerphe’s wisdom steered me in the right direction from a very early age, and I know I’m one of many whose passion for rock music owes a debt of gratitude to DC’s favorite DJ. My goal with these posts is honest and simple: to celebrate many of the amazing artists whose work has transformed culture and enhanced our lives. As such, comments, questions and discussions are encouraged, and if you don’t see a group or album you think warrants attention, let me know…there’s a decent chance I’ve covered it at some point over the last two decades! Rock on!
