Bela Fleck And The Flecktones Concert
Number of words: 391 - Number of pages: 2

.... amazing, I was blown away. The music is a unique mixture of many different genres; jazz, rock, R&B and funk, to name a few. Much of the music had no singing and the songs were very long and complicated, involving different parts and many complicated solos. In between songs each musician performed solos on their instruments, which proved the talent, they held on their instruments even more. The bassist was the most impressive, though.

Substance Abuse And Musicians
Number of words: 507 - Number of pages: 2

.... have all they need? What led Brad Nowell (or any musician) to drugs? What are the fatalities of substance abuse in rock stars? The reason I am interested in this topic is not only because it can hold my interest, but I also want to see if I can analyze some reasons for turning to drugs. I am planning on majoring in psychology and I think this is part of the whole analysis that psychologists like to use. It can be kind of a practice for me.

Sweeney Todd
Number of words: 311 - Number of pages: 2

She needed the money and she fell in love with him. I first saw this musical when I was very young. It is still one of my favorites. George Hearn plays Sweeney Todd and his singing is great. But it is Angela Lansbury as Mrs. Lovett that I like best. I would recommend this mus .....

.... pub that they were in looked a lot like John Lennon. They also noted the young lady singing in the corner looked and sounded incredibly like Janice Joplin. The book or should I say short story continued on as only King could, people dying , strange conversations and just weirdness in general.
