THE POP EXPOSE ‘THE POLICE ‘ by Mitchell Smith!

The Police are an English Rock band formed in London in 1977. The band consists of lead singer Sting, guitarist Andy Summers, and drummer Stewart Copeland. This was one of the most influential bands back in the late seventies and eighties. They had a number of hits including Roxanne, Message in a Bottle, and Every Breath You Take. One of my all-time favorite songs is one from their early days So Lonely. They had a very distinct sound from Sting’s vocals to the unique drum play from Copeland. Sting got his…

THE POP EXPOSE ‘Sharon Tate’ By Mitchell Smith!

Today I am going to revisit the tragic story of Sharon Tate. Recently I was watching the Pilot episode and various episodes after of The Beverly Hillbillies. This was a show I grew up watching as a kid and I had never seen any of the early episodes. What a great series this is, but that is a story for another day.

Get The Skinny on ‘ROCKETMAN’ (Spoiler Warning)!

Elton John, I was too young to remember him or too young for him to impact me. I do remember his music videos from the eighties and of course The Lion King Soundtrack. He is still standing. I went expecting (whoops) a documentary still autobiography or something like that. What you actually get is a Broadway play. It opens with Elton in his orange horned devil outfit. Elton is walking down a hallway and joins an addiction meeting. From there we start to see his past. Reginald, at a very…
