ON VINYL HBO

It should come as a surprise to absolute no one that a girl writing about rock 'n' roll is into anything that has to do with the lauded genre. And Scorsese and Jagger's new drama, entitled VINYL, is pure bacchanale (trailer available here). But I am not going to delve into the lush Scorseseisms and I am most definitely not going to analyse the assemblage of metaphors splashed across this 70s-fueled show. Let's leave the review to the folks over at Rolling Stone. But I am going to tell you this – it ain't pretty. For at least nine more episodes, the frontman of this show goes on a hedonistic rampage through the streets of New York. And you are going straight to Valhalla with him. After all, it's only rock 'n' roll – and you know you like it.
