Friday's Playlist: Rhythm in Peace, Charlie Watts.



It's been almost four weeks since the beloved drummer passed away. Never a showy musician, Charlie Watts was nonetheless an incredible drummer as evidenced by the numbers in this playlist.

Upcoming gigs


Finally, concerts are back and so are we. After attending our first concert in almost twenty months on September 14th, we're gearing up for more. Check out what's next and get your next concert tickets HERE !

Robert Jon & the Wreck @ les Étoiles, Paris - September 14th, 2021



Finally. It had been twenty months since we last set foot in a concert hall (it was at the Zénith and the band was Tenacious D). Tonight we finally ended that dry spell and attended the Parisian return of Robert Jon & the Wreck.

Album Review: Iron Maiden - Senjutsu



Iron Maiden is one of the biggest Metal bands on the planet and any new album by them is going to create some trepidation among music fans. It's also inevitably going to be compared to the classics they produced in their mid-eighties heyday, and whether it is fair or unfair doesn't matter: it simply is. And let's be honest: in the eyes of the record-buying public, they are never going to recapture the magic of Piece of Mind or Powerslave.

Rhythm in Peace, Charlie Watts.






We just got the shitty, although not altogether unexpected, news that Charlie Watts passed away earlier today.

Of course, dying at the age of 80, after a lifetime of accomplishments, a successful career, and a beautiful family is perhaps not a tragedy.

But, man, is it ever sad. Charlie Watts. The Stones just lost their Roll. As awesome as the songs are, as commanding as Jagger is onstage, as cool as Keith's riffs are, the real backbone of "the World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band" (tm) has always been Charlie and Keith's interplay.

Friday's Playlist: Pretty Songs



In contrast to last week's playlist, this Friday's entry focuses on beautiful, delicate songs. No agression, no heavily distorted guitars, no blast beats. A little respite from the brutality of everyday life.

Friday's Playlist: Happy Birthday Maggot Brain



July 12th was the 50th anniversary of the release of one of the trippiest, grooviest, best, most influential records in pop music history. Funkadelic'a Maggot Brain was a melting pot of funk, soul, rock, psychedelia, drug culture, hippie idealism, Black Power politic, hendrixian guitars, jingles and anthems.

 It was about time we featured the bass guitar. We've done quite a few playlists centered around the guitar (HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE) so in that spirit here's some of the greatest bass guitar solos or lead breaks.

Friday's Playlist: Songs from the Brill Building

The Brill Building is an Art Deco building in New York City, and is famous for having housed a number of music industry offices where composers and lyricists would write the hits of yesteryear. While not rock and roll exactly, these songwriters' impact on popular music in general cannot be overstated.

Friday's Playlist: Happy New Year and Fuck 2020



Finally, the new year is upon us. We all agree that 2020 was shit, and sadly there are no do-overs. So let's wipe the slate clean, shall we? Start fresh. Let's say this year is going to be at least a little better than last year. Can we try that?

Curtain Call


Given the fact that the virus is still spreading and that there will be no concerts for the foreseeable future, this page really has no reason to exist.

We've tried prolonging its lifeline by throwing together playlists, starting an ill-fated message board, posting about exhibits etc. but the whole raison d'être of www.ElectricEyeRock.com was to publish concert photos...

So there will likely be no more updates on the site or the associated social channels until we can return to a normal life. If we can return to a normal life.


There will be one more playlist on New Year's Day, because it's been planned for a while (although still a work in progress) but essentially this is going to remain inactive for the foreseeable future.


I never had any pretension of this ever being viable, it was just a way to get to enjoy concerts from a privileged perspective: the photo pit. And it's been awesome: I've managed to get credentialed for a shitload of great gigs and taken a few cool pictures (my favorite ones are HERE) so it's been pretty great. It would be cool if it happened again.


In the mean time stay safe and don't forget to wash your hands!
