Power Songs As Heard Through the Decades

It’s from the theory: if you support a side project then that’ll become the main band and you’ll lose the bigger band. Hence, Gorillaz. I’m here to tell you that theory is wrong. Side projects are very much present in today’s music scene. And a … Continue reading Music Monday: Famous Band Side Projects
